DAY OF THE DEAD
For our one year anniversary special, we mark 'Mexican Day of the Dead' - Día de Muertos.
Day of the Dead celebrates life, death and the places in between; honouring our ancestors and helping the deceased on their spiritual journey.
Join us in the Crypt, where we continue to focus on the yoga of action – karma yoga. Give up your energy and dedicate your practice to the benefit of others.
Day of the Dead traditionally being a time for feasting, we raise funds for Magic Breakfast – a charity who aim to end hunger as a barrier to education in UK schools through the provision of healthy breakfasts.
Come together, breathe together. Sweat, fly and die together.
Bring a friend and don't make any plans afterwards.
£15 limited number of early Dead Yogis tickets available, £20 thereafter. All profits go towards feeding the kids.
Day of the Dead accessories / fancy dress encouraged.
THE CHARITY - ProfIts all get donated to Magic Breakfasts - see website for information.
THE PRACTICE - Rocket: a sweaty, dynamic flow based on the Ashtanga system. We'll be led through a relay practice by four of London's best Rocket yoga teachers: the 'old guard' - Marcus Veda and Katarina Rayburn, and fresh blood - Emma Cowpe and Morgan Gillespie. Practice will be accompanied by Cherub and Tim's (Insta: cherub_soundmind) magical sound journey of life and death. Expect gongs and a whole lot more.
TIME - doors open at 6:15pm, practice starts at 6.30pm. We aim to finish by 8:45/9pm ish.
MATS - we do provide some mats, but if you would prefer to bring your own, please do!
CHANGING ROOMS - there are changing rooms, but no showers
WEAR - whatever you can stretch and get sweaty in. It's not a catwalk.
We will have the usual 'Poncey Water' on hand to rehydrate you afterwards, but please remember to bring water if you require it during the practice :)

When & Where
The Dead Yogis Society
The Dead Yogis Society is a bunch of people getting together for an experience. We don't care if you've never done yoga before, or if you can float from graceful arm-balance to arm balance. We don't care if you're vacuum-packed in designer yoga gear, or in your vest 'n' pants. No one's looking, and it'll be too dark to see anyway.
We're trying to strip back to the core of yoga - to breathe, sweat, fly, laugh and die together. For charity.
