The Hot Yoga Society Big Weekender is coming to London Bridge this March, to kick-start your way into the new season with four days of mindfulness and body goodness...and a special guest visit from the infamous US yoga teacher and empowering body positive advocate Jessamyn Stanley.

“We are extremely excited to welcome Jessamyn to the Hot Yoga Society, her passion, positivity and empowering messages are exactly what our brand ethos encompasses and strives to transmit to our members!” Olga Allon, Founder

Known for using high energy vinyasa flow as a way to move past mental and emotional barriers, Jessamyn’s first experience into yoga was through the discovery of Bikram yoga. Her body positive approach to yoga celebrates students’ bodies encouraging them to ask the question of “How do I feel?” not “How do I look?”

Exclusive to the Hot Yoga Society, Jessamyn’s signature classes* include ‘Heart-Opening Vinyasa’ (60 min) and ‘Turn It Upside Down’ Workshop: Including the basics of inverted yoga (120 mins) and no experience of inversions needed!

It doesn’t stop at Yoga! Not only does The Hot Yoga Society offer a range of yoga and hot room classes, it also helps provide a 360 degree view on wellbeing via Mindfulness Meditation and nutritional workshops – empowering members to feel great and at ease with themselves.
