Yoga With A Twist: Equinox’s Awesome Yoga Session At The Design Museum

Here’s one for those who carry out their everyday tasks in their active-wear… It’s 7am, you’re scrolling through insta and a bombardment of sunrise yoga images and downward dogs left, right and centre flood your feed.

Well, it’s time to limber up because an Equinox yoga sesh at the Design Museum is the answer!

Most of us only play tennis on hard courts, they’re cheap to build and maintain and they’re the most widely available to rank amateurs like me and, probably, you. Fewer of us have the opportunity to regularly play on grass courts, a type of tennis that’s a lot faster, less predictable and, let’s […]
