Dead Yogis Society - Ep VII: Presence Not Presents

  • crypt on the Green EC1R 0EA London, United Kingdom (map)

For our Christmas special we'll be interrupting 'silly season' to ask you to give the gift of presence. 

Christmas. A time when everyone goes a bit overboard, forgets all about aparigraha (non-coveting) and looks forward to weeks of celebration, culminating in the ultimate indulgence - Christmas Day. The last of any good habits we've managed to retain for the year get forgotten about because we can pick them up again come January in the form of a 'New Year's Resolution'. 

But not this year. 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.

This time we raise funds for The Spitalfields Crypt Trust – a charity who have been supporting the homeless, as well as people recovering from addiction for the last 50 years, by helping them to get clean and sober, develop self-respect and hope for a much better future. The best thing about supporting this particular charity? They're a small East London based charity where your donations will make the world of difference to someone's Christmas. 

Come together, breathe together, sweat, fly and die together. With a bit of tinsel on.

£20 limited number of early Dead Yogis tickets available, £25 thereafter. All profits go towards helping those in need. 

Christmas hats and festive cheer encouraged. 


THE CHARITY - Profits all get donated to Spitalfields Crypt Trust - 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. 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 re-hydrate you afterwards, but please remember to bring water if you require it during the practice :)
