Hi there, i've just recently moved to the area, and wondered if anyone and everyone who knows the whereabouts of gyms/yoga/pilates/classes/Salsa lessons/Badminton/Meditation etc could post them here - that way we can all make a more informed choice.
My contribution to start things off is:
Thanks - that's got loads of other info on it - please add any other one-off classes, or if you've found a gym (or class etc) that's already on the list to be particularly good, please comment upon why you like it.
The Allwell Centre (http://www.allwellcentre.com) just off Bermondsey Street has lots going on - strength and conditioning training and chi gung. Check it out - it's highly professional and good value.
There are yoga sessions on Wednesday lunchtimes at the Coin Street neighbourhood centre from 1-2pm. The sessions are run by Aniko Nagy who has been teaching Zen Essence yoga for twelve years. £30 for five week blocks.
There used to be really good yoga sessions in a building at the top of Bermondsey street (almost opposite the tunnel). They were advertised in Time out at the time and different classes were on every day.
There is a brilliant pilates class at Hankey hall in Hankey place which is just off Long Lane every Thursday at 10am. It is closed now for August. The price is £2 per session and the teacher is very well trained. She completely got rid of my lower back pains and I now sport a flatter tummy! She is back again early September.
