If you haven’t heard of Bikram Yoga...where have you been?! Yoga is a brilliant form of exercise that holistically focuses on your health, wellbeing and inner peace. Bikram is an intensive and additional challenge to yoga and is practised in heat of between 35 to 40 degrees C – very very warm! It really is a lot of fun and if you take your health seriously, Bikram Yoga is something you should try at least once.

Now, there’s no point in trying to make boot camp sound easy because to put it bluntly, it isn’t! You’re challenged with lots of high-intensity workouts but rewarded by feeling 110% supercharged after. This fantastic alternative to the gym is about camaraderie.

Climbing and Bouldering
Bouldering is rock-climbing but done indoors without harnesses or ropes. Instead you have shoes with extra strong grip, lots of chalk, safety mats, the support of your friends, determination and your strength. This exercise will improve your total body strength and when you’re brave enough to conquer those height fears, you’ll be having more fun than you realise!
Prices start from £7.50 per session.
Not forgetting what Wimbledon is famous for – tennis! It’s great that you have the All England Lawn Tennis Club nearby, but even better and just walking distance from the school is the Wilton Tennis Club (http://www.wiltontennisclub.co.uk/) where you can play on the courts for free simply because you’re a student at Wimbledon School of English.
Whether you’re a novice or an expert, there’s no better way to improve your fitness than playing tennis at Wimbledon! Speak to our reception staff for more details.
