It’s a rainy Monday evening in central London, and for the first time in 15 months a queue is forming outside Farringdon club fabric. It’s still a few weeks before the much-fêted “Freedom Day”, when the last of the UK’s lockdown restrictions will be lifted and the nation’s nightlife venues will be allowed to open once more, so the small crowd isn’t here to party.
They’re about to do a yoga class on the hallowed dance floor of one of the capital’s most famous clubs. It might seem like an odd choice to host a vinyasa flow class in a nightclub when London is blessed with an abundance of yoga studios, but this isn’t your average daily practice. Tonight’s class is hosted by The Rogue Room, a new wellness brand which aims “to merge the transcendence of yoga and the euphoric power of music”.
