In London we are the masters of transforming disused spaces into community hubs that have the ability to shape the surrounding area, and Peckham Levels is a stunning example of this. Set up in a disused carpark, it now houses food outlets, office space, bars, art studios, event spaces and the beautiful LEVELSIX yoga studios and cafe.
LEVELSIX is the brainchild of four yoga-mad entrepreneurs who wanted to bring a space of wellness, movement and calm to the vibrant area of Peckham. Community is at the heart of their offering, with the studio housed in a beautiful space where people can come together, practice yoga, and eat good food.
The class schedule is packed with a variety of classes ranging from yin yoga, dynamic vinyasa and yoga nidra to name but a few. I checked out Will Wheeler’s dynamic flow on Saturday morning, which turned out to be a workout for the mind and body. With a mindfully slow start to the class, we eased into the hour, before moving into a fast-paced flow which worked every muscle group and challenged your strength, agility and focus. We finished with some blissful opening postures before collapsing into a well-deserved savasana. It’s no surprise that Will’s class was full, with a group of local devotees alongside yogis who travel across the city to join in the fun.
Refuelling at the cafe afterwards was a delight. We enjoyed fresh green juices, packed full of veg and a big bowl of homemade granola and yoghurt. It was delicious and healthy; enough to leave you walking out of that carpark feeling aptly smug and ready to smash the weekend.
If you haven’t yet visited Peckham Levels yet, now is the time to get down, get your zen on and fuel up on food that tastes as good as it looks. We loved LEVELSIX and we’ll be going back again and again.
