We’ve heard of yoga with goats, but what about yoga with dinosaurs? You can now find your zen at a yoga class at the Natural History Museum in South Kensington…

The Natural History Museum has teamed up with yoga studio East of Eden for a series of yoga classes with a difference.

These morning yoga classes will be held in the impressive Hintze Hall, under the mighty, 25-metre blue whale skeleton which hangs in the hall’s ceiling.

A gong will follow the yoga session, and you will also have exclusive access to the gallery while closed to the public.

The hall also is home to an American mastodon, the elephant’s ancestor from the Ice Age, a rare Atlantic blue marlin, one of the oldest complete dinosaur fossils in the UK, and a rock as old as the solar system. Pretty cool, huh?

Classes are suitable for all levels and yogis must bring their own mats, but you must be aged 16 or older to go.

The May class has already sold out, however you can join the waiting list at

Further classes are scheduled for July 10 and September 4, with both classes running from 8am-9.15pm.

Each class will be available online.

Address: Natural History Museum, Cromwell Road, SW7 5BD
Tickets: £35/£31.50 adult/member
