This Buddhist centre is a beautiful, colour-filled sanctuary in South East London.
What to Bring
We are very well equipped with mats, bolsters, blankets, cushions, sheepskins and eye pillows and blocks, so you do not need to bring any yoga kit at all with you, unless you are especially attached to your own blanket/sheepskin, in which case, please do bring them along too to be extra super comfy.
Places to Eat
There are restaurants and cafes in the local area. There is a lovely vegetarian café in the centre, which serves cakes and teas (including the nourishing Tibetan Butter Tea) throughout the day, and at lunch usually a soup of the day or panini option.
