Teacher Training Programs
There are three levels of training to Universal Yoga, each 100 hours in duration. While Level 1 and Level 2 is primarily geared towards intricacies of asana and vinyasa practices of Mandala Yoga, Level 3 is exclusively internal practices of skillful meditation towards Kundalini awakening and Karmik liberation.
Level 1 training is for serious yoga practitioners who want to wake up their consciousness and learn from the profound lineage of Universal Yoga. The program is also for currently certified yoga teachers, who want to further their education and teaching skills from a Yoga Master and legend of modern times. Guruji Lappa’s Universal Yoga program is a Yoga Alliance Accredited 300-hour advanced program and successful participants (who already have a 200-hour credential) can receive a 500-hour certification.
Let yourself be embraced by luxurious 500-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets and fluffy down duvets. In each closet, you’ll find lambswool angora blankets and two or more bespoke chambray robes. Each towel, no matter the size, is 600-gram cotton terry for extra absorbency and softness. All our linens are made by UK bedding artisans Stella & Co.
It's no secret that some hotel shampoos and soaps make you dry and itchy. We approached independent soap makers Fine Cloud to craft lavender, rose, shea butter, and coconut oil-based toiletries that leave your hair and skin soft, smooth, and smelling great. We also have fragrance-free, avocado butter varieties for those with allergies.
Fine Dining On-Site
Our hotel is inspired by the global mid-century modern design movement, and in turn, our on-site restaurant and café, Continental, is influenced by cuisines around the world. Famous for her fusion dishes, head chef Layla Wu creates seasonal menus that still have a little bit of English flair. That’s right, you can still get your fish and chips, but don’t be surprised to taste a little tarragon.
The mixologists at our bar, Refill, create innovative and delicious cocktails with a chemist’s precision. Beers crafted by London’s best breweries are on tap and rotated monthly to keep our selections interesting. We also have a small stage where musicians and entertainers of all kinds perform for the sensory delight of our guests.
