Drop and Give Me Zen: Our London Wellness Guide

Chloe Jagger

Looking for a health kick this spring? There’s no question that the wellness industry is booming. In London it’s really taking off, with a host of new go-to raw eateries, yoga classes and high-tech facials popping up.

Whether you’re on a detox, aiming to unwind, or just looking for some new local haunts, we've tried and tested the best of the best to give you a round-up of our favourite wellness spots in London.

From raw cakes in Sloane Square to sipping juice mocktails in Shoreditch, here's our insider guide on how to get zen in the city.

To refuel: By CHLOE

After gaining a cult-like following in the US, By CHLOE has set up in shop in Covent Garden and has already garnered a legion of loyal 'gram fans.

Known for plant-based, fast-casual eating, this environmentally-friendly restaurant is redefining what it means to eat well and eat vegan. If you have the chance to go, try the Guac Burger or the more photogenic Quinoa Taco Salad. Your feed will thank you.

To rejuvenate: FaceGym

Smack bang in the middle of the King's Road FaceGym has gained a reputation as a Fashion Editor go-to.

Offering 30-minute workouts for those looking for a ‘finger face-lift’ (like your normal facial, with more pummelling). Its signature workout is the simplest treatment and comprises a warm-up, cardio, sculpt and cool-down, much like a standard gym class. No, this isn’t a relaxing experience, but then going to the gym isn’t meant to be.

To let loose: Redemption

For when it's 6 o'clock somewhere but you're on a detox, Redemption offers the best range of antioxidizing, superfood-filled mocktail drinks that we've come across.

Coming in every shade of the rainbow and bursting with vitamin goodness, we suggest not leaving without ordering the jackfruit coconut curry too.

To get into nature: PRICK

PRICK is London's first cactus and succulent boutique.

Instagram friendly with its bright airy space and enviable pottery, this neighbourhood favourite is the perfect place to pop by if you have a few minutes to kill, fancy splurging on some living homewares or just need to brighten up your feed.

To get creative: The Flower Appreciation Society

Want to try something new and get creative? Coming into spring, there's no better time to try your hand at flower arranging.

Workshops take place in the founding duo's artsy Hackney studio and come complete with homemade lemon drizzle cake and a cup of Earl Grey - what's not to love?

Choose from the 'Flower Headdress Making' class to the full one-day 'Introduction To Floristry'.

To indulge: The Hardihood

Let's be real: who doesn't love cake? Stocked in health-food meccas all over London (try Whole Foods or Selfridges), Hardihood is the green way to indulge.

Using the freshest ingredients to create pretty, pastel-hued raw, gluten- and dairy-free desserts, Hardihood's treats look almost too good to eat.

Not sure which concoction to try? We recommend you buy one of the Pistachi-Oh! squares or Chocolate Fudge Pie pudding.

To unwind: Glasshouse Salon

Tucked right next to London Field's trendy Broadway Market, Glasshouse Salon is known for its cruelty-free organic products and a green mindset to go with it.

Complete with millennial-pink lights and stacked with succulents, this salon is a pioneer in London's green beauty scene.

Even if you don’t need a cut or colour (although make an appointment if you do), they also offer a range of organic beauty, skin and hair products.

Book an appointment and their in-house experts will give you personalised advice on how to rejuvenate your everyday routine with eco-friendly alternatives.

To work out: Fierce Grace

Want to become a yogi like Gwyneth? Fierce Grace is the place to go.

Designed to be accessible and effective for every age and fitness level, Fierce Grace has multiple locations across the city (Brixton and Old Street are the most central).

Choose from the ‘Fierce Grace’ its 90-minute signature class or if you really want a challenge take a look at ‘The Wild’, an intense hour of yoga-influenced cardio and strength training. No pain, no gain.

To try something new: ChromaYoga

Whale music and Tibetan sound bowls not your thing? Then maybe a multicolour yoga class will shake up your chakras.

Based in research into colour and light therapy, ChromaYoga offers a range of super-fun classes that are categorised by colour - choose from Red to the multicolour Ganzsound.

There really is something for everyone - even the biggest gym-phobes.
