Edgware Road / Marylebone (North)

Marylebone Road is noisy enough to have you running for the taps of the twotwentytwo straight away. Things get calmer (meaning duller) further north, but Mandalay's inexpensive Burmese treats save the north end of Edgware Road, while The Sea Shell of Lisson Grove does fine fish. And did we mention the great detective? Baker Street, dear Watson, Baker Street.

Total Chi Yoga Bar
You'd think that a yoga class would be relaxing, invigorating maybe, but definitely a mindful experience. Yet so many classes today are crammed full, with little one-on-one attention to make sure you're not doing yourself damage, and of course, always that girl (or guy). You know the one, clad in Lululemon, effortlessly weaving her limbs into binds which make the rest of us want to give up. We know, we should be focusing inwardly and not comparing ourselves to the rest of the class, but it happens. Total Chi is not one of those places. Classes contain no more than six people so you get the sense of actually being tutored and the two small studios are wonderfully light and warm (another bugbear of mine -- freezing cold community halls). I had an incredibly reaffirming yin yoga session, frequently and wrongly identified as "the more relaxing one" -- holding those postures is tough! But even though I hadn't attended a class in some months, my teacher Fern Ross guided me through with humour and gentle strength, getting my muscles supple so I felt safe with my practice whilst also getting lost in the flow. I left feeling suitably stretched but lighter on my feet. Oh, and it's called a yoga bar because you can pick up a delicious smoothie/coffee/kombucha upstairs on your way out.
