Hip Hop Rooftop Yoga Brunch with Jonelle Lewis


Book now

Join us for a Hip Hop Rooftop Yoga Brunch hosted by resident Yogarise yogini Jonelle Lewis and The Urban Kitchen.
Jonelle will guide you through a dynamic and playful 75 minute class with a soundtrack filled with old school and new school hip hop favourites. We will practice a Mandala Vinyasa as we flow to dope tunes. Who doesn’t like the sound of doing yoga to the likes of Drake, Nicki Minaj and Beyonce? Jonelle’s understanding of different body types, contagious energy and warmth will encourage you to explore your limits and try different postures. She’ll be giving modifications where appropriate.
The class is open to those beginning their yoga journey and advanced practitioners. The only prerequisites are a love of yoga, hip hop & delicious food! Open to all levels.

After practice you will enjoy a seasonal brunch packed with flavour and nutrients to satisfy both body and mind. We’ll be serving one of Toral’s signature frittatas and brunch bowls – her mantra is eat the rainbow so expect summer colours and Mediterranean flavours. All food will be vegetarian and gluten free – do let us know if you are vegan or have other dietary requirements at least 2 days before the event.


Please arrive 9.15am on the rooftop (Bussey Building Block B, 5th floor) for a 9.30-10.45am practice. It will be followed by 11-12 brunch in Studio 2. Please note in the event of bad weather the start time will be adjusted to 11am and the event will take place exclusively in S2. In this case you will be notified via email so please make sure your details on Yogarise account are up to date.

An American living in London, Jonelle dabbled with Ashtanga in 2004 when she was pregnant with her daughter Francesca. After a long break from yoga, in 2011 she began practicing with a purpose. While going through a difficult divorce she found her yoga practice really helped her get her life back. It was liberating, invigorating and healing. In March 2014 she left London behind and went to India to train as a yoga teacher. She trained with The Yoga People run by Dulce Aguilar and Jamie Clarke for her 200 hour foundation course. She’s completed over 800 hours of training and is certified in Ashtanga, Hatha, Hot, Mandala, Qi Gong, Rocket, Vinyasa & Yin yoga. She teaches all over Central and South London. She also leads UK & International yoga retreats. Her classes are set to an urban sound track which is reflective of her roots and her passion for music, creativity and fluidity in life. From growing up in Philadelphia and living in DC and NYC she brings an international vibration and an authenticity into classes which are edgy and filled with a lot laughter. She enjoys teaching all age groups and firmly believes ‘Yoga is for EVERYBODY’. Instagram: @jonelleyoga
