Kensington Mums enjoyed some Yoga in beautiful Hyde Park. We were so lucky with the weather, the sun was shining and we had a great instructor Francesca, from Lumi Power Yoga and all the Mums were geared to burn calories and tone up those muscles. Stay tuned for pictures in our Gallery.


During the half term holidays, Kensington Mums was invited to the Sealife London Aquarium for some shark attack, penguins and spotted loads of amazing fish, including Nemo!
