No matter where you live and work in London, it’s easy for life in the city to occasionally feel a little overwhelming. The solution? Make some time for moments of calm.

But what with the capital’s bright lights, never-ending noise and frantic energy, that’s easier said than done. So to help, Stylist partnered up with Arizona by Proenza Schouler to get some expert tips on how you can disconnect from urban life.

Those relaxation gurus include illustrator Manjit Thapp and Jasmine Hemsley, one of the women behind Sound Sebastien, a series of immersive sensory workshops where you listen to the soothing sounds of crystal singing bowls being played.

Meanwhile, Sanchia Legister and Holiday Phillips, the duo behind yoga and meditation class Gyal Flex, have been described as the faces of urban wellness. If anyone knows how to escape urban life, it’s them.
