If there can ever be such a thing as a long-awaited yoga event (true yogis are both patient and not bothered about new stuff), then this Thursday's opening of the Soho Triyoga is it. For five years Triyoga has been synonymous with the Primrose Hill set - it's where the beautiful people do yoga and, for those easily intimidated, this made it a far from relaxing experience, despite having some of the best teachers in town. Hence the joy at the news of the Soho opening. Set in a beautiful loft space just off Carnaby Street, it's bound to become where the damned do yoga -and the damned are always much more fun to hang out with than the beautiful. Call 020-7483 3344 (triyoga.co.uk) for further details.
Spas in your eyes
It's cold, it's dark and the only thing to look forward to is the January sales. Imagine, instead, you are on a tropical island having a relaxing facial, sipping fresh mango juice, the sea lapping at your feet. Are you there yet? No, me neither ... ah well. Perhaps a trip to the Spa Show will get the creative juices going. The UK's first ever consumer Spa Show (the rest are all for boring industry types) takes place at London Olympia on November 19-20. The idea is that, instead of having to rely on cheesy brochures or the internet, and risk being disappointed on arrival, the spas come to you. Sponsored by Condé Nast Traveller, the emphasis is on luxury - such as the beautiful Six Senses spas (Maldives, Thailand, Vietnam and plenty more). So if you are lacking in will power, leave the plastic at home. Call 0870 060 6090 (spashow.co.uk), for details. Advance booking, £10; door price, £15.
The latest buzz
Good vibrations are apparently the latest tool in celebrity weight loss. The makers of Vibrogym claim this jumped-up trampoline is already a favourite of Clint Eastwood, Sophie Anderton and, er, Simon Cowell. All exercise done on the vibrating 'plate' is said to work the body three times harder than a standard floor, while just three 12-minute sessions promise to create more lean tissue and burn more calories than three and a half hours of conventional training, thereby giving 20% better results in 70% less time and with no extra effort. Or perhaps that's just 20% more talk and 70% less trousers? To book a consultation, call The Fitness Lounge on 020-7794 6001 (or visit bettervibrations.com).
