This summer, City restaurant Coq d’Argent is teaming up with House of Voga to host monthly Voga classes. Classes will be held on the last Sunday of every month* in Coq d’ Argent’s stunning rooftop garden, and participants are invited to strike a pose surrounded by spectacular views over the City.
Voga is a fusion of yoga and ‘vogeuing’, set to an iconic 80s soundtrack. Taking participants through dynamic dance to dreamy disco, Voga combines the breath-synchronized movement of Yoga with the expressive moves of a dance class, fusing power and strength with attitude and flamboyance, where alignment is key. Voga is for everyone – all ages, all skills, all fitness levels – offering the chance to workout in stylish outfits while bringing nightlife cool into the realm of sweat and lycra.
DJ Deanne Oliver-Evans, also known as Blonde Ambition, will be providing the soundtrack to the classes, and guests are invited to enjoy her special three hour set during the VOGA launch party, taking place on 31st May.
Confirmed event dates (classes take place 11am – 12pm):
- 31st May

Following the classes, which are priced at £15 per person, guests can then enjoy al fresco drinks and lunch at the renowned French restaurant. A Vogue d’Argent healthier cocktail and mocktail menu of refreshing, summery drinks will be available from the rooftop bar, including: The Horseradish Mary (tomato juice, bloody mary mix, vodka, celery); and Asian Pear Sparkle (Asian pear juice, rosemary, ginger juice, lemon juice, honey, nutmeg, gin and soda water); Virgin Apple Mojito (apple juice, mint, fresh lime, topped with soda); and the Lychee Collins (fresh lychees, mint, lime and sugar finished with lemonade). From the kitchen, head chef Damien Rigollet has created an indulgent Sunday menu (12 – 2.45pm, £26pp for two courses, and £29 for three) including dishes such as Grilled smoked salmon, pearl barley, broad beans and peas, and Courgette, tomato and aubergine caviar tart with goat’s cheese tempura.

House of Voga:
Think Vogue. Think Yoga. This is VOGA!
VOGA is set to an iconic 80’s soundtrack taking you through dynamic dance to dreamy disco and combines the breath-synchronized movement of Yoga with the expressive moves of a dance class, fusing power and strength with attitude and flamboyance, where slick alignment is key.
It’s for everyone – all ages, all skills, all fitness levels – offering you the chance to workout in your most stylish outfit while bringing nightlife cool into the realm of sweat and lycra.
Voga is the brainchild of Juliet Murrell, a successful set designer in the fashion, film and design industry. Juliet became a yoga instructor in 2011 to restore her natural energy levels following a period of post-viral chronic fatigue. Identifying a niche for a more expressive, energetic style of yoga, Juliet went on to create VOGA, a stretching and posing routine set to an iconic 80s beat.
Since its inception, it has been warmly received and House of Voga now has ten instructors who are teaching in gyms, hotels, offices, nightclubs and private villas all over the world from London to Ibiza, Paris, Rio and Buenos Aires.
Deanne Oliver-Evans aka Blonde Ambition is a party popper personified, who loves to seamlessly blend an eclectic mixture of disco & house music, creating a uplifting carnival feel to every gig she plays, whilst also enjoying a passion for deeper sounds for those hidden haunts and hotel bars.
