London’s top wellness workshops

We all know the wellness industry is booming, that’s nothing new. It’s a really exciting time to be part of such a fast paced industry and the trends for 2017 are looking pretty damn hot!

Of late we’ve seen a real shift in wellness ‘feeling good is the new looking good’. We’re all waking up to the fact that this is an inside out job. What do we mean? Well, If you want to look good you gotta do a little digging and clearing out on the inside to make the outside glow. For real.

It’s now totally the norm to head to Shoreditch House for a meditation session followed by brunch, or to finish your Sunday with a delicious sound healing session. With the world speeding up, content set to double in 2017, life isn’t showing any signs of slowing down and certainly not in cities! Self care is no longer really a luxury in this modern time. We all need a little summin’ summin’ to help us slow down, get present and relax.

To those of you who are workshop newbies, think self development slash self love with a sprinkling of spirituality on top. And before you freak, It’s really not as ‘woo woo’ as you imagine and even if it is a little, rest assured you’re bucking the trend and joining the wellbeing pioneers who are not only leading the way with this work, they have fun in the process too – imagine that!

Finally as a side note, New York and LA are usually at least a couple of years ahead in wellbeing trends, having already embraced the inside/out journey and turning it into ‘the thing’ to do with your mates – we couldn’t agree more. Welcome to the next frontier in wellbeing – A mind body and soul workout! Are you ready to dive in?

We’ve put together our top 5 favourite workshops for you all to try, there’s a little something in there for everyone. Disclaimer alert – all these workshops are entry level so if you’re thinking ‘I’ve never meditated before’ don’t let that stop you. Chances are most people won’t have. Enjoy!

The Breath Guru – Alan Dolan

This is warrior work – You can literally shift how you feel one breath at a time. Conscious breathing is a powerful and safe way to infuse the body with oxygen and energy, recharging our own (often depleted) systems to work to their healing capacity.

Humans have been aware of the healing power of their breath for millennia. Through the centuries we’ve developed a vast array of breathing practices, all designed to bring about physical and emotional wellbeing and connect with our deeper selves. in today’s society, we often neglect our bodies’ built-in capabilities. The fact is, most of us live in ‘standby mode’ most of the time. The most powerful mechanism is literally right beneath our noses waiting to be explored, yet we rarely give it more than a passing thought until now!
