Nourishing your Soul in London
With the summer in full swing and the city bustling and back to life its even more important to look after your inner peace. I’ve put together a little list of some wellness events and hidden gems all over London to take care of your soul. Whether its a pamper day you need, some nourishing food, somewhere too move your body or something a little more woo-woo I’ve got you covered!
To start off let’s look at a few easy ways to bring some calm into your life that won’t take up too much of your time. Firstly it’s important to remember that there is an important link between mental and physical health. If you can find the time for fitness it’s a great start is to join a run club . Even once a week it’s known to improve sleep and enhance mood just allocating yourself time to move your body. Most clubs have a variety of paces from a leisurely stroll around the park to a speedy road run. A quick google search of 'running clubs near me’ will be sure to locate a community of likeminded people nearby, and from my own experience you’ll end up with some new friends too.
Now to dive into some events close to my heart that may be a little more on the woo-woo scale. Breathwork, sound healing and reiki. Spread all over London and the UK you can find some amazing upcoming events which cater to this side of the wellness world. A personal favourite of mine is the shamonic sound bath at omega three. Nestled right by Victoria park in east London the wonderful healers using allow you to delve into the subconscious and conscious mind using a variety of ancient modalities to give you a experience both magical and transformative.
If you have a little more time and you are looking for a full immersive wellness experience there are also some expansive retreats on the horizon. In just over a couple of weeks the Jamyang Buddhist centre will open its doors for a one day heart of happiness retreat. Great for anyone wanting to open their heart and deepen their spiritual practises. With guided meditations, restorative yoga and some beautiful workshops this is one not to miss. If you can wait till October there is a super special retreat returning to the steel yard in London. On October 16th the Rise and Shine inner city retreat is bringing the magic of their country retreats to the city with a full day of magic, sober partying, live music and epic food and drinks. This event is always packed full of inspiring people from the conscious community making a big impact on peoples mental and physical health.
Lastly how could I leave out food. If you are Vegan or a fan of delicious food in general Vegan nights is back as of September 1st. Serving up some of the finest vegan food and letting you dance the night away with an awesome selection of DJ’s playing some of the very best in reggae, roots, basement, grime, house and party classics. This event is hosted at the Truman Brewery and even better, you can bring your pets!
I hope this gives you a little inspiration to nourish you're London life with good vibes and good times!
