Ethical Yoga – Introductory Course

Tue 31 Mar 2015, 6.15pm

Conway Hall Ethical Society & YogaPod London presents

Ethical Yoga - Introductory Course *SOLD OUT*

We hear a lot these days, that “yoga” is good for us. But why is that and what it is good for? Can yoga be for anyone? Does it need to be ‘spiritual’ to be of benefit? 

Over the four-week course, you will be introduced to fundamentals of the yoga “asana”, how to align the body, counter hyper-mobility, improve posture, core strength and safety techniques to ensure your own practice is muscle and not joint based.

Nicole Frances-Galtié became a qualified yoga teacher in 2006, after completing the Yoga Alliance 200 RYT training at OmStation3 in West London. Her own practice and teaching style is focused on the physiological building blocks of a good practice. Alignment is key and understanding how each individual body responds to yoga training is of paramount importance, you’ll never be made to conform to a perfect pose, but you will learn to build a pose from the ground up, so that it’s aligned, supported, safe and beneficial. 

Introductory Course Topics 

31 Mar - What’s “Core” Strength? 

7 Apr - Structuring of the Asana 

14 Apr - What makes a “dynamic” practice? 

Each session lasts 75 minutes.

Tickets £5 per session

Nic Marks - Happiness at Work: A crazy idea, or realistically achievable?

A self-development workshop in partnership with Psychologies Magazine (www.psychologies.co.uk)

We typically spend more than 100,000 hours at work in our lifetimes. After sleep, it’s our second biggest daily activity. So, while being happy at work might sound weird - the alternative isn’t attractive.

In this workshop - a mixture of interesting research & hands-on exercises, you will learn:

How happiness at work helps us perform better

How to be happier at work

How to create a happier workplace for you and your colleagues

Nic Marks is a recognised expert in happiness and wellbeing research. His TED talk on the happy Planet index and the Five Ways to Wellbeing has been watched over a million times. Recently he founded Happiness Works - a business with a social purpose - to create happier workplaces.

Tickets: £18

London Thinks: How to Topple a Dictator

Wed 8 Apr 2015, 19:30

The Conway Hall Ethical Society presents

London Thinks: How to Topple a Dictator

Tipped for a Nobel Peace Prize and hailed as a world-changer by everyone from the World Economic Forum to Wired magazine, fifteen years ago Srdja Popovic was more interested in punk rock than political protest.

In conversation with Nick Cohen he will explain how he became one of the leaders of Otpor! — the movement which overthrew dictator Slobodan Milosevic — and has since gone on to train the pro-democracy activists behind the Arab Spring, Occupy, and many other movements. Drawing on his new book, Blueprint for Revolution, he will tell the stories of ‘ordinary revolutionaries’ he has been inspired by along the way, many of whom  have created social change by avoiding violence and opting for something far more powerful: a sense of humour. 

Tickets: £15 (£5 concessions and Conway Hall Ethical Society members).
