We are so excited to be giving away 3 pairs of weekend tickets to Soul Circus Yoga & Wellness Festival taking place in Gloucester on 18th-20th August. The tickets are worth £400 per pair and include access to all workshops, yoga, classes and entertainment. We were lucky enough to experience the first ever Soul Circus festival in 2016 which consisted of so many high points that we had to share news of the second festival with you.

January starts with a bang but soon becomes a drag. And then February – a month of nothingness. Not the new year, and not yet close enough to March to warrant walks in the brighter air with a lighter heart. Before you know it, in walks Spring with it’s progressively longer days, medley of bird songs and signs of renewal.
Sitting at a desk all day can wreak havoc on the body. The human skeleton, with its 206 bones, and 112 joints that facilitate movement of this structure, is literally designed to move. However finding the time, and perhaps more crucially, the energy to move more can be difficult. Start off slowly, aiming to add 10-15 minutes of extra movement into your day, throughout the week and weekend, and you may find that your energy levels start to improve. Increase the duration of your activity as you start to feel the benefit of using your body how it’s been designed to be used!!
A Mindful Movement
We live in a busy world & engaging in day-to-day life can be chaotic, stressful and exhausting. Especially if you experience hearing loss or tinnitus.
JUST BREATHE is the first modern mindfulness meditation community in the heart of the UK where people come together to create an oasis of space amidst the London hustle, and it’s about time.
Isn’t it time you stepped out of your comfort zone?
Join Michael James Wong as we step into the unknown for a once in a lifetime experience both on and off the mat… this is NOT your typical beach yoga retreat!
What to expect
What to expect
Leave your expectations at home and join fellow yogis from around the world as we explore the power of Mother Nature, and the power within us all, as we embark on an adventure that’s both breath-making and breath-taking. Throughout the week we’ll explore the highs and the lows, the fast and the slow of the practice, the beautiful winter elements and ourselves.
A mindful movement
Just Breathe | London is the first modern meditation community in the heart of the UK.
A place where people of like mind come together to breathe.
Join us in supporting Just Breathe | London’s monthly events where mindfulness is brought to the masses creating a new kind of community coming together to sit and share in a group meditation. Each event is enjoyed with live music at the Quiet Concert following each Meditation session.
Meditation and focussed breathing have been proven by a number of studies to both physically and psychologically improve brain health, particularly for those experiencing stress and suffering with pain, depression, anxiety or addiction. At Cubex, it is used to help reduce the negative psychological and cognitive effects of tinnitus , hearing loss and other hearing conditions.

Do you ever feel mentally exhausted, unable to think clearly or productively, be it at the start, during or at the end of the day?
Leaving aside the torrent of politics recently thrown our way, our brains take as much of a battering as our bodies do – there is the work environment and the working day, which now stretches far longer than in times past; then there is the ‘non-work’ environment, be that social or personal responsibilities that further demand planning, consideration and decisions; and on top of both of these aspects of our lives, there is the constant and unending sensory bombardment from marketing, advertisements and social media – all of it vying for your attention, grappling to make you engage, consume, digest.
How, then, to keep our brains refreshed and focussed? Read on for three simple changes you could make to leave you feeling that little bit more energised and empowered.
