About the Event
WE ARE BACK with a HUGE PROGRAM!! An in-person afternoon of sisterhood & healing! We have two special guests, The Voice finalist & BBC ONE Judge Ali Kose will be performing a mini acoustic set & one of the best Yoga teachers in London, Joely will be teaching a Yoga and Guided Movement class. Suitable for every body. Slow down, breathe deeply and re-connect with your sense of self through gentle yoga poses, Breathwork, visualization and mobility. You do not need to be an experienced Yogi to attend, this class is perfect for everyone. Find what feels good and leave feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and relaxed.
If you are tired of feeling like the odd one out, like you do not have community of your own and feeling heard but constantly misunderstood, this event is for you!!! You find yourself on the intersection of two heritages and not being accepted by either? This is for you. If you want to unpack some of your trauma and/or experiences in a safe space away from social media, this is for you. In the 2.5 years we have run these events, we can confidently say, everyone you meet at this event WILL have something in common with you and you'll feel a weight lifted off of your shoulder as you are finally able to share without the fear of being judged but instead met with understanding and often an instant connecting as you have been through similar things. If you are a parent of mixed children or have a partner who is mixed we would highly recommend attending too! We will be exploring all things mixed identity and how to navigate this ever-changing in-betweenship we find ourselves in. If you need a pick-me-up, a confidence boost, want to make new friends or simply listen to people who GET YOU, this space is FOR YOU!!!! To make this experience even more comfortable for you, we will also be providing complimentary food & drinks (packaged to ensure safety).
What to expect: - A LIVE YOGA CLASS w/ a professional yoga teacher Joely - Networking & Core discussions around being mixed (Relationships, Colorism, The Corporate World, Family Matters, Search for Identity, Raising Mixed Kids & more) - A LIVE MUSIC PERFORMANCE by Ali Kose - Book signing of the books 'But where are you really from" & 'Affirmations for Mixed Girls' - Guided Movement / Dance Class to ease muscle tension & relieve stress - Guided Meditation & Confidence Affirmations with our founder - Live Q&A PLEASE NOTE EVENT STARTING TIME BELOW: 2.30pm GMT (London) - 5. 30pm GMT We are looking into also having a live stream on the day for those of you who can't make it to London.
