In 2018, Yoga & Mindfulness hit the mainstream in a big way; according to surveys around 14% of the population now practise either Yoga or Meditation. Is this a sign of the times?

Google CEO Eric Schmidt said they are creating more information in 2 days than was created from the dawn of civilisation. This mind boggling number is just part of it - we are now collectively consuming and processing unprecedented amounts of information daily. What effect is this having on our nervous system and memory? What role does mindfulness have to play in an 'always on' world?

Yoga specifically has experienced a huge boom in popularity as a wellbeing, personal development practise in the 21st century. But is it now an alien concept compared to its traditional roots? And how might it have evolved in another 100 years?

Join our 3 leading Wellbeing experts for an insightful evening of talks & questions around the origins of Yoga & Mindfulness, the current state of play, the importance of being present in a digital world, and where things go from here.

Venue: International Students House, Marylebone

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm

Earlybird Tickets: £12

Standard Tickets: £15

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
