Release everything and step into a powerful day of mind altering, body-stoking sweat, endorphins, knowledge and connection. Set your intention and sign up for sweat sessions like you’ve never experienced before, nicely balanced with insight, meditation and nourishment to get you through the day. Mindfully designed by lululemon London, featuring a lively crew of local sweatxperts in yoga, boxing, pilates, spin, barre, bootcamp, dance, rowing and crossfit, we’ll be fired up to see you sweating your whatever off. 🙏

Psycle London has created two new classes, and will be offering exclusive previews at Sweatlife:

Psycle Barre: This new signature barre method that has been designed by a team of experts to build strength, flexibility, agility, speed, balance and mental focus – without losing the fun. The choreography is based on the rhythm of energising playlists and it takes you through all the planes of movement to get deep into the belly of each major muscle group.

Psycle HIIT: has been designed to deliver a powerful, high intensity interval workout that will leave every part of your body worked. Using a mixture of TRX, kettle-bells, dumbbells and bodyweight exercises, the classes are challenging, highly effective, and push your limits. This class is designed to give amazing metabolic benefits – be prepared to sweat!

Muaythai inspired HIIT with Jamie Ray, star Trainer from Another Space: Get yourself ready to combine high intensity training with traditional Muaythai striking. Be prepared to not only sweat but overcome physical and mental barriers in this new and refreshing hybrid martial art discipline. A new concept which will leave you standing fighting strong.

Yoga for the Brain with Heather Mason: The most pervasive research finding in yoga trials is that it reduces stress and lifts mood.  An increasing body of evidence finds that yoga may lead to these changes because it is able to change brain chemistry, functioning and anatomy.  In this talk we will review cutting-edge research which elucidates how yoga gives rise to brain change.  We will also look at specific practices that specifically help to promote these positive changes in individuals suffering from mental health issues.

Primal Flow with Sam Burrows: Primal flow improves strength, flexibility and balance by drawing on fast paced dynamic movements and animal locomotion. Incorporating crawls, jumps, lunges, squats, inversions and static holds these sessions will have you moving like a beast.

Yoga with Live Harp Music: Classical music has been scientifically proven to induce feelings of relaxation and wellbeing, and there is no better instrument than a harp to do just this. Join acclaimed yogi Katy Bateman as she eases you through a guided yoga practice, complete with the soothing sounds of a classically trained harpist. This unique class will be live-streamed on Facebook too, meaning even those that can’t be present on the day can enjoy the experience.

Boxing Fundamentals with Chris Baugh: Come join lululemon Ambassador and former pro boxer Chris Baugh as he brings his boxing expertise to the fitness ring. Get sweaty and learn the fundamentals of the sweet science at the Sweatlife festival!

45 Workouts in 45 with Ally Gray: Come join Ambassador Ally Grey as he takes you through 45 workouts in 45 minutes in a circuit that you won’t forget. This engaging class will leave you feeling energised… but also with a slight burn.

Metabolic with Lawrence Hannah: Join Lawrence for a HIIT and strength training class: Metabolic. Using only the body weight we will work through a range of intensity levels and tempo to torch fat while adding strength to promote lean definition in the muscles. Big group, big energy, hard work, good feeling.

How to Train Your Posterior Chain with On Your Marks: Alex Marks, Head Personal Trainer of OYM, will take you through his signature glute activation and core class. Go from having a sleepy bum to an active ass and tight abs, in 40 short minutes. On Your Marks is an initiative with the aim of encouraging novices into sport, both to achieve their own personal challenges and to raise awareness of meningitis.

The above will be joining the likes of Xtend Barre, Barry’s Bootcamp, Breathe Studios, Frame, Heartcore, Kobox, My Pilates, Psycle, UN1T, Lift the Movement, Rowingwod, Perpetua Fitness and The Foundry. Not to mention, a whole host of inspirational speakers and yoga teachers – and the hugely popular lululemon Om the Move Meditation Bus.

The American Dream: Pop to the Present @ British Museum / until 18th June 2017

Trace the creative momentum of a superpower in this major new exhibition.

The past six decades have been among the most dynamic and turbulent in US history, from JFK’s assassination, Apollo 11 and Vietnam to the AIDS crisis, racism and gender politics. Responding to the changing times, American artists produced prints unprecedented in their scale and ambition.

Starting with the explosion of pop art in the 1960s, the exhibition includes works by the most celebrated American artists. From Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg to Ed Ruscha, Kara Walker and Julie Mehretu – all boldly experimented with printmaking. Experience this extraordinary history through their eyes.

Taking inspiration from the world around them – billboard advertising, global politics, Hollywood and household objects – American artists created highly original prints to rival their paintings and sculptures. Printmaking brought their work to a much wider and more diverse audience.

The sheer inventiveness and technical ingenuity of their prints reflects America’s power and influence during this period. Many of these works also address the deep divisions in society that continue to resonate with us today – there are as many American dreams as there are Americans.

This exhibition presents the Museum’s outstanding collection of modern and contemporary American prints for the first time. These will be shown with important works from museums and private collections around the world.

Join thousands of fans and lure Pokémon.

Make sure your phone is fully charged and wear suncream!

Travel between the real world and the virtual world of Pokémon with Pokémon GO for iPhone and Android devices. With Pokémon GO, you’ll discover Pokémon in a whole new world—your own! Pokémon GO is built on Niantic’s Real World Gaming Platform and will use real locations to encourage players to search far and wide in the real world to discover Pokémon. Pokémon GO allows you to find and catch more than a hundred species of Pokémon as you explore your surroundings.

The Pokémon video game series has used real-world locations such as the Hokkaido and Kanto regions of Japan, New York, and Paris as inspiration for the fantasy settings in which its games take place. In Pokémon GO, the real world will be the setting!

Get on your feet and step outside to find and catch wild Pokémon. Explore cities and towns around where you live and even around the globe to capture as many Pokémon as you can. As you move around, your smartphone will vibrate to let you know you’re near a Pokémon. Once you’ve encountered a Pokémon, take aim on your smartphone’s touch screen and throw a Poké Ball to catch it. Be careful when you try to catch it, or it might run away! Also look for PokéStops located at interesting places, such as public art installations, historical markers, and monuments, where you can collect more Poké Balls and other items.

RSVP on Facebook.
