Re:Solutions Festival at Juju’s Bar & Stage until end of January 2018

Bigger and better than the first year, Re:Solutions festival promises a stellar 2018 programme with yoga, dance and fitness classes from the likes of Yogahood, Fat Buddha Yoga and Disco Barre as well many others who will inspire, guide and lend life wisdom. ☮️ 🙏

From lunchtime yoga to swing and cuban dance classes with uplifting live music, the choice is plentiful. Working in collaboration with Urban Temple, this year’s event also sees offerings in unusual and innovative realms, such as Chroma light yoga with intense coloured light settings, Disco Barre and Pilates as well as dynamic Afrofusion, Soca and movement workshops lined up to deliver an all-embracing proposition.

Classes are complemented with speakers and wellness coaches including one of the most successful coaches in the UK, Hari Kalymnios, the author of the ground-breaking and thought-jarring book – ‘The Thought Gym’.

To ensure revellers are nourished from the inside out, the food offering has one mission – to fuel the mindful masses with vital minerals and conscious ingredients, keeping them energised all month long. With the Juju Bean Cafe at the helm, whatever the taste preference and whether the goal is to detox or retox, food will be fresh, tasty, and filled with plenty of goodness. Collaborators include Moju juices, Karma Cola and the vegan, refined-sugar and gluten free Cupcakes and Shhht for guilt-free indulgence.

In addition, there will be mindfulness and meditation workshops and gong baths, headlined by the brilliant Nick Stolerman and Siri Sadhana Kaur. What’s more, the festival’s music offering will work in synergy with the festival goers’ mood with bands and performers all coming together to deliver an awesome atmosphere. From Latino dance tunes to blissfully laid back melodies, to live bands and yoga classes led by Ministry Of Sound DJ’s, the roster of musical talent is set to be utterly impressive.

Proper hangover advice

Although there are no real cures for hangovers, there are ways to ease the symptoms.

Treatment involves rehydrating the body so it can deal with the painful symptoms (though the best time to rehydrate is before going to sleep).

Over-the-counter painkillers can help with headaches and muscle cramps. Paracetamol-based remedies are usually preferable, as aspirin may further irritate the stomach and increase nausea and sickness.

Sugary foods may help you feel less trembly. In some cases, an antacid may be needed to settle your stomach first.

Bouillon soup, a thin vegetable-based broth, is a good source of vitamins and minerals, which can top-up depleted resources. Its main advantage is that it’s easy for a fragile stomach to digest.

You can replace lost fluids by drinking bland liquids that are easy on the digestive system, such as water, soda water and isotonic drinks (available in most shops).

“Hair of the dog” (drinking more alcohol) does not help. Drinking in the morning is a risky habit, and you may simply be delaying the appearance of symptoms until the alcohol wears off again.

If you’ve had a heavy drinking session, hangover or not, doctors advise that you wait 48 hours before drinking any more alcohol, in order to give your body tissues time to recover. Sometimes, of course, a hangover makes that advice easier to follow.

In this busy time when we interface with kindles, ipads, iphones, blackberries, computers at work
we are overwhelmed with tech and sometimes forget to log ourselves out.

Syncself is part of the Intransit Festival for the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea will be shown
exclusively at the Portobello Pop Up Cinema.

SYNCSELF explores the concept that in this age of technological dependency, have
we neglected the most powerful computer system at our disposal? The Self!

We always prioritize downloading the latest update on our iphone or computer but
do we ever take the time to Sync our Selfs. Freerunners have to constantly
update their belief system or personal operating software in order to overcome
the most recent obstacle.
