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.

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.

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.

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.

Interactive sound installation by Studio PSK. Originally commissioned by the Fashion Space Gallery, London College of Fashion and developed in collaboration with musician Reeps One, the installation is inspired by the inherent joy of using playgrounds as a child.

Taking the archetypal elements of a playground: swings, slides, climbing frame and combining them with advanced musical engineering, the end result is a landscape of playground activities transformed into a giant musical instrument.

The installation includes a timber framework, built recreating iconic playground pieces to an adult scale. Using conductive paint, tape and yarn to create MIDI triggers out of steps, slides and swings the structure will spring to life & evoke the joy of the playground under the archways of House of Vans London.

Throughout the run, this iteration will be accompanied by an array live performances where musicians will explore the structure as an instrument through experimentation and rehearsals in front of a live audience.

After successful shows at Art Basel Miami & Salone del Mobile – Fashion Space Gallery ,Studio PSK and Reeps One are…
