Self Care Sunday is a monthly wellbeing event curated to lift the soul, calm the mind and warm the heart.
Guided and invigorated through yoga, meditation, ecstatic dance, mindfulness and sound healing our guests will be invited to let go of stress, move with purpose and embrace the positive energy of our emerging future.
In partnership with MoreMind at MoreYoga and Fierce Calm, these events will bring people together as a community and hold a nurturing and playful space to indulge in open hearted self-care.
If there is one thing we have learnt in the last 12 months it’s that you can’t give from an empty cup, and if we want throw some big moves on the dance floor of life this year we need to allow ourselves time to heal and grow!
This is a fundraising event in support of UK mental health charity Mind and Flip Your Dog For Mental Health community wellbeing projects.

At MoreYoga we believe in the importance of holistic well-being and that taking care of your mental and emotional health is just as important as looking after your physical health.
MoreMind is a dedicated space curated by our Head of Vibes, Holistic Well-being Coach & Yoga Teacher, Liz Joy Oakley and our resident Psychologist and Yoga teacher, Dr Stephanie Minchin, where our community can access information, help and support.
The MoreMind initiative is to promote positive mental health and well-being by opening up the discussion and to bring people together through events, talks, workshops, content and more.
Our goal is to help support our community through our platforms online & offline and tackle the taboo that still exists around mental health together.
