Balancing Life's Yang
Thu 6 April 2017, 18:30 – 20:30 BST
Agora is a Founders' Club based on three key principles that drive start up growth: the power of the right connection, peer to peer mentorship & wellbeing. Access, Knowledge Share, Strength in Number Support, Balance.
The inaugural event in the Agora Wellness series will give you the opportunity to find a little yin, as well as be inspired by the start up story of two feisty, inspirational women. I did my yoga teacher training with Nicola, one of the founders of Yoga Works, and in awe of what she has quietly achieved over the last year. It just goes to show - know it, believe, it will happen. The evening will comprise of a short talk, a yin class & finishing off with a guided meditation given by Niraj Shah, Founder of The Present of Yoga.

Was conceived by two friends who are passionate believers in the mind and body benefits of yoga practice.
One is a Yoga Alliance accredited yoga teacher, both are qualified accountants with over 20 years financial services experience in business management and client service so they are uniquely placed to bring to life a welcoming and inclusive studio with the staying power to make it a stable fixture in the neighbourhood.
We appreciate that many people know and love the benefits of yoga for fitness, meditation or to compliment sports training, but we also believe many people not in regular exercise can be intimated by organised exercise and the unknown,
To people who say ‘I don’t do yoga because I am not flexible’ we say ‘come along and try in a safe, welcoming and affordable studio!’
We aim to create an inclusive and diverse organisation where people of any age and level of experience feel comfortable and welcome and enjoy the overall yoga experience.
In a nutshell this is intended to be a globally relevant resource sharing and connection platform whose goal is to empower yoga leaders and teachers around the world so that they may serve more people, more effectively.
I am joined in this endeavour by co-founders Dorry Golden & Ben Towns, both of whom have rich backgrounds in entrepreneurship and life that complement my own experiences. Each of us has started and run our own businesses, travelled and lived in different parts of the world and are dedicated to healthy bodies and minds.
