Fuckup Nights York
📅 Tuesday 21 May 2019
Micklegate Social
Failure without Filters - Fuckup Nights are now in York.

Part of a global movement of events that share stories of failure, Fuckup nights see 4 brave entrepreneurs get up in front of a room full of strangers to explain how their own business or project went off the rails, what they learnt and what they'd do differently if they had their time over. Businesses that crash and burn, partnership deals that go sour, products that must be recalled… we hear them all.

We all make mistakes, so come along and learn from others and use your new found knowledge to help guide your own endeavours.

Hear fascinating stories and mingle with the crowd. If you're feeling brave grab the mic yourself during the quickfire ‘open mic’ slots, where members of the audience can volunteer their own one-minute Fuckup stories.

21st May 7-9pm Micklegate Social
£6 (includes welcome drink)
To book: fuckupnights.com/york
Sweat It Out
📅 Sunday 26 May 2019
Venue: Clements Hall
During the class, you will be guided through a Wave of your own dancing energy, along with music from all over the world. Every Wave starts off with smooth FLOWING movements, followed by STACCATO fiery expressions. We learn to shake it all off in CHAOS and free ourselves into lighter LYRICAL movements. We finish our dancing Wave with STILLNESS, allowing our attention to rest in the present moment.

This will be a fully taught 5Rhythms class, led by certified 5Rhythms teacher Eliza Bouwens.

We will start our dance on a heated floor in our gorgeous space at Clements Hall. More
