12.00 - Louise Wallis - Pilates Flow Masterclass (Mind Body Zone)

Want to feel stretched, strengthened, mobilised and energized? This class is for you. Suitable for all levels (including beginners), the session will guide you through a series of flowing mat-based exercises, accompanied by funky, uplifting music.

"Pilates is my passion" says Louise, "As a teacher, I aim to make my classes as enjoyable as possible. When we experience pleasure it triggers the release of highly beneficial, life enriching hormones and chemicals in the brain and body. Many have regenerative, health-promoting and mood enhancing effects that are vital for maintaining a happy heart, a strong, healthy body, and a balanced, peaceful mind".

5.00 - Urgent Help Needed: Animal Welfare Party EU Election Campaign - Supporters Gathering

On 22nd May 2014, along with their counterparts in other European countries, the UK's Animal Welfare Party will attempt to make history by returning a dedicated representative for animals to the EU Parliament for the first time ever.

AWP believes this is a pivotal moment in the history of mankind, as important as any in the history of human or women's rights.

AWP estimate they will need just 140,000 votes from Londoners in order to win a seat in the constituency of London. That's around one third of the vegetarian members of the London electorate. But to date, the media has largely ignored their campaign and many people still aren't aware of them. But, wherever you live, you could be their absolutely vital link to those people that aren't and you could play a crucial role in their success on May 22nd.

Now, with the EU Parliament election just weeks away, if you support their aims and would like to see them succeed on 22nd May, please make time to come to this gathering. Find out what you can do to help spread the word and contribute to their final push for victory!
