Intimate music gigs in Harrogate organised through Sofar Sounds

Sofar Sounds invites you to attend music gigs in everyday spaces – like a living room, rooftop, back garden, pub or retail shop. The venue is transformed into a glamorous sparkling setting but circumvents greedy business conglomerates while promoting fresh talent you’d otherwise never get to hear. Each Sofar Sounds gig is small, and typically features three diverse acts, with no headliner.

Check out their website for how it works and enjoy these exclusive, convenient and amazing venues. Sofar spreads the magic of music and all that it can offer to our health and well-being as a driver of relaxation, inspiration and enjoyment.

Join the action yourself! Get relaxed, get balanced, get entertained.

Dance your way to happiness

 

Is it endorphins, mindfulness, or simple fun? Experts around the world prove that dancing lowers levels of stress hormones and significantly
lowers levels of depression.

Counteracting the onset of depression

Depression affects about 121 million people worldwide. Finding an affordable , non-intrusive and effective treatment is an absolute must for society, not just on an individual level but also on a macro level where we are seeing depression impacting on productivity and as a srpingboard to further illnesses.

What better way to combat these effects than dancing!?

Naturally dancing comes with so many other benefits like improved cardiovascular function, increased body strength, improved balance and posture, enhanced agility and
coordination, as well as boosting your self esteem and confidence.

An antidote to aging – Just like Tai Chi but with more zazzle!

Dancing improves brain function on a variety of levels . Two recent studies in the U.S show how different types of practice allow dancers to achieve peak performance by blending cerebral and cognitive thought processes with muscle memory and proprioception held in the cerebellum. Through regular exercise that incorporates some type of dance at least once a week anyone can maximise their brain function. (source: Salseros LA

Salsa Harrogate
Learning salsa requires you to focus attention and be fully present in the moment, much like the practice of yoga. Salsa is unique in that you must maintain constant awareness and connection with your partner.
This mindful focus can switch off the negative thought patterns associated with stress and depression.In a related study, dancing Salsa reduced cortisol, the hormone associated with stress. Dancing with a partner to music has more positive effects than dancing alone or moving with a partner without music.

Research also suggests that freestyle partner dancing may offer the best benefit
of all. So get your salsa shoes on and step up to the beat.
