Our Meetup History

To give you a bit of background…6 years ago I had a dream of creating a rawfood community. I held my very first rawpotluck meetup on May[masked], in Highgate Wood and 3 of us showed up. As the membership grew and we started meeting regularly in a Hall in New Barnet…up to 30-40 of us would congregate. We would have a rawfood presenter/educator to talk and demonstrate rawfood and have amazing raw feasts!

3 years ago, in June 2011, I hosted my last rawpotluck meetup at my home. Adam took over, hosting wonder-ful potlucks, during his stay in Highgate; while I made my move, further into Greater London, to Potters Bar and I began developing my dream home on a budget. It is now ready enough to welcome you! 6 years on, from our first 3 members, we have now grown to over 600!

Laughter Yoga Playshop

Are you someone who wants to move on and bring more laughter and joy into your life?

Laughter Yoga is a revolutionary idea – simple and profound and I want to share it with you!

 It’s an laughter routine sweeping the world - a complete wellbeing workout (without the usual yoga postures). Developed by a medical doctor from India Dr. Madan Kataria and it has spread across 72 countries.

What would it be like to laugh for no reason? We’ll laugh with special guided laughter techniques and for no reason without relying on humour, jokes or comedy and one can feel the benefits on the very first session! How does it get any better than that??!!

What if you could laugh yourself healthy? Laughter Yoga is combination of deep breathing exercises from yoga and laughter exercises, which oxygenates our body and brain, makes us feel more healthy and energetic, with physiological and psychological benefits. Clinical research has proved that Laughter lowers the level of stress hormones (epinephrine, cortisol, etc) in the blood.

It is like a cardio workout, bringing more oxygen to the body and brain making us feel more energetic as well as relaxed.

How can we laugh when faced with challenges? Laughter Yoga helps to create a positive mental state to deal with negative situations and negative people. It gives openness and optimism to cope with difficult times. It helps to change your mood within minutes, releasing happy endorphins cells. Are you ready for that? It is like a cardio workout, bringing more oxygen to the body and brain making us feel more energetic as well as relaxed. Only come if you seriously want to laugh & feel good! :oD!

  • Reana

    come and join us on 22nd JohnnyF, I'd love to hear more about your olives ..and sure others would too! :o)

    June 4

  • JohnnyF

    All this sounds fun. I regret though, that I have eaten my entire crop of olives - even though all but two of my supermarketfoodies disliked them. Personally I found them rather tasty, in a rawfoodie type way. I plan to bring back a much bigger quantity this year, and I think I have found a good way of dry-curing them - no salt - no heat - no chemicals - totally raw. When they are ready - I will bring you some. Thanks for keeping me posted. see you all

    This is tedious! It won't let me pay!

    June 3

    • Reana

      Hi Helen, so glad you'd like to come! sorry that you are having problems with the pay system. Technically it should take you to a paypal facility, to pay online. I can't test it myself because i am the organizer. Please send me an email and describe to me what happens when you click rsvp...and i'll see what i can do. Otherwise i'll send u details to do an online bank transfer. Thank you
