There’s a new place to get some feel-good vibes in Peterborough.
The Soul Happy non-profit wellbeing centre has set up a pop-up shop in Queensgate’s Westgate Arcade offering a range of therapies designed to help you take control of your life, build resilience, and reduce stress, anxiety or lack of motivation.
The Westgate Arcade pop-up shop will be Soul Happy’s second home, which is designed to help people to honour their health and wellbeing while going about their busy lifestyle. Soul Happy’s services are wide-ranging and also include aromatherapy massage, counselling, couples’ yoga, trauma recovery, reflexology, Kinesiology, and nutrition. It also offers workshops including rock painting, hypnotherapy, mindfulness, and laughter sessions.
They already have a centre in Cowgate and run a packed calendar of events.
Regular weekly events include yoga every Thursday (12.30pm-1.15pm and 1.30pm-2.15pm, £6) and ‘Conscious Conversations’ every Friday (1pm-1.30pm, free but donations welcome). On Thursday afternoons, Soul Happy will receive a delivery of fresh vegetables from local regenerative farm, Lawson Garden Market, ready for customers to collect too.
Other workshops and socials also take place weekly to help reinvigorate your body and mind such as Kirtan Chanting, Meditation and Plant Medicine Workshops, and a Vegan Food Share and Social (Wednesday February 20, 7pm-9pm), to name but a few. View the full calendar of events at www.soulhappy.org.uk and don’t forget to pre-book.
There will also be shorter drop-in sessions that don’t need to be pre-booked. Just turn up to Westgate Arcade for cacao ceremonies, crystal healing, fitness blasts, Indian head massage and Reiki – timings, dates and details can be found on the website and social media.
Kim Coley, Managing Director at Soul Happy, said: “Our vision is to work towards sustainable wellbeing, helping people be the best version of themselves, whilst creating a movement within our city. We believe that having this additional venue will really help us to ‘be more of the change’ that we want to see in the world and help others to do more of what makes their soul happy too.”
You can also pop in any time to buy ethical supplies, goodies and gifts, including art, cacao products, crystals, crystal jewellery, handmade bags, essential oils, salt lamps, Hemp products, CBD oil and more. The shop prides itself on striving towards more conscious consumerism, including zero waste, handmade, toxic free, plant based and ethical products where possible.
Queensgate’s Centre Director Mark Broadhead said: “We wish Soul Happy the very best with the launch and we are delighted to have them in Westgate Arcade. In 2019, people are more conscious than ever of their wellbeing, so Soul Happy’s arrival is perfect timing.”
Soul Happy can also come into workplaces to offer its services outside of its new, second home.
