We know feel good hormones
We believe in hacking happiness naturally by tapping into mood boosters like Dopamine, Oxytocin, Serotonin & Endorphins (= our DOSE), doing things that make us feel good.
We believe in the power of movement in helping us to release these natural mood boosters – why we seek out the best exercise to release endorphins and keep dopamine levels in check with a motivating coffee shot or rewarding post workout brunch.
But we also believe in keeping our oxytocin love hormone and serotonin levels in check by practising self care too with oxytocin and serotonin boosting activities like breathwork, yoga and meditation.
We believe in a balanced lifestyle
We live by a philosophy of healthy hedonism, which is about finding a balance between what’s good for us with what feels good.
Some days we feel more like a HIIT class followed by brunch and bubbles, others a relaxing yoga class followed by a massage. We even wrote a book about it: The ultimate wellness guide for healthy hedonists in search of balance, which we launched in 2016 on Amazon.
Read our ultimate London wellness guide that covers six key areas of London and pulls together the best fitness classes, meditation sessions and post workout self care spots.
