Learn all about how to live happily at Saturday’s talk “The Little Book of Lykke” at the mini theatre room of TK Park on the eighth floor of CentralWorld.



Written by Meik Wiking, chief executive of The Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen and one of the world’s leading experts in happiness, the book offers inspiration and suggestions for achieving greater happiness, by practising Lykke – pursuing and finding the good that exists in the world around us every day.

The talk is hosted by moderator Salaithip Jaruphum, together with Dr Decharut Sukkumnoed, Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics, Kasetsart University, Sivaphak Jienwanalee, an editor of a day magazine, and Lalita Polpala, translator of the book.

Yoga in the air

Lifestyles on 26 at Centara Grand at CentralWorld offers a variety of fun fitness classes designed to suit all levels of ability. One of its most popular is the weekly “Yoga Fly” class that lets you stretch it all out while dangling from the ceiling using specialist equipment and techniques.

The yoga classes, held every Monday from 89pm, offer a whole new take on the activity. As you are lifted off the floor, less pressure is exerted on your limbs, allowing you to stretch deeper and for longer. The price is Bt400 per hour for both members and non-members. 

Book your stretch at (02) 100 6299.
