Hello Ladies & Gents,
I hope you are as ready as me to jump into the week and own Monday like a boss. I know I am, perhaps in part due to the relaxing weekend I just had.
“Blogging of which”, I must ask how do you relax after a highly productive and extremely busy week?
- Indulge in wine and old Hollywood movies
- Book yourself a SPA date, massage and manicure included
- Opt for an impromptu night out in your city’s hottest spots
- All of the above (why not)
Whatever the option might be, it pays off to disconnect from the excessive noise and constant distractions we are subjected to. i.e.: Twitter, Instagram. And I decided to do just that this past weekend.
Perfect timing, as the biggest yoga gathering in Quebec took place on Saturday July 28th, with 2100 people in attendance all dressed in white and practicing yoga together at the White Yoga Session presented by Lolë.
“What an incredible journey! Sharing a sense of calm and serenity with so many people is an indescribable feeling.” said Lyne St-Rock, Lolë ambassador invited to lead this expansive Yoga session that left me relaxed and ready to sign up for more classes.
I talked to Lyne St-Roch afterwards and she was just as inspiring. In her own words, yoga taught her to “love herself as she is.” She added that transitioning from teaching fitness to yoga, following a determining trip to Orlando was one of her best and most fulfilling life decisions, and I am pretty sure the 2100 people in attendance are glad she did.
The tranquility surrounding the Sun Life Financial Esplanade in the Olympic Park was palpable. Time felt almost suspended, until of course I had to resume to tweeting and instagraming the event – what can I say, some things can’t be changed
Social media madness aside, this outdoor yoga session left me with a calm mind and a relaxed body.
Plus few treats to keep the yoga spirit alive, courtesy of Lolë’s partners and sponsors.
What’s in the bag: Yoga sessions at Lyne St-Roch studios, SPA date at Montreal Bains Scandinaves, vegan and raw treats from Crudessence (which I have yet to try), a Magazine subscription (there’s always room for more) and other goodies. This lady is spoiled and happy.
Congratulations to Lolë and NATA PR for orchestrating such an impressive and successful event, and thank you for having me. Now, can we do this every month? You know you want to.
Here’s to a great week everyone!
