Last Wednesday, after experiencing a bit of a train-travel nightmare on my way to London, my day only got better. After a lovely catch up with my friend Tash in Pret A Manger, discussing all things blogging, health and nutrition related, I headed to Hyde Park for an uplifting evening with lululemon. I once wrote one of my university assignments on lululemon, because I love their grassroots, community approach to marketing, and this stunning event was no exception!
Every year the Serpentine Gallery in Hyde Park commissions a temporary summer pavilion by an architect. This year's stunning serpentine pavilion by Chilean architect Smiljan Radix made the perfect location for a summer sunset yoga practise. More than 300 yogis turned up for a session with Celest Pereira, who, by the way, is the most incredible yoga instructor, as I think anyone who has ever experienced a practise with her and her contagiously bubbly personality will agree. You can read my interview with her here.
The session began with Celest lighting a candle to remember BKS Iyengar, the man who brought yoga to the West, who sadly passed away earlier that day aged 95. An hour's practise followed to the beautiful music of a live harpist, and the evening ended with Bellinis (my favourite! lululemon how did you know...) being served in the pavilion while we sang and danced along with a band, and enjoyed the wonderful company.
Thanks to lululemon for another fantastic event!
