First, THANK YOU to the lovely ladies who joined me this past Sunday for my Blissful Backyard Yoga Brunch! The weather was perfect and I had so much fun planning and putting on this "high-vibe" event.
For those of you who couldn't make it, I want to give you a little peak into what a morning of bliss with me looks like. I hope to do more of these in the future - make sure you are signed up for my insider list to be the first to know about the next event!
10:30 AM - Guests began to arrive to my Brooklyn backyard oasis. We sipped on lemon-cucumber infused water and chatted about NYC summers, getaways, and sunshine. Cinnamon the dog joined us and was as excited as we were to be taking this mini-break from the hectic city!
11:00 AM - We moved on the deck and started the meditation and yoga practice. Before we started moving, I offered doTERRA Balance essential oil - one of my favorite blends for promoting a clear, grounded mind. As we warmed our bodies with breath from the inside, the sun rising overhead started to warm us from the outside. We flowed through Moon Salutations and a number of other cooling postures to promote a state of relaxation and bliss.
12:00 PM - By the time we got to savasana, the sun was high in the sky and we were happy to make our way back inside to the air conditioning, and to FOOD! We filled our bellies with a nourishing, delicious vegetarian meal:
- Green Dream Smoothie - A nutty, sweet smoothie that's packed with nutrients thanks to the ALOHA plant-based protein powder. Recipe will be coming to the blog later this week!
- Seasonal Berries and Sugar Plums with Coconut Whipped Creme
1:00PM We could have stayed for hours talking (really! we all were having such a good time together!), but the rest of Sunday awaited. Each guest left light-hearted and energized, and with a bag of my favorite bliss-inducing goodies including doTERRA essential oils, ALOHA protein and greens products, and relaxing teas.
This morning was so, so special. I love yoga, delicious healthy food, and inspiring conversation and this event contained all of the above and more. THANK YOU again to everyone who made this possible by participating and showing your support!
If you are in NYC and looking for a little bit of bliss in the big city, join me this Wednesday at Athleta Flatiron - we'll chat about how to use essential oils and yoga to relax and de-stress, flow through my signature yoga practice, and mingle afterwards with delicious snacks from ALOHA. Get all the details here!
As promised, I'll be back later this week with the recipe for my Green Dream Smoothie!
