Visited the girls in the showroom in between classes and Kat was there with her wonderful oils. It’s so inspiring seeing her fulfilling her dreams.

Hi my dears! Despite what has been going on back home life goes on and I had a day of exciting stuff booked in yesterday. I am determined to move on with life and live, not letting hate stop me. Even though it’s what’s been on mind pretty much constantly since Friday.

I started my day off with a session at the gym. I was planning on going to Stella’s but unfortunately her class was fully booked and there was even a waiting list so I decided to go to the uni gym instead. I was there for an hour. I started off with three rounds of 500 metre rows for the best time possible with one minute rest in between. My best round was actually my last, which was 2:04 minutes. I was super happy with that. I then moved on to some squats and deadlifts until I ran out of time and had to head into town for a day of yoga with lululemon Glasgow and their social impact programme Here to Be. In this programme they partner with non-profit organisations to make yoga and meditation and their healing properties available to anyone.

The day of yoga was in support of Yogability, a charity who provides yoga to adults and children with special needs, their carers and others with barriers to entry. An incredible idea and at the moment they have a massive waiting list and are in need of funding.

For eight hours yesterday eight incredible teachers led a class and everyone who attended were asked to make a donation before or after the class. The day was beautiful and had an incredible vibe. I have been in 29 Club for lululemon events before but the room they had this time was jstunning. It felt like a cosy attic space and the sun shining through the windows was a wonderful bonus.

It was amazing to see everyone coming together to help. I made it to two classes, Laura McCrimmon’s and Julie Hanson’s. Two wonderful ladies who’s classes I don’t get to go to very often. Laura’s classes are a bit more strength based whilst Julie does Seasonal Yoga. Her class was so relaxing I almost fell asleep in savasana. It’s something about her presence that makes you so calm.

This day was lovely and I can’t wait for the next lululemon event! Hopefully lots of money was raised for this amazing cause.
