Lululemon reTREAT;

Yesterday, I had the absolute pleasure of going along to a free Lululemon yoga day, called ‘reTREAT’, filled with lots of stretching & yummy treats.

We had four hours of yoga & pilates (broken up into two blocks) with local Lululemon ambassadors/instructors  & then an hour of Yoga Nidra to finish the day. We had two breaks where the lovely Green Smoothie Co & Nood peeps provided chia seed puddings, green smoothies, fruit skewers, fresh yoghurt and a bunch of other goodness.

Session 1 was Yoga with Phoebe from Yogaworx; Session 2 was with Hayley from Beyond Being Power; after lunch we had Session 3 which was pilates with Sophie from Aspire; and Session 4 was with Rhyanna from Rhyanna VL Yoga.

And of course, Yoga Nidra at the end was incredible. Taken from this website, Yoga Nidra is one of the deepest of all meditations, leading awareness through many levels of mental process to a state of supreme stillness and insight. Yoga Nidra means yogic sleep. It is a state of conscious deep sleep.

In meditation, you remain in the waking state of consciousness, and gently focus the mind, while allowing though patterns, emotions, sensations and images to arise and go on. However, in Yoga Nidra, you leave the waking state, go past the dreaming state, and go to deep sleep, yet remain awake.

To stay that Yoga Nidra was the perfect blissful end to the weekend would be an understatement!

As we were finishing up for the day, I got such a massive flood of gratitude wash over me. For the Cottesloe Lululemon team for organising the event, the lovely yogi’s that gave up their Sunday to do an hour of yoga/pilates for free, Ath & Todd at Green Smoothie Co & Nikki at Nood for all the yummy treats. These people did it for the perth community. No other reason! Blessed doesn’t even come close to describing it.
