Our morning started with an hour-long Vinyasa Flow yoga class that got me quite exhausted, to be honest. Since I’ve been sick the previous two weeks and can’t really call myself the most sportive person in the world (actually, I might rather be the laziest and worst stretched person ever), it was quite difficult for me to keep up with the others. Nonetheless, I totally enjoyed the session and have set my mind on doing yoga regularly from now on. It’s the perfect balance between physically challenging and mentally fulfilling! Plus, it would for sure help my knee and back problems that are caused by my unequally long legs (my left leg is 0,5mm longer than the right one and you won’t believe how much of an effect that little difference can have on your spine, posture and joints).
After yoga class, we had a super delicious, vegan brunch with chia pudding with coconut milk and vegan cake made by Greenhouse by Ginko, and porridge and freshly squeezed juices made by lovely Ju from juyogi.com (who will also be teaching some yoga classes at Yogalife studio from January on)! We sat together and chatted for quite some time, and it was so much fun to get to know the other bloggers, lots of them from Graz as well! So who was there exactly? Besides Nicki, Ju and myself, there were Simone and Sabrina from goodyogibadyogi.com, Diana from dogdaysofsummer.at, Kat from curlsnchard.com and Christina from christinawaitforit.wordpress.com.
If you are from Graz and either already doing yoga and looking for a new studio to try out, or if you’re a newbie like myself and want to try yoga for the first time, I can recommend you give the Yogalife studio a go. Nicki is such a nice person with a warm voice and positive charisma, I’m sure you’ll like her just as much as I did! And, there will be another yoga brunch pretty soon, on the 3rd of January to be exact, so mark that date in your calendar and head over to the Yogalife site to check out their class schedule.
And of course I don’t want to withhold the pictures I made of our brunch from you so here we go 😉
I spotted some beautiful delicate bracelets in the studio from Gedankenkraft that are made in Bali and fairtrade. Yay!
Also, you can buy T-Shirts from Nice to meet me, made from recycled materials. They produce sustainably in Europe, sweatshop-free and without child labour. Plus the shirts look mighty fine!
And last but not least, not only did I leave the studio happy and with a full stomach, we also got a cute Yogalife goodie bag that contained a Gedankenkraft bracelet, Friya drink and Teatox tea. Thank you Nicki and Yogalife, I’ll for sure be back! xx
