Guys and gals, I’m gonna be honest. Yoga is not my thing. I’ve tried real hard (okay, not that hard) to get into it because I know it’s something I need in my life. I’m very aware of all the benefits and I’m still determined to make it a hobby. If only so that I can master a new party trick in the form of a one armed handstand whilst doing the splits. I know I know, I’m missing the point of yoga here.
So when I was asked along to a rooftop yoga event by Obrigado and BALANCE magazine, I knew I had to give it a go. If anything was going to get me into yoga, it would be wellness warrior Lotte Bowser and a sunny rooftop spot with a stunning view over London.
The weather did not disappoint. I was pretty keen for a last ditch attempt at getting a sunshine glow before Autumn really hits. Wishful thinking – takes me a whole week in the sun before the slightest hint of colour.
The yoga session was perfectly designed for a mix of abilities, from the amateur (me, the wobbly one at the back) to the pro (helLO handstand galore).
The yoga session was followed by a the most incredible brunch by Rock My Bowl. It was a super vegan spread – think fresh fruit, green smoothes, acai bowls and avo on toast. Essentially a blogger’s dream Insta set up.
I’ll always be a greasy fry up girl at heart. But this was just the detox I needed after a heavy night out before (hungover yoga not the one). The food was beautiful and utterly delicious.
I think I could get used to yoga…
…as long as it’s followed by a four course brunch…
…and on a rooftop.
I don’t ask for much.
