On Tuesday July 24th, Fitness by Jacflash hosted another Power Yoga Women’s Workshop with Yoga Instructor Kay Ghajar and Art therapist Afrinda @artology!
Goodie bag sponsors included Hilroy notebooks, Way of Will, Nagi macaroons and Bathorium.
Way of Will Set up shop at the workshop to sell their natural essential oil body care system for active lifestyles.
Yoga mats were provided by Lululemon The Local for the evening.
And tea was provided by Safaroma. Safaroma was created in response to a desperate need to provide a channel for thousands of Afghan female farmers to sell their products at fair market prices, thereby doing away with unscrupulous middlemen and dominant distribution corporations. In 2016, we began work with the Ghoryan Saffron Farmers' Union and expanded as a trusted partner for other women's co-ops as well as individual farmers.
We were honoured to host Toronto Born Artist/Art Therapist Afrinda @ARTOLOGY, who spoke to us about therapeutic art making and led us in a group session.
Our yoga instructor Kay Ghajar then lead us in a one hour power yoga session. Kay (@kayghajar) has been practicing yoga for almost 10 years. She began exploring different styles of yoga after taking courses in positive psychology, which informed on the benefits of yoga and meditation. After a traumatic life event in university and failed progression through traditional counselling, she started practicing yoga and keeping a gratitude jar, which began her healing process and changed her outlook on life.
Kay received her 200-hour teaching certificate at Power Yoga Canada and will lead us through an amazing Power Yoga session. Her detailed, descriptive instruction and high energy makes the class exciting, comprehendible and achievable for the women in the class who are all at different levels.
