08/19/18 Jaclyn's Birthday Workshop 1- Fitness by Jacflash, Women’s Booty Workshop with Trainer Lara Marquez and Krav Maga Instructor and Positive Lifestyle Enthusiast Kevin Yateman

On Sunday, August 19th we held a very special fitness workshop to celebrate Jaclyn's birthday!! Thankfully we had fans to beat the heat as trainer Lara Marquez led us in her BOOTY workout series and upper body burner. 

We had goodie bags filled with Jaclyn's favourite things - Rawcology coconut chips, Handfuel almonds, Routine cream deodorant, and Pure Anada mascara. 

Kevin Yateman led us in a discussion about self-defence and we saw an exciting demonstration by one of his rockstar students. 

Lara led another kick-ass workout and we had amazing trainers helping us through it! 

We ended with raffle prizes and amazing treats by Flying Chia, made especially for Jaclyn's birthday! 

Extra special thank you to Anita Sports for the super comfortable and supportive compression leggings!

HEXO Pop-up Shop on Queen Street West

We were thrilled to bring this project to life! In a few short weeks, we transformed the iconic New Era store on Queen West into a sensational pop-up experience. We couldn't make any permanent changes to the space as the pop-up would last just 3 weeks, then had to be demolished and cleaned in 36 hours, so we got creative! We built walls, ceilings, and floors over the existing walls, ceilings, and floors - framing, drywall, mud, sanding, then painting each room from ceiling to floor. We built four rooms, each with its own monochromatic theme as per the HEXO logo colours.  To match the HEXO colours we sourced the perfect fabric, then re-upholstered and painted all furniture pieces.

Upon entering the space, one is greeted by a luxurious "speak-easy" plant shop. We built everything in the space - the mirrored surfaces, gold cash desk, acrylic pedestals. We lined the space with moss mounds and planted birch bark trees throughout. The plants were supplied by local plant shop, Dynasty Toronto.

This modern, clean, and bright design serves to welcome guests, who can enter the rest of the pop-up through nylon fabric strips.

After passing through the nylon "wall", guests are greeted by a neon blue HEXO logo and the option to enter two rooms. Down the stairs is the all-yellow room with lockers containing HEXO-branded apparel and a monochromatic HEXO logo, a perfect photo-op, below the bench. 

The blue room features a bed with Richard Clarkson cloud pendants hanging overtop. We added another dimension to the space by installing dynamic lights within the cloud fixtures.

Up a moss-covered staircase is the final room, an all-pink setup with an interactive mirror setup at its centre.

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.

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.
