Goodie bag sponsors included Vo Beauty Co., Soapstones Natural Skincare, RAERE lashes, Ponytail Mail, Consonant Skincare, and the delicious nud fud.

Yoga mats were graciously provided by lululemon stores The Local and Cumberland, allowing our attendees to just show up, without worrying about lugging around a yoga mat.

Tea for the workshop was provided by long-time Fitness by Jacflash sponsor, 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, they 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 drinking their Paradise Tea (an herbal blend with infused saffron) for the evening.

We were honoured to host The Wellness Witches, who led a fun and informative discussion about the solar plexus chakra.

Our yoga instructor Kay Ghajar (@kayghajar) then lead us in a one hour power yoga session. Her detailed, descriptive instruction and high energy made the class exciting, comprehendible and achievable for the women in the class who are all at different levels. As a special treat, we had Sophie Lukacs (@sophie.lukacs) playing the kora at the beginning and end of the yoga session. The kora is a 21-string lute-bridge-harp, which originated in West Africa. Sophie has been living and studying the kora in Mali for the past 3 years.

As always, we had lovely assistants Meredith, Jessica, and Ganna on hand throughout class helping everyone get deeper into each pose.

Raffle ticket prizes included two Safaroma tea + saffron sets, a facial care trio, and a free outfit rental from Boro. We love picking the raffle prize winners! Nat, one of the co-founders of Boro, joined us for the evening and helped us present the raffle prize to our lucky winner.

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.
