Elle About Town, March & April 2014

March was pretty much a blur of work, work and more work! It was difficult to fit training around it all never mind do anything exciting! …I’ve tried hard to restore some balance come April and am focusing on events I have on the horizon…

Here’s a little bit of what’s gone down the last couple of months worth reading about!

Classes: Capoeira at Victors Lab 

I popped along to this new studio in Peckham, South London to see what it was all about! The owners are also designers who are currently working on a sportswear range! The prototypes looked pretty damned good so I am looking forward to seeing the final product!

The studio offers a basic timetable at the moment including yoga and capoeira. I popped along to their capoeira class one evening, and got the workout of my life! I love hoe capoeira works every part of your body as much as the other – making you strong, flexible and fearless!

I’m sure there will be lots of exciting things to come out of Victors Lab in the future so keep an eye out here!

Events: The Movement 

Taking place at the Royal Opera House in London, lululemon took over the joint and hosted 400+ yogis in a yoga class with the Philharmonic Orchestra playing live! The Jivamukti class was led by one of the lululemon ambassadors, Emma Henry in a most spectacular setting! In all the years I’ve lived in London, I have never been to the Royal Opera House! Post class, we were treated to prosecco, raw chocolate and a DJ spinning all the tunes into the evening! …Once in a lifetime! That is all!

Events: lululemon london Grand Opening Party 

lululemon did it again and wowed London with their Grand Opening Party. This event was pure celebration after lululemon opened the doors to their first European store in London’s Covent Garden. they marked the occasion by bringing their manifesto to life! Breathe deep and appreciate the moment?! Yup, that’d be the gin that I inhaled! LOVE…in big bright lights! They created their manifesto and we all got to live it for the evening…

Coming Up….

livability 5km Rabbit Run, Clapham Common 
First event (and medal!) for 2014 will be from this 5km fun run! I’ll also be presenting the warm up for all the runners that morning so I am very excited! Check out the {event details here}

Geneva Marathon Weekend 
In just a few weeks, I will be jetting off to Geneva to take part in a marathon relay! Right now, all I can think about is my running outfit! Will be treating myself to something new I think! Am also looking forward to discovering a new city in a new country! Getting to run there is a bonus!

We Own The Night, London 
Last year, I missed this event so I’m ensuring I get fully involved in the 2014 version! Plenty of inspiration was in Nike Town London for a race night outfit…

…and a race pack to get me excited! If you are running WOTN in London, don’t forget to go pick up your race pack before the event! 

What do you like to treat yourself to when you have exciting events coming up?! 

Got anything interesting coming up in the next month you would like to share?!
