This year, I made a promise to try and step out of my comfort zone. Embrace the unknown and be more willing to do things I wouldn’t have done typically.
You guys know I’ve been striving to improve my fitness and get that post baby body back. I have a personal trainer, who has been working me hard and the type of exercise that we usually do is very high intensity. However, more recently I tried something a little different and I liked it!
I was invited by Farfetch to try a Yogasphere class at the top of London’s tallest skyscraper, the Shard. Up on the 67th floor, with only glass separating us from the open sky, I was in awe of the incredible skyline view of London. It was the perfect sunny day, the sun created a golden glow that eliminated the room and warming the glass surrounding the class. A common misconception is that yoga is the ‘easier’ form of exercise. To my surprise it worked and flexed parts of my body, even I didn’t know I could. Unlike the more traditional form of exercise, I left feeling simultaneously relaxed and invigorated. The continuous focus on breathing and mind definitely contributed to the immense tranquility of the class.
After the class, the Farfetch team took us for breakfast. You all know that I am a big foodie, but this certainly was a breakfast that tops many I’ve had! For me, this was the epitome of ultimate bliss. Normally, my mornings are usually quite hectic especially with the baby. So this really was a nice chance to do something a little different and put me in a state of calm and full of energy to take on my day on a positive note.
