Relax session by Suraya Sam - Get in touch with yourself
Immerse yourself with easy Yoga poses, breathing exercises and Sound Therapy. During Savasana, the Gong is played to create soothing and resonant sound vibrations. By bringing the body’s resonance back into balance, you feel relaxed & lighter, bringing a sense of well-being and helping to reduce stress levels.
"Every time you do any type of exercise, not just yoga, remember to feel your body. Not in order to judge it, but simply how it feels. Is it strong or weak, loose or tight? It sounds simple, but reconnecting with your body without judgement is the first step to experiencing your surroundings." - Sue

Founded by Chip Wilson in Vancouver, Canada in 1998, lululemon is a yoga-inspired, technical athletic apparel company for women and men. What started as a design studio by day and yoga studio by night soon became a standalone store in November of 2000 on West 4th Avenue in Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighbourhood.
The vision for the store was to create more than a place where people could get gear to sweat in - to create a community hub where people could learn and discuss the physical aspects of healthy living, mindfulness and living a life of possibility.
About Meaghan See:
The Busy Woman Project Community Ambassador Meaghan believes that time can be made for anything that has an importance in one's lives - for her, having an active body, and in turn, an active mind, places first in her everyday life.
Kicking start the day with a run, a yoga class or an indoor cycling session at Anthem where she teaches, followed by her day job or errands, and ending off the day with teaching at WeBarre (or Anthem), has become routine for Meaghan.
Fueling each day with the endorphins she obtains post-workout and post-teaching, Meaghan is a self-confessed fitness adrenaline junkie who constantly challenges not only herself, but also her clients, to push themselves further to get stronger each time they attend her class.
Meaghan has recently taken her running adventures to the next level, participating in various half-marathons to prepare herself for a marathon she had randomly registered for last year, in a city she loves - the San Francisco Marathon.
