SWEATY BETTIES WATCH THE SUN RISE WITH EARLY MORNING YOGA!June 29th, 2009
It was early to bed and early to rise this morning for the Sweaty Betty team, as we hit the city streets for a spot of alfresco yoga on the revolutionary Shakti Mat.
Over 10 yoga enthusiasts, led by Bondi guru Simon Borg-Olivier, limbered up in the chilly temperatures and performed their flexible routines to an audience of suits and city workers in Martin Place, which was filmed by Channel 7’s Sunrise Show. Click here to watch the yoga masters in action!
Presenters Kochie and Mel are the latest to try out the modern ‘bed of nails’ – the Shakti Mat is the ultimate yoga partner, featuring 600 acupressure points to ease tension, stimulate blood circulation, and produce a huge rush of endorphins (the feel-good hormones) to elevate you into a blissful state of relaxation. Designed to be used alone, as a meditation tool, or as an accessory for simple yoga steps, the Shakti Mat is already causing a stir in the holistic community and has a dedicated following throughout Australia.
Even standing on the sidelines, we felt the calming auras wash over us, and headed back to the office feeling serene, calm, and ready to tackle the week ahead!
