Cancer Research UK Red Carpet Event
As a big believer in The Law of the Attraction (how often have we waited for a bus for what seemed like an eternity, only to have three arrive at once)!We have had quite a fabulous fashionable time in recent weeks. #teamyogaleggs found ourselves inundated with offers to appear in some wonderful charitable fundraising fashion shows (well our yoga leggs have) and when the universe offers us these opportunities to display our yoga leggings and help raise much needed funds for good causes; we are only too happy to oblige.
The beautiful and talented designer and dressmaker Amy Rose Batty combined forces with her friend Charlotte and hosted a spectacular evening of Red carpet glamour at Mooro’s Woolston Hall Abridge Road Chigwell Essex. Amy displayed a whole collection of bespoke evening and day wear and wowed the audience with her latest collection of jaw dropping jewel encrusted swimwear. Amy thought our fun, vibrant attention grabbing yoga leggs would be a colourful addition to the show; so we accepted her offer, as Fashion Leggings are the latest craze (the papers say; so it must be true)!
The opportunity also gave us a little kick up the backside to get busy in the tops department (you had kept asking). This inspired us to create some positive slogan sweatshirts and vests to compliment our leggings range. Serious fun has almost become our motto; as you can imagine finding yourself suddenly running a business that emerged from a hobby (how did that happen)!!!!! Can be at times, both serious and fun. We wanted a sweatshirt with a life affirming, positive message that wasn’t essentially about yoga; as we have said before “yoga leggs” are not only for yoga . Yoga has a very special place in our hearts and inspires a happier healthier way of life; but we encourage and love to see woman of all ages, shapes and sizes wearing our fitness wear. Even if they aren’t actually doing any exercise (we won’t judge). What can be more positive than I love Life? Buddha says our most precious possession is our human life (no it is not our I phone 6 or a Rolex watch) If only we could remember every day to be thankful for this crazy gift. Anyway making tops is #seriousfun and we have so many ideas for brightening up the winter months; so watch this space. We thought we would make them limited edition just to make them extra special (so be quick)! The evening was a huge success, great food, music, fashion and raffle prizes(and the odd glass of prosecco) also time spent with friends; all raising money for cancer research UK.
Whilst purchasing a pair of storm yoga leggs at a recent pop up shop at Repose Power Plates Studio Susanne Runacres asked if we would like to pop up at a local Ladies shopping Event she was organising to raise funds for Breast Cancer care UK. We were delighted to accept her offer and were only too happy to; A) show off our yoga leggs range and B) do our bit for a very worthy cause. We were surrounded by some gorgeous ladies selling a wide variety of tempting wares; and #teamyogaleggs had a lovely day, as an added bonus we even won a fabulous raffle prize. The day was a great success and raised over £1500 for a charity that is close to many of our hearts.
The Yoga and Spirit Show
When we were invited to bring our yoga leggs to Surrey for the yoga and spirit show by Charli Sparks www.yogarhythm.org and take part in a yoga fashion show ,we wasn’t quite sure where we were going or what we would be signing up for. But the words Yoga and Spirit kind of sold it to us and off we went. Not only did we get to spend the day surrounded by card readers, incense, experts in natural skincare products and a whole host of other spiritual delights (one of us may of had a little reading)! We got to meet up with lovehenna.co.uk again who was selling beautiful tops that complimented our yoga leggs perfectly in the fashion show and was working tirelessly to raise awareness and funds for Yogagivesback.org We were more than happy to donate one of our newest products our yoga kit bag to their upcoming raffle at this year’s www.omyogashow.com
The fashion show was #seriousfun, Charli and her yogis performed a fabulously choreographed routine of postures and dance moves. They definitely put yoga leggs through their paces and then some! The ladies of Surrey were very keen to try on and purchase their own. We were made to feel extremely welcome. We were very happy to take our colourful collection of yoga wear out of Essex and connect with some very nice people (some of them didn’t even do yoga) who really seemed to love our products; it’s all part of our yoga journey, Namaste.
