It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

Jessica Dewar Yoga_7 Days of Christmas Giveaways

As I write this I’ve just received even more emails from local businesses who are putting their hands up to help contribute to our end of year Christmas Charity Yoga Event.

There have been key sponsors that have supported us from the beginning and it is with a grateful heart that I thank each and every one of those businesses / those people who have believed in us and our cause.

I’m in my office with a snoring Lola beside me, trying to get myself organized for the end of year and start of 2018. Looking at the table I just drafted, I am overwhelmingly excited to share that not only is our Christmas Charity Event raising money for Animals Australia (a charity very dear to my heart), but we have some incredibly awesome prizes to give away that morning!

Here is the list of prizes that our students can win!!!

  • 2XU Camberwell are giving one lucky winner a pair of their premium compression leggings.
  • Elevation Floatation are giving away a luxury 4-Float Pack as well as two blissful single Float Sessions.
  • The Petal Provedore are giving away one of their signature flower arrangements.
  • Village Cinemas are giving away 2 x Gold Class tickets and 2 x regular cinema movie tickets.
  • The Source Bulk Foods Camberwell is giving away a Vegan Hamper packed with all sorts of goodies!
  • Coltivare is giving away a gift voucher to use in their gourmet fruit and veg shop at The Well.
  • Stretch Now are giving two lucky winners a organic cotton yoga bolster to inspire practice at home.

That's over $1000 in prizes to give away!!!

I’m absolutely blown away by how supportive these businesses have been of our little studio and dreams for a kinder world.

For students to win these prizes we have decided to create the 7 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAY!

In the 7 days leading up to our Yoga @ The Theatre: A Christmas Charity Event, students have the chance to win a prize every day!

All students will need to do is:

1)   Register for the Yoga @ the Theatre: A Christmas Charity Event

2)   Tag 3 friends

Entries will close at 11.00pm each day and winners will be announced the following morning at 8.00am. One entry per person per day. All prizes will be given out at the event.

Our first day of Christmas will start this Friday, December 8th, 2017. Be sure to keep a look out on both Instagram and Facebook!

Sending big, excited hugs to you all,

Crazy weekend - crazy week ahead

Well it’s been a huge weekend. 9 months of planning for my partners surprise 30th birthday has finally paid off. I got all the boys here from around the country (and world) and they had an absolute blast. And I know my Owen was so thrilled to see them all as they were to see him. As one could imagine, this planning has taken over my life a little but now I can get focused again on my yoga practice and prep for India.

I’ve spent some time talking with Craig Mallett who is a PT and natural movement instructor. He runs workshops and retreats throughout the year, which is exactly what I want to do but in the world of yoga. Craig has some great contacts in Melbourne who he wants to hook me up with which is wonderful. It’s really exciting talking with people about my new plans, my new life, and hearing how supportive people are of this decision. I would love to partner with Craig at some stage and run a retreat. His training coupled with my yoga training could work beautifully together. Anything is possible!

This morning I went through the names of all the postures I have been learning so far. I’m getting a little quicker with the names which is a good sign. Only a few hundred more to learn!

Getting over the hurdle of Christmas will be good. My training regime is all over the place right now!

Tomorrow I will finally notify my employer of my resignation. I am so excited about this because of what this will mean on an emotional and symbolic level. This is it. This is the beginning of something new, exciting, terrifying… It’s happening! I would have notified my boss on the 24th but he will be on leave then. Therefore - tomorrow is it!
