EveryBody Get Yo Yoga On !

FashionLayn Hangs out with Femology Detroit & LuluLemon

Who  knew that simple  breathing, body posture, and meditation can bring you so much good feelings to your life. Yoga is that special thing I need in my life to help me heal.  Long story short. I use to do yoga once week for a few months when I first started working downtown. I would take my yoga class during the lunch time since it was free. Wellness is a big thing where I work at. The perks of my job. Any who I switched to a new position, got really busy and yoga was not apart of my life anymore. SAD !

So last week Wednesday I was invited to this women only self care event hosted by Femology Detroit and LuluLemon:  Self Love Yoga. It took place right after work for me and it was hosted at Lululemon Detroit on Woodward Ave.  Sidenote: Femology Detroit is a modern business workspace created for women to interact, work, and thrive! founded by Meagan Ward.. shout out to you sis ! Back to the story:    I believe this was calling from GOD.. I am actually so grateful that I attend because I needed to be surrounded by other women and learn how to get center again.  I have been unbalanced for awhile now. So there you have it. When I first arrive I was really nervous because I have been out the yoga game for awhile. And I have bad habit of holding my breath around people… scared that I breathing to hard. Yea… I really got a lot of hang ups. Sidenote:  the yoga teachers were Adria and Rachel. They were some of the world nicest yoga instructor ever.  Please follow them on IG — Social accounts linked below ! 

Anywho I got the hang of it again.  I let go of everything and let my body melt right into my mat. I focused on my breathing. Took full breaths and let my heart and my other organs just relax. I was healing myself ! As women we put so much into other things ! We are planning launch party, managing our careers, and take care of our children…… we forget to take care of ourselves.  So use some of that free time and take care of yourself. If it not yoga just take a few minutes and be silent and just rest.  That is mediation. Sit and and bring your focus back to your breath.

So yes I came through with the denim distressed jacket.  This whole look came out of my closet. So no money spent. On another note, you already know that I love my bodycon dress.
