We’re still on a buzz from the weekend, after the launch of the first ever #SecretLondonSessions! We hope everyone who came to #SecretFitness had as much fun as we did – it was an absolute blast! A big well done to everyone who showed off their skills and balance on the water – it isn’t all that easy to downward dog on a floating SUP board, ya know!! We also want to say a huge thank you to Alpro, our main sponsor, who set up their delicious pop-up smoothie bar and served up tasty plant-based treats to our Secret London SUP yogis throughout the day, as well as our incredible events partner, Collective Two, who helped make everything happen!
24 hours before the event, we revealed the ‘secret location’ to the lucky Londoners who managed to get their hands on our limited #SecretFitness tickets. The event was held in none other than the tranquil and urban Merchant Square, with the classes taken on the water of Paddington Basin. And the weather was on our side – it was a glorious London day for some open air yoga.
Thanks to the Headmasters salon station, our SL yogis had their hair prepped, pinned up and pretty for the aquatic sporting activities. There were photographers there, so we obviously wanted everyone to look fiiiiine.
We were seriously impressed with everyone who took part in the SUP yoga classes, which were led by the wonderful Jen (and her little four-pawed friend Clyde) at Pure Yoga Zone.
Yes, it did get a bit damp at times, but being on the water, that was inevitable. Thankfully, Superdry were on hand, providing flip flops to make everyone feel extra comfy once they had dried off.
After the 45 minute yoga session, everyone could create and devour the delicious Alpro smoothie bowls, which were generously sprinkled with tasty toppings provided by Meridian Foods and Qnola. Mmmm. This one, which was made using Alpro’s Plain with Coconut Big Pot, apple, kale and ALL of the toppings, is certainly still making our mouths water.
We hope everyone left the first #SecretFitness event feeling revived, refreshed and nourished. If you have any snaps from the day, tag us on Instagram @Secret.London, using #SecretFitness #SecretLondonSessions.
