Event Recap: Smart Girls Sweat Summer Pop Up!

With the record heat in Toronto this summer, it doesn’t take much to break a sweat! That’s why, for our special summer “pop up” event, we decided to slow things down with a peaceful and mindful workout, perfect for busy professionals in the summer.

On Thursday, July 14th, 30 professional women from all over the GTA came together for our summer #sweatworking event to try office-chair yoga. We’ve all heard it – “sitting is the new smoking”. Even for those of us who are active, sitting all day at the office takes a toll on our bodies, especially on the hips, low back and shoulders.

We were so excited to have Utkata Yoga join us for this event. Inna, the founder of Utkata, lead a mindful 30-minute office chair yoga practice, taking us through a series of postures to relieve some of the tension we build up from regular sitting. We ended with a short meditation practice.

After the workout, we took a break for some healthy snacks and hydration. Special thanks to Flow Water, Greenhouse Juice, Genuine Health and Arbonne for the healthy treats to help keep our energy up!

We ended the night with a speed-networking session, where we did 5-minute rotations of networking so all our Smart Girls could meet each other! Special thanks to Lole, Arbonne, doTerra, JustTryIt, and Jules Baskets for the awesome door prizes!
