with Good Yoga Life
Good Yoga Life is taking over one of London’s busiest tube stations for a week of classes and events with some of London’s top yoga and wellbeing experts. The week-long event in Old Street Station aims to positively interrupt the daily commute and offers commuters some much needed zen. Chi products will be available at the event all week so if you fancy nourishing your body with our products while taking part in some relaxing yoga practice, Old Street Station is the place to be!
Shoreditch commuters will join wellbeing experts such as Annie Clarke (Mind Body Bowl), Julie Montagu (The Flexi Foodie), Jody Shield (Life Tonic), Adam Husler (Boys of Yoga), Cat Meffan (Adidas), Marcus Veda (Yotopia), Emily-Clare Hill (Lululemon), Steffy White (Soho House & instructor to Deliciously Ella), Addictive Daughter & many more as part of a week-long takeover from 20th-26th June. The event also includes London’s first ever 12 hour Yoga-Relay, which will see up to 400 people raise money for homelessness charity Shelter on Saturday 25th June.
Julie Montagu- ‘The Flexi Foodie’
70,000 commuters pass through Old Street Station every day who are tired, stressed and not at all present. Research shows that we’re one of the most affected European cities when it comes to transport disruption and as a result mental wellbeing is affected severely. Last year a survey of more than 5500 commuters in London, Rome, Barcelona, Berlin, Madrid and Paris found that some rate the worry and strain of the commute to work on a par with a relationship breakdown – and often worse than the job itself! This week-long takeover offers a real opportunity to alleviate the stress of daily London commuting and get more people involved in yoga.

– Well – Being
OUR COLLABORATION WITH WORK -WELL-BEING.
Chi coconut water was proud to support Work Well Being on the 13th of March for their first ever event!
WHAT IS WORK – WELL – BEING?
Louise and Abby are passionate & experienced practitioners and advocates of everything wellbeing! Both having many years experience within these practices has resulted in them establishing a network of the very best Wellbeing Warriors (teachers!) in London today.
Their belief is that there is a better way to work, we are working longer and harder than ever before, with time for our own personal wellbeing being pushed to the bottom of our to-do-list. It is time for employers to provide their staff something far more meaningful, wellbeing.
Work-Well-Being are on a mission to change the way we work, with the belief that wellbeing should be a core part of the working day, not something that individuals are forced to try and cram in during their few spare hours of an evening, or an often already full-packed weekend. Not only are the benefits of this huge to the individual, wellbeing is also a real business tool. There is no trade-off between living a well-rounded life and high performance; performance is actually improved when our lives include time for reflection, restoration and renewal. An environment where people are happy in their jobs and given the respect and freedom to be themselves will enable the best work and ideas to flourish.
The services that Work-Well-Being offer make it a whole lot easier for the workplace to offer wellbeing to their employees! They program the full day using their network of the very best teachers, manage all of the internal promotion of the event, manage all class sign-ups, provision of equipment & insurance and importantly evaluate the success & impact of the event to the workplace.
During Work-Well-Being’s event there where 2 yoga classes,2 meditation sessions an inspirational talk on How to Manage Work Stress and individual Health Coaching consultations. Chi happily sent over a load of coconut water to keep everyone hydrated and energized – the perfect drink to have at hand for these activities! Here are a few photos from the event – a total success with some great feedback to both Chi and Work-Well-Being.
We hope you enjoyed the event if you went and if not really recommend attending the next one! To find out how, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
