At ro/an, we design activewear that we #lovetomove in, whether it’s through our favourite flows, alignment classes, and new work-outs. As studios in both the UK and Hong Kong (HK) remain closed indefinitely, we look back at our time trying out Reformer Pilates at Flex Studios in Wong Chuk Hang, HK.
If you’ve done SUP before, you’ll know how serene it is wading through the waters of Hong Kong beaches. Taking in the beautiful scenery of sandy shores and a mountainous backdrop, the stress of the city will evaporate almost instantly. SUP yoga has the benefits of being both therapeutic and challenging.
This has been a strange year for many reasons and we count ourselves lucky that we have been able to explore new ways of connecting with people. From zoom classes with our friends or reaching out to yoga teachers whose classes we’ve always loved but never quite got the chance to chat to. As the global situation keeps changing, it’s been inspiring to see friends’ power through the uncertainty, and encouraging to see communities around us support each other.
We have been a fan of Wendy’s morning ‘power yoga’ class at Shan Studios in Wong Chuk Hang for a while. It is an invigorating and energising start to the day, perfect for clearing that morning fog and getting us ready and focused for the day ahead.
Her Yoga Practice is the first in Hong Kong to offer yoga, tailored for women that is geared towards fertility and healthy hormones. While babies are not on the cards for any of us at ro/an, balanced hormones and stress relief are welcomed with tea on the side. We got to catch up with Claire to tell us more about her practise and her secret skills.
