Every month, we will be doing a community feature showcasing local #Pommeshells and sitting down for a Q&A with them! This month, we are sitting down with Maegan Merrifield.
What does your hair say about you? #thehairyouwear
My hair has a natural wave to it. I’ve learned to let go of it looking a certain way and let be what it is. This has made me actually love the way it is- a little wild, fun an unpredictable.
What do you love most about the Okanagan in the summer?
Definitely being outside in the sun. I love riding my bike to work, paddle boarding during the sunset, and a good yoga class in the breeze. I also love a good happy hour on the patio- the Waterfront Café is my current favourite.
Favourite sustainability hack!
Reusable water bottle and coffee cup. There are so many cute options! I’m at this point where I have no shame, I will literally walk across the street to get my coffee carrying a ceramic mug from the studio.
Tell us a bit about what’s happening this July at Solstice!
Solstice will be hosting rooftop yoga outside three mornings a week on the 7th floor of the Innovation Centre! These classes will be held on Monday and Wednesday at 7:30am and Friday at 6:30am. It’s a beautiful way to start the day- fresh air, sunshine, and a panoramic view of Lake Okanagan. Class price is included in a monthly membership or as a part of our punch packs. We provide mats and everything needed for the class. Come check it out!
We also have a special Twists and Backbends class on July 10th from 5:30-7:30pm. This 2-hour practice with Tessa Murray will lead you through a vinyasa flow to open and prepare the body physically and energetically to open the heart. With the intention of opening our heart centre, the space we practice in will become a safe, sacred container. You will be guided through a tension melting flow to warm and create space in the body and will allow you full experience what you can receive when your heart is open. The practice will close with restorative postures and meditation.
There will also be a special event on July 28th. We’re still working out the details, so stay tuned. I can tell you that our special events in the summer almost always include rooftop yoga and alcohol 🙂
