The 2nd annual Lemonade Yoga Festival was a success!!
So awesome to have this festival right in the Valley! Lemonade featured a variety of FREE outdoor yoga classes (doesn't get better than that!) for all ages from 11-6, SUP demonstrations and water fun, plus great local vendors.
We always love meeting up with local business owners, passionate yogis and kombucha newbies and fans. Lemonade did not disappoint.
A big thanks to Maegan, the White Pine Yoga team and instructors, AWE Yoga, and all volunteers and organizers!
And thanks to all who stopped by our booth. You guys are the reason we love festivals!
What do you do when life gives you lemons? Make Lemonade of course! And that we did! LEMONADE YOGA FEST was a success and will continue to grow and expand in years to come. That's right, this might have been the first but it certainly won't be the last. The City of Pembroke and White Pine Yoga have decided to make the Pembroke Marina Waterfront home to an annual yoga festival.
With the circumstances that sparked the impromptu yoga fest and market less than ideal, this is something HUGELY positive out of what was heading to be a terrible let down of a long weekend. Emerge Yoga Festival , set to be "Canada's Yoga Festival" was cancelled last minute leaving sponsors, vendors, musicians, ticket holders in the dust.
With the admirable grace and ingenuity of our friends, Pete and Shan of White Pine Yoga who created Lemonade Yoga Fest, we came together as a community and had an awesome day of FREE yoga classes, demos, and a vendor market.
We can't wait for next year!
We've got a jam-packed weekend of fun lined up for Canada Day weekend!
With the cancellation of Emerge Yoga Festival, we needed to pull up our socks and get busy trying to recoup our investment.
Our friends on Deep River's 150th Celebrations committee have invited us to join the vendor area downtown Deep River by the waterfront on Saturday, July 1st. With free yoga, kids activities, a reptile show, photo booth, beer garden, live music, vendors, food, fireworks and more, there is plenty of fun for the whole family! We will have a booth set up from 11am-4pm and again from 7pm-9:30pm with four flavours of kombucha on tap. Please note that we will only be selling cups not bottles, but you are more than welcome to bring a bottle or mug to be filled.
Our amazing friends at White Pine Yoga have made lemonade from lemons! With so many of us affected by an abrupt end to the yoga festival that was to take place this weekend, they have created an impromptu yoga festival, Lemonade! The Pembroke Marina Waterfront will be home to a one-of-a-kind FREE yoga festival this Sunday, July 2 from 11am-5pm. Featuring several yoga classes, aerial yoga demos, stand-up paddle board sessions, and a yogi vendor market, this is a festival you don't want to miss! We will be joining local vendors with kombucha on tap to keep you hydrated and refreshed during the classes. Come enjoy an afternoon of yoga and support local businesses!
A great afternoon at White Pine Yoga on Saturday for a home brewing workshop. We enjoyed spreading the booch love, chatting about all things kombucha, demonstrating brewing, answering questions, sharing our brew, and sending participants home with a starter kit and workbook. A big thanks to White Pine Yoga for facilitating the event, and to all who came from near and far. We enjoyed seeing friends, and meeting new faces with some we recognized from their online support over the past year. A very positive bunch, we thank you all for attending and wish you happy brewing!
We had such a blast at the Emerge + Expand event last weekend. Hosted by White Pine Yoga and Emerge Yoga Festival, over $500 was raised for Peaceful Path Yoga Project, a non-profit organization in the Valley offering free yoga to those in the community who may not otherwise have access to classes. With free delicious food, kombucha, yoga, prizes, and dancing, it was positive vibes all 'round. We encourage you to check out Emerge Yoga Festival, coming up on June 29 - July 2, for a weekend of yoga, meditation, workshops, musicians, camping, organic gourmet food and vendors right here in the Ottawa Valley. We are so thankful to have amazing people like Shannon, Pete, and Chessa who spread such light and positivity.
We joined some wonderful local vendors for a pop-up Christmas Market this past Friday evening. Featuring four flavours, we offered up our samples and 1L bottles for purchase alongside Engine House Coffee, The Hemp Cookie Company, Sigrid Naturals, Valley Girl Naturals, and Spring to Life Farm. So awesome to meet like-minded people who make such fantastic products right here in the Valley. Om for the Holidays was a great success and we want to say a big thank you to Shannon and Peter of White Pine Yoga for inviting us to their gorgeous studio for this event.
We are teaming up with some awesome people at White Pine Yoga on Friday, December 9th from 4pm-9pm for their OM FOR THE HOLIDAYS event. Stop in at the studio for some sweet deals on yoga packages and apparel, locally made products, prizes, samples, and of course, kombucha! 72 Pembroke Street is THE place to get some great stocking stuffers and maybe a little treat for yourself. ;)
