John Frieda hosts a fun wellness day for local influencers

At the end of March John Frieda South Africa invited me to a relaxing and fun wellness event for local influencers.

About Ananda Sanctuary Yoga Studio

The John Frieda mental wellness/yoga event was held at the stunning Ananda sanctuary yoga studio.

The Ananda Sanctuary is situated in a beautiful old double- story Victorian building in the heart of Woodstock, Cape Town.

This premier studio is powered by sustainable solar energy and is an oasis of wellbeing which offers a broad spectrum of yoga classes.

With multiple yoga studios that are illuminated by natural light , an infra-red headed studio, open air courtyard decorated in succulents, serene front yard, book and wellness shop and peaceful Koi conservatory, yoga enthusiasts can enjoy a relaxing space that truly embodies a commitment to nature and sustainability.

My experience

It was my first time ever trying yoga and I  will not lie, I was increadibly nervous as to how many of the poses my increadibly unfit body would be able to achieve. I realised I’m not as flexible or balanced as I thought I  I was also suprised at how easy, relaxing and achievable many of the poses are. I had fun and certainly felt so much more relaxed after the yoga session.

What I learnt

One of the things that was highlighted throughout the morning was that of us setting an intention for how our day would go. I love the idea of setting an intention over my day and think I may just add yoga to my new self love routine.


We also enjoyed a wonderful lunch, some relaxing and chatting with colleagues in the influencer industry and getting a better look at the John Frieda products.

Lunch was a delicious array of fresh fruits and vegetables, filling salads and dainty quiche. A colourful visual delight that was even more delectable on the palate.
