An Afternoon of Barre and Beauty!

A couple of weekends ago we spent Saturday afternoon at Benk + Bo event space enjoying an interesting and fun Beauty and Barre Event. It was organised by Zara Williams who led us through a 45 minutes mat-based barre class which was followed by a DIY natural and organic deodorant workshop led by Henrietta Lampkin, the founded of Elsa Organics. Have a read to see what we got on!

What: Barre and Beauty Event hosted by Zara Williams and workshop led by Henrietta Lampkin, founder of Elsa Organics

When: Saturday 24th February, 1-3pm

Where: Benk + Bo, Spitalfields

It’s the first time we have visited the gorgeous Benk + Bo, a newly established creative hub which is the ideal space to work, host events, enjoy yoga and pilates and sample their very delicious on site bakery! First of all we got put through our paces with Zara’s BarreBodyLondon class which is a ballet inspired body conditioning class with a mixture of Pilates, yoga and resistance training movements. It was a fast and varied 45 minute class that really got us moving!

After rehydrating with Press London juices, we went downstairs to the events area to start our DIY deodorant workshop. Henrietta gave us an introduction on the benefits of organic skin care and why we should really be checking the ingredients in all our skin care. Our largest organ is our skin and extremely absorbent, especially under our arms.

We split off into groups to start making our natural deodorants, we measured out our ingredients including shea butter, coconut oil, cacao butter, pink Himalayan salt and essential oils. After measuring out and then heating the ingredients we mixed in our choice of essential oils. Once poured into glass jars our homemade organic deodorants were done!

At the end of the class everyone was treated to Jilla tote bags which were provided for the goody bags and were filled with lots of gifts and discounts from conscious brands including People Tree, AmaElla, Ombar, The Soap Co, Husk and Honey plus many more!

We are looking forward to our next event at Benk + Bo on Saturday 28th April, Who Made My Activewear? event organised by Zara Williams and part of the Fashion Revolution movement. The event will include 5 different conscious activewear brands who all be hosting classes on the day, answering questions regarding their brand and selling in the pop up shop.
