Beach Yoga + Ocean Spray


It was a day in the works for quite some time. The weather hadn't cooperated and the event had to be rescheduled twice. Finally, we received a break in the rain and some beautiful bloggers and I met up to enjoy some beach yoga and delicious Ocean Spray® Mocktails. I brought together these beautiful ladies to celebrate being a mother as well as celebrate our mothers and share the best advice we have received from them!
I envisioned the day for quite some time. Some of the bloggers I had been following on Instagram for a while and some I already knew. It is always so much fun getting together with a group of ladies who all have a shared interest and who also love trying new things. Some of the ladies had never done yoga before and some were quite experienced. Lauren of Roses and Rain Boots brought her wonderful mother who practices yoga regularly. It was so nice to have her there! Jen from Red White & Denim does yoga all the time and nailed all of the poses! Yinka from Yours Truly, Yinka had such great energy and ideas for photos! Amanda from 5 Feet of Fashion is also a mother and has gorgeous style and a fun personality! I loved spending the morning with all of these truly inspiring ladies!
The drinks we tasted were the all new Ocean Spray® Mocktails. They are non-alcoholic juice drinks inspired by your favorite cocktails! They are so refreshing and delicious and offer an alternative to only drinking water while you are pregnant! These amazing juices are made with all real fruit juice, are 90 calories per serving, and have no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. They come in three GREAT flavors, Cranberry Peach Bellini, Cranberry Sangria, & Tropical Citrus Paradise. I do have to say, my favorite flavor of the three was the Cranberry Peach Bellini. I added a little bit of seltzer to mine for a little fizz! I have shared these with some friends who are currently expecting and they LOVE them too!
After the tasting, we got started on some beach yoga. My aunt, Maria, has been a yoga instructor for many years and a great figure in my life. I couldn't have had a better person be our yoga instructor for the day! She gave us some great tips on our form as well as showed us some new yoga poses to practice at home. She motivated us and gave us some wisdom. We all enjoyed the class and I know I am pretty sore today!
Our event was turned into a relaxing escape with yoga and the tasting of some amazing drinks! I think we all had our favorites and thought of a ton of different occasions that we could all enjoy our drinks! Jen said she was purchasing some for her beach vacation she was heading on shortly. I also stocked my fridge with my favorite flavors to enjoy with company at home or on the go!
Each of these ladies are all so inspiring in so many different ways! We also took the time to talk about the best advice our own mothers gave us. Each of the ladies had such different answers. Stay tuned for short clips for all of us telling our best advice from our mothers!

There were so many beautiful photos it was hard for me to stop including them! Keep on scrolling for some awesome photos from one woman who has been a true inspiration to me, Sasha Dale Photography.
