Toronto’s sixth annual Green Living Show kicked off last Friday at Exhibition Place and continued throughout the weekend. Three Minute Egg® Canada made its first appearance this year, teaming up with JadeYoga to exhibit in the shows latest addition – the Sweat Equity Yoga Pavilion. Sponsored by Sweat Equity Magazine – the only Canadian publication dedicated to yoga, fitness, and lifestyle – the pavilion featured demos, mini-workshops, and yoga classes from top teachers in the GTA.
I was fortunate enough to reconnect with fellow dancer Eva Redpath, creator of Body Conditioning by Dancers, and got a serious workout during her challenging and inspirational demonstrations. During the show, Eva and Robyn Baldwin (fitness model and competitor) filmed their Mid Month Motivation video direct from our booth at the Green Living Show! April’s motivational demonstration features a fantastic hip opening exercise utilizing the Harmony mat by JadeYoga. Eva left the show with a beautiful Teal Green Namast-Egg Starter kit in toe, so keep your eyes open for her upcoming mid-month features!
Toronto editor for Flare Magazine and fitness writer for The Globe and Mail, Maureen Halushak, also stopped by to pick up a set of Eggs. Maureen will be publishing a piece on the Three Minute Egg slated to appear in the Globe’s Life section in next Monday’s newspaper (April 30th, 2012). In preparation for the article, I set Maureen up with Toronto based yoga instructor Duncan Parviainen, who enjoys working with the Eggs due to the “strengths the egg has over a standard block”, including wrist protection and lower back support.
Toronto’s Green Living Show was loads and loads of fun. I met some amazing people and even picked up a few great personal items – there was honestly something there for everyone. I was happy to finally find the perfect eco-friendly baby gift for my sister and brand new nephew at Mayukori, while also replenishing my bath product collection with fantastic smelling Worry-Free shampoo, conditioner, and body wash from Original Sprout.
I’m very proud to be part of a community that values and supports the importance of socially conscious initiatives. Consumer shows such as the Green Living Expo not only help to support Canadian businesses of all sizes, but those who strive to produce high quality and affordable products that are better for both your health and the environment.
