Perth Yoga With Bendy Breakfast

posted on: Monday, February 29, 2016

Yoga’s not your thing? Neither. Unless there’s food involved.

A VERY BENDY BREAKFAST

If rolling around on the lounge room floor during movie night while trying to reach the last slice of pizza before your brother gets it without having to move forward an inch, counts as yoga, then sure, I’ve done yoga before.

 

If it means getting up at the crack of dawn to sweat it out while making impressive shapes with your body, then last weekend would have been the first time for me.

 

Quite a departure from my usual waking up on a Saturday morning with a packet of chips still clenched in one hand and a half eaten sausage roll in the other from the previous night’s club crawl escapades, it would seem strange to think that I would ever wake up early on a weekend morning to break a sweat on top of a hotel roof.

To be honest, anything that exerts more physical energy than opening a bag of chips isn’t really worth anything to me. It’s bad enough that my brother drags me to the gym 5 days out of the week to get me to film dance videos for him and pretend like I know what the hell I’m doing in the weight room.

 

Anything that requires physical energy that results in food? Whole different story right there.

 

We met up with lovely Lindsay, the organiser of Bendy Breakfast at the super snazzy Alex Hotel in Northbridge, Perth for an hour of challenging but strangely relaxing yoga followed by fifteen minutes of meditation.

 

I’d be lying if I said it was easy (yoga is a real workout, guys!) and I’d be lying again if I said I didn’t use my camera as an excuse to not do some of the more difficult moves.

 

Strangely though, it was very relaxing to be pulling all sorts of ethereal moves while atop of a rooftop garden in the city and it was so calming to be meditating in the morning sunlight. I may or may not have fallen asleep for a few minutes.

IT’S NOT AS EASY AS YOU THINK, BUT IT DEFINITELY IS THAT RELAXING

THE PERFECT START TO A (POSSIBLY HUNGOVER) DAY 

If there was even a shred of jealousy at the people staying at the hotel who I spied eating their breakfasts, it was completely erased after seeing what us yogis (I’m a yogi now, right?) were about the feast on for breakfast.

 

Fresh fruit platters, homemade juices, protein balls, banana bread and chocolate chia puddings. That’s right, banana bread and chocolate for breakfast. I think I could do this every day if I didn’t live so damn far away from anything.

 

Local businesses came together to provide a delicious and healthy breakfast after a soothing session of yoga.

 

And even if you were out getting crazy the night before, the early start is totally worth it and I’m pretty sure would be able to cure a hangover to rival Lindsay Lohan’s.

Highly recommended if you’re into health and fitness, looking for something new and fun to do in Perth. No one would judge you even if you only went for the food..

The Fashann Monster was a guest at the Bendy Breakfast however, all opinions remain honest and my own.
