As part of practicing awareness and education of yoga and personal growth, taking care of self, is sometimes far from reality. Peer pressures & media banter that creates today’s woman to be financially stable, uber mother, independant, home-concierge, princesses, all giving, doing epitomies of love, and to boot, multiple-orgasmic super heroines, sometimes self-indulgence does not occur to me, to be a priority at times. This week Oct 10-16th, for Spa Week many of the major spa players are offering discounts to encourage all to consider self-pampering as The Priority. Although I’ve all heard it said many times and understand the concept fully, first we need to take care of self, so that we can take care of others, the practice of this philosophy is sometimes hard to include to my lifestyle. For me time is an issue, not to mention the cost. I have no problem paying for the services, for the most part, the customer service and experience I have received are well worth the cost, however when I don’t consider self-pampering a priority, the cost, adds another reason to skip the spa this time. Thanks to Spa Week’s organisers who realize that this little fact of my life and possibly others, how nice that they have created a week-long event, for me, to go full out and pamper myself, big on the time, easy on the pocket.
I was equally honoured, that Bobby Berk, of Bobby Berk Home was invited to create the media lounge for the press night & chose to create a zenful rest place using Plank products. For the media professionals, who extend their work day to go through the plethora of information and test products to advise us, the best of the best, products and services to take advantage for Spa Week and beyond, how relaxing for them to feast their eyes on Plank’s Cobra Yoga Mat and relax their weary feet & butts on the beautifully constructed Gus furniture available from Bobby Berk Home, the go-to store for upgraded living. For much of the press, this was the first time for them to see Plank Mats live and experience it under foot.
