I woke up at 6.30 yesterday, and went straight for a morning party at Beyond, which is a beautiful studio in the midst of Mount Mary in Bandra. It’s surrounded by greenery, and is sort of hidden away from the homes and the people and the busy roads. The studio is also equipped with a steep walkway, that stretches from the gate down to the studio. It’s the perfect place for all you fitness or fit-to-be people out there. I did my first real workout in life with Cindy about three years back. Let’s just say, I’ve got a lot to thank her for.
Cassandra is another friend, who has curated these morning ‘parties’. The day started with a fitness flow session hosted by Cindy, followed by an incredible guided sound meditation. I have never successfully meditated in my entire life, but I will say, I think I succeeded yesterday. I was in this different mental space where I wasn’t sure if I was awake or asleep, and towards the end I sort of felt as if I was sinking in through the floor. Amazing! I’ve always fantasised about being able to go into a deep meditative state. Maybe this is it. Did I do it? I’m not even sure.
The morning ended in a dance party, with another friend, Armaan, playing his awesome music, while we indulged in breakfast from our friends from Kitchen Garden.
How am I blessed with so many talented friends?!
Thank you for having me, team. I can’t wait to move back to Bandra again, so that I can join more of these. And I can’t wait for the next morning party!
