The really sad thing about today is that I already know it’s not going to be as good as yesterday, because yesterday, my morning started off bright and early (er, well, dark and early, actually) with candlelight sunrise yoga at Lululemon’s gorgeous, brand spankin’ new Walnut Street store. For our very first Be Well Philly Underground event of the year, we teamed up with Lululemon Walnut Street, along with Stripp’d Juice and Pure Fare for a morning that was kind of unbeatable.

I, along with 60 other yogis, got my downward dog on in a truly great class led by the fabulous Daniel Cordua of Palo Santo Wellness Boutique, and Jean-Jacques Gabriel of Maha Yoga and Studio 34. There were candles everywhere — like seriously, so many candles. Plus, the class ended as the sun was rising. Yep, it was magical.

Afterward, everyone refueled with a delicious granola bar from Pure Fare and one of Stripp’d’ Juice’s Lyteposts, an electrolyte-filled drink with cold-pressed grapefruit juice, sparkling water and rosemary. And there was even a photo booth on deck to document the happy-despite-having-not-had-any-coffee faces of all the yogis after class. Again, pure magic.

Big thanks to Daniel and Jean-Jacques, along with our friends at Lululemon, Stripp’d and Pure Fare, for helping us to have the best morning ever. And a big round of applause for all the Undergrounders who rolled out of bed at 5-something in the morning. I am truly impressed.
