Every once in a while, a group of inspiring women come together with a shared passion – to live and breathe Move Nourish Believe. We were fortunate enough to be a part of something special last Saturday when we geared up for a morning of Active Living with Lorna Jane Clarkson, LA’s hottest trainer Christine Bullock, and the cream-of-the-crop of local fashion and fitness bloggers. We were already in awe and inspired by these lovely ladies online, so we couldn’t wait to get to know them in person.
Here at Lorna Jane, we choose to lead by example. We get a serious kick out of showing women of the world how easy it truly is to Move Nourish Believe every day – it’s what we’re all about. To show some serious gratitude for our cherished SOAL Sisters (Sisterhood of Active Living), we held a Santa Monica event for our active advocates, who just like us, are equally as dedicated to inspire and teach others how to make MNB part of their everyday existence.
The ladies arrived enthusiastically, sporting their latest LJ colors, from fern green to hot flamingo. They snapped photos with Lorna and their fellow fit bloggers as they eagerly waited for the class to kick off.
First, Lorna took the mic to share her passion for Active Living and inspiring ways to Move Nourish Believe every day. The beautiful and engaging Christine Bullock then took the stage, bursting with positive energy. Instantly, we knew this workout was going to be freakin’ awesome.
Christine quickly had the whole room moving with a high-energy dance class, complete with Pilates, toning and stretching. There were smiles all around as we grapevined, planked, and plied alongside Lorna and our new fit friends. By the time we were finished, she had sufficiently kicked our butts!
After the sweat session, iPhones were out in full force as the girls got snap-happy by uploading their best selfies to the hashtag #activewithlornajane.
It goes without saying that we worked up an appetite, so we headed over to one of our favorite local spots, True Food Kitchen, for some nourish time. While sipping on pomegranate limeade and munching edamame dumplings, the theme of the conversation was, of course, Active Living and many stories were exchanged over lunch. Lorna shared her own personal journey, from her humble beginnings sewing one-off pieces for the women in her fitness classes to her career as an iconic designer at the forefront of a global active movement.
Finally, to work off our yummy and nourishing lunch, we exercised one of our favorite cardio workouts of all: shopping at Lorna Jane! Bloggers were styled up in the latest January collection pieces and left the store with a pep in their step, ready and raring to share the Active Living philosophy with the world.
We are so much stronger when we come together. Why not organize an MNB meetup with some of your sporty sisters? Be sure to hashtag #activewithlornajane so we can see how you Move Nourish Believe every day.
