Fitness trends come and go but the benefits of the ancient practice of yoga continue to be of high value for people looking to strike the perfect balance between life, exercise and enjoyment.

To announce the launch of its new FW14 Gymwear Collection, Oysho organised a ‘Yoga Day’ for its media and blog partners to a yoga wellness treat on 10 November 2014 at the Six Senses Spa at Sharq Village & Spa.

Yoga is a physical, mental, and spiritual practice or discipline, that aims to transform the body and mind. The term denotes a variety of schools, practices and goals in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism.

Marhaba was invited to the Oysho’s ‘Yoga Day’ on the morning of 10 November 2014 which started off with a one-hour outdoor yoga session by the beach. Before the yoga session kicked off, the Oysho team distributed comfortable and loose blue Oysho shirts to the yoga participants. In addition, each participant was provided with a yoga mat, towel and water. For many of the participants, this was their first attempt at yoga therefore the yoga session was for beginners. The professional yoga instructor at Six Senses Spa would instruct while the participants followed in his command. The session consisted of neck rolls, leg lifts, should stand, bridge, forward bends, spinal twist and sun salutation as well as demonstrating poses like the fish, mountain, tree, cobra, child, downward dog, pigeon, triangle and more. Marhaba’s favourite was the final relaxation where we sat flat on our backs without movement for 10 minutes or more, listening to only our surroundings and concentrating on our senses – smell, hearing and touch.

The yoga session was followed by a healthy brunch featuring a variety of delicacies including tuna and chicken sandwiches, fruits and cakes along with a selection of fruit juices and tea. While brunching, the participants browsed through Oysho’s latest fall-winter gymwear collection.

OYSHO FW14 Gymwear Collection:

Interplanetary topographic maps and the constellations are the starting point for the key prints featured in Oysho’s new gym campaign for the fall-winter season. This collection stands out for its 100% reflective garments, combined with cutting-edge innovation in fabrics, forms and qualities both in the brand’s new and basic items. Even those must-have sweatshirts have evolved for the new fall season, with new styles, new pocket positions and monochromatic contrasts…this is evolution in its purest form.

Oysho is on the move, swiftly positioning itself with a ground-breaking collection that takes the brand’s sports concept several steps forward.
