Active Studios: The Refectory

On a serene morning in Norwich, we hosted an exclusive Yoga Event at The Refectory—a venue renowned for its historical charm and modern culinary delights.

Situated within the precincts of Norwich Cathedral, The Refectory Bakery and Cafe stands as a testament to timeless elegance and architectural grandeur. Its ambiance, a harmonious blend of the old and new, provided the ideal backdrop for a day dedicated to holistic wellness and fashion.

The event kicked off with a warm welcome from our team, who ensured that every participant felt comfortable and excited for the day ahead. The yoga session, led by a local instructor, offered a gentle yet invigorating flow that catered to both beginners and seasoned practitioners.

Participants were encouraged to be mindful of their bodies and movements, fostering a connection between their physical and mental well-being. The calming ambiance of The Refectory, combined with the expert guidance of the instructor, made for a truly rejuvenating experience.

Following the yoga session, attendees had the unique opportunity to explore our Yoga collection through an exclusive pop-up shop. This wasn’t just a shopping experience but an invitation to witness the seamless blend of fashion and functionality.

The collection features a range of athleisure wear that's not only stylish but also designed for comfort and performance. From sleek leggings and supportive sports bras to cozy hoodies, every piece reflected Blakely’s commitment to quality and contemporary design.

No visit to The Refectory would be complete without indulging in its delectable offerings. As part of the event, attendees were treated to a selection of healthy refreshments, including freshly baked goods, artisan coffees, and smoothies. The cafe's dedication to using locally sourced ingredients was evident in every bite, making the post-yoga brunch both nourishing and delicious.

Our Yoga Event at The Refectory was more than just a morning of yoga and shopping; it was a celebration of lifestyle and community. It highlighted the importance of balancing physical activity with mindful relaxation and showcased how fashion can play a pivotal role in enhancing this balance.

For the attendees, it was a chance to connect with like-minded individuals, indulge in self-care, and take home a piece of the experience through Blakely’s thoughtfully designed collection.
