Yoga Plus advocates for women of all ages to Love Yourself

Targeted primarily towards working women and mothers, the key message Yoga Plus wants to impart is to “Love Yourself,” to make time for yourself in a busy schedule. In keeping with this theme, the launch saw the club turned into a green heaven, a calming oasis in the midst of a chaotic city.

As a way to “Love Yourself,” guests at the launch had the chance to visit the Wishing Tree, where they wrote a letter to themselves expressing what they loved and how they would do so from now on. Letters could be named or anonymous and, once finished, were tied to the tree as a promise for the future.
