Apart from that, a fashion show was held to display yoga outfits by Yogaonethatiwant, Adidas, Ash Be Nimble, Lululemon and others. The garments were up for sale at The Lil Hippie Shop, a cosy retail corner located at all three YOTIW studios. Guests helped themselves to healthy snacks which included, charcoal noodles and air-fried banana wantons. To end the event with a bang, TV personality Daphne Iking and rap star Arabyrd played deejays, keeping the audience on the dance floor with their retro and club hits.
Atilia says ‘It was an awesome launch. So much love so much support, so much sincerity. I danced like there was no tomorrow and I taught with my bunny ears. I could have not asked for more’.
