C9 Champion Yoga Event at Shutters on the Beach

Oh my gosh, what a great weekend to be an LA resident—and a fitness blogger! This morning I had the opportunity to attend a yoga event with celeb instructor Kristin McGee sponsored by Target’s athletic wear line, C9 Champion. The event was held at the gorgeous Santa Monica hotel, Shutters on the Beach (which was also a top contender for my wedding venue, until the east coast won out), and we were all sent C9 gear beforehand to wear!


Once I arrived and grabbed some coffee in the lobby, I headed down to the Promenade room to find bright yoga mats and equally bright workout gear. The morning started with a 45-minute class where Kristen led us through a series of sun salutations, warrior poses, and some mat Pilate’s moves. Afterwards, we were free to help ourselves to smoothies, granola, and exercise clothes (every girl’s DREAM). There were also masseuses available for 15 minute massages—perfect after a workout but before heading to actual work. Of course, my friend and I had to sneak away for pictures with some of my new gear by the beach!

Tomorrow I will be attending the Nike Women Los Angeles Tour in downtown LA to sweat with 2,000 STRONG ladies. Can’t wait to see some of you there!!!!
