Summer Round-Up

As the Summer  finally draws to a close, it's time to reflect on how ELBOW COLLECTIVE have spent the past few months. Keeping busy as always, different projects and explorations have taken the collective all over the world. Here are some highlights: 


JUNE

CAMPAIGN: #whydoipractice, ELBOW COLLECTIVE, Instagram
To mark International Yoga Day on June 21st, ELBOW COLLECTIVE launched a week-long campaign on Instagram to encourage participants to consider 'why do I practice?'. There were many great responses, creating a fun way to connect yogis and friends from across the globe. Here are a few:

 

JUNE/JULY

FESTIVAL: NoName, Ovifat, Belgium
With the site perched high atop a ski resort, stunning views of the valley below teamed with remarkable decor created an enchanted atmosphere for NoName. With rhythms ranging from reggae, drum & bass and techno, a small but friendly crowd weaved and danced their way through trees, tents and blueberry bushes. Spirits remained high despite the occasional downpour. Grace and Sally were workshop leaders for Yoga and Partner Relaxation. You can check out Grace in the after-movie, filmed and edited by Laïkeu Fool.

 

AUGUST

FOOD: The Pitney Farm Café, Somerset, UK
After months of hard work, the Pitney Farm Café finally opened its doors this August. Ran by the inspiring Lily Farmer, the café is committed to freshness and quality, offering home cooked organic produce. They also offer workshops, creating an opportunity for people to reconnect with where their food comes from. Take a peek at their Crowd-Funding video to find out more about the foundations of the project.

SEPTEMBER

MUSIC: Sundowners Collective, Birgit & Bier, Berlin
Sundowners Collective created a stunning one-day music event at Berlin's open-air Birgit & Bier just as the European Summer was coming to close. Packed with great DJs from around the world, it oozed a sparkling energy. 
Last January marked the launch of the first Sundowner event in Goa, set up in honour of the late JoJo-former owner of Sundowner bar where the party was held. This Berlin date was a precursor to the follow-up South Goa date scheduled for January 2018. See how many members of ELBOW COLLECTIVE you can spot in their video.
