Sometimes the best part of living in, or visiting, a city is just taking a walk around. The architecture, people, cafés and bars all combine to give a place it’s particular feeling or vibe, and street art has an especial effect on how we experience one city to another. Where skeptics see concrete blocks, street artists see blank canvasses; these guys breathe life into the dullest of corners. One guy who knows a lot about injecting colour into city walls is our resident street artist, illustrator and designer Joel Moore, or Mulga.
Sophie Palmer(@sophiepalmeryoga) is one of our resident yoga and meditation experts at Loqules. After a successful career in the corporate world, Sophie felt as though something was missing and made a significant life change to follow her passions to do what made her happy. She’s now using what she personally learnt through this experience to help others find balance and happiness in their lives through yoga and meditation. We caught up with Sophie to get some insight into her inspiring story.
We’ve been live in private beta for over a month now and on our second day we sold our very first experience. This story is about that experience from my (Jai Al-Attas, CEO & Co Founder) point of view.
We’re stoked that one of our very first experiences we’re offering Loqules is a collaboration between Vans BOWL-A-RAMA Bondi and professional skater & TV host Corbin Harris(@corbinharris). Originally from Sydney, Corbin currently resides in Los Angeles where he co-hosts the X Games alongside Tony Hawk and does a bunch of work for NBC too. However having him back in the country for BOWL-A-RAMA, we thought we’d get him involved in an experience that includes a private skate session with him and then VIP access to BOWL-A-RAMA that comes with all the bells and whistles. It’s a pretty rad experience!
So with Corbin back in his hometown and just over a week away until BOWL-A-RAMA, we thought we’d catch up with him and see what he misses the most about Sydney.
