Earlier this month, we hit Toronto’s new drop-in meditation studio, The Quiet Company, for ‘Flow with Intention,’ a mindfulness-filled affair to celebrate the launch of two new organic flavours from Flow Alkaline Spring Water.

Just in time for the sweltering summer heat wave, the refreshing new strawberry + rose and watermelon + lime have joined the ever-growing Flow Water brand, adding to the existing family of lemon + ginger and cucumber + mint.

The flavour line has the same alkaline benefits of original Flow, including hydration (naturally), a high mineral content, and a faster post-workout recovery, but with the added bonus of organic essences of the fruits and vegetables. The water has zero calories, zero juice, and zero sugar – making for zero reasons not to try it.

Flow is most recognized by its signature eco-friendly tetra pack, packaged in the company’s massive plant in Aurora, which opened its doors last year. The source of the water is a family-owned artesian spring in Bruce County, Ontario.

Inside the bright and welcoming new urban sanctuary that is The Quiet Company – conveniently located in the always bustling King West tech and advertising hub – guests were invited to sample the flavours before taking part in a toning/stretching session lead by Marlie Cohen of Kale and Krunches, followed by a short meditation session and sound bath lead by Emily Thring, founder of The Quiet Company. In a city of constant stimulation, taking it down a notch to quiet your ever-moving mind isn’t an easy task for some (i.e. me), but the help of a guided class in a safe space made it a little easier to at least try (it’s all about practice, right?).

While the new space marks The Quiet Company’s first physical location, Thring – a former 9-5 grinder herself – has offered meditation classes as a rotating pop-up concept for over a year. Classes at The Quiet Company range from 15-minutes to one hour, with a class schedule designed with the typical workday in mind.

Post-session, Flow With Intention guests were invited to refuel with an assortment of goodness-packed bowls from Toronto-based Bio Raw. The company offers free home and office delivery in the GTA to help your clean eating cause.

Not only did the event offer a chance to calm the mind and reconnect, guests left refreshed, armed with the new Flow flavours.

Thanks to Flow for sponsoring this great experience.
