Homebodii was so excited to hold their first workshop with the Pyjama Foundation on Thursday the 12th of July. The workshop was created in partnership with the Pyjama Foundation and is a day of positivity, guest speakers, and inspirational sessions. The workshop was designed for girls between the ages of 13-16 who are in foster care, to motivate, inspire, and educate them. Homebodii is thankful to have been supported by some wonderful women who were guest speakers on the day including our founder Ingrid Bonnor, MC and former television presenter Natalie Gruzlewski, X-tend Barre owner Stacey Chew, event organiser Amanda Turner, fitness guru Sophie Guidolin, make-up artist Fallon, and artist Sian Ballantine.
