  // OPEN TO LOVE //

Wild Thing with the hand positioned on Anahata (the Heart Chakra) is a beautiful and deep backbend which encourages the healing and expansion of the heart energy.

Through this expression we start to break up old physical and energetic layers or shields that we have put around our hearts to protect us from the events of our life’s that have wounded us. As we open the heart physically we also open up and heal energetically; allowing for more love to flow through us to others and to receive love more abundantly from others.

MOMENTUM // Styles to Move You

Recently Updated10-001

Rolling thru 2015 with a bold word: Momentum.

As Newton says, An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.

Whether training for that half-marathon, or jumping into a yoga or barre challenge, these pieces can carry you from cross training in the spin room to your detoxifying flow class.

Style Editor, Courtney Benattar, a certified Spin Instructor in Los Angeles, shares her favorite pieces to bring a little personality to your workout momentum.

1. FitBit — The FitBit Flex is a tech-trend that will only see a boost in 2015 –becoming an all around the clock Personal Trainer for $99. Recording calories burned, and mileage trekked, it also monitors sleep and provides insightful feedback for overall better living and wellness.

2. Nike is nailing it with this crossover zip jacket for to and fro activity.

3. For a little matchy punch with our funky #5s — of course they’re RayBans.

4. Who can pass these shoes up? And check out the heather grey while you are at it.

5. These track leggings from Onzie are rock star worthy for your entire day.

6. Life needs to be more — like play, so wear this to remind you.

7. Get your ladies in full position to let your body move, this was selected for high impact.

8. Bring on the Sandman and rock out hard with this tee.

9. Lipgloss, because — why not? Shown in kissyfit.

 

YOGA FOCUS // January

 // RENEWAL //

To bring a deeper sense of focus to the New Year and an ultimate sense of renewal I benefit mostly from sitting in meditation each morning before I start my day.
It doesn’t need to be 2 hours of meditative practice to make a difference on your overall outlook, perspective, and mindfulness.
Set aside atleast 10 minutes in the morning as a ritual to center your thoughts, focus on your breath, and allow a mantra to find you.
