The intention behind all Yoga Girl® business partnerships and collaborations is to enact positive change in the business world.
When we received the opportunity to partner with Amazon, we had two important questions:
Does our Yoga Girl® community like shopping on Amazon?
Can all commissions from the partnership be donated?
I took a poll on Instagram, and it turns out that an overwhelming 86% of you shop on Amazon!
Then we got our confirmation:
ALL the commissions generated from this collaboration are donated to the Yoga Girl® Foundation, which then generates good things for people in need.
This led us to a beautiful co-creation with Amazon and their brand new initiative, Amazon Yoga Life! I am honored to be the face of this launch, and I’m so excited to contribute to an impactful corner of this massive, global online store.
For the Amazon Yoga Life initiative, we teamed up to showcase a sample of all my favorite things, like:
Books on yoga and life that I return to again and again
Clothes for on or off your yoga mat
Sacred items I always have nearby: crystals, palo santo and essential oils
Here it is: a second round of #MeToo – stories of sexual harassment and abuse from the yoga world. We have received hundreds of stories. This is a selection from people who have given their consent to have these shared – women and men who want their stories to be heard.
Curing The Instant Gratification Hangover — Committing to Less and Being More
I find myself moving away from instant reflexes. Meaning, instantly responding to phone calls, messages, texts, and anything that grips or pulls me into an immediate response. It’s been 2.5 years since I’ve turned all notifications off on my phone.
