One Tribe Apparel Review

Affordable and versatile these pants are available in five different styles, and in an array of colors and patterns. Everyone can find the perfect pant for them from One Tribe Apparel. To top it all off, they’re hand sewn. We got our paws on a few pairs and haven’t stopped wearing them since. Lightweight breathable fabric dyed in vibrant shades, overlaid with beautiful patterns, these pants allow you to jump, run and play, or lounge in complete comfort while feeling awesome. Practice yoga in them, take a yogic nap in them, do whatever you feel like in them - because in pants this awesome, you can.

Cory Vines Review

Cory Vines produces small collections of simply designed clothing that fits, flatters and moves with your body. Combine all of this with their small production runs, and you get the best quality of active wear, at the most affordable prices. Because Cory Vines goes above and beyond to cut out all of the steps that can drive up the price of clothing, they are able to utilize quality fabrics that hold up to the wear and tear that need them to. They are able to focus on the best shapes and construction methods that fit our different body types and sizes, hugging them as we move. Their style is classic and allows their clothing to transcend categories and constructs that hem in other clothing. Whether you're going out to lunch, dashing to work, running, hiking, backpacking, biking, walking, going to a barre, Pilates or kick boxing class - you'll look good, feel great and have the funds to pay for the class.

Mike Yoga Wear Review

Fun, Funky and Functional - this is what we look for in new yoga clothing here at Black Dog Asana...well that...and a whole laundry list of other criteria. You won’t catch us in just any yoga threads. It is tough to measure up to our standards, but there are amazing yoga companies making products that that do. We’re not being snobby, we’re just making sure that yogis are getting the most out of every ethically made product that they buy! We are very excited to tell you about an exciting company that is constantly coming up with new styles that make you look as good as you feel both on and off the yoga mat. These clothes are so awesome that we keep finding reasons to ignore the whole #nostretchypants challenge and wear these guys all of the time. Why you ask? Because we can! Mika Yoga Wear is fun and functional yoga clothing that easily holds up, no matter what we might put it through.

We’re All Turned Inside Out

It’s time that we adjusted our perspective.

Yesterday I was writing a blog post for my other website GypsyWonders and I started thinking about our perspective. We were prepping for backpacking and I saw a post discussing the different ways to “look cute” in the woods.  That got me thinking – well, isn’t that backwards?  Before you go to one of the most beautiful places that you’ve ever been, you’re thinking about what you’re going to look like? We’ve got a problem that the eight limbs of Ashtanga has a cure for – a miss-allocation of our perspective.  Let me elaborate a bit…

So Blessed.

But I had to take a step back to find out just how great life can be.

After making the difficult decision to go on a break from blogging and focus on myself for a bit (I couldn’t help feeling selfish, but knew that I was risking my health and happiness, loosing focus on just how blessed I am, by spreading myself too thin), incredible things happened. I was able to find a new, much more positive day job working with great people. I found love. No really, I found a man who loves me, who puts me first, who shares the same passions and is positive and caring. Ladies, they are out there – this is a different post for a different day though.
