What I learned on Earth Day

General by Liz Eustace

I stumbled onto this brand at the Toronto Yoga Show and have fallen head over heels with their commitment to sustainability and their ingenuity in making 'stuff' simple. From a lineage of craftsmanship, to a love of surfing, into the exploration of yoga, to a passion for Mother Earth this family-run company is a game-changer.  With Chris Willey leading the charge, they've developed the world's first yoga mat to embrace a natural cork surface. It has a non-slip surface and contains zero harmful chemicals. No more PVC mats.

Her creation is the Power of 3 and it combines seeds that are whole foods, gluten free, organic and are naturally fortifying because they contain omega 3s, protein and fibre.

A guide to yoga conferences

Conferences by Liz Eustace

A guide to yoga conferences:

I've been in yoga-biz for close to two-decades. I've attended yoga conferences all over North America and when I do, I’m a solo warrior. I set out with the mindset to talk to vendors, connect with teachers and make 'show' friends. A 'show' friend is where you share your transformations and observations over a bowl of quinoa but most likely, will never see them again.
