Yoga Journal Conference - Fun times, fun pix!


We saw so many of you at the Yoga Journal Conference – what a blast! It was great to reconnect with old friends and meet many new ones. A huge shout-out to our beyond-awesome booth neighbors, Our Love Yoga and Blue Osa – in a perfect world, I would buy a week’s worth of Our Love clothing, pack it in a suitcase and fly immediately to Blue Osa’s gorgeous eco retreat in Costa Rica. Check out a few of our snap-worthy moments from the show – feel free to send us one of yours!

Showtime: alignyo preps for Yoga Journal Conference


We are super-excited about being exhibitors at the preeminent Yoga Journal Conference, in New York City from May 12 through May 16. We have two simple conference goals: 1) Meet as many of you yoga nuts as possible; and 2) Deliver the most fun you’ve ever had in a 10’ x 8’ tradeshow booth (unless you did something naughty at the International Auto Show?!).
