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.

Healthy Pina Colada protein shake

General by Liz Eustace

Our friends over at Vega have a healthy protein shake that tastes delicious! It's the Pina Colada Protein Shake.

This simple and easy to make shake is Vega’s healthy take on a classic cocktail, the piña colada, and it tastes like spring in a glass - fresh and sweet with amazing nutritional value. We love to have a green smoothie for breakfast or mid-day to keep us going and this one is AMAZING. 25g of plant-based protein and takes only 5 minutes to make!

Healthy St. Patrick's Day Green Smoothie

General by Liz Eustace

Ditch the sugary shamrock shake and make your own St. Patrick's Day green smoothie with clover sprouts. This smoothie is light enough to enjoy before yoga class but tasty enough to still feel like you're celebrating. 

While they may not look as festive as shamrocks, clover sprouts are rich in protein, fiber, and Vitamins A, B, C, and K. You may not be used to putting them in your green smoothies, but with the sweet flavor of the fruit in this recipe, you'll hardly taste the sprouts.

General by Liz Eustace

According to Page Six / NYPost, "former Victoria’s Secret model-turned-hot-yogi #Angela Lindvall will lead the first-ever yoga session on Madison Square Garden’s court Monday". 

Other beautiful people in the crowd will include model Heide Lindgren, former “Real Housewife” Kelly Bensimon and “Rich Kids of Beverly Hills” star Morgan Stewart. The giant yoga gathering is part of an MSG wellness and charity event called Impact Garden. We’d suggest that the hapless Knicks attend, too, to get in a positive frame of mind.
