BE THE CHANGE

Find freedom in your movement, feel connection with the universe and live with intention: welcome to our special report on ethical yoga wear

No one ever regrets taking a yoga class. It’s the right thing to do. But the way yoga can permeate seemingly every aspect of your life takes many people by surprise.

Yoga’s subtle magic impacts body, mind and soul, raising energy and awareness, and transforming the individual into a powerful agent of change in this world of ours.

Making the right choices becomes a part of the journey, from the commitment to a daily practice or a nourishing diet, to the words we use in our everyday conversations.

It also relates to our individual purchasing decisions that can collectively impact the direction of an entire economy.

That’s especially important in an environmentally-conscious age, where our buying choices can make all the difference in the direction of our planet’s future.

While it’s possible to pick up mass-produced mats or clothing on the cheap, this may not have good consequences long-term, not just in terms of environmental impact, but also the more you grow as a yogi and as a human. An enlightened soul wants to be surrounded by purity, clarity and serenity not plastic and clutter.

If you are a conscious consumer, it’s worth taking a little effort to make the right choices when it comes to what you wear, both on and off the mat, even if that means investing a little extra. The payback can be huge. You’ll be supporting small, ethical businesses, driven by their own passion for yoga, plus you’ll be wearing clothing that aligns with your principles. Not only that, your environmental conscience will be clean.

Find freedom in your movement, feel connection with the universe around you, and live the best intentions as your yoga journey unfolds.
