"When the mind fluctuates that's when you find yourself worrying, doubting and lost in the sauce but when the mind is still that's when you create your greatest ideas." -Russell Simmons
In celebration of the launch of LOVE GOODLY's June/July box, we were invited to enjoy a special evening of yoga and meditation with Russell Simmons, the founder of Tantri Yoga. Tantris is a yoga lifestyle brand that weaves together ancient practice, modern style and innovative technology. The Tantris Center for Yogic Science offers hot yoga practice, workshops, teacher training, events and more. Basically, the Tantris Center is a yoga palace, it truly is all encompassing. We had the opportunity to speak with Katie and Justine, founders of LOVE GOODLY.
LOVE GOODLY is a subscription wellness box that helps you discover cruelty free beauty brands, healthy snacks and wellness items. Did you know that the average woman uses 168 chemicals in her personal care every day and up to 60% of what we put on our skin gets absorbed into our bloodstream? As moms, Katie and Justine, sought to create LOVE GOODLY to help others discover healthy brands while supporting fair trade and caring for the planet. The June/July box featured items from Kat Von D, New Chapter Inc, Faby Australia, Shop Gemtye and Fred and Far with the box benefitting Farm Sanctuary, a non-profit dedicated to rescue, education and advocate for farm animals. We loved our box, which also included Russell Simmons best-selling book, Success Through Stillness.
Guests were treated with cold press juices from Suja Juice. During meditation, Russell spoke about the importance of going beyond the physical and learning the power of the mind. "When the mind fluctuates that's when you lost in the sauce, but it's in this stillness in the quiet of your mind that you find your best ideas." When was the last time you took the moment to set intention with your action? Learn to pay attention to the details and live in the moment. The 60-minute hot yoga session was sprinkled with Hip-Hop, it was truly an amazing experience and I'll definitely be coming back! Thank you Love Goodly, Tantris Yoga and Russell for the invite!
