Satya’s Favorite Yogi’s

The month of September heralds a shift in consciousness; not only does it signal a change of seasons, but for many of us, it’s a call to action: time to buckle down, get back to school, and instill a sense of order that we shrugged off during summer’s languid days. Luckily, September is also Yoga Month, a celebration of yogic practices that reminds us to slow down, breathe deeply and be present as the world demands we jump back in and propel ourselves forward.

This September, we’re celebrating Yoga Month by highlighting some of our favorite yogis. From being luminous spirits to incredible teachers, this group of women not only share our passion for practicing yoga, but are improving the world around them, one breath at a time. Get to know our favorite yogis, and get inspired for Yoga Month!

How To: Layer Your Altar

November_ Blog_layers

“When I think of my jewelry, I think of it as an extension of who I am.  Each piece has a story and represents a time and place where I am in my life. The pieces I choose to wear each day differ depending on how I am feeling but I always follow a couple of simple rules for layering my altar…

1. Heart Center:

When layering on my jewelry, I always start with the pieces closest to my heart which is usually my Om and Zodiac necklaces on 18 inch chains.

2. Layer On Strength: 

My 18 inch chain is followed by a 24 or 32 inch chain that hangs at my Solar Plexus Chakra. The solar plexus is the core of your self where your will, power, and assertiveness originate so that’s where I love wear a symbol of strength or wisdom like a Mandala or a Hamsa.

3. Meditative Mala:

I always finish with a gemstone mala that I have usually made myself. An authentic gemstone mala that’s infused with my own intention works to ground and remind me that I can always find inner piece when I turn within.

4. Arm Yourself: 

Last but not least, my wrists are always filled with bracelets of healing gemstones and symbols which all have their own meanings. Rather than select my stack based on color,  I allow my intuition to guide me to exactly what I need.
