Challenge with a twist

We are so excited to announce our first ever Instagram Challenge. We didn't want to do the standard 'ol yoga challenge so we are doing one with a twist. Our #EmbodiedIntention challenge is all about how certain words make you feel and what that looks like to you.

From September 15th until September 30th, we will post the "word of the day" on our Instagram feed and, should you wish to play along, you post what that word means to you visually. In order to be entered into the contest portion of the challenge simply do the following:

2.) Tag @yogotv and @neulotus in your post
3.) Use the hashtag in your description #yogotv

These are the only daily requirements for the 15 days of the challenge and get you entered for a chance to win a yogo subscription and a NEUlotus yoga prop! YAY!

Looking forward to embodying yoga with you via Instagram. 

Love the team

Shop local - support Canada (read to the bottom for something special)

We're proud to be a Canadian company. A company that supports Canadian yoga teachers and studios. Every time you watch a video you support that teacher and studio, as they receive royalties from your viewing. So from all of us at, THANK YOU for buying local and supporting the Canadian yoga industry. 

We're also excited to support other great Canadian companies doing interesting things. In the past we've mentioned BMat an incredible natural rubber Canadian yoga mat company. Along with Mala Collective a fair trade Mala and clothing company. Remember Heart & Lotus the local BC woman making beautiful unique jewelry? Well we have another Canadian company we want to spotlight. 

So to properly introduce you to this wonderful Canadian company we did an interview with Peter from the VANCITY BOX, here in Vancouver, B.C..

1. Tell us about your company: We are a subscription box company that features locally-made crafts and goods, created by small businesses in Vancouver. It is a way to promote our community's businesses, discover hidden treasures in our city, and encourage people to shop locally. Plus, who doesn't love receiving gifts every month?

2. How do you stay inspired in your business? I'd say I get inspired the most by the small businesses I work with. Talking to them and seeing their passion really drives me to be just as passionate as they are. One thing I've noticed in Vancouver's start-up community is that we all love helping each other out and you never know what you can learn from someone until you sit down with them and get to know each other.

3. Tell us a typical day in your shoes? Everyday is different. Some days I'm pitching proposals to companies, some days I'm building boxes, and other days I'll just decide to take a nap! You need to rest your mind and body once in awhile so you don't burnout!

4. How do you rejuvenate when life gets busy? Hide my phone and go for a walk. Fresh air helps me think and not having my phone disconnects me from all the things I have to do, temporarily! 

5. Do you have any daily rituals or mantra's that serve you? My personal mantra is pretty generic, cheesy, and maybe even lame but it definitely works for me... Never give up! There are going to be a lot of bad days but there are also going to be a lot of good days. As long as you keep working at it, it'll all be worth it.

6. How do you find balance in your life both personally and in business? Finding balance is about dedicating certain days to specific tasks and ignoring everything else. If I am having a personal day, I'll try my best to avoid reading my emails, although it is very tempting.

7. Tell us of a personal or business struggle that lead to personal growth or empowerment? I've always struggled to talk to people but after starting my own business, I was forced to step outside my comfort zone and now pitching and talking to people is no problem at all! YEAH!

Thank you Peter for taking the time to talk with us and for helping people see the value in supporting Canadian businesses.

Pilates anyone?

Happy New Year! Hope you're as excited about 2016 as we are. We mainly look forward to encouraging you to get to your mat, move your body and take care of yourself. With this in mind, did you know we have Pilates classes on Have you ever tried Pilates? Here's some reasons why you should try Pilates from one of our skillful teachers, Chrissy Ramstead;

Joseph Pilates invented a series of exercises that lengthen and lean the body. He was a sickly child with asthma, rickets, and rheumatic fever who believed that improving core strength, breathe and posture, while decreasing stress, was the key to health. His theory worked, because by the age of 14 he was fit enough to pose for anatomical charts and lived a strong influential life until he was 83.

Pilates leads to greater core strength, improved posture, and a leaner body. Practicing regularly strengthens the immune system and lowers cortisol levels and stress, which also translates into weight management benefits.

With less stress and better health everything from picking up your children, sitting at your desk all day, to climbing a mountain becomes easier when you do Pilates regularly.With an improved sense of well being and increased quality of life one can’t help but feel more confident and hopefully even joyful.

I practice Pilates every morning first thing because it sets me up for success every day. The results I’ve experienced have been transformational. Now I challenge you to try it this year.

Here's to You,
