YogiStoned is a yoga inspired apparel brand that gives back yoga to those in need, with every purchase.
Yoga is for everyone and YogiStoned hopes to inspire more yoga, and more love in the world. The meaning behind the name YogiStoned is really pretty simple, and scientific. Just a few deep and slow breaths can calm your mind and body. A 15 minute yoga practice can boost your mood and bring you into a more focused state of mind. It can also relax you and help you sleep better. There are many ways to practice yoga and all kinds of benefits to practicing. Yoga helps each on of us to reconnect to that more balanced, peaceful and loving part of our self.
I have been teaching yoga for about 10 years and practicing for over 15 years. I’m also a writer and have been in advertising for over 30 years. Yoga was a way for me to free myself from the daily stresses of work and life, but it also helped relieve anxiety that I have struggled on and off with for nearly my whole life. Prior to a regular yoga practice, I experienced a series of panic attacks, and other challenging side effects from anxiety. Yoga and meditation became a way for me to work through some of the root causes of my anxieties. My passion for yoga and creative writing in a way, "united" and became YogiStoned, a way back to a more balanced, peaceful and loving self.
I hope yoga helps do the same for you.
See you on the mat!
