yoga for men, health from the inside out

Marteen Zárate is a well-known yoga teacher from Mexico. He shares with us the many benefits in practising yoga for men. Even if the largest part of the yoga community is feminine (70%), the number of men practising yoga has been multiplying, going from 4 million in 2012 to 10 million in 2016. This is interesting when traditionally the practice of yoga was only for men! These days, I dedicate all my time to practicing yoga and teaching and training teachers to the ancient techniques of yoga, thus sharing my 14 years of practice. When I started yoga, I still had my managerial job in technologies & human resources. Stress, speed and competitiveness were part of each day. Yoga came and changed my life for real – in a positive way! For this reason, I want to share with you the first 5 benefits I noted in my first months of yoga. Advertisements

Plastic is one material the planet can’t digest. There are different types of plastics, some can take more than 1000 years to disintegrate. Our over-reliance on plastic has had huge consequences for the health of our environment and especially our oceans…

sharing the love of natural with my mum

When I was a young girl, I loved watching my mum do her daily beauty routine. Even back then she used natural ingredients to look after her skin. She slept with aloe vera on her face, exfoliated with sugar and honey and only used natural creams to moisturise. I think that’s when I started to love healthy skin! My mother was a nurse, but definitely an alternative one! She is passionate about natural health and she has always relied on homemade remedies. One of the traditions we still share together is to make and apply our natural homemade mask. This Mother’s Day, I’m happy to share our favourite recipe, it’s very easy!

my journey into ethical fashion

Besma Whayeb is an ethical lifestyle blogger and freelance writer. Her blog, Curiously Conscious, has become a hub for a new generation of conscious consumers, focusing on natural and organic beauty, ethical fashion and homewares, healthy food, wellness and eco travel. “My change to living an ethical lifestyle came about after experiencing culture shock in Paris. I’d moved to Paris as part of my degree and had fallen in love with the culture; I love the way Parisians do things – simple, understated, elegant. I felt like my cheap t-shirts weren’t quite up to scratch, and I’d already turned vegetarian, was eating lots of organic food, so I decided to apply the same inquisitive eye to my clothes.

green everyday

Chantal Chalita is an environmental engineer who found a way to do something good for the world, uniting her marketing skills with her passion for the environment in the “GREEN ME” Blog. She encourages people to live a greener and sustainable lifestyle through small changes in their daily life. She does it in a very characteristic and attractive way that makes it completely different from any other blogs. “That’s why I try to give you practical tips to be a little more environmental without changing your lifestyle, because I’ve realized that being an extremist does not lead to a lasting change. The first and most important thing is to become conscious, and by this I mean to know what am I doing? and why am I doing it?
