BaliniSports is Committed Their Entire Supply Chain to Meet Bluesign® Standard

Yoga wear brands like PrAna, Adidas, and BaliniSports have now committed their entire supply chain to meet bluesign® standard, while already one third of Lululemon Athletica fabric mills are bluesign® system partners.

This in turn brings together the entire textile manufacturing chain to jointly reduce the ecological footprint of a responsibly acting textile industry.

PrAna’s partnership with bluesign® began in March 2012 with inclusion of a single certified facility and they have since required their entire supply chain to follow the bluesign® system substance list. Luluemon became a bluesign® system partner soon after in November 2012 and now ensures that the fabrics used in their products meet the system’s standards. BaliniSports follows and only work with bluesign® certified facilities since inception of the brand in 2013. All of BaliniSports products are manufactured, from start to finish, in bluesign® certified manufacturing facilities.

The bluesign® system is based on five principles: resource productivity, consumer safety, water emission, air emission and occupational health & safety. This basically means that every aspect of the manufacturing process — what comes into the plants, leaves the plants, happens in the plant and what stays with the fabric — is taken into account and held to rigorous standard.

Bluesign yoga apparel also brought attention to Hollywood celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner. As a consumer, you can feel good purchasing Bluesign certified products knowing that you’re giving yourself and the world the best opportunity to thrive.

Qualities of Great Yoga Teachers: Find an Instructor & Class that Inspires You

Qualities of Great Yoga Teachers:  Find an Instructor & Class that Inspires You

With yoga becoming increasingly popular there are more varieties of styles, studios and teachers than ever before! To someone who is new to yoga, it can be difficult to find a class that’s just right for you. Yoga is for everyone, it’s simply a matter of finding those styles and teachers that resonate with you and will inspire you to thrive. Here are a few components to look for in a yoga instructor or a specific class or style.

Knowledge Educated teachers will provide a concise, general shape of the pose, while also providing tips in the form of clear if-then statements. For example, “If your shoulders hunch, try pushing your shoulder blades back and down” Detailed descriptions of proper form will also be offered with more educated teachers. For example, “Before stepping back into down dog, frame your foot with your hands.” An aware teacher will also offer modifications, variations, even offer props or more accessible steps to help you ease into difficult poses. Most importantly an educated yoga instructor will offer insight and tips for students to progress and find results without pain or injury.

 

Compassion Yoga should be fun and positive. If it becomes too rigid and focused, it will feel like a job and eventually you will get tired of it. It’s important to remember that every day is different. A good yoga teacher will demand that you try your best in an encouraging way that’s not aggressive or demeaning. If you have questions, a teacher should make themselves available, either before or after class.

 

Motivation Yoga is most beneficial when you’re physical and mental limits are challenged, but without crossing the line. A teacher who helps you ride against that threshold intelligently but fearlessly is gold. That type of class will keep you advancing effortlessly and coming back time and time again.

 

Inspiration A great yoga class leaves you feeling uplifted, cleansed and fully alive. I enjoy yoga the most when I’ve taken time to set a meaningful intention for the class like strength, grace, commitment, or patience.  The technical components of yoga are necessary; however, if you don’t feel more aware and vibrant afterward, you’re not getting the full experience. Yoga uniquely connects body with mind, and with the right teaching, it inspires real-life changes.

 

Honesty Although the stereotypical yoga voice can be relaxing and enjoyable, an authentic teacher should be themselves completely and often solace can be found with a more genuine tone. This means using less yoga jargon and more everyday language to connect with students. A teacher who is authentic let’s his or her unique personality shine and can thus relate with students. A good teacher will be honest with you; they are confident enough to tell you when you are doing something incorrect or misaligned, but at the same time, good yoga teachers are humble. They don’t pretend to be perfect.

 

Consistency There should be consistency in a yoga class. When an instructor shows up prepared and confident to teach, there is a logical yet progressive sequence throughout class. There should be at least 10-15 minutes of familiar poses every class; it’s a good way to gain an understanding of the fundamental positions while noticing progress. The prerequisites for attempting more advanced poses in class is preparing for basic poses.

 

Empowerment Your progress should be celebrated! Yoga should make you feel good about being yourself and accepting all your imperfections. A common misconception with yoga is that it’s always calm and peaceful. Yoga is meant to bring up real emotions, emotions that you actually face in life. For yoga to be most beneficial, it will not only invoke feelings of bliss, but also frustration or confrontation. Yoga should teach you to navigate through thick and thin. A strong teacher will guide you, yet will allow you to do it yourself.

 

Value Most importantly, the class has to work for you. The poses are fun and playful, but it only matters if the practice inspires you to do the things you enjoy most in life. If it’s not helping you live life to the fullest, then what’s the point?

5 Benefits of Hot Yoga

Hot Yoga

Five Benefits of Hot Yoga

It’s no secret that Hot Yoga is popular. Celebrities, athletes, even busy moms are flocking to studios. Hot yoga is designed for everyone, truly anyone can do it. Unlike Bikram, hot yoga isn’t based on of the same 26-posture series. Instead, it tends to be more of a flowing vinyasa style practice, linking one pose to the next like a carefully choreographed dance. Here are 10 great benefits from a 90-minute beginner hot yoga class:

1. Flexibility:

First thing to remember: Yoga is not about how flexible you are, but about strengthening and your body and aligning your spine. However, increased flexibility is an evident benefit to practicing Bikram or hot yoga. The heat will allow you to safely reach new levels of flexibility, even in beginner’s postures. The heat will make your muscles more elastic, allowing you to fold and flex much deeper. IMG_1491

2. Strength:

Hot yoga is low impact and uses tiny muscles you didn’t know you had, building muscle tone.  Spine strength is a primary focus within hot yoga which is the key to a long healthy life! While physical strength is a great benefit, we often lose sight of the emotional strength gained from hot yoga. The practice is the true definition of mind over matter and the endorphin rush after completing a session will leave you feeling like there’s nothing you can’t do!

3. Breath:

If there is no breathing, there is no yoga. The definition of Hatha Yoga asana is: stillness in a posture while breathing normally. With the added element of the heat, you have to breathe deeply, yet controlled! This breath strengthens your heart and lungs, improving lung function. It won’t take long before you learn to breathe in a full and controlled manner and you’ll breathe easier and deeper than you ever have before. P1380760

4. Detox:

The yoga postures themselves are detoxifying for your muscles, organs, and glands, but sweating furthers the detoxification process. Many postures compress and work the thyroid, helping to regulate the gland and balance thyroid levels. The way you stretch and compress your internal organs and glands stimulates metabolism and increases your energy, so you feel better and burn more calories outside the room.

5. Healing:

The primary purpose of this yoga is therapy. With a regular practice, these postures can help to heal old injuries and also prevent them in the future. This is especially true for, but not limited to, back pain. Don’t skip the postures that are slightly uncomfortable. Many poses are designed to work the spine in every direction, creating a healthy spine and thus a healthy nervous system. Hot Yoga is also known to reduce symptoms of conditions and illnesses including diabetes, asthma, high blood pressure, depression, arthritis and obesity. Try a hot yoga class. You’ve got nothing to lose! As you advance, you gain tremendous focus and determination. The ability to focus carries over to your daily life. When you can focus on the task at hand, you’ll excel and you can enjoy life more. And of course, make sure you’re ready to take on the heat with BaliniSports yoga apparel! My personal favorite is the Fiona Yoga Jersey paired with the Angel Booty Shorts. The fabric is lightweight, breathable and moves with you allowing you to focus on reaping the amazing benefits of hot yoga.
