If a giant sea turtle (Honu) was responsible for dressing you in the morning what sort of clothes might he or she pick out? Before you answer with “wetsuit” or “flippers” consider that these giant peaceful creatures are an endangered species.
Nicole Sherman is a Hawaii native. She grew up swimming with the dolphins and giant sea turtles. Out of her deep affinity for these majestic creatures sprung her passion to create a line of clothing to benefit and honor the majestic sea turtle. Honu Yoga Design was born!
When you get dressed in your stylish new Honu Yoga gear you can feel great knowing that a percentage of all proceeds go directly to www.kurmalliance.com an amazing charity helping to save our beautiful sea turtles from extinction.
Nicole Sherman is no stranger to difficulties of her own. Her love for yoga began as a way to understand and heal her scoliosis. Now Nicole shares the transformative benefits of yoga teaching locally both to groups and private clients.
Above are a just a few of the fun T-shirts and Tanks from Honu Yoga Designs. My red “I Love Handstands” Tank never fails to start interesting conversations with perfect strangers wherever I go.
When you consider all the different messages people send off via the text on their shirts I consider wearing these shirts as a way of spreading the yoga gospel. Why not send out a positive message while rockin’ some threads that directly benefit some of nature’s most vulnerable creatures?
Well, that’s because I copied Transformers (Rise of the Machines) forgive me,..but I had to get your attention…
Onward and upward to the point of this post then…
Well, before I get blasted for saying “rise of the cool yogi” what I mean by that is, when I was first getting involved in yoga I had a fear that fitting in with my fellow yogis meant wearing patchouli oil, not drinking my favorite wine and speaking barely above a whisper…(and a breathy one at that!)
In fact, I think this video is really proof of the fact that yogis are quite stylin’ these days! (and by stylin’ I mean we are setting trends and taking names, but don’t let it go to your head yogis…remember? No ego!)
You know the day you are going to meet your friends at the beach but you just got your your period and your itsy bitsy bikini feels 2 sizes to small? Spanx to the rescue!
Spanx is a company that puts out wonderful body shaping undergarments and they now make swimwear as well!
Look at these cute suits!
Obviously, you should always feel great about yourself whether you fit into your bikini or not, but hopefully that goes without saying! Yoga practice helps us dissolve our insecurities about our bodies so we can really fully appreciate and celebrate them!
I feel that any item of clothing that aids in that celebration is healthy and fun! I want to be 100% clear here that its not about fixing “problems” or “flaws” because these products are more about supporting and enhancing your natrual god given beauty!
Well, I am off to do some celebrating right now on my yoga mat at my mentors class. 🙂 Namaste!
