Winter Wellness: Balance & Samtosa

Bulgaria's Rhodopi Mountains in winter mist

Tomorrow is the first day of the annual Yoga Journal Conference in San Francisco, and while I am warm and content here in Eastern Europe, I am also fantasizing about a heat-generating, yoga intensive in my favorite U.S. city. When at home in NYC, I tend to practice at Exhale Spa in Manhattan, which is also where I learned about the fabulous new yoga collection, Samtosa Clothing.

'Samtosa' means 'contentment' in Sanskrit, - an ideal state for an evolved inner-outer workout. Founders David Eber and Wayne Malen have made a genuine commitment to creating high-quality organic yoga attire with the most environmentally and socially conscious mission as the backbone to their company.

Samtosa Clothing aims to donate a portion of their profits each year to the International Organization for Adolescents (IOFA), a non-profit organization working in the United States and around the world to combat child exploitation, especially child trafficking and slavery.

For anyone who is in San Francisco this upcoming weekend, you will be able to meet Samtosa Clothing as an exhibitor at the Yoga Journal San Francisco Marketplace, which is FREE and open to the public. Visit both #128 and soak up the organic glow.
