Love letter no:2

From Ordu, Turkey   Thinking about sustainability,   We have had an inquiry in our mind lately.  We are talking about a sustainable life, sustainable designs, even FASHION.  So, isn't there a mistake somewhere when we explain "sustainability"?    Last week we talked about slowing down. We have mentioned the period we live in pushed us to be slow. Our creative processes slowed down. We are experiencing that we can reflect the insignificance of the seasons to our processes.

Feeling sad? Sit in Lotus. The truth is that the practice of yoga is not about changing the brain, body, headstands, or even about gaining greater happiness and joy.  Yoga offers self-reflection, the practice of kindness and self-compassion, and continued growth and self-awareness.  Yoga opens up the possibility of connecting to what we already have to who we already are.  It helps you to improve yourself. It helps you to train your brain to focus our attention and live in the present.  The practice teaches you to focus your mind on one thing at a time.  Start easy. You can...
