Did you know that BaliniSports yoga apparel in now made in the USA? The reason behind my decision to move production and exclusively offer USA-made yoga clothes is that I had a life-changing conversation with a marine biologist. As you know, I have been committed to using eco-friendly and sustainable production methods when creating our yoga apparel from day one. I also don't use toxic dyes or processes that waste thousands of gallons of water like most mainstream apparel brands. However, I was completely unaware that having my clothes shipped from a production facility in another country was potentially harming the planet. Did you know that your fashion choices can lead to death and misery for sea life around the globe? The marine biologist I spoke with shared some frightening details and statistics with me. I'd like to pass some of this information on to you so that you can be an informed customer. 

Shocking Facts Regarding Shipping and Sea Life:

  • Carbon dioxide emissions from shipping were equal to 2.2% of the global human-made emissions in the year 2012, and this is expected to double and triple in the years to come.
  • Whales and matinees are under constant threat of collision with ships, and they are about 80 percent likely to die from a collision.
  • Ships release toxic oils and chemicals as they travel through the water.
  • The unintentional transfer of invasive alien species through ballast water and on ship hulls can devastate small ecosystems near the sea.
  • Physical damage caused by the dropping of anchors and wave disturbances can affect marine mammals.
  • Oil spills caused from congested waterways have resulted in the deaths of thousands of sea otters, birds, fish, and other sea life.
  • Marine mammals, sea turtles, fish, and birds can be injured or killed after becoming entangled with plastics and other waste that ship crews may produce.

How Can We Help Reduce Damage Done to Sea Life by Ships?

I know it can seem overwhelming when there is so much at stake for our planet's sea life populations. While none of us can solve this problem alone, we can all take small steps toward making a difference. One of the things I am committed to is showing people how to shop environmentally friendly. I know that moving production of Balinisports yoga apparel to the USA will help to reduce the number of ships transferring goods out there in small, yet meaningful way.

How a Conversation With a Marine Biologist Convinced Me to Produce Yoga Clothes in the USA

5 Amazing Movies that Light Up Your Traveling Dream Right Away

 

Hi Yogis!

Where are you right now? Are you off for traveling or waiting for another leap-off from where you are now? We all know how that feels when waiting for a better timing to escape from the city and enjoy a little time and space just by ourselves. But who knows when is the best timing?

Check out these 5 amazing movies recommended by GoWonder (a community full of travel lovers who help, and empower women to travel the world with safety and support). Maybe they'll light up your traveling (or any other) dream and get you on the journey again! (These movies are randomly ordered.)



#1 - Eat, Pray, Love

A movie starring Julia Roberts. A movie about getting rid of the old patterns, seeking help from within, trying errors, breaking free from every current thing, and start the journey for seeking deeper in. Of course, eat and love are along the way too!

#2 - Wild

"I love the love 'wild' starring Reece Witherspoon. It's based on a true story of a young girl trying to complete the Pacific Crest Trail. Although it's not really her traveling as much it's a really inspirational movie which I felt helped motivated me to actually get out there and do what makes you happy. For me, that's traveling : ) " - Chelsea.

#3 - Into the Wild

Though this is a sad movie that can't cheer up any mind, but it's being mentioned by travelers again and again. "I nearly died watching it because I couldn't breathe because I was crying so hard." Julian said. Based on my experience, almost every travel addict loves this movie, and they all recommend this movie heavily.

#5 - "Long Way Around" and "Long Way Down": Travel documentaries on Netflix with Ewan McGregor in.

Yoga clothing and Athleisure wear are what's on every woman's wish list this holiday season. Many people are a little confused about the right way to shop for and give yoga clothing. This is understandable since yoga clothing is a bit different than other clothing types. Its fitted nature and performance-oriented design means that you have to put a little extra effort into shopping for high-quality pieces that fit well. Here are some essential rules to follow when giving yoga clothing as gifts:

  • Don't pick something just because it's the cheapest. Performance is important, so go for a brand that is well-made and actually designed for yoga (instead of just being "Athleisure" wear)
  • Go USA made if possible. BaliniSports is one of the only yoga apparel brands that offer products that are exclusively made in the USA. Why is this important? Yoga clothing from other brands could contain harmful dyes and chemicals, which can be bad when they make contact with the skin during sweaty yoga sessions.
  • Pick something lovely! Don't go for bland pieces, instead choose interesting, one-of-a-kind designs that brighten up a room. 

 

Buying Yoga Clothing for Your Wife or Girlfriend

(pictured: the Coral Pearl Bra)

Buying the woman in your life yoga clothing is a guaranteed way to get some brownie points during the holidays! What should you look for? Purchasing a comfy yoga bra is a totally acceptable alternative to lingerie - in fact, it's likely to be very well received because it puts her comfort first. When it comes to yoga bras, you'll want to try to pick a size that offers the tightest fit as possible without being too small. The reason for this is that yoga bras don't have wires like many standard bras. Choosing a bra that has too much room may take away the support and lifting power that the tension from a proper fit provides.

 

 

 

Buying Yoga Clothing for Your Mother

(Pictured: Stardust Yogini Capris)

Your mom deserves some amazing yoga clothing this year, doesn't she? Some lovely pieces in vibrant colors will make her really love her morning work or yoga routine. The best type of yoga apparel to buy for your mom is some leggings. Leggings are great because they offer comfort and freedom without the need to wear shorts. In addition, your mom will love having the freedom to move in some capri leggings without worrying about tripping over the bottoms of her pants like she might in standard sweats. 

 

 

 

Buying Yoga Clothing for a Friend

Are you searching for the perfect gift for a friend who loves yoga? Why not get her a breezy yoga tank that she can wear during yoga or during daily life. The holidays are a perfect time to give a friend a bright yoga tank with a flattering cut. Also, you will get some major friend points if you give yoga clothing made from fabric that is breathable and prevents sweat and moisture from taking over.  As far as size, you'll want to go up a size instead of going down a size if you're unsure about a friend's exact dimensions.

This week, we talked about our 3-D bras in our newsletter, and how our innovative design offers support to make you look and feel amazing. But the thing that really helps our beautifully sculpted designs pop is our color selection. I carefully selected all the colors in our Mermaid Collection to help you become empowered, peaceful and motivated. Our vibrant colors are created using eco-friendly, non-toxic methods that don't waste water or pollute the planet like the dyes so many popular labels use. Are you looking to create a certain mood or convey a particular attitude to the world? Take a look at the meaning behind colors used in some of the most popular BaliniSports designs. 

Turquoise 

The meaning of turquoise, like the shade used in our signature Mermaid Bra and leggings, is to help to open the lines of communication between the heart and spoken word. This is a great color to wear if you need help speaking your mind honestly. 

Coral
The color coral, like the shade of our Ollie Bra, signifies vibrancy and being full of life. Because it is in the red family, it represents fiery passion and love.

Indigo

The color of Indigo symbolizes a mystical borderland of wisdom, self-mastery and spiritual realization. Because it is a shade similar to that of the midnight sky, it is thought to intensify any mood. This is probably why our Tiffany Indigo bra makes it so easy to stay focused with intensity during yoga. 

Purple

The meaning of the color purple is closely associated with the fact that it is the most powerful wavelength of the rainbow. It is closely associated with feelings of power and luxury.
