Purely Love at Yoga Journal Conference NYC
The purely team had a blast last weekend, mingling with yogis from across the country at the Yoga Journal Conference in NYC. We gave away samples of our ancient grain granolas + melt-in-your-mouth chocolate chip cookies, which were devoured in between yoga sessions. On our down time, we got the chance to meet some really awesome companies in the health and wellness industry. Here are 5 of our favorites:
Violet Love– We fell in love with the headbands and cozy chic leggings this LA based brand had to offer at the Yoga Journal Conference. Along with being super comfortable, all of Violet Love’s creations (designed by Rebecca Michaels) come in a slew of cute colors and patterns, adding the perfect pop of color to your workout outfit or as a summertime accessory.
KeVita– Kevita is a line of sparkling, mineral-rich probiotic drinks, created with four strains of live probiotics to improve overall immune and digestive health. The drinks are certified organic, non-GMO and gluten free. Our absolute favorite flavor was the refreshing Kevita Mojito, which tastes like key lime pie in a bottle, except with no added sugar!
Hyde– Hyde is an eco-friendly yoga apparel and accessories company, that creates affordable gear for the trendy yogi. Hyde’s yoga clothes are organic and lightweight, optimized for flexibility and comfort.
Chakra– Chakra is a company based out of Australia that creates absolutely beautiful and uplifting works of art and crystal jewelry, designed to foster positive energy and bring balance to all aspects of life. Based on the ideology that your 7 chakras (energy centers of the body) must be balanced for optimal well-being, each piece of jewelry draws on the healing powers of specific crystals that can be worn and worked with daily to empower positive change in your life.
Maharishi Ayurveda– Our booth was located right across from this Ayurvedic product line, and we could not have been happier with the amazing aromas that were floating our way all day. Our favorite takeaway from their booth was the pranamist – an aroma therapeutic mist containing a 100% pure essential oil blend of Rose Geranium, Sweet Orange, Holy Basil, Fennel and Marjoram – it’s been a staple in our office ever since!
