Okay, so first let me say I LIKE the local Sports Discount/Retail offerings that are mine in Austin, Texas. A lot of my time and money certainly bear that out. (Or is it “bare” ~ I never know ~ which reminds me of an old joke among writers: Definition of a Synonym — word you use when you’re not sure of the correct usage (or spelling) of the word you REALLY wanted to write.) Suffice it to say, I have spent my fair share on the yoga clothing “lines” (all puns intended) of Nike and Reebok and Danskin.
But with all due respect, there is nothing like the thrill of walking into a Yoga Journal conference Market Place, and especially so here in California. You are suddenly exposed to unique and creative fashions — many made with organic or recycled materials — that hold the promise of saving our planet while STILL making you look hot! I mean, as a yogini, does it GET any better than that?! (Worth Noting: Who can forget that I found sexy Crocs at the Yoga Journal Market Place in Colorado?!)
With a jammed-packed schedule of fabulous workshops with internationally-known presenters, it’s difficult to pull yourself away and head to the Market Place. But DO make the time. It takes consciousness to a whole new level. Go with me here a minute … The Yoga Journal Conference Market Place: Opening Your Eyes (and pocketbooks) to the World of FASHION Consciousness. C’mon people, does it get any better than that?!
