Beth Walker comes into play in this situation. Beth is a highly regarded makeup artist who serves as the Yoga Journal’s resident artist for cover shots and other editorial projects. In 2014, while attending holistic esthetician school and working at the natural health boutique Pharmica, Beth met members of the Yoga Journal crew who frequented the store and became good friends with them. Many famous people have benefited from her work, including the acclaimed Reverend Paula Stone Williams, author of the forthcoming book As a Woman: What I learnt about power, sex, and patriarchy when I transitioned. It gives us great pleasure to have her on the show today. Due to the fact that it is our final broadcast till further notice – the Yoga Show is taking a break — this is a very special show for us.

During this week’s episode, presenter Lindsay Tucker travels to Topanga, California, to participate in a holy cacao ceremony as part of Christine Olivia Hernandez’s Maltyox Method, a gratitude celebration that is designed to cleanse the mind, open the heart, and strengthen both the body and the spirit. The cacao bean, which was discovered by the Olmecs approximately 1500 BC, has been utilized as a holy and ritualistic plant medicine by the Mayan and Aztec societies for millennia as a sacred and ceremonial plant medicine. Christine, a yoga instructor and author of the book A Child of Magic, welcomed us into her house to share her maltyox technique and to tell us about the healing and energizing qualities of cacao, which she grows in her backyard.

Matriarch Movement (matriarchmovement.ca) was founded by Shayla Stonechild two years ago to combat a dominant narrative about Indigenous women that devalues their bodies and cultures while excluding them from mainstream society. With the goal of elevating the voices of Native women and building a community for sharing stories of empowerment, prosperity, and resilience on social media, Native Women’s Empowerment has grown into a full-fledged non-profit that offers wellness workshops and retreats for Indigenous youth who don’t often see themselves represented in the wellness space. The fact that Indigenous women were underrepresented in the condition of resilience and greatness struck me as odd. “We’re constantly considered missing, killed, and vulnerable, and we’re always in a condition of survival,” says the narrator of the story. And I thought to myself, “The Matriarch Movement will be like a shift, a rising, and a reclamation of who we are as Indigenous people, but particularly as female Indigenous people.” According to a 2020 study by the Sovereign Bodies Institute, a research foundation that tracks gender and sexual violence against Indigenous people, there are currently more than 4,000 confirmed unresolved cases of missing and murdered Native women and girls in the United States and Canada. In addition, researchers believe that these figures are low because of underreporting, racial misclassification, poor record keeping, and institutional racism that affects law enforcement and the news media. Shayla believes that for this problem to even begin to be addressed, Indigenous women must be respected and cherished, and maybe most importantly, they must be seen. For decades, the practice of Yoga has been co-opted by white America, according to Shayla. This has resulted in the monetization of the discipline, with negative consequences that are both detrimental and far-reaching. Anusha Wijeyakumar, a yoga teacher and health consultant, is one of the many voices asking for the restoration of yoga to its roots and the accessibility of the whole practice for anybody interested in learning the 8 limbs of yoga in a respectful and non-appropriative manner. Her latest book, Meditation with Intention, was released in January, and you can pre-register for her Intro to the Bhagavad Gita course, which begins on Friday, February 26 at yogajournal.com/courses, as early as Friday, February 26.

  • This week, we spoke with Ginny Hogan (@ginnyhogan_), a standup comedian and Yoga Alliance certified instructor who writes for publications such as the New Yorker, The Atlantic, and Vulture. After quitting her data scientist job in Silicon Valley, Hogan began writing a blog in which she analyzed data from her own dating profiles and online dates in a funny manner. Her journey towards health and wellbeing began once she discovered her comedic voice, which included stopping alcohol and earning her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training certification. We sat up with her to chat about dating and YTT in the age of COVID, as well as how to break free from a smartphone addiction—or not. Tracy Davis works as a volunteer yoga instructor in Arkansas’ most difficult prison. Davis met Jerome Bargo after he was victorious in a years-long legal struggle in federal court to enable prisoners to practice yoga in Arkansas jails, from where he had previously escaped on several occasions. His most recent escape, in 1988, garnered him appearances on America’s Most Wanted and Unsolved Mysteries, among other shows. When he was caught after being on the run for 15 years, someone recognized him from a restaurant television and he was arrested and taken to Arkansas’ Varner Unit high-security state prison, where he is currently serving a 140-year jail term. He discovered yoga in Varner, and it completely transformed his life. During her interview with presenter @linds.tucker, Tracy discusses how prison ministry is changing the lives of our society’s most ignored population: inmates. While pursuing her dream of becoming an ayurveda specialist, popular author, and modern master of old knowledge, Sahara Rose encountered many setbacks and self-doubts along the road. On her path to discovering her own dharma, she discovered that emotions of unworthiness may be expressed in a variety of ways, but that overcoming all of the reasons *not* to accomplish something is critical to achieving one’s life’s goal. Sahara Rose (@iamsahararose) speaks about this in her new book, Discover Your Dharma, A Vedic Guide to Finding Your Purpose, which is available on Amazon and other online retailers. In it, you’ll get a helpful field guide for getting everything done, as well as loads of Ayurvedic suggestions

  • In the most recent edition of The Yoga Show podcast, Lindsay speaks with yoga teacher, mental health advocate, and actor Michelle Natalie Nunez about her work. In Tyler Perry’s Ruthless, Michelle appears in a fake television series that takes a close look at a crazy sex-crazed Rakadushi cult – one that bears uncanny parallels to the Rajneeshpuram, which is run by the Indian guru Rajneesh – and its members (later known as Osho). Michelle’s character was first presented in the show’s mid-season debut, which aired this past Thursday. This week, she joined us to discuss how she stays focused and grounded while filming complicated, often distressing subject matter. Michelle may be found on Instagram under the handle @meeeeshellle.

Lindsay Tucker may be found on social media under the handle @linds.tucker. Our guest this week is Dr. Dean Radin, a parapsychologist and researcher in the field of psychic occurrences at the Institute of Noetic Sciences in New York City. Radin has devoted his professional life to gaining a better understanding of the effects of human awareness on the physical environment. His research, which ranges from numerous Emoto-style water experiments to Ganzfeld tests, both of which we’ll examine in this episode, asserts that humans have the potential to experience precognition, telepathy, and telekinesis. However, his study has been met with controversy. His book, Supernormal: Science, Yoga, and the Evidence for Extraordinary Psychic Abilities, investigates whether yoga and meditation might unlock innate supernormal mental skills such as telepathy, clairvoyance, and precognition that are already present in the practitioner.

Healing is the topic of our September/October edition, and it is a difficult effort to do. Physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausting. Trauma makes its way into each and every one of our lives in some form, and no one is born with a pre-programmed road map on how to go through it. The good news is that we may begin the journey toward feeling whole with the assistance of our friends, family, our community, and professional support. The subject of our cover story this week is this week’s guest: Steven Medeiros is the author of this work. From the Bay Area, he works as an activist and advocate. He lost his leg in a motorcycle accident 17 years ago, and his mother to murder when he was 12 years old. He’s been on a long and difficult path to recovery from his past, both physically and mentally. His current efforts are directed towards aiding in the healing of society as a whole, advocating for much-needed criminal justice changes, and assisting in the prevention of others from experiencing the same situations as he did in his youth. On the episode, Stephen recommends the book The New Jim Crow, which he discusses in detail.

Indie Biz Horror Stories with Polly from Little Bit Margate

14th of October, 2020 Hello! Welcome to Little Bit Margate, where my name is Polly, and where I am the founder and proud proprietor of a gifts, treats, and clothes boutique in Margate Old Town. Little Bit was founded in 2017 as a labor of love for color and immersive experiences, which I have devoted my life to.

One rule is that if anything does not make me smile, it is not permitted to be in the room!

Color is a happy-making substance.

It motivates me to be a little bit braver and bolder every day, and I hope that Little Bit instills the same spirit in others as well. Here is my horror story of starting a small business in Indie. Indie Roller Festive Showcase: Website: Instagram: Indie Roller Festive Showcase:

To achieve this, Andrew dyes mostly British bases (although some world yarns are now appearing in some base blends) in a variety of weights such as Lace, 4ply DK, and Chunky, as well as his popular (and HUGE!) 500g Guernsey ‘Sport’ hanks, across three current collections, as well as’special event’ and limited seasonal releases.

Indie Biz Interview with Nicola from The Secret Crocheter

The 16th of September, 2020 “My name is Nicola, and I am known as The Secret Crocheter — to be quite honest, this is arguably the worst kept secret in the history of the world! With my husband Frank, I reside in Wiltshire where I enjoy a variety of activities like crocheting, cups of tea, chocolate biscuits, and bird watching. Crochet is undoubtedly in my blood; both my mother and grandmother can crochet, and it was my mother who taught me how to crochet when I was around nine years old. And thank heavens she did, because I honestly don’t know where I’d be if it hadn’t been for her.

To ease some of the demands of my day work, I began crocheting as a kind of stress management.

After a few years, you’ll find me at The Crochet Cabin, where I teach others how to crochet and host my own workshops (I knew all those years spent in education would come in good one day!)” Nicola may be found on Instagram at www.instagram.com/the secret crocheter.

Camila Coelho’s Elaluz Defies Everything About an Influencer Beauty Line

At first sight, Elaluz does not appear to have all of the characteristics of a super-influencer beauty brand. Although Camila Coelho, the creator of Zoom, appears to be every inch the polished and stylish YouTuber who got her 8.8 million Instagram followers by producing beauty YouTube videos while working as a department store makeup artist, she appears to be everything but. Her first product line, which includes a lip balm and a lip and cheek stain in rose gold packaging, is as straightforward as they come, with no sign of the celebrity behind it.

“Elaluz is a name that means ‘She is light,'” Coelho revealed to ELLE.com about the meaning of the name.

It happened to me when I was nine years old and was diagnosed with epilepsy.

“Camilla, you can accomplish whatever you want in this world,” my mother told me when I was a child.

Because you are a special girl, just like everyone else, you should make use of the special light that you have. The author discusses her quarantine beauty routine, starting a company while fighting a pandemic, and her particular bond with Diane von Furstenberg in the next section.

Why did you choose two products for this first launch?

Elaluz is a company that specializes in hero items. Instead of developing a comprehensive range of items, I opted to focus on developing products that I actually believe in. Because I was going to use a liquid lip and cheek stain, I wanted to make sure the color was the exact shade of red. For this one, I decided with a richer wine red that looks great on people of all skin tones. I also wanted something that was hydrating. Guarana extract, derived from a Brazilian berry, is one of the key constituents.

  1. We call it the 24 carat lip treatment, and it’s a lip mask that you can apply overnight to get that luxurious look.
  2. I wanted the recipe to be as light as possible so that you could wear it every day and easily store it in your purse.
  3. There are additional components from Brazil, such as cupuac and lychee oil, in this dish.
  4. As a Brazilian and as a Latina, we’re looking into a lot of these unique components that a lot of manufacturers don’t often include in their products.
  5. Elaluz

What has it been like launching your brand during a pandemic?

All of Elaluz’s goods are considered to be superheroes. As an alternative to developing a broad product line, I opted to focus on developing goods in which I really believe. Because I was going to use a liquid lip and cheek stain, I wanted to be sure the hue was the right shade of red. The richer wine red that I chose for this one is flattering on all complexion tones. It has to be hydrating, as well, for me. It contains guarana extract, which is derived from a Brazilian fruit. Because of its high concentration of oils, the balm is extremely rich.

  • Lip masks have been a major obsession of mine.
  • As well as, the 24 carat gold flakes in this piece, which depict the light, are used.
  • Our goods contain a large number of components originating in Brazil.
  • The agricultural wealth of Brazil is something I truly want to investigate, as well as to include my ancestry and nation into this brand.

Who are your beauty icons?

When I think of a beauty icon, my grandma is the first person who comes to mind. She was a radiant woman who radiated with joy and happiness. She was the one who agreed to let me mess about with her cosmetics. When I was six years old, she handed me my first red lipstick. And when I think of a beauty idol, I think of her since she’s, regrettably, not here with me now to share her thoughts with me. Moreover, I’m confident that she’s gazing down at me and saying, “I’m proud of you.” Diane von Furstenberg is another designer to look out for.

She enjoys experimenting with her appearance, yet she is confident in her own skin.

When I arrived to her showroom, she was walking down the aisle with a shower cap on, applying a hair mask. At the 2019 Met Gala, Coelho was accompanied by Diane von Furstenberg and Talita von Furstenberg. Dimitrios Kambouris is a Greek actor and director. Photographs courtesy of Getty Images

What has your beauty routine been like in quarantine?

It is my grandma who comes to me first when I consider a beauty icon. A lady who exuded brightness was the woman she was. The one who allowed me to mess about with her cosmetics was the one who gave me permission. When I was six years old, she handed me my very first red lip gloss. And when I think of a beauty icon, I think of her since she’s, regrettably, not here with me today to share her thoughts with you. Moreover, I’m confident that she’s smiling down at me and saying, “I’m proud of you.

  • For her, it’s all about being herself and expressing her inherent beauty in all its forms.
  • We had a little conversation a few days before we went to the Met Gala together.
  • I asked what she was doing.
  • Dimitris Kambouris is a Greek actor and director who was born in Greece.

Did you seek advice from any women at the helm of their own brands?

Diane von Furstenberg is a fashion designer. I felt quite fortunate and privileged to be seated next to her. She was someone who I paid close attention to and took notes from. It was a personal struggle for me to transform Elaluz into a conscious luxury brand that was also environmentally conscious. And I was well aware that there would be difficulties, particularly in terms of making our goods effective. It was one of the topics on which we had a discussion. I’m quite involved. Anything I do, any material I create, or anything I put out there, I want to make sure I have an outstanding team behind me and that I am aware of everything and that I am giving my approval to everything.

I make certain that my captions are written.

What can we expect next from Elaluz?

A lifestyle brand, it’s a brand that will cross over into a variety of various product categories. In order to do this, we are doing makeup, doing hair, and doing skincare, which I am quite pleased about. I wanted to make certain that we were a clean, environmentally conscious company. We are welcoming to everybody. We have inclusiveness, long-term viability, and transparency. Those are the three major foundations of our organization. And, once again, when it comes to our products, it’s all about generating heroes for our customers.

Meet the GitLab team

As GitLab’s Chief Legal Officer and Corporate Secretary, I rely on my previous experience as a public company executive to establish and manage the company’s overall legal and compliance philosophy and strategy. This includes ensuring that GitLab’s practices, policies, business activities, messaging, communications, and decisions are consistent with the company’s values and culture, among other things. Day to day, I give advice to GitLab and our Board of Directors on a wide range of legal and regulatory issues affecting the company, and I supervise an exceptional, fun-loving group of Legal Professionals that provide outstanding results.

As an Executive Sponsor of GitLab’s Women’s TMRG and Pride TMRG, I’m also happy to be able to assist these organizations.

Prior to that, I served as the legal department head for a number of Adobe Marketing and Creative Cloud products and worked as an Associate at Fenwick & West, a law firm.

I like a nice cup of coffee and would invite you to reach out!

Companies That Test On Animals (2021 Update)

Date last updated: May 26, 2021 The following is a list of firms that do not practice cruelty-free business practices. We mostly drew on information from PETA, and we complemented it with our own research. These companies either do animal testing themselves or sponsor animal testing in some manner, with the most prevalent example being testing on animals in jurisdictions where the law compels it. Additionally, several of the companies mentioned here falsely claim to be “cruelty-free,” a word that is not officially regulated in the United Kingdom.

Big Corporations Who Test On Animals

Several large firms hold the majority of these names, including L’Oreal, Estee Lauder (formerly Procter & Gamble), Clorox (formerly S.C. Johnson), Colgate-Palmolive (formerly Reckitt Benckiser), Church & Dwight (formerly Church & Dwight), Unilever (formerly Church & Dwight), and Henkel. These corporations hold the vast majority of the brands that are regularly found in most retailer stores and drugstores, and they are making no genuine steps to reform their immoral business practices. Except for Colgate-Palmolive (which has agreed to gradually modify its policy), there are two notable exceptions.

  1. Colgate-Palmolive is now listed as “working toward regulatory measures to limit the number of animals used for testing” by the animal welfare organization PETA.
  2. Despite the fact that it is a minor step in the right direction, the corporation is still doing animal testing at this time.
  3. While most businesses that are owned by firms that do animal testing are not cruelty-free, L’Oreal is one of the few companies to own brands that have maintained their ethical stands and have stayed cruelty-free during their time under the control of the company.
  4. All of the brands on this list, on the other hand, do test on animals before going to market.

Please keep in mind that this is not a complete list. This list only covers firms that have said that they have tested on animals at some time or that they sell their products in China; there are many additional companies who have kept silent regarding their animal testing practices.
