PSA: Just a few spots left at our Costa Rica retreat! Also, we're getting ready to plan summer and fall retreats if you want to chime in. But if online is more your jam, we now have video bundles available for all levels. Don't forget that you'll get a free gift when you screenshot your review of our app to Lauren. And lastly, our book, Namaslay, is available for preorder.
Woah it's been a minute since we did a little update about what's going on in the YBC world, so I thought I'd fill you all in.
Last week I went down to the city to team up with Sweaty Betty and teach at their Soho studio. It was such a lovely time - I absolutely adore everyone that works with Sweaty Betty. Whether it's their team in London (they're a UK-based team), or the people in New York, every single person has been so warm, kind and welcoming.
Love them. If you're interested, they just launched their new season, Rio. I am loving this super cute crop top, these reversible shorts that would work for lifting or hot yoga, and my new favorite shirt to teach yoga in because it's long to keep you covered and clingy so students can see what you're doing but not so clingy that it's uncomfortable.
YouTube: We just hit 90,000 subscribers on YouTube last night! Ca-razy. I remember just a few years ago, I'd post and my video would have maybe twelve views in a week, haha. If any of you are YouTubers just keep the faith, keep posting quality stuff, post regularly, and answer comments. You'll eventually build up a little YT community, it just takes time.
Instagram: Instagram and I have had a renewed love affair as #YBCstrongflow continues this month. I've loved seeing everyone's photos and progress as they move through the program. I do my best to answer comments, so if you ever have something to say, just let a sista know and I'll do my very back to get back to you.
Facebook: I am sort of over facebook, but I know that it reaches a different demographic than instagram and twitter, so I keep up with it. Lately I've been sharing funny memes that crack me up like this one.
Snapchat: The ol' snap is always a good time and my favorite place to go to be my weirdo self. I love that it's not this curated platform and we can just share whatever. I share everything from deliveries that are sent to the office to full breakdowns of my workouts to random accents I enjoy trying out. I'm @yogaby_candace on there.
YBC Mantra Box
We just shipped out the latest Mantra Box and we have the next one set to ship out in June, and have already secured a sweet line up of awesome brands. I can't wait for you guys to get it. There are a few more left before they sell out and you can snag yours here.
Costa Rica: Our Costa Rica retreat happens May 16 - 22, and tomorrow is the last day to sign up to join us, so hop to it!
Others: We've got high hopes for the summer/fall and are currently looking at hosting one in Europe or Northern Africa in the summer and then another long weekend one maybe in New England. Basically, we're workin' on it so if summer or fall is a better time for you to get away, just stay tuned :)
We are in the middle of the editing process for my book Namaslay, which comes out in October at bookstores everywhere. Right now it's available for pre-order on amazon (and if you're in another country, just search your country's Amazon, if there is one). This has been the most exciting and fun thing I've done in a long time and I'm so pumped about it. I can't wait to share it with you guys! We'll be doing a book tour, so stay tuned for the dates on that.
2. PyraDerm is a new all-natural line formulated with rejuvenating ayurvedic herbs specifically selected for their anti-aging benefits from the Chopra Center, who is offering a 10% off coupon code with Candace10 (expires May 15, 2016). They're actually hosting a giveaway which you can enter to win a full Pryaderm System (giveaway ends May 15).
I personally love the facial spray that kind of wakes me up and rejuvenates my skin, and the hand salve is awesome as well.
3. Hug Me Lipstick - I've been wearing this lipstick nonstop for the last week or two. It's a pretty natural nude that offers just the right amount of umph.
4. Rocksbox - This month's rocksbox was killer with this awesome necklace I scooped right up. Use code yogabycandacexoxo for a free box!
5. Exo Bar - Love these cricket bars for when I'm on the go like last week in New York. They're a good way to get a solid amount of protein in when you're away from home.
Last week, Lauren was in town and we took a tour of an incredible space in downtown Hartford where we are considering opening up a yoga studio. We're currently waiting to hear back about floor plans and the next steps, so please send some good vibes that everything works out!
What's up with you?
So that's what's going on the YBC front - I'd love to hear what's going on in your world. What are you up to? How are thangs going? Anything you're struggling with? Anything that made you laugh recently? Something you're looking forward to?
