PSA: Join us in Morocco in August for a yoga retreat that will take you deeper into your personal practice. 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 reviewof our app to Lauren. And lastly, our book, Namaslay, is available for preorder.
I cannot believe it is August. Cannot. Where did the summer go?! With fall fast approaching, it means the Namaslay book tour is almost here. It is sure to be one of the most exciting falls I have had in years, and I am simultaneously excited and nervous. Here's a quick update of what's going on in the YBC office:
YBC Mantra Box - The fall YBC Mantra Box is available for pre-order and will ship November 30th. We currently have just a few left in stock! It'll be filled to the brim with amazing health and wellness goodies from small businesses you've never heard of. I love shopping small, so this project is especially near and dear to my heart.
YBC Video Bundles - James and I are working on coming up with an amazing 30 day program for you guys. You can expect that towards the end of July. I am really excited about this and I can't wait to share more details. In the meantime, we've got video bundles for my total beginners, and my advanced people working on arm balances. For both, use code namaslay for $10 off.
Namaslay - Right now, the book is available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and, for my people who love to shop small, at an independent bookseller near you. We are currently working with our PR person to iron out the details of our book tour. We'll have stops in Boston, New York, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin, Miami and Hartford, CT. It kicks off in October and I'll be sure to keep you guys updated as soon as details are set in stone.
Upcoming Workshops - We have two upcoming workshops. Our next one is tomorrow, in Short Hills, NJ (there are still spaces left - sign up now!) After that, we have a Baltimore workshop in September and have opened up extra spaces, so sign up for that if you're local!
YogaByCandace Official App - The YBC app is thriving! It's got a fun instagram-like feature where the YBC Community is sharing photos and chatting, and the yoga videos there are well organized. You can also opt-in to our subscription based membership for exclusive content every week. The app is available for iOS and google play, and if you screenshot your review of the app to Lauren, you'll get a free gift.
Namaslay Merch - We are currently developing a line of Namaslay branded items and we'd love your input! We are thinking tanks, bracelets, notebooks, totes, maybe a fitness journal? If there's something specific you'd like to see, please let us know down in the comments below! It would be a very simple design that says Namaslay, in the same font that is on our front cover.
On my desk
- Rocksbox - I'm still loving my rocksbox deliveries! I've been on a delicate necklace kick lately, and the Rocksbox has not disappointed! Use code yogabycandacexoxo for your free box!
- Temple Turmeric - These turmeric shots showed up on my doorstep from my friends at Temple Turmeric and I am a huge fan. They have thirteen ingredients - all things you recognize and can pronounce - nothing artificial, no sweetener - it's just a great little shot of health that helps to boost immunity and is anti-inflammatory. Big fan.
- Perfect Bar sent a bunch of bars a few weeks back and they are really saving me when I'm running out the door and approaching the "hangry" status! This flavor - almond acai - is my current favorite.
Since I've mostly been out of the office this month because I've been in Italy, I don't have too many photos to share, but I did enjoy a particularly dreary day of weather in white jeans (on sale!), heels (similar on sale) and a draped black shirt a few weeks back. A couple people have asked about my favorite brand of denim recently. My favorite is J Brand. I find their sizing to be consistent, and their quality unparalleled. I confess to only really buying them when they're on sale just because, I don't know, I like to save a buck when I can! Below are a few pairs I am loving that are on sale by J Brand. (Disclaimer: these are affiliate links, which means YBC earns a commission when you check them out - thanks for the support!)
My second favorite go-to is a tie between Hudson jeans and 7 For All Mankind. Their quality is excellent, although their sizing is sometimes off for me so I always try to buy them from a place where I can get free shipping and free returns (and of course I only buy them on sale). Here are a few that I like (again, these are affiliate links):
Prism Sport kindly sent a pair of capris my way and I am loving their bright pop of color! I would say that I would probably size up in these, though. I am a Lululemon size 4, and while I can get away with an XS, I think I would prefer a size Small, so just something to keep in mind if you're new to the brand. Below are a few other prints I like from their line (affiliate links)
And that's my update for this month! Please feel free to share your ideas for Namaslay merch down in the comments below - and let me know if you have any questions I can address in next month's In the Office. xo
