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 review of our app to Lauren. And lastly, our book, Namaslay, is available for preorder.
Between our retreats, the book, the YBC Mantra Box, and so much more - it's safe to say we have a lot going on. In the Office is a series that discusses what's going on at YBC in detail.
YBC Mantra Box - The summer YBC Mantra Box will ship June 30th and I am so excited for you guys to receive it. It's a good one! If you'd like to pre-order the Fall box, it will ship November 30, 2016 and you can be the first to pre-order now.
SWEAT Dvd - Our 60 minute Sweat DVD is now on sale! Use code 5dolla for $5 off now through July 4th, 2016
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 - I still cannot believe Namaslay is a real thing. It's really happening. Pinch me. No, seriously, this is a dream come true. 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. Right now, the YBC team is working like mad 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. (Please come, because a little part of me is terrified no one will show up, haha!)
Upcoming Workshops - We are actively looking for a beautiful space close to Hartford, CT, where we can hold a few workshops this summer. Stay tuned - or if you know of a space, email Madison at yogabycandace dot com. We're also sold out of our Baltimore workshop in September, but we've had a lot of requests for additional tickets, so we may be moving to a bigger room. If you'd like to be notified if more tickets are available, email lauren at yogabycandace dot com.
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.
I've been sharing my OOTDs on the ol' snapper (@yogaby_candace). We're in full-on summer in Connecticut which means humid days in the high 80s so my go-to outfits have been breezy rompers, little dresses, and shorts.
Above, working on a post and doin' what it takes to get the shot! I love the dress I'm wearing here from Lanston (they make such great clothes - I love this flirty dress, this boyfriend dress (on sale!) and this boyfriend jumpsuit (on sale!)). Unfortunately, this dress is sold out, but here's one on sale for a similar look by Splendid, another brand that puts out great staples.
I also got these shoes in my latest Stitch Fix. The fix was pretty much a bust aside from these Dolce Vita Amina Heels... so much so that I might've asked my stylist if they could just send shoe options next time and skip the clothing, because it's just not happening from me....although I will say they're getting closer. They sent boyfriend jeans that would've been cute if the fit had been better, and the top was cute but hung weird on my body. So we're definitely moving in the right direction but I haven't had success in the clothing department yet. The shoes, however were a win. I was on the fence about them, but since I had a credit that covered the amount, I scooped them up and haven't looked back. They're really comfortable, and a totally different style for me, so yay for getting out of my comfort zone.
I love the look of high waist pants, especially on petite peeps like yours truly. I just feel like they define your waist, and elongate your legs. I wore these with a pair of super comfortable wedges (similar on sale), and a crop top (similar). I also wore my new favorite necklace, which I got from my Rocksbox delivery (use coupon code yogabycandacexoxo) for free box).
I know I've posted about this dress before but I love it so so much, even though the print is a little WOAH (which I get around by making dumb jokes like whether or not you can see me). It's so comfortable. Easily the best $10.80 I've spent this season.
On My Desk
1. Rocksbox - If you're going to do a subscription box, Rocksbox is the one to do. And that's saying a lot, given that I've never been much of a jewelry person, aside from my love of stacked bracelets. Every single box is so good! Use code yogabycandacexoxo for a free box.
2. FlyJoy bars - These healthy little bars were featured in our Fabulous Fitness Finds giveaway and man, did they go fast in the office. My favorite flavor was the peanut butter and jelly.
3. #MustHaveBox - POPSUGAR sent me their Must Have Box to try, and it contained deodorant wipes from one of my favorite brands, Pacifica. I've been using them to wipe off after my workouts and have really liked them.
I'd love to hear what's going on in your work life. Are you happy? What gets you through the day? What are you wearing on hot summer days? Any fun new discoveries?
