International Yoga Day

by

To honor International Yoga Day, we’re going to dive into its rich history and unveil how this sacred practice came to be the worldwide phenomenon that it is today.  Although researchers aren’t totally certain when Yoga was born, we know that the first written documents (more like inscriptions on palm leaves), date back to about 5,000 years ago in Northern India.  These texts were part of a greater book called the Rig Veda, which contained songs, mantras, and rituals practiced by the Brahmans (priests).  Over the centuries, Yoga developed from a collection of ideas that could be practiced to achieve enlightenment into physical actions that could be practiced to achieve enlightenment.  In the early 1900s, yoga masters started bringing their practice to the West, opening the first Yoga studio in Hollywood in 1947.

Today, Yoga has reached a mainstream presence.  It is such an integral part of our culture that pants are made just for the practice, and yoga terms, like karma and Namaste, are used on the regular.  All different types of people practice all different types of Yoga.  Some focus more on the breath, while others focus more on the mechanics of movement.  Luckily, there is truly something for everyone.  Let’s celebrate this day with a throwback to our favorite Yoga posts from our blog.

    We’re certainly no scam Katie. Fabletics always features outfits that are up to 50% off regular pricing. Points can be earned for exclusive loyalty items and guess what? The choice is always yours- shop or skip your account by the 5th of the month. If you don’t shop or skip by the 5th, your credit card will be charged $49.95. That charge can be used as a credit to spend or save. More details here: http://www.fabletics.com/help -Alexandra N.

    WARNING!!!! DO NOT ORDER FROM HERE. This is fraud. I am absolutely disgusted with this company. My husband bought me an outfit on Feb 24 for $38.82 US which we received the product for. (this charge we agreed to). On March 11 we were charged $33.99 (we did not agree to this charge nor did we received product). Again my husband made a purchase on March 29 for $49.94 which we did receive product, so we agreed to this charge, but then after that we were charged on April 6 unknowingly for $49.95 and again in May for $49.95 and again in June for $49.95. We have disputed the 4 charges that we didn’t realize we were being charged for,we only received 2 reimbursements (which were under the original amount given the exchange rate in Canada) and they refused to give us back our two remaining charges, stating we agree to some sort of VIP account set up. This is a SHAM, these products are not nearly worth the hassel. DO NOT BUY FROM HERE!!! I plan to continue escalating complaints until I get my money back. This is awful Kate, I hope you really know whats happen here under your name thats being splattered in the mud!
