Self Care October Challenge


With the official start of Fall underway, we are turning inwards and issuing a call for our Namaste Community to make this month all about Self Care.

We know how busy life with its ever growing To Do List.  So often, we spend our time ensuring everyone else is taken care of, make sure our friends and families feel loved and cared for, help our colleagues out, and be the best partners we can be. We spend our time constantly giving outwards instead of inwards.

This month we are putting the focus back on You.  We want to know how you explore Self Care in your #mynamastelife. Is it making time for your personal practice, a coffee date with yourself, a recipe that makes you feel sustained and nourished, a bath filled with your favourite scents, a hike somewhere beautiful?   We want to know and we want to celebrate your Self Care efforts also.

We have partnered with our friends at Halfmoon for our monthly giveaway. Halfmoon are inventors, makers and curators of beautiful yoga and meditation products.  They hand make their yoga bolsters, meditation cushions and other beautiful props with natural materials in our home base of Vancouver, Canada. We have a beautiful set of a bolster and block for one lucky Namaste fan who shares with us their Self Care efforts.  Share with us anyway you like, a photo, story, your favourite self-care quotes, anything that communicates how you explore self-care!  

Inspire your fellow Namaste tribe by using #mynamstelife to share on social media how you use yoga as a guide on and off your mat.   Details of entry are below.   Remember to tag #mynamastelife on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter so we can follow along your self-care journey!
