One hundred yoga pants marching in the biggest filmmaking studio on the Balkans.
They pass through London, New York, Rome and other sets to get to their destination – 3 colossal rooms.
The studios are filled with the best moviemaking equipment and more than 80 filmmaking professionals who have already set up the lighting, moved dollies in, and charged the camera batteries for the next 12 hour shooting session to produce the best quality yoga on the market. (more…)
I got this question from my beloved grandma as she entered the room where I was struggling to do Ustrasana (camel pose) for the first time.
It’s been two years since I found my yoga and my family not only accepted but embraced it too. Though the “doughnut” question gave me no rest. Do people really see yoga simply as a body-twist routine?
Later on my concern got even worse. I took a yoga class while studying at Utah State University. Once a friend of mine asked to join the group. It came as a surprise, because she had never expressed any interest in yoga practice and in reply to my astonished look, she said: “I just want to learn how to do a headstand!” (more…)
There are many positive aspects of change that one does not realize. Not only does participating in change affect your daily lifestyle but your overall mental capacity. I found that by just being around the positive people and healthy food has flipped my outlook on how easy change can be!
The need for a unique experience
I was always looking for change and I didn’t think of how to go about doing so.
I had already had tried diets and gym exercise but it was just too hard because food always tastes better when it is unhealthy and getting a gym membership means constantly being intimidated by people. My volleyball coach had said we had to do yoga three times a week. It was hard at first and I found the classes intimidating. However, I did notice that I felt better after just a few classes.
Have you ever had the feeling being unhealthy and feeling like rubbish?
Have ever had in mind why you don’t do anything to feel better, and you keep that in mind and continuing feeling bad.
Why do you continue feeling bad?
Is it because you can’t feel good or because you don’t want to feel good?
The answer is NEITHER.
You can feel good – you will realize you want to – and as a matter of fact you can feel GREAT.
You can be the awesome person you see every time you close your eyes and start dreaming.
The only thing you have to do is not to think about the fear in your mind to face anything new which is out of your comfort zone!
Do not be afraid, be confident!
Yoga is not just exercise, not just physical. yoga is about lifestyle, a mindset, a state of mind.
Doing yoga is not only improving your body strength but makes you more a peaceful and “grateful for life” person.
“Yoga as a lifestyle can open your mind to these little everyday details you are missing, for example the great colleague at work who brings you coffee every morning or the great friends you have.”
Don’t have time or don’t want to get out?
No problem, there is an awesome solution which I really want to share with you. It’s online yoga, at its best!
I found that Udaya Yoga gave me the amazing opportunity to practice as often as I needed to continue to feel great. I have used both online yoga classes and offline DVDs.
It it evident that these online classes were lovingly crafted by people who love yoga for people who need yoga. And because of the yoga, I recognise that and am so grateful for it, and the changes it has made in my life.

Are you a Star Trek fan? Even if not, I am sure you can remember popular American actor, director, poet, songwriter and photographer, Leonard Nimoy. He is famous for his role in Star Trek staring Mr. Spok. (more…)
If someone is doing a good job, and you are a fan you could do two things.
Think “wow! They are impressive/nice/good at their work. I must tell people about them.” And then forget (even though you are well meaning).
Feature them in your blog!
Having a blog gives you the power to say THANK YOU for making this world a little bit better. Or a lot. And that’s what this blog is about. I wanted to feature an artist I met recently – who is not only doing good work, but is sharing great messages at the same time.
The art of good marketing
Last month I attended the Lambeth Country Show, a free community event held annually in Brockwell Park, Lambeth. The show features a wide range of fun activities and attractions, including live music acts, fairground rides, arts and crafts stalls and vegetable animal competitions. This is where I came across Jon Judace, a London-based artist who specializes in abstract black and white sketches and freehand drawings.
Dedicated to art and marketing
Judace, an artist ‘dedicated to sharing art with as many people as possible, and encouraging others to explore their own artistic skills’, caught my attention, not only with his fantastic artistic ability, but also with his ingenious marketing material; when I bought one of his sketches I received a small card with a short message thanking me for my purchase and providing me with his contact details and additional information about his work. The card also included a list of five promises concerning the quality of his work.
This card was a nice touch as it allowed me as a customer to feel appreciated, in addition to being informative and providing me with all the details I need should I want to buy from him again or get in touch. But perhaps most importantly it made him stand out. So well done to Mr Judace for demonstrating the art of good marketing!
As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, having a blog or website enables you to help and thank those who you admire, and who are doing great work. Judace has generously used his website to showcase other amazing artists as well- so don’t forget to check them out too!
Blogs can be used as online diaries, a place to share ideas and advice, or even instead of a website to promote a business or organisation. We like to make specially customised ones and want to make more for our clients!
We have created this to give extra help and advice where needed. Just get in touch if you would like to talk more about it - email info[at]topleftdesign.com and just tell us you saw this message! We will know what to say after that.
