White Moon Malas

img_4862img_4854img_4888img_4883img_4864As a dedicated yogini, one of my favorite hobbies at yoga classes and on Instagram is watching yoga fashion on my fellow yoga lovers. One thing that has been missing from my perfect yoga outfit was a mala, a beautiful piece of jewellery that is usually used for meditation – but makes a perfect addition to your look. My boyfriend’s cousin Špela has her own mala brand, White Moon Malas, and I was beyond excited when his mother got me a mala bracelet for my birthday. My mala has beautiful neutral shades and is made of rosewood, rose quartz and picasso jasper beads. I’ve been wearing it every single day to work, it goes amazing with any style even outside the yoga class!

Her designs are without a fault – everything is thought out to the last detail. Every mala comes in a cute box with a ribbon and inside there are a mala with a protective pouch along with a personal message, some information about the semi-precious stones the piece of jewellery is made of and some general information on maintenance and history of malas. She also has her own Etsy shop that you can visit here, so if you have a friend or family member who enjoys doing yoga and you want to get them something beautiful and personal, take a look at her malas and you may find something that will be perfect just for them!

Yoga Routine

Zdravo! :) Do sedaj o tem še nisem bolj podrobno pisala, zato se mi zdi, da je zdaj pravi čas, da govorimo tudi o športnih aktivnosti. Z jogo se ukvarjam že pet let in moram priznati, da začetek ni bil prav prijeten. S športom sem se ukvarjala že prej, vendar na tako intenzivno vadbo niti slučajno nisem bila pripravljena. Vse je bolelo, nobene roke in noge nisem mogla iztegniti do konca … Tako sem vaditi pričela tudi doma in napredek je bil že po nekaj tednih viden – predklon in druge asane sem naredila brez problema in šele takrat sem med jogo pričela uživati.

Hi! :) I haven’t written about this particular theme until now and I think it’s the right time to talk about sports activities. I’ve been doing yoga for five years and have to admit that the start wasn’t particularly pleasant. I’ve been doing sports before, but I wasn’t prepared for such an intense workout. Everything hurt, I couldn’t stretch my arms and legs properly etc. Then I started to do yoga at home and the progress was remarkable after a few weeks – I could do a forward bend and other asanas without any problem and that was the moment when I really started to enjoy doing yoga.

Dve pomembni stvari pri vadbi: glasba in dišeče palčke. Vse skupaj ustvari res prijeten ambient in joga je še bolj privlačna in zanimiva. V vsem tem času nisem našla boljših dišečih palčk od teh, Zimski gozd, ki sem jih našla v prodajalni L’Occitane. Žal so jih umaknili iz prodaje in jih od takrat nikjer nisem videla. (-> če jih najdete, mi prosim prinesite ene!) <3

Two important things in my yoga routine: music and incense sticks. Both together create a very pleasant atmosphere and make yoga even more interesting. I haven’t found better incense sticks than the L’Occitane’s Winter Forest. Unfortunately, they have been removed from sale and I haven’t seen them since. (-> if you find them, please bring them to me!) <3

Za prijetno vadbo potrebujemo tudi udobna oblačila. Meni ustrezajo čim bolj oprijeta, da med vadbo ne motijo. Jogo je priporočljivo izvajati na podlogi, zato da smo med asanami čim bolj stabilni in nam pod stopali ne drsi. Trak je poljuben, lahko nam pomaga pri nekaterih asanah, ki jih (še) ne moremo do konca narediti. Po vadbi je dobro piti vodo.

For a pleasant workout, we need comfortable clothing. I prefer my clothes be as fitting as possible, otherwise they tend to disturb you during workout. We should do yoga on a yoga ma– it makes us more stable and our feet don’t slip. The resistance band is optional and helps with asanas which cannot be done properly (yet). After the workout, it’s essential to drink water

Priporočam, da se vsaj na začetku jogo delate v športnem/joga centru. Učitelji joge vedno pazijo, da asane izvajamo čim bolj pravilno. Treba je tudi vedeti, da obstaja več vrst joge, meni ustreza bolj intenzivna. Če imate srečo, se vam bo med vsako vadbo na podlogo usedel maltežanček :)

I recommend to start doing yoga in a sports/yoga centre. Yoga teachers always watch out for you to perform the asanas correctly. It’s important to know that there are different types of yoga. Personally, I prefer a more intense workout. If you’re lucky, a small maltese will decide to sit on your mat during every session :)
