During the Holiday season things can get pretty stressful. Even if you are having fun and love Christmas it can feel a big overwhelming. That's why we have decided to something a little different this year and offer TWO 15 minute meditation sessions in our Vancouver store to help deal with the stress.
Christmas De-stress Event
What: 15 minute Hatha yoga breathing meditation. Amrita will be teaching alternate nostril breathing, belly breathing and back breathing. You can just wear regular clothing. Ideally clothing you can breathe in :)

Where: Movement Global 2076 West 4th Ave (at Arbutus) in Vancouver
When: December 12 2018. We have two 15 minute meditation slots : 6:15pm - 6:30pm, 8:15pm-8:30pm

My great passion is living a sustainable lifestyle both inside and out. Alongside developing a fashion company that treads more lightly on the planet, I have spent years studying yoga and Ayurveda.
I have written two cookbooks for those that are interested in learning more about this rich Indian tradition in food preparation and healthy living.
These books can both be purchased through Vancouver publisher Arsenal Pulp Press at the links below.
About the books
Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old holistic healing tradition from India whose history is linked to the development of yoga, in which physical and spiritual well-being comes from a number of sources, including a healthful diet based on one's individual constitution. Today, it has a growing constituency, including well-known practitioner Dr Deepak Chopra.
Ayurveda is about achieving a physical and spiritual balance through a number of means, including diet. This all-vegetarian cookbook based on Ayurvedic traditions features delectable and nutritious recipes that appeal to particular doshas, which are one's personal constitution based on physical and mental characteristics: air (vata), fire (pitta), and earth (kapha) (the book includes a dosha questionnaire so readers can determine their own). And while the recipes are authentically Ayurvedic, they feature easy-to-find ingredients and modern-day cooking methods appropriate for busy lifestyles.
Recipes are divided into Breakfasts, Appetizers, Salads, Soups, Entrees, Grains & Breads, Sweets & Desserts, and Condiments. The book also includes yoga postures (with photographs), cleansing programs, and information on aromatherapy, colour therapy, and menu plans. There also are suggested meat substitutions for non-vegetarians (Ayurveda is not exclusively vegetarian, although this book is).
Written with both converts and beginners in mind, The Modern Ayurvedic Cookbookis a twenty-first-century approach to an ancient tradition that will restore your health, energy, and sense of well-being.
Amrita Sondhi's second cookbook, The Tastes of Ayurveda, was published in 2012. Partial proceeds from the sale of this book will go to �support the Pamoja Foundation, www.pamoja.org.
We live in one of the most beautiful places in the world in Springtime don't we? I have so much gratitude that we can run our local -made in Canada- clothing line from our two shops in Vancouver, and on Bowen Island where we began. Other than the fabric (which is made in Quebec, and under the very strict Canadian toxins guidelines), Movement Global truly represents 100-mile fashion.
Last weekend we spent a gorgeous and fun four hours shooting some of our latest sustainable fashion designs from just outside our flagship store at Bowen Islands' Artisan Square. Bowen local Robyn Westcott, and her boyfriend Mitch volunteered their time to help us with the shoot, and were so lovely and fun to work with!
Robyn and Mitch are both actors now based in Vancouver, but still love coming back to the island for some RnR.
Robyn loves wearing Movement Global clothing because they are "...fashionable but still super comfortable." Mitch loves the thermally regulating quality that is inherent in bamboo saying, " they are great clothes for an active lifestyle, not too hot and not too cold.”
Thanks Mitch and Robyn!
Below Mitch is wearing the MT3 the mens reversible Hanson Hoodie in charcoal mix and Black $136 with the MP3 Jessie pant in charcoal $136
Robyn is wearing our P10 Pietra crop legging $79 that many of our customer live in with the favourite dolman sleeve T47 Betty top in charcoal mix.
Robyn rests in the new bamboo slub T60 Vicky V neck $86 which is longer in the back than the front. The bamboo slub has a wonderful light feel and drape. Here is is paired with the Sk15 Phoebe single layered skirt $126. Both pieces have U hemlines which mirror each other and have a flattering silhouette.
