Hot yoga became so popular in Vancouver, but do you know what hot yoga is?

Hot yoga is a vigorous form of yoga performed in a studio that is heated to 105F (40C) and has a humidity of 40 percent. The formal name for hot yoga is “Bikram yoga”.

 

Survive a couple rainy Vancouver winters, and you’ll know pretty quickly how beneficial heat can be to the body, the mind, and the soul.

There are tons of benefits. Here are some example:

Muscles: The benefits of hot yoga and the heat allows you to achieve greater flexibility and ease getting into the postures, which means you get the benefits from the postures more quickly, and it is safer to push yourself further into the postures

Heart and lungs: Your heart will beat faster creating the same effect as any aerobic exercise, which makes your body burn fat more effectively.

Skin: You sweat! Your body uses sweating to detoxify, and it makes your skin glow

There are various hot yoga studios in Vancouver! Give it a try and get healthy body!

Where can I try bouldering?

Where can I try bouldering?

Have you ever tried bouldering before?

ボルダリングに挑戦したことはありますか?

Bouldering is rock climbing stripped down to its raw essentials. Leaving behind ropes and harnesses and just using climbing shoes and a bag of chalk over safety mats, your challenge is to climb short but tricky bouldering “problems” (a route, or sequence of moves) using balance, technique, strength, and your brain. You don’t need experience or lots of expensive kit to have a go – making it really easy to get into if you’ve never tried it before.

ボルダリングとは、ロープを使わずに登って落ちても致命傷にならない程度の高さの岩をフリークライミングするロッククライミングです。ボルダリングは専用の靴とチョーク(手が滑らないように)とバランス、テクニック、力、そして脳を使いながら行うスポーツです。

Vancouver Best hand made organic soap

Looking for handmade soap that skips the synthetic stuff in favour of natural ingredients?

Stock up for your own enjoyment, or wrap up a sweetly scented gift package.

Why use organic soap ?

organic

Many people have sensitive skin that doesn’t respond well to chemically laden soap.

By using organic soap, you might be able to avoid, or at least reduce, the skin problems that are caused by irritating chemical

ingredients.

Organic soap contains ingredients that are not, and have not been produced with, herbicides, chemical fertilizers.

It’s invaluable for those who suffer from chemical sensitivities.

店内もクリーン、キュートな雰囲気なのでお買い物するのがより楽しくなりますね!

洗濯洗剤、掃除に使う洗剤、ボディソープ、洗顔ソープも置いてあり全部オーガニック;)

そもそもオーガニックって何?て思う方もいますよね。

オーガニック

〈有機の〉という意味で,通常は農薬や化学肥料を使わず有機肥料によって生産された農産物のことを言います!

普段私たちが使っている石鹸の原油が石油など化学物質がたくさん含まれておりお肌が悲鳴をあげているんです。

バンクーバーにはオーガニックソープ専門店などオーガニックのお店が多いので手に入りやすいですね

 

お値段は少し高めですが、健康のことを考えたら出す価値はありますね!
