Fitness Bra Buying: Handy Tips

Let's get to the part of shopping for the appropriate fitness or sports bra (The Power of Sports Bra in Yoga) for your yoga sessions. Even if you've bought one before, there's always something new to discover. I've been there myself, so trust me, you're in good hands.


First things first, let's talk money. How much are you willing to spend? We don't want to splurge and regret it later, right? Fitness bras can range from around $15 to several hundred dollars. So, set your budget and decide how many bras you want to get within that range.

Nava's Zen: Two-Piece Yoga Outfits Challenge Indian Norms

Eight years ago, when I began my yoga practice, I found myself surrounded by mostly Indian yogis, and yes, they love to be known as all sorts of yogis or masters, instead of yoga instructors. They all dressed in faded t-shirts and faded multi-patterned, multi-colored yoga leggings. It seemed like wearing these clothes was just what you did in Indian yoga circles, and as I got more into yoga, I started dressing the same way.

The message was pretty clear: if you're doing yoga with Indians, wear faded stuff. Decency in temples for yoga, is part of respecting places of worship, which as a Hindu I honour. Yet, most stuck to the faded look. Some even resembled as though they are wearing their home clothes (HOME ATTIRE), and coming straight to temple yoga.

Hey there, fellow yogis! Can we chat for a moment about something that's been on my mind lately? It's about outfits for our zen yoga sessions.

But then it hit me - as the founder of Nava's Zen, it's my job to provide guidance, not assumptions. So, let's dive into what to keep in mind when choosing your yoga outfits.

Zen Style Chronicles: The Serene Aura of Home Attire

In today's Zen Style spotlight, let's explore the serene world of home attire. Let's start with a simple question: What's your go-to outfit for lounging at home? This seemingly straightforward inquiry often invites introspection. Do you immediately have an answer, or do you pause to reflect?

As for me, comfort reigns supreme: I opt for shorts and a t-shirt, a choice deeply rooted in familiarity and ease. However, memories of my upbringing alongside my late mother remind me that wearing shorts was once frowned upon in our cultural context. Nevertheless, as I've journeyed through life, I've embraced this relaxed attire, a preference that persists even at the age of 59.

Radiant Aging: Dignity Through Holistic Wellness

As an ardent advocate for anti-aging, let me unveil the true essence  - it's not about chasing fleeting youth or cosmetic fixes. Instead, it's an artful practice of presenting your best self at every age through self-care. Imagine yoga as the enchanting melody in this anti-aging masterpiece, harmonizing mind, body, and soul for a resonant aging journey.

For me personally, yoga has been a profound mentor of mindfulness - revealing my identity, strengths, and weaknesses. It has guided me in recognizing my tribe, influencing how I conduct yoga sessions with mindfulness as a vital component. This heightened awareness has expanded my thinking, becoming an integral part of my journey as I age with dignity.

Harnessing the Power of Sunblock: Safeguarding Your Skin's Future

Previously, I mentioned the importance of sunblock as part of my skincare routine (Achieving Clear and Healthy Skin), emphasizing its role in defending against the sun. However, in this post, let's delve deeper into why you must consider incorporating sunblock into your daily life, especially if you reside in countries like Malaysia, where scorching weather can take a toll on your skin (Nurturing Your Skin: Know Your Skin Type).

While we need the sun for vitamin D, the increasing frequency of hot weather due to climate change and the thinning ozone layer raises concerns. Temperatures soaring up to 45 degrees Celsius have become the norm. Regardless of the intensity of the heat, I firmly believe that sunblock is a necessity. It bewilders me how some individuals I know claim to remain unscathed by dark spots, pigmentation, wrinkles, and premature aging despite forgoing sunblock.

Nurturing Your Skin: Embracing Your Skin's Story

In my previous sharing, "My Daily Skincare Routine Revealed," I shared snippets of my journey toward healthier skin. Yet, amidst the bustling aisles of skincare products, there's a crucial chapter often overlooked: understanding your skin type. It's a journey of self-discovery, a narrative that unfolds uniquely for each of us.


Imagine standing in front of the mirror, feeling the texture of your skin beneath your fingertips, tracing the lines that tell your skin's story. It's not just about appearance - it's about listening to what your skin whispers to you, understanding its needs, its desires.

Revealing Radiant Skin: Inside My Daily Skincare Routine

Are you one of those people who are obsessed with their skin? Well, there's no shame in that. After all, our skin is the largest organ of our body and it deserves all the attention and care that we can give it (Embracing Eternal Youth With Yoga And Skincare Mantras). In this post, I want to focus specifically on the skin on our face because it is the most visible part of our body and it requires a different level of care than the rest of our skin. 

You might be wondering why I'm making a distinction between the skin on our face and the rest of our body. The reason is simple - the products that we use to take care of our skin are not all the same. For example, the lotion or cream that we use on our hands or legs might not be suitable for the delicate skin on our face. That's why it's important to use products that are specifically designed for the face.
