How have the Asian philosophies around winformed the development of the Be Well. Festival?
The concept of holistic wellness has always been a governing philosophy for most Asian cultures. Chinese medicine is a wonderful example that embodies the concept of finding an ever-changing equilibrium. Everything we do must be all rounded, holistic, which really is the essence of Be. Well.
What are your five must-haves for a self-care routine?
My self-care routine is much more holistic. It is something I practice throughout the day. The five things that are most important to me are:
- physical wellness through yoga
- mental wellness through weekly therapy sessions with my counsellors, even when I am in a happy state
- social wellness through laughter sessions
- environmental wellness with a walk allowing me to slow down
- financial wellness through regular financial planning
Chinoiserie Yoga Mat by White Labelling
Who is your favorite Vermillion wellness brand/creator and why?
The White Labelling yoga mats are my favorite because of the aesthetics and the material used. The brand has reshaped what yoga mat really is - it is a canvas, an affordable art piece where yoga mats no longer need to be rolled way. White Labelling's design is inspired by the Asian culture and uses a lot of Chinoiserie prints. It is the perfect marriage between art and wellness.
Additionally, the yoga mats are eco-friendly. The mats are made of vegan suede and natural rubber, which means the entire mat is recyclable and biodegradable.
