“let the mystery of life hold you, while proceeding with grace and curiosity for who you are and what life is bringing you” – Steph Wall Yoga

At the end of September, Steph hosted a Yoga retreat at La Calma in the jungle of Tulum, Mexico. Yoga, travel, and tequila brought us all together in Mexico and there was no shortage of laughs, jungle sweat, or cervezas.

A hot minute with Steph:

What was the inspiration for Strong & Free Mexico edition? Prior to the Strong and Free Retreat in Mexico, all my retreats had been run in partnership with someone else. I wanted to challenge myself and do something on my own this time. I wanted to step up and do something that would challenge me to really live Strong and Free! I chose Mexico specifically because I wanted to go somewhere I had already been to, already fallen in love with, and knew we would be safe and comfortable. Tacos and margaritas were a factor in this decision as well.

Style of yoga that inspires and challenges you? Vinyasa all the way!! I love teaching something so fluid and graceful. It gives me the gift of creative expression, whether I am teaching it or practicing it. It can hold me like a baby when I need it, and it can challenge me like a bitch when I need it.

Favorite food dish in Mexico? Drink?! Fish tacos and una y dos y tres cervezas 🙂

49TH PARALLEL NORTH

Lake Louise, Alberta Canada, Travel Alberta

Hello new year and new adventures. No matter your adventure style, one things for sure, we all like to be warm (and dry!) this time of year. We rounded up a few different ways to keep you warm while enjoying the great outdoors this snowy and wet winter.

When you live above whatever parallel that makes winter last longer than a couple months a year, you want to be protected in the elements, from walking your dog to hiking into the mountains. We’ve chosen a few styles from the Fjallraven line (meaning: Arctic Fox in Swedish, very cool), a company founded on well designed outdoor products, a responsibility to nature and our environment as well as social responsibility.

Shopping, it’s a love hate relationship for some, but smart shopping is everyones best friend. When purchasing technical gear, you have many things to check off the list: (#1) Quality, please don’t break on me next week, which means that (#2) Price, don’t break the bank either, but if you do, buy wisely and make sure there is a warranty offered and that at least you’ll have it forever because (#3) Appearance, at the end of the day, we can’t argue style and well, black never goes out of style.

Our choice picks from the lineup

Fjallraven Canada - Outdoor LivingGreenland Winter: Classic and comfortable! Your everyday jacket, but with a little extra fleece love on the inside. Made with G-1000® fabric, which makes it both durable and wind & water resistant.

Fjallraven Canada - Outdoor livingNuuk Parka: If you’re doing any expeditions, this is your jacket! The perfect long and roomy women’s parka that keeps your bum and thighs warm. Even in unpredictable weather conditions, this jacket has you covered as it protects against the wind and rain at the same time as the Supreme Micro Loft padding keeps you warm in really low temperatures. Detachable artificial fur that keeps snow storms away from your face, so feel free to join Han Solo on planet Hoth and join the Rebels!

Iceland_Anorak_89690-320_RedIceland Anorak: If you enjoy outdoor activities, this one has your name on it. This functional anorak comes wind and water resistant ready with G-1000 Original technology. The durable weave releases more moisture than water proof garments which reduces the risk of becoming cold due to base layers becoming damp. Perfect for active outdoor adventurists who ski/snowboard, hike, ice skate, pretty much anyone who basically lives outdoors! Side note* G-1000 fabric can be impregnated with Greenland Wax for extra protection against the elements, instant upgrade!

Lukkha_No3_89931-633_Dark-OliveLuhkka No. 3 Cape: Last but not least, this bad boy is not only extra style points, but this reversible cape is also protecting you with knee-length, G-1000 Eco fabric with exclusive Shetland wool from the renowned cloth mill Abraham Moon on the inside. Perfect for winter surfers, or coastal dwellers, and outdoor fashionistas.

Flashback to Fargo, you didn’t think we would forget accessories did you!? Well of course not, here’s a hot little hat we couldn’t resist. Nordic Heater: Extra warm hat that withstands wind and rain in both polar climates and biting winds. The outer material is soft, quiet polyester with fluorocarbon-free impregnation.
