International Women's Day 🌛

Hey there Yogis!

As you all know, last Wednesday was International Women's Day, a date that is especially important for us, as a small business founded and ran by a woman. 

We would then like to dedicate today's edition not only to women but to all those who are in an unfavorable position and suffer the consequences of an oppressive and unjust system. Collectively we can all #EmbraceEquity.

I. "Still I Rise" by Maya Angelou

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.


Every year on 8 March, International Women’s Day commemorates and honors women's accomplishments, raises awareness about gender disparities and discrimination, and promotes global support for women.

But what do you know about IWD?

On 28 February 1909, the then-active Socialist Party of America celebrated the first National Woman’s Day in commemoration of the 15,000 women who protested in New York against harsh working conditions and lesser wages.

In 1910, Clara Zetkin, a women's rights advocate and the leader of Germany’s Women’s Office for the Social Democratic Party, proposed the idea of a global International Women’s Day.

On 19 March 1911, the first International Women’s Day was held, with more than 1 million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Switzerland taking part. 

Since then, women across the world use this day to come together to rally for equal treatment and representation.

II. Goddess Pose: Utkata Konasana

Goddess pose is a great asana for women as it can help to empower and connect with their feminine energy. This pose can help to tap into the powerful, grounding energy of the earth, which can help to promote feelings of confidence, strength, and self-assurance. 

Goddess pose is good for strengthening the legs, hips, and core. It also opens up the chest and shoulders, and can help to improve balance and stability.

III. On the Basis of Sex | Movie 

On the Basis of Sex is inspired by the true story of a young Ruth Bader Ginsburg – then a struggling attorney and new mother – who faces adversity and numerous obstacles in her fight for equal rights throughout her career.

When Ruth takes on a groundbreaking tax case with her husband, attorney Martin Ginsburg, she knows it could change the direction of her career and the way the courts view gender discrimination. The film also chronicles the storybook-like romance between Ruth and Marty, a partnership that succeeded both personally and professionally. 

IV. And last but not least...

Please, don't miss Serena Williams reading "Still I rise", by Maya Angelou. Click here to watch the video. And enjoy!  


We'll get back to you shortly Yogis!
