CEO Jamie's fave is Cacao with Reishi.
'I mix it with warm coconut milk and add a bit of coconut oil for an extra kick of creaminess and flavor.
It’s the perfect way to relax, unwind, and signal to my brain that it’s time for rest.'

Social Media guru, Emma's, fave is a blend of Lion’s Mane and Chaga to really kick start her day.

It really turns my brain on and it’s what I look forward to each morning!'

Surya Devotion Flow

Mark Morford

Do you know Surya? Do you know what Surya Namaskar, an exceedingly common “warm-up” Vinyasa sequence practiced in roughly 108 million yoga studios across the land, is actually all about? Here’s the thing: Most yoginis don’t.

Not to worry; here’s a brief, powerful, thoroughly light-soaked overview, and vigorous morning (pre-dawn, ideally) ritual practice, dedicated to the “true” meaning of Surya and his famous “sun salutation,” which might not be quite what you think it is. Just an exercise? A classic warm-up? Sort of. But oh, also so much more. Also a ritual, a prayer, an offering of devotion to life itself, like you cannot believe. Or can you? Of course you can.

Morning Badass Flow II: Just Another Day

Mark Morford

It can be a dangerous mindset we all fall into at some point: We start believing that life really IS what we often say it is: Same ol’ same ol’, back to the grind, just another slog, hoping to survive. In other words, life is, we numbly come to think, just a burden to be endured. Joy is an exception, fleeting and unreliable.

Nonsense. Here’s a vigorous wake-up practice designed specifically to remind you that you get to CHOOSE your alignment, your particular “vibe” in the world, every single day, and watch as the world orients itself around THAT (not the other way around). Foundational core work, hip releases, swirls and loops and warriors, all meant to dissolve nonsense conditioning and fatalistic “survivalist” thinking, and replace them with the vigorous and the alive.

Will doing this class every day make you a happier, nicer person, beloved by all? Of course not. But maybe, just maybe, a little less whiny.

Morning Badass Flow

Mark Morford

Not your typical wake-up flow.

Call this one a semi-vigorous, whole-body call to full consciousness, by way of a reverential bow to Ganesha, the keeper/protector of liminal states, the "betwixt and between," AKA that sweet, supple zone you hover in just upon waking, right after the dream-state but BEFORE the madhouse swirl of your day's tasks, roles and melodramas swarm forth.

It's not for the passive. Morning Badass targets the hips, shoulders, a bit of core, a bit of fire (agni), deep breath-work, always shifting the gaze INWARD, with devotion, all in service of keeping the mind quiet, the emotions slightly less whiny, and your whole being more available to what IS, without the incessant churn of toxic distraction.

Damn fine way to start the day, really. Jai Ganesha!
