Dedicated yogini Ada Hung believes that performance wear should also be fun and fashionable. Her company Balini Sports delivers. In firefly pose (titibhasana), Kate Hinkens is wearing the Aime Yoga Bra in Stone and the Diva Leggings in black and stone. The Diva Leggings’ stirrup bottom keeps the pants stable in any position and prevents bunching as you flow through a vinyasa or other sequence. Balini Sports’ four-way stretch non-see-through fabrics are made with eco-responsible low-waste technologies allowing you to wear your commitment on your sleeve—or ankle. Kate is also wearing a mala from one of the gorgeous designs produced by Mala Collective.
Felicia Tomasko has spent more of her life practicing Yoga and Ayurveda than not. She first became introduced to the teachings through the writings of the Transcendentalists, through meditation, and using asana to cross-train for her practice of cross-country running. Between beginning her commitment to Yoga and Ayurveda and today, she earned degrees in environmental biology and anthropology and nursing, and certifications in the practice and teaching of yoga, yoga therapy, and Ayurveda while working in fields including cognitive neuroscience and plant biochemistry. Her commitment to writing is at least as long as her commitment to yoga. Working on everything related to the written word from newspapers to magazines to websites to books, Felicia has been writing and editing professionally since college. In order to feel like a teenager again, Felicia has pulled out her running shoes for regular interval sessions throughout Southern California. Since the very first issue of LA YOGA, Felicia has been part of the team and the growth and development of the Bliss Network.
