For the yogi and mediators in your life. The mala, an ancient meditation tool, can be used to count and follow the breath, chants or mantras. It helps us quiet the mental chatter, focus and bring attention to our minds and have a keen appreciation for all that is.

With quotes like "Only through the heart can you touch the sky~ Rumi" engraved on the bangles, Mindful Necessities Companion Bangles let your loved ones be reminded all day of the intentions they would like to keep in their hearts.

Loving to live in sync with the elements, Sonja can often found wandering (when she able to escape the city) in the forest, mountains or by the ocean taking in the sights, sounds and atmosphere.

This passion is a driving force behind Zen Nomad and she feels that clothing should be mindfully made, considering the planet, the people who make the garments and the ones who wear them. So ethical, sweatshop free manufacturing is a vital part of the business as is beautifully fitting garments that are designed to love the body they are on.
