The Breeze In Your World | Now=Wow

For the last 5 weeks, we've been challenging you to to see the extraordinary in your everyday moments. To allow yourself to be present to the WOW of NOW. Using the lens of yoga, and the lens of your camera, you saw the POP, the PULSE, the SHADE, the GLOW, and most recently the BREEZE hiding beautifully right before your eyes.

You chose to see more in the world around you. And we were moved. Below we have collected a few of our favorite images from last week's Spring giveaway, a challenge to capture the BREEZE.

The Glow In Your World | Now=Wow

This Spring we're challenging you to see the extraordinary in this moment – to find the remarkable hiding right before your very eyes. If we choose to be present to it, NOW has a lot of WOW. So to help inspire you, every week we're giving away Manduka color collections from our Spring Line.

Last week was GLOW, and we were so moved by all the beautiful ways you captured the GLOW in your world that we wanted to share them here – this collection of cool sanctuaries. We hope these inspire you for this week's giveaway, BREEZE.

Now=Wow Giveaway | Breeze The Day

Now=Wow Giveaway | Breeze the Day

The world is in motion. We are in motion. The sand, the waves, our hair, our lessons – nothing is stagnant. The winds of change are blowing, will we choose to build a wall or build a windmill?

Now is a time of transition: we as a community are coming into awareness and connectedness like never before. And there is beauty in our transition. It is gentle, awakening and reminds us that we are alive. Less like a gust, more like a BREEZE.

For the last month, we have been challenging you to be present to the magnificent moments hiding right before your very eyes. To see the WOW of NOW. In our final week, we focus our gaze to BREEZE, a color that speaks to release, refreshment and bright ideas.

Use the lens of yoga, and the lens on your camera, to capture how Now=Wow. See the beautiful BREEZE in your everyday world and you could win the full family of Manduka products in BREEZE, including our new non-traditional prop, the unBLOK.

Share your BREEZE-inspired photo on Instagram or Twitter using tag #NowIsWow, or upload it to the Facebook entry page. For every photo submitted, Manduka will make a donation to Off the Mat, Into the World.

For inspiration, revisit in the SHADE that you created the other week. Then get out there, BREEZE the day and let's fully embody this moment in motion.
