After Times Square in New York, now it is up to Sao Paulo, in Brazil to bring together thousands of people around the Yoga theme. “Yoga pela Paz” means “Yoga for Peace” and it has the objective to promote a healthier and balanced lifestyle, raising awareness of all the benefits that yoga has for your mind and body.
Workshops for yoga teachers and people with advanced levels will be held during the event, but many free activities, seminars and conferences will be available for new Yoga adepts too. If you have never tried yoga before, don’t worry, this is your chance to get together and find out about the discipline. The event will run from 13th to 19th August 2012. For more information and the complete agenda from the event, please check the website Yoga pela Paz.

This week I have discovered a very creative Brazilian artist designer from Rio de Janeiro. Some fashion magazines call Mana Bernardes ‘the jewellery magician’. She became famous for transforming trash in to fashion.
Made with recycled PET bottles
For 10 years she has been using recycled materials to design and produce amazing jewellery. Beautiful necklaces, bracelets, hair clips and other accessories made of PET bottles, marbles, rope and even hairpins! I love it so much that I have pinned some fantastic items in to my Pinterest board under ‘Fashion’.
Mana worked and exposed her creations in Paris, Los Angeles, New York and many cities in Brazil. Her creativity is fresh, trendy and full of joy! She also writes poems. Her book ‘Mana e Manuscritos’ was published by the editor ‘Aeroplano’. Very active Mana also gives conferences, works with some Brazilian NGO’s teaching kids to make jewelry with recycled materials.
Unfortunately her website is in Portuguese, but the link below shows an archive of some of her amazing creations. I just love it!
