For us, a new year, mean a new me. .. and how do we set up a new "me", and new "I" for 2022.
1). I set my objectives of the year. What am I looking to achieve and change by the end of 2022? What are my goals and what am I gonna do to make this happen?I write them and I will read them through out the year
2) I set my yearly affirmation. For me this year, it is " Perseverance"
3) I check my numerology. It is the science of number to define the overall theme of your year based on your date of the birth. It is so True, More info here
4) I remove and burn all old energies I don't want for 2022. I literally put everything on a piece of paper and burn it in my toilets.
5) I set a one month protocol where I put a sentence together which I repeat every day to wire my brain to a new pattern and new goals.
Whats you yearly rituals to set a foot in the new year ? would love to get yours?

Well everything! With our brand over the years, we have developed a personal connection to being a woman, to our place in society, to running your own business, to our connect with ourselves and our bodies.
We felt more and more drawn to a research to ourselves. Before sharing with others, it became with a special journey into our own self.
From India, to Bali, to France, to Costa Rica, we traveled the world for our swimwear and along the way, we learned from teachers, healers, spiritual guides and all incorporated these knowledges to our life.
Our passion for personal evolution, for the evolution of the humanity has led us to share with other women, others who want like us to growth, to evolve.
June 19th - 26th 2020 we finally after one year of preparation, after quarantine, after confinement, after a sanitary crisis, after having our planes tickets canceled, despite all, we launched!
We catered to a beautiful group of women coming from France and Switzerland for 7 days in the French retreats.
We spend a week of daily yoga, meditation, workshops around the theme of divine feminine. It was a very human experience.
