Tell us a little about yourself
Name: Ika Dewi, I am 37 years old, I am Balinese, originally from Tabanan regency, an hour away from Seminyak area where I live now with my husband and son. I don’t really have one favourite place for travel , I enjoyed all the different places I visited, and of course Bali is always a favourite, nothing better than home :-)
When did you discover your passion for yoga?
I have been going to yoga studio once in a while since more than 5 years, but really into yoga in the last 2 years.
How has yoga changed you/your life?
The most benefits I feel from doing yoga is I am definitely feel stronger and more flexible (of course), surprisingly (I did not believe this before) I am more in control of my thought and my emotion, I feel more calm.
What is your greatest passion?
Currently, yoga it is :-)
Why are you a Milochie ambassador?
I love Milochie’s eco friendly concept and how the brand source the materials for the products. Every company should apply this in their daily operation, and treat their employees fairly.
How do you #LiveFairBuyFair in your everyday life?
Whenever possible I try to use locally produce daily consumption for my family, for example I usually buy groceries in local market with small local vendor where they source their goods in a locally grown farm, instead of going supermarket, but of course for certain things I still need to go to supermarket.
What does #LiveFairBuyFair mean to you?
I think I can translate this into living fairly for the environment, try to re-use or re-cycle things, and if we need to, we better buy goods from a company that is applying this re-use/ re-cyle concept in their process.
What is your motivation for being an advocate for conscious clothing?
to spread awareness that good quality clothing can also come from a company that is not only fashion concious but also eco friendly and ethically made.
What’s your favorite yoga pose?
wow I have many :-) When I first started yoga I really wanted to do splits, now full splits come quite easilly for me with minimum warm up, other than splits I love Natarajasana/dancer pose, but this needs quite a warm up :-)
Who is your favorite person to do yoga with?
Ok, I have a few but I like to do yoga with Dewi and Thika, they’re my yoga buddies, yoga always fun with them.
What’s a fun fact about you, that most people don’t know?
hhmmm…. first impression of others about me usually they think I am a quiet person, but actually once we know a bit more I can be quite adventurous and like to try spontanious acts.
