For January we are highlighting Liana as our Wolf of the Month. Inspired by expressing her true colors and sustainable living, Liana embodies everything that our Wolfpack stands for.
Where are you from, where do you live, and what do you do?
My name is Liana and I’m originally from Ukraine, but most of my life I have lived in Asia: Pakistan, China, South Korea. Since 2019 I live in the USA. I found my passion for yoga here and I currently work as a yoga instructor and an abstract artist.
What led you to join the Wolfpack?
Sustainability means a lot to me. Supporting local sustainable brands has always been part of my yoga mentality and my sustainable living journey. But honestly, it was so easy to fall in love with fun Wolven patterns and beautiful colors. That was the major turning point for me.
What’s the best part about being a Wolven Ambassador for you?
Absolutely love the Wolven Ambassador community that we have here. Meeting new interesting and like-minded people, that are on a similar path as me, makes me feel full. Ahahaha. Also, those discounts for ambassadors really help.
What is your favorite print and/or style?
Oh… there are so many. I would probably go with Jasmine set though. This magical blue color makes my blue eyes stand out even more and gives them a lighter sky blue look.
How does wearing Wolven make you feel?
When I wear Wolven I feel empowered and confident. Finally found a brand that I can express my true colors with. And depending on my mood I can always switch those colors. Especially with those 2-4 way tops.
What does sustainability mean to you?
For me, it means to use the resources of a planet in moderation. As Yoga Sutras teach us about 8 limbs of Yoga, the first 5 Yamas incorporate Brahmacharya. Brahmacharya means - moderation. Fulfilling your needs in moderation and not being guided by your greed means living sustainably for me.
When or where do you feel most connected to nature?
I feel the most connected to nature when I'm grounded. This feeling can come when I sit on the ground and meditate; when I walk barefoot on the fresh grass or soil; when I close my eyes and listen to the sounds of nature; or when I smell trees, flowers, and earth; There are so many ways to connect with nature and my 5 senses help me with that the most.
What inspires you?
Nature. Music. Beauty. Kindness. Views. Smells. Rain. Other people. Change. It can be anything. When you are full within, inspiration is your daily companion.
How do you envision the future of our world?
I see our Planet transitioning to the times where we as humans become more centered, sensitive, awake. As we pay more attention to ourselves: our feelings and our dreams, our “wants” and our true “needs”, we will start giving more love to ourselves. And once we are at that place of inner peace and self-love, hopefully, we will want to be more loving and kind to our planet as well.
How do you create your content?
I love to travel a lot, to see new places and try new things. And once I see something beautiful I naturally want to take a picture of it. This is how it all started for me… I started taking lots of pictures and then got a need to share them with the world.
Why should people join the Wolfpack?
I don’t think everyone should join the Wolfpack. But if your core values align with Wolven and you want to be that difference in this world, if you want to make new like-minded friends and feel their support, then this could be a great place to start.
