Sinah does not only live this in her everyday life by changing a lot in her household, for example by doing without small things like kitchen roll, cycling a lot, boycotting fast fashion and palm oil, donating regularly and above all shopping in organic supermarkets. She also wanted to bring this awareness to her BodyMindTherapy Studio Kale&Cake, which she runs together with Sophia Thora.
»Sophia and I have four pillars on which we build Kale&Cake and one of them is sustainability. This includes decisions like where the toilet paper comes from, but we also have plants in the studio and no Hindu gods because Kale&Cake is dedicated to Mother Nature.«
And indeed, the studio doesn't seem like the cliché of a yoga studio. The obligatory golden flower of life on the wall is missing, also small Buddha figures or other deities. Instead, a lot of green plants, a lot of wood and a clean but cosy atmosphere. Even the cloakroom, which is separated from the entrance area by a curtain and in which we are sitting right now, radiates this cosiness.
Sinah and Sophia also try different methods to approach sustainable management: »We donate 5% of our teacher training to Cool Earth, we have a monthly charity event, Greenpeace electricity, and when we were allowed to serve tea, we called on our tribe to bring back some tea that they don't need anymore. This may be marginally small, but it inspires people to rethink. And of course we also bring it into our yoga classes.«
