Under The Same Sun

Under The Same Sun met Mandy in the spring of 2015. We had a really nice day hikinig up the Griffith Park. Mandy is a supersweet, warm and open person and we're honored that she is one of Under The Same Sun's ambassadors.

Name / City
Emma Mattson, Sydney/Stockholm

Age:
29

This is me in five sentences:
Yogi with a big fashion interest. During my free time I photograph and blog and spend a lot of time with my family and friends. Bikram yoga is a big part of my life, it's where I get my strength, peace of mind and energy. I love to travel, especially to warm climates where all you need is flip-flops and a bikini.

What encouraged you to begin with yoga?
I was encouraged to begin with yoga when I realised I needed something that helped me escape from everyday stress and something that made me proud and love my body.

What’s your mission as a yogi? What are you trying to reach and why? What is your favorite type of yoga and why?
My favourite type of yoga is Bikram yoga. I think it's the heat that really got me hooked, but also the flow between all the poses, my amazing teachers and the other yogis who inspire me. It is difficult to say what I want to reach with my yoga since it is a practice, and you can practice forever, but I would love to go on a yoga retreat abroad and 'eat, breath and sleep' yoga everyday!

Favorit yoga studio?
Bikramyoga City, on Olof Palmes gatan in Stockholm

What’s the best thing with Under The Same Sun’s collections:
The best thing with Under The Same Suns yoga wear is that the quality is outstanding.
The material breathes and works for any type of yoga.
I usually wear my UTSS yoga legging much more often then just to yoga class because I love the patterns and the fit.
