Introducing a brand new segment to Ponytail Journal, Ponytail Culture Club, where we review specially selected films, novels, podcasts, and art that have been curated just for you. Kick off is the raddest kung fu film, ’Deadly China Doll’ starring our martial arts hero, Angela Mao.
In the Ponytail space, we are over the moon to hear news of mindfulness taking root in the garment industry. Our friends at Heddels have shared a recent video they made about their visit to a ’post-consumer-waste’ recycling plant in Karachi, Pakistan, that transforms used denim jeans into new cotton fibers.
This is an exploration of that yucky business called anxiety and how to set yourself on a beautiful, yet mysterious pathway to self exploration with yoga. Ponytail friend and yogi Yuki Matsui will guide you through a sun salutation: the start-line to the most powerful tool to self recognition, and self acceptance.

None are better, worse, or worth more than the other, but all are the mysteries of experience that we can enjoy everyday.

We are kicking off the new year with our kick-start guide to composting, the most rewarding thing you can set up for your home.
Lauren sheds light on some very sensible life hacks for creating the zennest home studio. If you work from home, you will understand the difficulty in separating your work life from home life. Drawing a clear line between the two can make your work hours far more productive, and at the same time, the rest of your day much more peaceful. After all, the two need to be in perfect balance so that you can recharge your mind in your time off to be as productive as possible at work. Make sense?
