Inspired by the practice of yoga, and clean, active, plant-based living, all Niyama products are vegan, non-GMO and made in Canada.Free from gluten, soy and sugar with no artificial colours, flavours, sweeteners or preservatives.
नियमliterally means positive duties or observances. In Indian Yoga tradition, Niyamas are recommended activities and habits for healthy living, spiritual enlightenment and a liberated state of existence. In short, Niyamas are good habits!
Niyama benefits your health from head to toe, supporting an active lifestyle and nourishing your overall well-being.
We can sum up our philosophy in a word – Nourish. We believe in nourishing your whole self – your body, your mind, your soul. To us, that is the essence of self-care. And we’ve got a hunch that you believe in that too.
Self-care starts with good habits – or Niyamas if you will.
Nourishing beings with a whole food diet – heavy on the plants, low in sugar and anything processed. You may be vegan or vegetarian, or you may be simply trying to incorporate more plants and reduce your animal consumption. All are welcome here. No dogma and no preaching. As Michael Pollan says, “Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.”
Next comes mindful movement. Whether that is yoga, Pilates, barre, weight training, running, spin,HIIT, or long walks in nature, mindful movement gives us so much – a calmer mind, a happier, kinder soul, and a leaner, healthier body with better mobility and strength. Numerous studies have shown how beneficial it is incorporate movement and exercise into our lives – at least 20 minutes a day is recommended.
Good quality sleep and enough of it, is so crucial to self-care, and so many of us are not getting the needed 7-9 hours of good, deep sleep that we need to function at our best. And everything is just harder without good sleep.
Managing stress is also key. Creating niyamas that help you deal with and lower your stress levels has to be part of any good self-care routine – because stress is pretty much unavoidable, so having strategies to manage it goes a long way towards feeling good.
That’s where Niyama comes in. Professional quality natural health products that are made in Canada, plant-based, and inspired by yoga and clean, active living. Natural wellness solutions to help you move better, sleep better, and live better.
We mean authentic gratitude, not just good manners. Feeling thankful and appreciative of all that we have received in life, and all that has brought us to where we are now (even the hard stuff) is an important part of self-acceptance. And experts have found that practicing gratitude is positively linked to greater happiness and well-being.
Real-self-care, not just as a justification for over-indulging in online shopping or spa visits. (Ok, occasionally guilty!) It’s easy to neglect taking care of ourselves because our lives are so busy, and self-sacrifice and overwork have achieved such “badge” status, that taking time out feels totally like slacking. But self-care isn’t slacking - it's crucial – and it’s not a reward, it’s a must. Eat well, prioritize sleep, go for a walk outside, do yoga, spend time with people you love, and learn to say no.
Being honest in what we do and say, practicing full-disclosure, and using clear communication. We commit 100% to list each and every ingredient contained in Niyama Yoga Wellness – everything.
Canadian founded, owned and operated. Our wellness products are made in Canada and all our supplements are licensed by Health Canada. We believe in the Canadian values of openness, respect, compassion, willingness to work hard, being there for each other, and searching for equality and justice.
To ourselves, to family, friends, strangers, animals, and our planet. Kindness is contagious – each act of kindness creates a ripple that moves outward, wider and wider, farther and farther. Kind is the new cool.
Every single human life has equal value. Period.
Such an over-used word, but what does it really mean? To us it starts with quality ingredients – the best we can source, then Professional grade, made-in-Canada, GMP manufacturing processes – in a properly inspected, state of the art facility licensed by Health Canada, with each product scrupulously verified using strict controls, and then tested with stringent quality assurance methods right to the end of each product’s expiry date. What does this mean to you? It means that you can trust these products, and every single ingredient in them to be safe and beneficial for your health until the end of its expiry date. That’s quality at Niyama.
To us, innovation is about providing better solutions to existing or emerging needs – with the goal of improving the lives of everyone who uses Niyama products – on and off the mat. We promise to keep improving our current products when new ingredients or studies become available, and to continue seeking out new ways to nourish and support your wellness, now and in the future.
So much of what we know about natural healing has been passed down through centuries, generation to generation, in the form of Traditional Medicine. Be it Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Aboriginal, or Traditional Herbal medicine, there is so much value in these tried and true remedies – and so little in the way of side effects that it just makes sense to make them part of your own wellness regimen. Nature is powerful. Respect to the Mother.
NIYAMA IS A PROUD MEMBER OF 1% FOR THE PLANET
1% for the Planet is a member-based nonprofit organization where businesses all over the world commit to donating 1% of their annual sales — not profit… sales! — to environmental nonprofit organizations. These organizations work on issues that focus on bettering the planet like climate advocacy, food policy, wildlife restoration, and much more. Through active and engaging partnerships between businesses and nonprofits, this global network puts their money where their mouth is.
Which means consumers do, too. Every time an individual buys a product that sports the 1% for the Planet logo, a portion of that product’s proceeds go towards protecting and rejuvenating Mother Earth.
NIYAMA + 1% FOR THE PLANET
Niyama is all about wellness and creating natural products to help us move better, sleep bette and live better. But without a healthy planet to live on, our own healthy habits start to feel myopic, and disconnected from the whole picture. As a brand, we use only the most recyclable packaging possible, with the least footprint. And we are committed to offsetting that footprint too - by giving back 1% of all our revenue - whether we profit or not - and partnering with non-profits in Canada to help improve the health of our planet.
Niyama is proud to help support the work of New Leaf Foundation, a Canadian charity dedicated to making yoga and its benefits accessible to underserved communities
