beeswax2 Have you heard of Big Dipper Beeswax Candles? We currently just stocked up on them because of their beautiful aromatic scent and wonderful beneficial properties. Read on to find out why burning Beeswax is the way go...

beeswax1Beeswax is naturally aromatic, infused with the sweet, subtle scent of honey. Nontoxic and nonallergenic, beeswax candles burn clean and soot free. While burning, they release negative ions, just as seashores or rainstorms do. These negative ions improve air quality by eliminating pollutants and allergens from the air that we breathe.

Beeswax candles are naturally dripless and smokeless, and they tend to have a longer burn time than candles made from other waxes.
beeswax3
Beeswax is 100% natural and a renewable resource that actually cleans the air by emitting purifying negative ions.

Our beeswax is filtered via natural clay process that cleans the wax of impurities, yet allows the wax to retain its inherent color and aroma. Our candles are produced by hand in small batches.

Meet Tim Motte our featured student spotlight!
Tim is a friendly and dedicated yogi that represents All That Matters well

When did you start yoga and what attracted you to the
practice: It took me five years to come to All That Matters, friends kept after me to go, until finally one of my sea kayaking coaches ( a powerful paddler) recommended that I start. I immediately loved it. It has now been about two years!
What is your favorite style of yoga: I love Vinyasa, the challenge of the breathing through the flow. When the two come together, the power is amazing.
Tim MotteWhat other activities do you enjoy: I enjoy Sea Kayaking in many different bodies of water, and walking my dog Lanky!
Favorite sound: The wind of a Noreaster blowing against my house at night...
Least favorite sound: The wail of a crying baby...
Favorite meal: Any kind of hot and spicy chicken curry!
Great Movie or book to recommend?: Full Catastrophe Living by Jon Kabat0Zinn and books by Thich Nhat Hanh.
What keeps you doing yoga: The strength, flexibility and conditioning benefits, but yoga also really allows me to present in the moment, much like the time I spend Sea Kayaking.
Advice to beginners: Take your time to experience a variety of classes and instructors. Once you find a combo that works, try to stay with your commitment to it!
What do you like most about All That Matters: One of the most outstanding assets is the amazing yoga instructors. I have received an incredible depth of instruction that some how continues to match my evolving needs, both on a daily basis as well as for the long haul. Thank you ATM!
