Finding Your Flow with Sian Fujikawa

Sian in Double Faced Restore on the Couch



Two weeks into a fresh year, and we’re already super into this whole leisure thing: saying no to burnout and unrealistic expectations; saying yes to the balance between well-structured days and spontaneous, newfound interests. And who better is there to chat about balance, self-love, and discovering one’s passion with than our favorite certified yogi, businesswoman, and mom, Sian Gordon Fujikawa.

From the hideaway of her Los Angeles studio—and dressed in her comfy-cozy Restore Double Faced favorites, of course—Fujikawa, who’s also the owner/founder of Venice Beach’s coveted Love Yoga, tells us how she’s finding her flow in 2021: from balancing entrepreneurship with motherhood to carving out time for ritualistic self-care.



Sian Outdoors



Current Mood?

Chauncey Gardiner

What are you leaving in 2020?

Resistance to reality

What does your daily meditation practice look like?

My dad taught me to do it at the same time every day. If you do the same thing every day for a few days you start to create a habit. It’s simple in that way.



Sian in Otium Tan Restore



There’s no dress code for meditation; how do you show up so that you’re comfortable?

Usually in pajamas

Outside of yoga, how do you carve out time for yourself?

I surf. Outside of my family, being in the ocean is the only thing I need.

How does yoga change your state of mind?

Yoga reminds me that everything and everyone is connected. When I think my problems matter or that something is a big deal, I realize that it isn’t when I practice.

Best music to flow to?

African Jazz

How do you find balance between being a mom, teaching, and running a business?

Stay present. I try not to think about work when I’m with my daughter and I try to be present at work when I’m there … although I usually am thinking about my daughter.
