We had the good fortune of connecting with Shira Yehezkel and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Shira, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
YOGA NEST – Enlighten the path to spirituality for people who are not familiar with the different aspects of spirituality (meditation, yoga, mudras, sound healing, tarot etc). Especially during these difficult times, to show people the light and the way they can get heal themselves by implementing these techniques on a daily basis – heal themselves to heal the world. Another project I’ve been working on is – THE CRYSTAL BAZAAR – Beauty & Wellness Treasures Made Of Divine Timeless Gemstones For Conscious Humans. This brand was created in order to educate people about sustainable beauty and wellness products made of high-quality gemstones. These crystals are beneficial for beauty purposes in addition to the fact that these products are working the vibrations of the different stones and also on color therapy when using them on a daily basis.

What should our readers know about your business?
1. Yoga Nest – this project is a community non – profit project. This project was created to enlighten people about spirituality. This project nourishes my soul every time I tap into each subject I am talking about since these things really remind me what is important in our lives and that are so many different ways to improve our everyday lives. understand ourselves better and what matters the most. It expands my mind every time I dig and investigate into each subject more and more each time. the fact that this project can change even one individual’s life is huge for me. Giving back to the community and riding the flow of the universe in terms of knowledge and energy exchange is unfolding so many magical things in my life. Knowing that I can affect people for the better and by that, I help to make the world a better place is really satisfying and that what drives me to keep doing this project. 2. The Crystal Bazaar – This is a beauty and wellness gemstones for conscious humans. The idea to start this gemstone brand actually came to me in a dream. I woke up with this enlightenment that i need to start this crystal brand as a more tangible product to help change people’s lives. with these high-quality gemstones, people can cleanse and recharge their body and soul by opening themselves to these frequencies. This brand contains a beauty line gemstones products for both men and women. These products are reusable and sustainable and made of high-quality gemstones. After testing these products with different healers and modern doctors I can say that in terms of beauty also have anti-aging benefits and helps to improve the facial skin. in addition by using these gemstones as therapeutic products , since each stone has different qualities and benefits, it can affect the mood and improve the energetical balance within our mind, body and soul. in addition to that these stones are working also on a color therapy level. since each color affects our mood subconsciously. This brand also consists of a jewelry line made of high-quality gemstones mixes with silver sterling pieces, This brand was created in order to raise awareness regarding crystals and the way it can benefit our lives. make people feel beautiful inside and out. starting a new brand from scratch is not an easy task. it is really important to enjoy the process and the path you are walking not just the final goal. the road to success is an inseparable part of the final outcome. it is super important to accept the challenges that come in your way as a lesson, and grow from each challenge. I always try to follow my intuition when it comes to make business and personal decisions. I often meditate before actually making a decision. When i meditate i allow myself the headspace i need and the clarity to open the portal of inspiration and inner intuition. it never fails me. Also when you are doing the thing that you truly love doing it never feels lie actual work and i always approach my tasks in the most fun way possible. I am open to learn about new things and mistakes every single day to make myself a better person and my businesses best as possible.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I am currently living in Bali for the past year and a half. If a friend will come visit me I will start with my home town Canggu – starting the morning with yoga sessions and meditation in Samadhi or Body Factory, taking a sauna after and ice bath to energize the body before getting a delish breakfast in one of my favorites vegan cafe”s in the area.- The Secret Spot. Then we will chill at the black sand beach and take a dip in the ocean. After chilling at the beach we will go have lunch and pool chill at Yema Kitchen – a Mediterranean restaurant with a pool – super nice. A massage at the E-space spa. and shopping on Batu Balong. then we will go out to the brewery to have a good tap beer, good music and food at Black Sand brewery.
