SAWA Ambassador, Andrea Restivo, is a yoga teacher, wellness advocate, and the founder of The Yoga Nectar.
In February 2019, Andrea traveled to Kenya, embracing the opportunity to become part of the SAWA Life team. While there, she spent quality time with SAWA artisans; getting to know the women on a deep level by adventuring with them through Kibera, connecting with them at the SAWA workshop, and teaching them and their children the practice of yoga.
Andrea's inaugural trip to Kenya was the inspiration for SAWA's sustainable product, the hand-beaded headband. She wanted to continue to create awareness and help the artisans thrive in their community by selling this headband. While It originally started as a headband for yoga, it is versatile, also making a statement as a necklace, bracelet, and hatband.
In reflection of the journey, Andrea says, "It was a blessing for me to be in this community. I felt more at home than ever before. These women are the most powerful, joyous, giving humans I've ever met. And, they loved yoga! That's why I want to contribute to help support this community in every possible way I can."


Dr. Ramani Durvasula is on a mission to demystify and dismantle the toxic influence narcissism has on all of our lives. Dr. Ramani has noticed that often times, the early signs a partner was narcissistic were there right from the very beginning but that we are quick to rationalize these behaviors, ignore them, and give out second, third, and 100th chances. Through this her "pink flag" campaign was born with the primary goal of helping people identify early signs they have entered into a relationship with a narcissistic partner before they are too entrench to make an easy exit.

Highlighting this campaign, SAWA artisans created hand-beaded USB charging cord lanyards in Dr. Ramani's brand colors which help raise awareness about this important issue.
