3 Ways to Bring Holistic Energy into your Career

The Pitaya community is all about bridging the proverbial gap between work and life, in a seamless flow that connects the two. On your quest for wellness and glowing skin- the practices shouldn’t stop and start at home. Many of our community members spend more hours working than tending to personal matters in personal space- so the practices within the workspace should be just as important than that post- yoga deep breath.
