Certified yoga instructor Mary sees the same crisp alignment in a clean room that she does in a well-executed tree pose. Her philosophy links the two practices—neatness and yoga—by relating them to the idea of letting go of one's inefficiencies. She believes that purging the body and mind of disorganized energy can also help people clear their homes of clutter.
Mary's appointments typically begin with an asana yoga routine. After they've identified and rejected stagnant energies within themselves, she and her clients set to work tidying the area in question, whether it's a large living room, a small closet, or the kitchen pantry that houses your bronzed broom collection. At the end of the session, she conducts a visualization meditation exercise to further encourage the streamlining process. Mary applies similar methods when helping clients move or manage their time.
In 1965, Popular Mechanics ran a small classified ad for Brookstone, a new catalog company that packed its pages with functional products and detail-oriented descriptions. Brookstone quickly expanded to meet the high demand for its collection of ?hard-to-find tools,? and opened the door to its first retail location in 1973. Today, Brookstone?s more than 300 nationwide retail locations allow customers to test-drive its ever-growing lineup of interesting products, which range from Bluetooth-enabled massage chairs to power adapters designed for international travelers and their electronic passports. Staying true to its roots as a catalog company, Brookstone houses an even larger selection of products, each waiting patiently to be shipped, on its website.
