Home in the East
Home in the East is Owned and Operated by Steph MacLean. A 20 something, born and raised in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. By day, it's business as usual, by night, she attends MBA classes & knit/design/make!
Like many other makers, her hands were always crafting something creative from an early age. However, she did not pick up a ball of yarn until three years ago. She first started knitting for herself and friends. After receiving many compliments, She decided to open her Etsy shop in the fall of 2013. 
She designs simple, modern pieces for the Canadian East Coast-er, but feels very fortunate that others around the world are wearing her knitwear. Her work involves both knitting and crocheting, and each piece she makes is filled with passion and attention to detail.

Krystall MacLeod is the Owner of the Breathing Space Yoga Studio in Sydney. She started her yoga with a playful practice and upon moving back to Cape Breton from Fort McMurray to raise her two little ones Rochlan and Rori she had a vision of opening a studio.  Something drew her to Breathing Space and after meeting with founders Jenny Kierstead and Blair Abbass she knew this is exactly what she wanted to do and bring to the community of Cape Breton.

She is thrilled to be living back home working to help others find a path to a more nourishing and harmonious life style.  Krystall is grateful to witness the process of self discovery and personal develoment from those surrounded by her.  Also trained in pre-natal yoga and stand up paddle board yoga, she is passionate about building a community and creating a welcoming space along with some adventure.

Maritime Mala Movement

The Maritime Mala Movement was born from a desire to create beautifully crafted pieces that inspire mindfulness and fuel change in our community.

 This desire started with a fascination (many moons ago) when Amanda Woody (owner and operator) was that kid in grade school who ordered the rock collections from the book orders- you know the ones she's talking about. Perfect little pebbles! It's not that she didn't love books (still does) but these little stones called to her. She always kept them close by, sensing the energy they gave off, without knowing what their vibrations meant. 

 Fast Forward. She's 'taught' Yoga and worked in the not for profit world for the last few years and have had a longing to bring these two worlds together. What better way to practice the true meaning of Yoga than to share the gift with those in need, and in reality, who can't benefit from a little yoga?

 So this is where her worlds collided (BOOM)- Maitime Mala Movement = Yoga, giving back & sacred stones.

 Each mala is handcrafted with love, care and intention right here in beautiful Nova Scotia. She designs from a place of connection and contemplation- each bead is hand selected with care to ensure the balance of each piece. She uses traditional materials sourced from all over the world and is inspired by people, places and nature's elements, near and far. This movement is not only to bring you inspiring pieces that stir the soul, but also to provide yoga to those in need.  A portion of the funds collected, from every piece, will be donated to maritime women's shelters. These funds will bring yoga & wellness to those on the journey of healing.
