Meet Bianca Alexander
1) Write a six-word memoir to describe yourself.
Emmy-winning Eco-TV Host and Raw/Vegan Yogi.
2) Tell us about your blog.
Conscious Living TV was launched back in 2006 in order to bring positive news about sustainable living, holistic health, spirituality and sustainability to the mainstream. We cover the people, places and pioneers at the forefront of the green movement, from sustainable fashion and design to organic vegetarian cuisine, yoga and meditation to triple bottom line entrepreneurship, green luxury travel and eco-tourism around the globe.
My favorite video post from 2011 is my 30 Day Raw Detox. http://www.consciouslivingtv.com/Videos/The+30+Day+Raw+Food+Detox
3) What is your definition of digital sisterhood?
A circle of women who are connected beyond cyberspace–but aren’t afraid to use technology to communicate and support one another!
4) What is your favorite digital 2011 sisterhood moment or experience?
The call we had last year on social media—such a blessing to connect with such a talented group of women doing amazing things
5) The 2011 theme of Digital Sisterhood Month is ‘Celebrate the 4 Fs of Women’s Health: Feelings, Food, Fitness & Fierce Living.” How have you lived fiercely in 2011?
I prioritized my health and spiritual practice above all things this year–I participated in my first 30 day Raw/Vegan detox and went vegan right afterwards. Then, after teaching yoga informally for nearly three years, this spring I trained for and received my yoga teacher certification. After working hard on being the best person I could be from the inside out, I was rewarded: I was nominated for my second Emmy this year for Soul of Green, one of our original tv programs about people of color in the eco-movement, including issues of environmental justice. In addition, our show Conscious Living TV reached its widest audience ever: taxi cabs in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Kansas City and Las Vegas–with over three million viewers per month!
6) How do you stay positive and maintain peace of mind?
Meditation, yoga, more meditation, a raw/vegan diet, and surrounding myself with lots of positive people who inspire me.
7) What are your favorite healthy foods?
Raw and vegan anything! Lots of salads, green meal shakes/smoothies, rice milk, almond butter (crunchy), and all sprouted foods. www.karynraw.com
8) How do you stay fit?
I stay fit with yoga. I try to practice at least three times a week. Here is a story we recently produced on the benefits of yoga. http://www.consciouslivingtv.com/Videos/The+Yoga+View
9) How are you planning to live fiercely in 2012?
More meditation, more yoga, and launching three new TV shows.
