Happy #DigitalSisterhood Wednesday and Digital Sisterhood Month 2013!
The Digital Sisterhood Network is proud to announce the 2013 Digital Sisters of the Year. They represent the #DigitalSisterhood 100. Each Digital Sister of the Year truly embodies the theme of Digital Sisterhood Month 2013: “Fierce Living: Too Bold for Boundaries.” To learn more about them, check out the #DigitalSisterhood 100 list below.
The list is organized into seven categories: Creativista, Empirista, Empowerista, Enchantista, Evangelista, Flowista, and Lifestylista. The categories are based on the Digital Sisterhood Leadership Archetypes.
- A Creativista is a woman who gives birth to creativity (art, books, films, products, services, and webisodes).
- An Empirista is a woman who thinks of herself as CEO of her own corporation, ME, Inc.; maintains an entrepreneurial mindset; and gives birth to ideas and transforms them into businesses, economies, institutions, networks, and organizations that add value to people’s lives.
- An Empowerista is a woman who creates and curates content, shares information and experiences, connects with others and establishes positive relationships, and builds and participates in communities that empower her and others.
- An Enchantista is a woman who taps into the magic of her spirit as she focuses her energy, opens her heart, trusts her intuition, embraces her fears, and shares her gifts in service to others.
- An Evangelista is a woman who supports and advocates a philosophy, a values system, a lifestyle, a cause, or a campaign that improves her life and others’ lives.
- A Flowista is a woman who unplugs from her digital life and tech devices for periods of time so she can recharge and take care of herself; and encourages women to unplug from their digital lives by incorporating mindfulness and self-care practices.
- A Lifestylista is a woman who lives her life as a work of art; expresses it through her passion for beauty, entertaining, fashion, food, home décor, personal style, and travel; and inspires others to live their lives as works of art.

- Class Description (text from TranquilSpace.com): This class incorporates both yin yoga and yang (or active) yoga. Yin yoga focuses on passive asanas with breath work and meditation to create a very deep, integrated and satisfying practice. Complementary to active vinyasa, yin yoga targets the deep, dense connective tissues of the body — the tendons, ligaments and cartilage — which are difficult to energize and open. The yin postures focus on the hips, pelvis, lower back, and knees, helping the body remain supple at its core. The yin portion of the class is followed by a more active yang portion. Suitable for anyone interested in taking his or her practice to a renewed level of awareness and stillness, both inside and out. Appropriate for all levels.
