Dylan Lauren, Founder and CEO of Dylan’s Candy Bar On Imagination, Innovation, and Inspiration

Nearly two decades ago my  next guest pioneered creating the world’s largest candy store, confectionery emporium and lifestyle brand, Dylan’s Candy Bar. Dylan Lauren merged her love of art, fashion and pop culture with candy and has innovated the way we see and experience candy today. Her story is empowering and inspiring as she pursued her lifelong dream to do what she loves. She transformed her creative vision into a reality and continues to innovate every day.

If you haven’t already been, Dylan’s Candy Bar transports you to a modern day version of Willy Wonka’s factory from the moment you enter with its pop art installations—such as the iconic oversized lollipop tree, candy cane columns, dripping chocolate shelves, kaleidoscopic candy wallpaper and candy-embedded staircases— even I can’t resist.

In addition to thousands of edible treats and activities, there are also candy-inspired lifestyle products. From stationery to technology, toys, jewelry to handbags, scented body lotions to sweaters. There are Ice Cream & Dessert Parlor, Candy Cocktail Bar and Party Rooms offering a wide variety of themed events for all ages

Since its inception and flagship opening in New York City, Dylan’s Candy Bar has expanded to US locations such as Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami and East Hampton. Also in luxury boutiques, department stores, and premium hotels nationally and internationally. Dylan’s Candy Bar plans to continue expanding worldwide.

Dylan’s love of candy paralleled by her passion to help animals of all kinds.  She launched Dylan’s Candy Barn, a platform with the mission is to help every animal lead a happy life and find a home-sweet-home by hosting adoption events, granting funds to rescue organizations, and creating awareness campaigns.

And last but not least, ever since I have known Dylan, which is probably also nearly two decades, she has been super athletic, into fitness and training and followed an incredibly healthy diet mixed with candy, of course!

Fueled by exercise, fitness, and her love of candy, Dylan is all about balance and always has been.

On this episode of Marni on the Move, Dylan and Marni met up at  her newly designed office to reconnect and sync up about everything from our shared love of animals, being a founder and  entrepreneur and the innovative Dylan’s Candy Bar, her current fitness “go-to” and her adorable children Cooper Blue and Kingsley Rainbow.

Eddie Stern on Yoga, Ganesh, and Saving the Elephants

30 years ago today a NYC Greenwich Village native and Punk Rocker left his retail day job selling records at the iconic Bleecker Bobs to study yoga and pursue his teacher training degree in India. Upon his return to New York, he opened a studio that changed the NYC and Global Yoga landscape forever.

His name is Eddie Stern.

Today Eddie is a world renowned yoga teacher, highly respected thought leader, entrepreneur, author, and recently, a  mobile app innovator.

He is the co-founder of Ashtanga Yoga New York, The Brooklyn Yoga Club, and The Broome Street Temple with his wife and Yoga teacher, Jocelyn Stern. He is also Co-Founder of Namarupa Magazine with Robert Moses and teamed up with Deepak Chopra and Moby  to create his new app, The Breathing App.

Eddie began teaching yoga in 1989 at a time where there were very few yoga studios in NYC and it was not a very popular mainstream practice. Yoga catered to a culture of people that were interested in pursuing the spiritual aspects of their lives.  Not very asana or physically focused. It was no frills, glitz, or glamour. People didn’t “drop in” to take a class. It was a very different world compared to today where there are tons of studios.

Eddie studied with yoga legend and Ashtanga Yoga Founder, Guru Sri K. Pattahbi Jois from 1991-2009 and brought his teachings to NYC which quickly gained notoriety amongst popular celebrities, musicians, and yogi’s.  Eddie has expanded from his original one room studio to a beautiful townhouse in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn that is the home to Brooklyn Yoga Club and Ganesha Temple, a B+B for guests to immerse themselves and experience the culture, and a café with vegan, healthy snacks, teas, elixirs and coffee.

Eddie and I sync up about Yoga, Ashtanga, Ganesh, and his mission to raise awareness and funds to help save the elephants through the Knot On My Planet campaign which supports the work of The Elephant Crisis Fund.

If you want to make a donation or learn more Eddie has a wonderful blog post with additional information on the AYNY website:  http://ayny.org/category/yoga/. There are only 415,000 elephants left in the world, and they are being slaughtered at a rate of 30,000 per year. If this is allowed to continue, we could be the last generation to ever see an elephant in the wild.  Throughout 2018, Eddie will be going around the world performing Ganesh Pujas to spread the awareness of the plight of the mighty and majestic elephants, whose existence on this planet is being imperiled through poaching. While pujas are always free, they are accepting donations at the end of these special pujas, and all of the money collected will be donated to Knot On MY Planet, which supports elephant protection in Africa and the end of the ivory trade worldwide. These pujas are being performed, this year, in Moscow, Stockholm, Chengdu, London, Amsterdam, Milan, India, Buenos Aires, and Tel Aviv.
