FEATURE STORY/// Sambazon Warrior of Change
Seane Corn

Seane Corn is a modern yogini and renown instructor, her unabashed spirit has caught the eye of media around the country. Seane teaches a dynamic vinyasa flow and leads her students on an inner journey towards personal understanding, but beyond the studio, social change is her mantra.

Seane Corn, Hala Khouri and Suzanne Sterling founded Off the Mat, Into the World (OTM) in 2007. OTM helps individuals take the path of yoga “off the mat and into the world,” expanding the sphere of change outward to local and global communities through leadership trainings, fostering community collaboration, and initiating local and global service projects.

Using their expertise with leadership and positive change, OTM leaders will help us judge the Sambazon Warrior of Change Contest to elect the most realistic and impactful project proposals.

Q & A: ///  
Q and A highlights standout inquiries from customers that we receive each month.

Q:How does Sambazon Create Positive Change?

A: We sure do talk about it a lot. But we’re not all talk, not in the slightest. Sambazon pioneered a sustainable industry around the açaí tree that would improve the livelihoods of over 10,000 local small scale farmers in the Amazon, protect the ecology of 2 million acres of rainforest land, and bring consumers a nutritious product they could feel good about buying in more ways than one.

Honestly, we do believe that a lot of positive change needs to happen to sustain our world in the long run. We started down that path 10 years ago, and now we’re trying to incite positive change within our community as a whole through Warrior Up and the Warrior of Change Contest. Let us know how you Warrior Up!

If you have questions or comments, please email them to Sambazon Co-Founder Ed Nichols at, and he will be in touch!


Even pups can warrior up!

If you're inspired, make your own elaborate headdress using the Sambazon Warrior Up facebook application, post it to our facebook page and you might just end up on next month's Zona Sul.

The Warrior of Change contest was recently featured in Elephant Journal and Treehugger. Our nutritionist Ashley Koff was also featured talking about açaí on the Huffington Post and with New Hope media.
Sambazon is the largest vertically integrated supplier and marketer of Açaí products, controlling every step of the manufacturing process to ensure sustainable and organic origin of the fruit as well as the highest level of quality, nutrition and taste.

Zona Sul is the area in Rio where Açaí became popular with the local surfers, jiu jitsu fighters and capoeristas in the mid to late 90's. The traditional Rio-Bowl became the ultimate way to start the day by fueling up before a workout. Word travels fast and today Açaí is becoming a dietary staple for health conscious people all over the planet. For more information, go to:
