wanted to start living a healthy lifestyle but did not know where you could
find the best fitness studio close to your office, or what vitamins are good
for you? After flipping through countless fashion magazines, newspapers, and
lifestyle websites, you discover that the information is sporadic and
the fragmented sources of information, there was also the absence of a single
platform for companies in the health and wellness industry to reach the
INTHELOOP was created. Co-founded by fitness enthusiast Marc Dass and yoga
teacher Theresa Shan, the online portal provides the health and wellness
community with targeted content on services, solutions, and products that
enhances the health and wellness lifestyle.
Marc of INTHELOOP’s mission:
“?T?o build a regional network and community of wellness seekers
and businesses on a single platform and to foster the growth of mindful
success of INTHELOOP platform is supported by SOULSCAPE Mindful Movement event.
Started in 2014, it is one day of yoga, music and dance workshops; the 2015
event attracted 1,300 people.
INTHELOOP grew in readership and reach, Marc realised that a single brand covering
both the online and offline entities would provide a stronger brand identity.
Thus, INTHELOOP has been rebranded to SOULSCAPE portal. The portal continues to
connect Mindful, Motivated, and Savvy individuals who lead the health and
wellness lifestyle, and the event cements this movement that was started by the
SOULSCAPE community has grown with the portal, because the SOULSCAPE team walk
the talk—Marc and his team live the health and wellness lifestyle. Yoga,
meditation, dance, and other activities are some of the activities that form
the team’s weekly fitness routines. Marc himself is
a practitioner of yoga and functional training.
Besides continuously expanding his mind and body with different
fitness and mental regimes, Marc also grows the business and its success by
utilising his time in a mindful and productive way.
the writer on this piece, I looked into the trend of health and wellness, I
realised that as countries become more developed, people’s lifestyle in their
countries changes too. I remember coming across the Environmental Kuznets Curve
in class and found it really similar to this scenario. I adapted the Environmental
Kuznets curve to explains this trend. It states that as peoples per capital
income increases they focus on gaining income over their health up to a point
where their per capital income is high enough that they reach a turning point, pivot
and start to be concern about their health again.
this has lead to the trend in the last few years where the people are starting
to be concern about their health and wellness. Hence as the country becomes
more developed they would be more willing to spend more on staying healthy.
to join the health and wellness movement, and get connected with other active
individuals who live the lifestyle? There is only one destination to be at—SOULSCAPE
