Before i hear anyone complaining, i’d just like to say that i do not agree with splurging lots of $$$ on something as trivial as yoga outfits [insert here name of really expensive yoga clothing brand]…but i also do understand that it is nice to wear something different…and whilst there is a HUGE variety to choose from in the US, there really isn’t that much choice here in Italy.
So i thought to just point out places that have funky outfits that can be worn to yoga class, something that isn’t your usual black or dark blue or grey….yoga makes you happy, colours make you happy…so why not brighten up your yoga wardrobe? 🙂
Anyway, today will be H&M – they’ve recently come out with their own line of yoga clothes…some of their gym stuff can also be used for yoga mind you, so check ’em out: feel the fabric, and see what you think! Their prices are pretty affordable, as all other H&M clothes, so price wise that’s a def plus, however i cannot vouch for quality….i am yet to check their stuff out. If you have, let me know your thoughts – did you like it? did their clothes work for you? We want feedback! 🙂
Here is a range of items that i thought were cute for yoga class 🙂
* Please note that some of these items may no longer be available to buy online and/or in-store.
I would def suggest going into the shop and trying their stuff out as opposed to ordering straight from their website, when the price is low, quality is usually dubious…not always, but it can be, so be careful!
And if you were interested in seeing what else they have, here’s the link: http://www.hm.com/gb/subdepartment/LADIES?page=3&Nr=4294965382#page=0&Nr=4294965382
Next, i’ll be checking out Oysho – stay tuned! x
Christiane has been practicing yoga for over 10 years. Her yogic journey began in 2000 as a student of Swami Nirmal (now at the Satyananda Centre in London) at the Fitness First gym in Kensal Rise, London. She experienced various teachers in different Fitness Firsts in Central London and around Clapham Junction before changing gyms and meeting Alexa Kho at LA FItness in Piccadilly Circus, London. Christiane attended Alexa's Anusara classes as well as her workshops.
In January 2011 she enrolls in a 200hr Vinyasa Flow Teacher Training course with Rebecca Ffrench at YogaLondon. Vinyasa Flow is a modern form of yoga that comes from Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and follows Sri K Pattabhi Jois. She quickly become passionate of this discipline and wants to deepen her knowledge; this brings her to meet and attend many workshops with Stewart Gilchrist, Shiva Rea, John Scott, Danny Paradise...all very famous teachers around the world. Being in the presence of such teachers is a significant experience for Christiane, in terms of her yogic journey, personal transformation and growth as well as understanding of yoga.
After 11years in London, she moves to Milan to deepen and continue her journey. In Milan she teaches privately (1:1 and group classes) as well as in various yoga and dance centers. Milan is where her love for Ashtanga Vinyasa deepens and grows, bringing her to attend workshops with Lino Miele, Sharath Jois and most recently Kino MacGregor...all original students of Guruji, Sri K Pattabhi Jois. All of this culminates with a long awaited and long overdue trip to India, the birthplace of Yoga. Here Christiane deepens her practice and knowledge of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga by doing a 200hr Ashtanga Vinyasa TTC with Yogi Kamal Singh at Tattvaa Yogashala in Rishikesh India. After the monthlong course, her travels take her around India practicing with various other world renown teachers, namely with Sri V. Sheshadri in Mysore and with Rolf and Marci Naujokat in Goa.
In 2013 Christiane decides to embark on yet another yoga adventure, this time in Aerial Yoga! The course was divided into two weekends: level I in April and level II in June, after which she becomes a qualified Aerial Yoga teacher.
