Well what do you know? Everyone’s coming out with a fitness range…it’s all the craze now…& so have OVS, an italian cheap clothing brand, much like H&M/TopShop & the likes – anyway, they now have a fitness range too!
I haven’t checked our their fitness range, but if i happen to pass by one of their shops, ill pop in to give you the down-low…i do know they have some funky leggings tho!
Here is some items i thought looked interesting or ok from their fitness range – for more check out: http://www.ovs.it/donna/highlight-concept/fitness
However, i must admit, these aren’t that exciting, esp when i think of what Oysho and H&M and even Bershka now have to offer. So perhaps check out OVS’ leggings range, it’s much more exciting. It says the material is stretchy, but i’m not sure it’s right for yoga, especially for the kind of yoga where you sweat a lot (think Ashtanga or Vinyasa). Anyway, here’s a selection – for more check out: http://www.ovs.it/donna/collezione/leggings
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.
