The addition of yoga back into my life this fall is very welcome. My runners body is tight from endless miles on the trails and roads with a lack of adequate stretching. My mind has been missing the quiet reflection, peace and meditation that yoga provides as well. Their is a yoga studio near my new house that offers classes at many different times of day making it easy to squeeze an hour long class into my schedule and it is a great way to move my body on the days when I am not out training hard for my next running race or triathlon.
As you bend your body through the different yoga poses you need to be able to freely move. Each movement made more comfortable when wearing soft organic fabrics from Soul Flower. Soul Flower is an organic clothing brand that values eco-friendly manufacturing processes as well as the use of materials that are eco friendly, fair trade goods, and even up-cycled goods. Textiles are made from super soft eco-blend (50% organic cotton, 50% recycled plastic) by transforming post-consumer plastic – like soda bottles – into earth-friendly polyester. Low impact dyes ensure a minimal impact on our ecosystem. This Minnesota based company produces much of its clothing and accessory lines in the USA (clothing bears the label Made in The USA) and also has many Fair Trade Certified products as well.
Not only do I love what Soul Flower Organic clothing stands for but also the clothing is beautiful. Each design is made with movement in mind as well as sustainability and best working practices. Soul Flower as a company incorporates many green practices into their business culture. They use eco-friendly shipping materials, recycle, and also share joy in bringing you great products. The clothes that I received are comfortable and I feel good about wearing them because I admire what the company stands for.
Even when I am not doing yoga, sports bras and bralettes are a regular part of my wardrobe because they are so comfortable! The Criss Cross Bralette has a great double strap cross back. Great for yoga but als perfect when paired with all of the open back tops that are currently in style. The geometric print is hand drawn. This bralette is made out of organic Fair Trade fabrics made in India.
These fun cropped leggings are Made in the USA from Organic cotton. The screen printed design is inspired by the festivities at Mardi Gras. These cropped leggings are great for yoga practice and you can throw a skirt on over them afterwards when you head out after class.
Made out of the same soft materials, these headbands are great for class or just for wearing around. I am guessing my daughter might snag mine to wear to school.
Soul Flower offers many other fantastic items on their site including jewelry, recycled bags, clothing for men and kids, and even adorable baby onesies! Please take a peek at the Eco-Friendly goodness offered at Soul Flower
