With the World Cup in full swing, you can’t help but notice that Brazilians do know how to have fun. They know how to party, and to be in the moment, to fully enjoy the richness of the cultural occasions, and events.
What else is Brazil known for? The sun. The heat. The beaches. Those toned, and tanned bodies. No wonder one of our hot yoga clothing brands Shakti Activewear (designed and made in Brazil) – the original hot / Bikram yoga apparel – is so wildly popular in Canada and across the world. With their fun prints, high quality, and super comfortable, breathable fabric they use in their clothing, this is definitely the winning option for any hot yogi across Canada.
I first became familiar with the brand in 2006, when I started practicing Bikram Yoga, here in Vancouver. I noticed there was a limited selection of hot yoga outfits available (nope, not even at Lululemon), and I couldn’t find any online store that would ship for free to Canada. Then I came across Shakti Activewear clothing at my yoga studio, and absolutely fell in love with it. There’s nothing like that on the market at that time. Now, 8 years later, I am happy to renew my love vows with Shakti Activewear. Their clothing line has been expanded, and we are proud to offer a wide range of their yoga shorts, yoga pants, and bras in our store today.
My most recent “most favourite” is the Lukshmi Short:
Features: Double layered, scrunch waistband, contrast color flat seam stitching, high rise
Intended use: yoga, dance, Zumba, pole fitness, running, walking
Material: Coolform Light (Coolform light contains all the wonderful benefits that coolform fabric has, without the weight. In other words, it is thinner and is meant specifically for heated rooms and hot places. This material is so light and so soft it has often been described as equivalent to the feeling of wearing nothing at all! All prints are made of this material, and there are some styles in black, too. We especially recommend this material for hot yoga, during the summer months, or as an uber comfortable first layer during colder months for your outdoor activities.)
And, of course, Shakti Activewear is not only for Bikram or hot yogis out there! This fitness clothing line is perfect for anyone who is active, and who is, well, ready to put their shakti on!
Namaste. Keep moving. Be… fabulous.
