What's the best thing that's ever come out of your yoga class? For Swedish design duo Anna Engellau and Emelie Lindgren it was an entire activewear brand. Made from a premium recycled polyester (think 53% less energy and 54.6% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than regular polyester) the range also features swim and surf pieces.
Probably the most famous brand of the bunch, Lululemon was founded way back in 1998. After taking his first yoga class, founder Chip Wilson had a problem: why was cotton clothing the only option for such surprisingly sweaty workouts? He drew from his passion for technical athletic fabrics and the rest is history.
Our favourite brand in the print stakes, SukiShufu was founded by banker turned housewife turned designer Caroline White. Before all this, she had represented Australia in gymnastics and was constantly frustrated by the lack of style and substance in her activewear, and that's how SukiShufu was born.
When you consider the amount of stretching involved, ballet and yoga aren't so different. With this in mind, Pepper & Mayne offer yoga clothes in a ballet style with a baby soft finish - what more could you want?
If you never compromise on style even when you're sweating profusely, No Ka'Oi is probably your new favourite yoga brand. Their latest collection was inspired by futurism (an Italian social and artistic movement from the 20th Century that focused on dynamism, speed and technology), so their pieces might also make you feel all intellectual.
Yogi Peace Club was founded by qualified Yoga Instructor Emma Barr. Having grown up by the beach in Australia, she credits her upbringing with what inspired her to create the brand. She offers a 20% discount to any Yoga Teachers wishing to make an order.
