If you had asked me 10 years ago what I wanted to be “when I grew up,” I would have said that I wanted to be a fashion designer in New York. Let’s fast forward through four years at NC State, two internships in NYC, and a 4 month solo trip through Europe. I didn’t want to be a fashion designer anymore. I wanted to share the gift of yoga with others. I wanted to be a yoga teacher! I walked away from what I had been working toward for the previous 6 years and followed my heart down a different path. Fast forward 5 years later, and I’ve come full circle! Teaching yoga AND designing clothes!
I feel so grateful that I have been given the opportunity to go back to my fashion design roots to create these designs for Be Yoga. My inspiration for the shirts are all of the bright, beautiful faces that I see each day as yoga teacher and business manager at Be Yoga. I wanted to create shirts that reflect the vibrancy that I see in our students who show up to their practice again and again; who are interested in learning more about themselves and growing stronger everyday. Through our practice we improve our lives, and that inspires those around us to change too. One ripple at a time, one Be Yoga class at a time, we are creating a better world–together. Go Be Yoga!
I created each design and worked directly with Robot Empire, a local-to-Charlotte screen printer Support Local. Support your community. Share the love 🙂 Buy a Be Yoga shirt!
