At the beginning of February, I participated in a fun Instagram challenge with Fit Approach and prAna – The #PoseofTheDay challenge for prAna’s spring clothing line.
I’m always up for a challenge and incorporating yoga into my life always provides positive benefits. Who couldn’t use a little extra stretching and zen in their lives?!
Check out a few of my yoga poses (FYI – My form is definitely not perfect… I’m a yoga work in progress ;) ) from the challenge:
You can find all of my poses on my Instagram account.
As a gift for participating in the challenge, prAna sent me a gorgeous new pair of their Ashley Capri Leggings in Azalea. What a gorgeous pink color, right?
These leggings are part of their new spring line (I want everyyyyything!) and I couldn’t love them more! I was a bit hesitant to try out a pair of solid colored leggings that were not my typical black. Sometimes the material is NOT flattering and I was worried these leggings would look awful once I put them on. I’m thankful that was not the case – The material hides all of my bumps and lumps – LOL – and the pants look great on. Plus, I mean, they’re pink… That’s never a bad thing ;)
Now that I wear active wear to work day in and day out, I’m always looking for new pieces to incorporate into my wardrobe. These pants are great for yoga (obviously!) but also great for classes I teach like HIIT, BODYPUMP, and Spinning. They don’t move or twist or change position which I definitely appreciate when I’m teaching in front of 30 people! The Ashley Capri Leggings are also great to wear for errand day (they look awesome with a chambray button up shirt) or a day of lounging around the house.
Another thing I especially love about prAna is their focus on sustainability. Before this challenge, I had no familiarity with bluesign or that prAna was committed to environmentally-friendly apparel production. What is bluesign, you ask?
Per the bluesign website:
The bluesign® system is the solution for a sustainable textile production. It eliminates harmful substances right from the beginning of the manufacturing process and sets and controls standards for an environmentally friendly and safe production. This not only ensures that the final textile product meets very stringent consumer safety requirements worldwide but also provides confidence to the consumer to acquire a sustainable product.
Pretty interesting, right? I’m all about protecting our planet for future generations and am happy to support the process with my clothing purchases.
Thanks for making great clothing AND for supporting sustainability, prAna!
