I got chills – they’re multiplying
And I’m losing control
‘Cause the power you’re supplying
Come on, sing it with me the way Danny (John Travolta) sings to Sandy in Grease!
I couldn’t get the visual of John Travolta shaking his booty and his ELECTRIFYING declaration out of my mind the whole time I was trying out my new yogawear from Electric Yoga. This company has some of the brightest, boldest, and most electrifying yoga clothes I’ve seen, and I couldn’t wait to amp up my yoga wardrobe and practice with these styles.
Electric Yoga sent me a fantastic surge of energy in the form of their Enlightened Print Tank. Check out how pretty and unique this tank design is – then click on this link to see it in three different colors! All of the vibrant shades in the Electric Yoga line were selected to resonate internal energy and charge the wearer with positivity. That is exactly what happened when I saw the way the thunderbolt graphics and white lines running down my belly provided an optical illusion of ripped abs (LOL – hey, a girl can dream). The back of the tank is super cute too!
This tank is made with an ultra soft stretch material called ELOY™. It has wicking performance that kept me dry and comfortable when I wore it in a hot yoga class. The length of the tank is extra long to cover the belly and does not ride up when reaching your arms up overhead in urdhva hastasana (upward salute). Although I would prefer a little more padding in the bra, the tank does include a shelf bra for support. I will caution you that the sizes run small. I originally ordered the small and had to return it for the medium/large. I’m also happy to report that the tank passed my wash test, and I can tell it is going to hold up for many years of high voltage yoga practices!
One of the reasons I wanted to promote Electric Yoga is that the company focuses on creating wellness by offering clothing that encourages people to lead happier, healthier, energetic, and well-balanced lives. Michele Bohbot – the owner of Electric Yoga, a top fashion designer, and mom to seven kids – found balance and happiness through yoga. Her hope is that the colorful designs will inspire women to embrace their electricity within and then share it with the world.
I also got the opportunity to try their patent-pending Anti-Slip Yoga Pant, which has a rubberized anti-slip grip on the foot that allows you to practice yoga without a mat. You can pair it with their Anti-Slip Glove for a totally mat-less experience. I loved the thickness of the material in these pants, the way they felt against my skin, and they definitely kept me warm. They are made with a moisture wicking material called DRYFLEX that absorbs sweat (88% Micropoly, 12% Spandex). I wore these pants to teach yoga, and instead of being completely barefoot, it was great to have that extra protection under my feet on cold studio floors. I live in Ohio, so it is a big deal to find something that keeps my feet and legs warmer during these frigid winter months.
I’m not a big fan of flip-flops or having anything in between my toes, so the fabric that rests there was a little uncomfortable for me at first. If you don’t like wearing flip-flops, these pants probably are not for you.
