I have been a certified yoga teacher since 2009 – yoga pants are my uniform. There is another group of workers that yoga pants are a uniform to as well… MOMS. I am a mom of young kids so I get it, you need fabrics that move with your body to get down on their level all the time. Recently when Soybu yoga clothing held their flagship store grand opening my mom and yoga world collided when I received an invite thanks to the Mile High Mamas.
I had the good fortune of already knowing about Soybu thanks to a Bombshell Tank and Lotus Short I received from last year’s FitSocial conference. I did not get to interact with them when they supported the I’m Unique Yoga Illustrated Union tour that held a LARGE class at Invesco Field in the summer because I was traveling but that event was in my heart and I was named one of Colorado’s Top 100 Yoga and Fitness Professionals there. Soybu has been mindfully reaching out to the yoga and wellness community for a while even though only establishing in 2010. Soybu reaching out to a less traditional wellness community was refreshing.
Soybu is reaching out further and offering a 25% discount on all online orders through Sunday 23 Feb 2014 using the code “NOWOPEN” as well as free shipping for orders over $75.
If you want to visit the flagship store head to the Cherry Hills Marketplace, 2500 E. Orchard Rd Unit 2500 A, Greenwood Village, Colorado.
Since I was already familiar with the brand, their fit, and my size I was ready to shop. I did not drink or eat any goodies because I was too busy in the dressing room, getting feedback from Jamie G (a Soybu community leader I know from the FitSocial conference), and talking to Soybu staff. I finally settled on two capris and a pair of leggings.
At the event I had time to speak with Erin about the Soybu concept and clothing for everywoman. She said they wanted to do an event for moms even if they do not do yoga because the clothes celebrate being a woman of all sizes and abilities. The care of the construction, quality of fabric, and selection of colors and styles do leave a lot of room for even non-athletes to feel fantastic in their gear. As far as sizing for every woman their activewear goes to XXL which is roughly a size 16. It is not a perfect fit for all but for many.
Check them out and hopefully you will find something you like.
