BE PRESENT- eco friendly yoga clothing (Review+Giveaway!)

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

I've mentioned before that I don't do sports, my one and only work out is yoga (and maybe walking around the shopping malls for hours if you count that as work out too ;p). I have a couple of yoga dvds that I could easily do at home in the comfort of my bedroom. And thanks to Be Present I now have a yoga outfit for my work out sessions.

A couple of weeks ago I received these in the mail:


I received two products from Be Present. First of all, you must learn about Be Present first before I tell you all about the products I received. Be Present is a small family-owned business with clothing line carried in yoga studios, boutiques, spas and resorts throughout the United States and the World, incorporates the yoga philosophy into the design. Basically it's a versatile, simple and comfortable clothing.

The story behind Be Present:
Modern day yoga is often characterized with an appreciation of the present moment and to be present, one must always live a balanced lifestyle: listen to your body, let yourself daydream, have fun, sweat, pay attention to your social, sexual and spiritual being.

Now that I have introduced you to Be Present now it's time to know their products. Be Present offers yoga clothing for men and women. But it's actually not really fair if we say yoga clothing because in reality the clothing are so versatile we can wear it almost everywhere. Take example of these outfit they sent me:



I received a Seamless Ribbon Cami in Emerald and a Kona Pant in Terracotta. Thank you Be Present, these are my most comfortable clothing right now. I love to wear them as a set or mix and match 'em with my other clothes.

The Kona Pant is made of cotton and nylon with a little bit of spandex so it would support our moves and stretches during our yoga practice. It's quick dry, and it's breathable too so it wouldn't get too hot even if we sweat like hell ;)

The Seamless Ribbon Cami is made of nylon and spandex so it's stretchy and I love the moisture wicking feature. And what I also love is the fact that it doesn't show sweat even if I have just done a heavy yoga session, so there's no need to be embarrassed if you're in a class. And it's quick drying too! Have I told you enough that I love this cami? :D

The secret behind those moisture-wicking quick-to-dry fabric is the Breathe Weave. Worn by yoga instructors and yoga enthusiasts in the hottest studios, Breathe Weave TM has proven to be a fabric that can handle hot yoga and the harshest stretch.

Back to the outfit, The pant falls under the knee, it has 2 front patch pockets and a drawstring waist. And I just loove the cami! It's seamless, has adjustable straps and it's fitted (it hugs my body perfectly). Love it. I also love pairing the cami with my going-out outfit like this one:

See? I told you it's versatile.

One other thing that I love about Be Present is the fact that they are eco-friendly. They use earth-friendly fabrics such as hemp, organic cotton, and even renew fabric that's made from recycled plastic bottles blended with organic cotton.
Here are some other Be Present clothing that you might want to consider as a must-have :)





It's also good to know that in an effort to be responsible, every year Be Present gives a percentage of their proceeds to local, national and global charities.



WIN! WIN! WIN!
One lucky TB reader will get a Seamless Ribbon Cami (just like what I received) from Be Present. And I am pretty sure you're gonna love this cami ;)
