Tall and Tan and Young and Lovely... The Girl from Ioga Activewear Goes Walking...
You've heard the song.... I can hear the slightly off-key voice of Astrud Gilberto crooning the classic lounge song The Girl From Ipanema when Thairine Tiwari walks by. The lyrics "tall and tan and young and lovely" is quite literally the exact description of her and she exudes an exotic cool vibe with each step. If you haven't met her in your local yoga class, she is the creator and the Brazilian beauty behind Ioga Activewear, an activewear company that makes you feel almost as cool and exotic and she is!
Thai, as I call her, is not just a beauty. This brainy boss lady graduated with a law degree in Brazil but made Kentucky her new home when she fell in love and got married -#followyourheart. When Thai stepped into her first hot yoga class, it was love at first stretch. When she closed her eyes, she was immediately transported to the hot humid climate of Brazil and she instantly felt right back at home on the beach.
Brazil is no stranger to this hot yoga climate, and Thai knew about a light weight material used in swimwear and activewear in Brazil called Polyamide and started ordering some for herself to wear to class. Because of the attractive prints and functionality, people kept asking her where she got her leggings. Well it just so happened that her brother is an experienced fashion designer and her husband is a savvy businessman and VOILA!, just like that, Ioga Activewear was born! And because of the amazing sweat-wicking capabilities, Ioga Activewear can be used for the gym, or any form of exercize!
The minute I tried them on, I was on cloud nine. Where have these pants been all my life! They feel like heaven on your body -truly the softest pair of athletic apparel that has ever grazed my skin. Because they are made to be wet, they don't get heavy and hot in class like many other fabrics do. But beyond function, they are simply stunning. With so many bold colorful prints to choose from, Thairine is always ahead of the latest in sportswear. She has added tops, mesh paneling, UVA/UVB protection, and all the latest trends and is even branching into headbands, one piece suits and more! Have I mentioned that Ioga is environmentally and community driven as well? I mean, can we say TRIFECTA!
