Welcome to our curated collection

So many years. So many stories. So much love.

I remember having a booth with Kripalu at the 1st yoga journal conference in Estes Park, Colorado. I had the first yoga clothing line there and it was something. It was modest and well made in cotton lycra with men's and women's pieces. I distinctly remember Patricia Walden taking my hands and looking me in the eyes and thanking me for making this line. We were both teary and I felt on purpose since I built the line to blend my design career with the profound honor I felt for yoga and meditation. I sold $14,000 that weekend and my new company was off to a beautiful start. Thank you Terri Shatz, former Kripalu Buyer, who believed in me when I showed you pencil drawn sketches of the line and you bought upfront. Love you ad your vision.

I thought it would be fun to include some photos of the 1st yoga collection photo shoot shot in Denver, Colorado., 1996.
