Why I Love RYU Fitness Apparel

13 May


Since I transitioned from working in an office to teaching Yoga & Pilates 6 days a week, my work attire has dramatically changed. Comfort, breathability, eco friendly, bright, durable, these are just a few of the key aspects I look for when purchasing my “business” outfits.

I recently was introduced to a Premium Performance Athletic Apparel company called RYU – Respect Your Universe. The first thing that peaked my interest was the name: Respect Your Universe. I am a firm believer that we all have the power to make conscious purchasing decisions, this means for me means buying from a company that aligns with my values. I can say that RYU, is a company that fulfills this requirement. “The Respect Your Universe brand is based on respect, strength, honor and sustainability. Crafted from organic and/or recycled materials, the products are focused on performance, comfort and style, but also designed with respect toward maintaining the health of our environment.”

Additional to their environmentally conscious awareness, they sell clothing that is fitted, available is delicious colors, makes you feel comfortable and sexy, moves with your body, breathes with your temperature change, and is a great price point…


Yesterday I took a walk down to the iconic Vancouver Seawall to do some yoga by the waterfront. I wore my Allure Capri Pants and Siren Bra, they were perfect for the sunny warm day. The Siren Sports Bra has awesome support and stays in place, even if you stand on your head! The pants are a perfect  compliment with a bright tangerine undertone that peaks through as you move.


I am also in love with my new Endurance Jacket. This can be worn as a casual compliment to jeans (as I am wearing it) or slip it over your yoga clothes when heading to class.
