Meet the Salabasana Capris

posted on Tuesday, 20th August 2013 | find under Tamara, Fashion
I shall tell you of the soul. The soul is God who is immortal and infinite, who has no beginning and will have no end, and who both exists and does not exist. Those who know the soul, are immortal.
- Bhagavad Gita 13.12-17

We continue to practise what we preach at Sweaty Betty and Yoga Buyer Charlotte Howe is testament to this – a qualified Yoga Instructor, Charlotte can be found teaching the Support Office early morning yoga in their new studio.
Along with the wider team of Buyers and Designers at the Support Office, Charlotte focused on the theme of spirituality and the ‘Universal Self’ fused with the overlying theme of ‘Beyond Blastoff’ to create some unique pieces in the Yoga Range.
Charlotte opens up on the world of the Universal Self and the key inspiration behind a hero piece of the season, the Salabasana Capris.
'Yoga is about uniting the individual self to the universal self, and asana practice – the physical practice of postures, actions, and breathwork – specifically approaches this union through the body, uniting your essential true nature with that of the greater universe.
'When we contacted NASA for photography to use in our design, we chose the images that reminded us strongly of the union of individual and universal self. Ideally, the yogi strives for a seamless integration of mind, body and universal self. We want to create yogawear that honours the idea of the universal self without distracting from the asana practice.
'The Salabasana Capris strike that perfect balance. The statement galaxy-inspired zodiac print inspires your practice and the capris are super comfortable as well, in a highly technical sweat-wicking fabric with flatlocked seams to prevent chafing. They’re also opaque, so you’re not worrying about them becoming see-through – without being distracted by your kit, you really get a chance to focus on yourself and your practice.'
