    Beauty in motion, breathing deep and feeling wonderful in Aktiv Sustainable Yoga Wear

    From the ocean to the mountains and everywhere in between. We all deserve clean water, clean air, and so do our heirs. What will you change to make our planet a better place? Meditation. Mindfulness. Exercising deliberately with purpose. Engaging your core and maintaining proper posture while you move is much more difficult than most people realize. Leggings, while the height of comfort, are truly designed so you can check your body’s alignment. Of course, there’s no reason why you can’t do all of this while wearing Aktiv’s sustainable, sumptuous fabrics too!
