The clothes: Wellicious

Founded by a self-confessed fashionista, Heike Schnell, Wellicious is still one of my favourite brands for yoga (and pilates). Using luxury and organic fabrics soft to the touch, they always have a design twist that makes them special, the type of clothing that you can use even before or after the session. Wellicious garments are ethically made in Europe to maintain high working standards and low air miles, and also supports a number of social projects.

The New Thing: Tera Intelligent Yoga mat

Tera is a yoga mat a bit different than the typical yoga mats in the market. Designed by Lunar, it’s surface is embedded with sensors and a constellation of LED lights. Those sensors track pressure and shifts in body movement, making Tera like a giant touch pad that records data, and then uses said data to cue patterns in the lights, designed to guide your stance and posture. A rug that would be also your personal trainer. The mat is still a concept “and is the third in a line of interactive gym equipment pieces from Lunar’s European office.” It would be amazing to see how it works in person. Via Wired

Wellicious – Luxury Yoga & Pilates wear

Now that I am a bit hooked on Pilates, I thought I’d post some sport wear. But let’s be honest, it is not easy to find nice clothes that have the kind of attention to detail, that can worn also out of the gym. For example, I found this London-based brand that mixes eco-friendly fabrics with good design. Wellicious has some stylish options for leggings or wrap tops that caught my eye. The brand is quite new (they started in 2007) and produce all their garments in Europe to maintain high working standards and low air miles.

I love the options both for yoga and pilates. Heike Schnell, the creator of the brand, was “bored of plain tank top and leggings” so she  to decided to create a new yoga clothing line “with a twist: sweet and feminine with luxurious materials, fresh colours and lots of love to detail.”
