We are excited that our new Spring/Summer ’19 collection has incorporated our love for yoga in our designs from the throw on style of our cashmere ponchos to the warmth of the Cashmere Travel Wrap. All are great when you want that bit of warmth without the weight.
The trend for 2019 is all about wellness, looking after ourselves both inside and out. There is a growing realisation that relentless, punishing workouts aren’t always better, particularly if they trigger a wave of cortisol, the stress hormone. What we are now embracing is what is actually sustainable for the body. Yoga is key to a healthy body and mind.
Yoga can help you get fit for life. It helps you deal with stress, pick up your child, control your dog, carry groceries, or work in your garden. It also can help to prevent or ease back pain and muscle or joint injury, and give you self-reliance and self-esteem. Our favourite thing about yoga is that it’s for everyone. You don’t have to be thin with long arms, you can be short and fat and still do yoga. In a lot of the classes we go to there are men and women, young and old, and short and tall people. Some of us are a little larger and some of us are a little smaller.
It's mental too.
Yet, one of the most important benefits of any yoga routine isn't physical — it's the quieting of the mind. The bottom line is learning to pay attention. You fine-tune your attention, beginning with the body and then moving to the mind. As you get deeper into your practice over the years, you start to see the mental and spiritual benefits.
There’s no more peaceful feeling than finishing a yoga class and confronting your day recharged and re-centred - especially if you are wrapped in our luxurious cashmere knitwear.
Yoga and softness.
Cashmere is that little bit of luxury that we can’t resist, throwing on a 100% pure cashmere wrap or cashmere scarf is like enveloping you in a warm and soft hug…. and at the end of a yoga class that is exactly what you need. Our new 100% Pocket Cashmere Poncho is one of our workout favourites; this versatile piece is breathable, lightweight and warm. It is perfect for throwing on over your yoga gear when you need an extra layer for a little more warmth at the beginning and end of each class. All our cashmere is machine washable so you don't have to worry about working up a bit of sweat. To find out more about washing cashmere, head over to our how to wash cashmere blog post.
