What is the Sanskrit word for: “breath, life and vitality of the spirit”?

…prAna is!

Through this here, little space of mine (and as a Sweat Pink Ambassador) I have been exposed to trying products I might not have otherwise known of as I am not a big apparel/clothing shopper. Yup, I would prefer meandering through the trails at Fort Yargo Park way more than meandering through the aisles at the Mall of Georgia!

So when I was fortunate to be trusted with reviewing prAna’s Early Winter Collection, I headed to their website and my curiosity was piqued by their philosophy that focuses on striving to “to give much more than they take from the world” … as I have gotten older, that has been one of my motto’s – in act, one my daughter and I talked about just last weekend when I told her I signed her up to help with me at our church’s Christmas shoe box collection project.


From it’s humble beginnings in the garage of Beaver Theodosakis and his wife Pam in 1992, prAna has grown to bring us mindfully designed and built to last “apparel and accessories that are made using fewer toxins and chemicals”.It is clothing for people who live life fully, play long, and travel well.

I was given the extremely shape flattering prAna Olympia Pants to try out. I must say, for such a lightweight pair of pants, the Olympia did a wonderful job of keeping me warm while I spent most of the day walking the dogs, hiking with my daughter and spending time contemplating if I should or shouldn’t rake my yard. That “Chakara performance knit fabric” is no joke! These pants also come with a wide waist band and a hidden key pocket and they dry pretty quick if you happen to accidentally step into a lake while chasing a dog or two.

I was also given the super soft prAna Chrissa top to try out. This top – just like the Olympia Pant – is very lightweight, it is a “heather wool blend jersey” which also is perfect for cooler temperatures. I loved it’s “raw edging” and flattering neckline.

“prAna is Sanskrit for breath, life and vitality of the spirit. This ancient word holds great meaning for us, and so we borrowed it for our name. It lifts our aspirations and helps guide our actions towards becoming an evermore socially mindful and environmentally sustainable organization”
