Life force or vital energy is known as Prana. In yoga we are taught to draw Prana into the body through the breath. When life gets stressful or complicated, I remember to go back to my breath. By inhaling and exhaling, slowly and deeply, pulling my shoulders down and back, and letting tension release down my spine, I am reminded not to overthink, obsess or worry. Just slow down, breathe, and rebalance.

I especially notice my breath when I’m running, breathing in the cold, crisp air of a new day. When I swim, I tend to obsess over my breath: Often holding it when I shouldn’t, then gasping and struggling for it when I fall out of my rhythm (which is often). Most of the time though, breathing is something that happens simply and naturally, with no thought given to it whatsoever.
PrAna clothing embraces some of these same ideals in their clothing line. Simple, quality design, thoughtfully crafted with the environment in mind. From that first pair of PrAna pants I bought years ago that I still wear today, I’ve enjoyed PrAna clothing for it’s easy design, natural colors, comfortable fit and attention to quality and detail. As winter winds down, it’s exciting to look toward spring and new beginnings. New life, new growth and a new spring collection at PrAna.

There’s a lot to love
Liana Sweater in Moonrock. Made of a whisper-light weave of organic cotton and hemp, this sweater features angled, asymmetrical styling that’ll have you reaching for it again and again. It’s effortless and beautiful layered over a basic tee or cami. The wide neckline gives it a casual flare. Wear it with your fave jeans (mine are PrAna’s Kara) or the Lizbeth Capri shown here.
Lizbeth Capri in Coal. When the days warm up, I’m all about lightweight capris and these fit the bill perfectly. Made of soft hemp and recycled fibers, they’re comfy and light with just the right amount of stretch.
There’s double yoke styling at the mid-rise waist, accented by pleats. Legs taper for the most flattering fit.
