Vyayama was founded with the intention of providing a natural alternative to synthetic active wear. Vyayama (pronounced ‘vai-ah’mah’) is a 3000 year old sanskrit word meaning ‘to move’ and ‘to tame the inner breath’. The ancient Ayurvedic texts describe Vyayama as movement designed to stabilize and strengthen the body. Their innovative TENCEL® fabric is crafted in Europe from sustainably farmed eucalyptus. Produced in Portugal, all the dye-houses of their production facilities have clean internal water treatments and in no way create any negative impact on the local environment. In addition, their custom designed fabrics are knitted in the same area as their garment production to reduce transportation impact on the environment. All of their custom fabrics are third party tested and certified safe for the wearer and the environment by the European Oeko-tex Standard 100.
