We know you’re busy and we know you’re tired, but honestly momma, there is no excuse for wearing that old college tee and ripped up pair of jogging pants. Whether you’re running around the block, on your way to a new Hot Yoga class or just chasing the kids in the backyard, you want to look and feel your best. It’s true if you dress the part that the rest will follow. For days of exercise, lounging and brunching you’ll find us dressed in Beyond Yoga, a fabulous yoga inspired clothing line. It’s simply put, our new addiction. We can honestly say that their Original Pant feels as smooth as butter and makes our bottom look fabulous. The fabric wicks away moisture and the waistband is super supportive, so it’s perfect for mommies-to-be too. We have our pants in Midnight Blue, but the Graphite Gray would be brilliant for taking you from class to a coffee date with the girls as well. We busy mommas love clothes that can do double duty and look fresh and stylish at the same time. Who else balances, bends and twists while wearing Beyond’s creations? Celeb mommies Reece Witherspoon, Julia Roberts and Naomi Watts. Have a look at their brilliant collection at www.iambeyond.com and join our addiction.
We’re honored to have been given the chance to interview the owner and creator of I Am Beyond, Jodi Guber. Her company includes the sought after Beyond Yoga clothing and a gorgeous and spiritual jewelry line called Beyond Malas. Her celebrity following is as dazzling as her designs.
Celeb Baby: We all need basics for our wardrobe (little black dress, white shirt, perfect black tee). What would you say are the basics for a stylish yoga wardrobe?
Jodi: The perfect pant, which is of course the Beyond Yoga Original Pant, a supportive cami that is long enough to cover your midriff and depending upon the weather/climate a shirt to cover up and a cozy jacket. All pieces that we sell help you transition effortlessly from the mat into your busy day – never sacrificing style or comfort.
Celeb Baby: What or who inspired you to switch gears in your life from being a successful publicist to designing yoga wear?
Jodi: It wasn’t a switch as much as it has been a process. I have had many lives – I am a non-traditional renaissance woman of sorts – all of the careers I have had come together perfectly in Beyond Yoga. All of the relationships I have created along the way are in perfect synergy with Beyond Yoga.
Celeb Baby: Tell us more about your jewelry line, Beyond Malas?
Jodi: It began as a traditional take on mala (prayer) beads and slowly evolved into a full jewelry line. The beads are endorsed by Deepak Chopra, the concept being that you surround yourself with what you want to attract into your life – therefore all of the charms and beads have meanings.
Celeb Baby: You have a very impressive list of celebrity clients. Is there a celebrity mom in particular you’d love to see sporting your brilliant yoga inspired clothing?
Jodi: Well Reese Witherspoon is a huge supporter of Beyond Yoga and she embodies so many qualities that make her an inspiring woman – a career woman, a mother, and a yogi. The other two I would like to see in my line are Jennifer Garner and Angelina Jolie.
Celeb Baby: What’s next for Beyond Yoga? Any plans to start a maternity yoga line in the future?
Jodi: We have thought about it – a lot our pieces really expand with a growing belly but it may come up in the future. A men’s collection and kids is next on the radar!
