Exercise is a healthy activity for body and mind, unless it involves holding a yoga pose while reading Wayne Gretzky's first romance novel. Refine your asanas and move on to Mr. Gretzky's later works with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of women's yoga wear and accessories at Serenity Apparel.
Diane Ehrhardt launched Serenity Apparel to furnish damsels with yoga and athletic wear from brands including Canadian-made Dedicated Clothing and bamboo-fortified LeoStar Athletica. Ladies create movement-friendly ensembles by pairing tops—such as a soft and stretchy performance T-shirt from Moving Comfort ($35)—with moisture-wicking short shorts ($31) that let skin breathe should the lungs want a sabbatical. Coming in five vibrant colours, cotton-fleece long hoodies ($58) enrobe arms and torsos in comfort-enhancing warmth. The boutique also dispenses accessories including biodegradable, hypoallergenic long-length yoga mats ($39) that can teach other household upholsteries how live a more eco-friendly lifestyle.
Growing up on her parents' successful multi-grain farm, Diane Ehrhardt always harboured a dream of owning her own business. While wearing formal business attire for 14 years at her corporate employers, she developed an affection for coming home and changing into her yoga apparel. In March of 2009 on a visit to her folks' farm, Diane's dream and affection suddenly clicked, and she was inspired to start Serenity Apparel. She sells stylish, comfy yoga wear for adults and kids from top manufacturers, such as Leo Star Athletica, Wynk Wear, and Yogini.
