Our Mission

Our mission is to drape our population and planet with love and intention through mindfully designed, yoga inspired clothing that mirrors the yoga philosophy.

The yoga philosophy is one built on 5 ethical principles called the Yamas. These are:

  • Ahimsa (non-violence) 
  • Satya (truthfulness) 
  • Asteya (non-stealing) 
  • Brahmacharya (moderation of the senses/right use of energy)
  • Aparigraha (non-greed)
  • We envision that our society will work together to actively practice the Yamas on our planet. We strive for a world where people and the planet can function as one, with respect, non-violence, non-greed, and love.

    Apparel for a Cause

    Even our greatest predecessors started with a dream, but it was the actions that followed that created the change. The messages found on Downward Dog Design’s shirts will inspire, make you smile, empower, uplift and encourage. By surrounding our society with these messages, we are actively spreading a message of kindness, respect and a love for life.
    With each Downward Dog Designs purchase, a portion of the proceeds will go directly to a non-profit of our choosing. Every once in a while we come across a new one we would like to support, so we may change it up!

    Sharing the Journey

    There are numerous blogs out there touting the countless benefits of yoga and showing you how good you can look in the poses.

    This is not one of them. (Well, not entirely.)

    Sure, there will be a time and place for my love of yoga to voice itself in the form of a healthy advocate – accompanied by a yoga selfie of me finally nailing scorpion pose. But the heart of this blog will lie in the downdog n’ dirty truth of my journey – as a yoga student and teacher, wife and wanderlust soul. Downward Dog Designs is owned by just one person, myself, just working my passion and cultivating nothing but good vibes. Let’s go.
