Tonic Active for a busy or not-so busy lifestyle

If you care about the clothes you wear, then you may want to adopt a few items from Tonic Active. I discovered Tonic Active at Louwana Creek – the carefully curated sports and activewear boutique on Laurier West.Tonic Active is based in Vancouver and all of their collections are sustainably manufactured there.I was invited to choose a few pieces from the collection last fall and I basically lived in these Laverne sweatpants all through winter and am still using them as loungewear around the house. My mantra has become “why go to a yoga class when I can just sit cross-legged in bed and read a book?” That’s yoga enough, isn’t it?

I paired the sweatpants with the matching top because I like a uniform, ok?

When I’m feeling a bit of a draft indoors, I go all out and add another layer. The Expansion Wrap has a cross-over collar that keeps my neck warm and the cuffs have thumb holes so that the cuffs extend over my hands to keep them cozy while I read a book, hold a yoga pose (yeah right) or whatever it is that I do in my loungewear (Hello, Netflix!)I also received this awesome sports bra from Tonic Active which gives me just the right support while lounging around the house or walking the dog up and down the mountain.If ethically-made activewear is important to you, then be sure to look for Tonic Active at Louwana Creek.
