  • What to Wear for Yoga: The Perfect Yoga Top

    What to Wear for Yoga Tops

    Welcome back to our series about what to wear for yoga. We hope to assist you in choosing the proper clothing for your yoga practice so that you can feel confident in the studio and stop making excuses for not going.

    Yoga is meant to bring balance and peace to your life, to invigorate and strengthen your body. Your clothing should allow you to move freely, breathe deeply, and focus fully on the direction of the teacher and the movement of your body. If you are constantly adjusting your clothes or worrying about how you look, you are not wearing the proper yoga wear. Today we are talking about choosing the perfect yoga top.

  • Afraid of Cashmere? Here's How to Care For It

    Beckons Yoga Clothing cashmere scarf and beaute neck sweaterI have heard a lot of people say that they do not wear cashmere because they do not know how to care for it. No need to fear. Here’s what you do:

    Washing cashmere: Even though the care label reads "dry clean only," it is best to hand wash cashmere. In fact, it will actually make it softer over time. Use a mild detergent like Woolite or baby shampoo. Press out the excess water, but do not wring the sweater. Instead, lay it flat on a towel and reshape it as it dries. It takes days to dry. To lessen the time, you can spin off excess water by putting the sweater or scarf into a large salad spinner.

    Storing cashmere: Never hang a sweater (of any kind) on a hanger. This creates shoulder dimples and distorts the overall shape of the sweater due to gravity. Instead, fold it nicely in a drawer. Because moths love to eat cashmere, like they do wool, throw a cedar disk into the drawer. You can purchase cedar disks at Bed, Bath and Beyond or Target.

    Wearing cashmere: There is nothing quite like cashmere. Unlike wool, it does not itch or irritate the skin. Instead, it is very soft and luxurious. You can wear cashmere casually with jeans or to an elegant event with a velvet long skirt.

    Enjoy a touch of cashmere today and purchase a striped one-of-a-kind, made-to-order recycled cashmere scarf or Beaute Neck Cashmere Sweater from Beckons.

  • Lines and Circle: An Update on The Samburu Donation

    Last year Beckons donated clothing to the Samburu People of Northern Kenya by way of Vital Yoga of Denver. They are a colorful group of nomadic people. Here is a piece written by Micah Springer, who hand-carried our boxes of clothes to Africa, about distributing the clothing to the people. This is beautiful and we are touched to have been a part of it. If you want to know more of the back story, read our previous blog.

    Samburu Tribe Penina and childrenLines and Circles by Micah Springer

    Lepakiyo, the leader of this tribe of Samburu People, is masterful at requiring the villagers to gather in a line. To you and me this is a simple formation because we were taught early, as children. Nomadic people are anything but linear. They don't stand in lines, speak in lines, think in linear fashion. The creativity we recognize in their character is a direct tribute to this fact. Continue reading

  • About Designer and Owner Becky Prater

    Designer Becky Prater Peyton Prater and Jan BoddickerBecky Prater (center) is an inspired artist, a creative spirit, a yoga convert, and a career designer. Having worked for more than 25 years in apparel design—she’s created everything from wedding dresses and children’s clothing, to beachwear and dance costumes—Becky wanted to create clothing that reflects true intention, and founded Beckons organic yoga clothing.

    Clothing has always been a passion of Becky’s—she noticed early on how much impact clothing had on her, and believes that our clothing significantly impacts how we perform in life. She began designing clothing at the age of four, expressing herself through fashions she made for her Barbie dolls.

    Later, Becky learned to sew in 4-H, having her mother, Jan Boddicker (right), as her teacher. She would often design a garment on paper before school, and return home to find that her mom had taken the design and sewn it into a garment. She went on to get a Bachelor’s of Fashion Design and a Master’s in Marketing. Over the years, she has worked for consumer brands like Big Dogs and Boarder Patrol. She also created a line of children’s clothing, designed for a New York dance company, Complexions, and custom designed wedding apparel.

    Enter yoga…

    Becky took up—and fell in love with—yoga in 2005. She was particularly grateful for yoga’s ability to bring her serenity against a backdrop of a hectic, busy, demanding lifestyle. What she was discouraged by, however, was yoga clothing—she found there to be an overabundance of neutral colors, and the clothing all seemed suited for particularly petite women. That’s when Becky created Beckons.

    Becky has comprehensively studied cultures and religion, as well as the psychology of color, to extract commonalities and inject aspects of universal “good” into each of her Beckons garments. She remains passionate about experimenting with color and fabric, and to this day, Becky personally designs every garment in the Beckons organic yoga clothing line.

    In addition to designing Beckons organic yoga clothing, Becky teaches fashion entrepreneurship classes at the Art Institute of Colorado. In this position, she is able to share her expertise and daily experiences with design and retail management students, who, in turn, help her navigate her own business challenges and triumphs. Becky enjoys gaining fresh perspectives, and input on design, marketing, styling and social media from her students.

    Becky’s intention is to design clothing that inspires you, as an individual, and makes you feel positive, powerful, and vibrant; clothing that is luxuriously comfortable, brightly colorful, and helps you speak your purpose. Learn more about Beckons organic yoga clothing’s clothing or Shop Now.

  • Vital Yoga and Beckons Bring Organic Clothing to Samburu People of Kenya

    Beckons Yoga Clothing partners with Vital Yoga for Samburu TribeBeckons has partnered with Vital Yoga of Denver to bring their organic clothing to the Samburu Tribe of Kenya. Micah and Desi Springer, owners of the flourishing Vital Yoga, have developed a strong friendship over the years with the Samburu people of Kenya. Micah met this precious group of friends during her post-college travels around Africa. Over the past twenty years she has been working with this nomadic tribe, bringing several groups of adventurers over to experience their indigenous culture.

    Samburu_people in traditional garmentsThe Samburu people are nomadic pastoralist, raising cattle, sheep and goats, moving camp to support the needs of their animals. They are extremely dependent on their animals for survival. The Samburu people live just north of the equator in the Rift Valley province of Northern Kenya. Lepakiyo is a leader for his region in Kenya and has recently traveled to Colorado to visit the Springer sisters. Because it is very difficult to ship / transport goods to this remote area of Kenya, Micah and Lepakiyo have escorted the 150 pounds of hemp and organic cotton clothing back to Africa on their recent journey.

    Often we do not realize what our “good intentions” do to a community. I have been concerned with flooding an area with clothing only to displace the community’s dressmakers. It would be very sad if my good deeds actually were having a negative impact on the community. Lepakiyo has assured me that this will not be a problem. He has built many schools in his region and the clothing will be distributed to the students of his schools. He believes they will be very happy to receive the colorful items. You can see from the photos of his beautiful people, in their traditional dress, that they appreciate color as much as we do at Beckons.
