Flip Your Dog
Yoga is an integral part of Janelle Hope’s life. Janelle, the founder of Flip Your Dog see’s yoga as a beautiful tool for wellbeing and transformation and has been dismayed by a lack of exciting yoga wear. She hankered for clothing with colour and flair. She wanted something vibrant, that told a story, and imbibed a sense of fun and beauty. Comfort was essential. But so was style.
Her search led her around the globe to discover brands like Teeki, Hardtail, Liquido Active, Onzie and Beyond Yoga – all fair trade and environmentally conscious with an ethic of creating stylish and comfortable workout clothing.
Initially she wanted the clothes for herself, but when she realised there was nowhere in New Zealand where the gear was readily available she created Flip Your Dog, an online store Devoted to Yoga & Activewear. ‘With love and light’
