Anjali was born from the desire to create clothes for the most advanced asana practice,
as well as sophisticated enough to be worn off the mat every day.
Anjali was founded by husband and wife team Julissa Carranza and Kristinn Sigridarson,
as a way to join their two great loves; yoga and fashion design.
They first met in 1991 in New York City, when they were paired together as co-designers for a women's suit collection.
It was a secret office romance that resulted in a wedding four years later.
They came to yoga in 2000, in hopes of saving Julissa's life from the stress of the New York fashion industry. It was love at first practice. It did not only save Julissa’s life but was also a gateway to new life experiences and transformations that neither could have imagined before that first yoga class.
Two years later, after experimenting with various styles of yoga, they walked into an Anusara Yoga Class in Montclair New jersey and knew that life would never be the same after that.
In 2005, they both completed an Anusara teacher training at that very studio in Montclair where Julissa still teaches.
After 15 years of working for some of New York’s top fashion companies,
we have paired our fashion sensibilities with our intense yoga practice demands;
to create a collection of clothes that ultimately, we hope, will contribute more beauty into the world.
We select fabrics that feel good against the skin and are in alignment with a life style vision of what we strive to cultivate in our Yoga practice.
We design artwork that reminds us, and all that see it, of the inherent beauty and goodness that resides in each and every one of us. We hope that you will love our clothes and that they enhance and contribute to you loving your Yoga practice and life.
Anjali is a family company committed to providing the best service possible.
We absolutely guarantee the quality of our clothes which are sweat shop free and are primarily made by us in the New York City area and Los Angeles, or in fair trade facilities by our partners.
We invite you to browse through our website and get to know us.
We are committed to servicing our customers with the same dedication that we approach our yoga practice.
