About

There's active wear but now there is active FASHION wear for the ROCK STAR in you! ROCK-N-ROLL YOGA is all about bringing you a sense of strength, power and attitude to the active and casual wear market. There is no company out there quite like ROCK-N-ROLL YOGA. We design active-wear clothing & jewelry with a flair towards current fashion and style so you will feel just as comfortable rocking our threads at any social gathering as you would practicing yoga or working out at the gym.

 We have gone to great lengths to insure our garments are made from high-quality, comfortable and super soft materials. Rock Om!

How did I became a BADASS? Really…it came down to a choice. I could either stay in bed or I could get up and find a better way to deal with my chronic autoimmune condition (better known as the “you look perfectly fine to me” disease).

My body is constantly at war with itself from the inside out. On the days that I wake up in the morning and can’t get out of bed because of the body aches, the migraine and the nausea…I summon my personal battle cry of “Look Like A ROCK STAR…Feel Like A BADASS”. It’s my updated version of the Little Engine That Could’s...“I think I can”. I may feel like complete hell but I still want to KICKASS even if it’s just in my own mind.

Recently, I ended up in the ER and while I was laying there I realized how important my battle cry was. I wanted to scream and cry about how unfair it was that my body keeps betraying me. Instead, I closed my eyes and imagined I was standing tall at the top of my yoga mat looking like a ROCK STAR and feeling like a BADASS. I felt the power and strength come flooding back into my body as the stress and pain slowly dissipated.

I have been working on this yoga wear line everyday for the last seven months (not that I have counted...errr...actually I have and it's somewhere around 1,050 hours). Some days I worked from a desk and other days I worked from a bed but I never let my illness rob me of my passion. I was not going to let anyone or anything steal my dreams.

When life gave me lemons, I tried to figure out how to package and sell them. I turned my lemons into a yoga wear line. I’m not telling you any of this because I want sympathy. I’m telling you this because there are 117 million people just like me in the United States alone and I am living proof that just because you have a chronic illness doesn’t mean you can’t make your dreams a reality. This Kickstarter campaign is more than just tank tops and yoga pants.

I so appreciate you taking the time to visit my campaign. Now scroll on down and check out the campaign rewards. Each reward (except the $5)  features actual pieces from my 2015 Spring ROCK-N-ROLL YOGA line. Join me and become a YOGA REBEL!

March/April - Receive garments & jewelry from vendor/artists, ship orders to customers, send customer updates.

Thanks to my husband Al for loving & supporting me these last 22 years and for also being one hell of an editor. My boys, Ian & Luca...I love you both so much. You are the reasons why I get up each day no matter how I feel. My Mom & Sister who love me unconditionally and always support all of my crazy ideas (even if they secretly think I am nuts). My hilariously funny BFF, Jen Bernhard. Girl...you keep me laughing and I love your no nonsense way of living. My accountability partner Becky McKown who I have known since the 4th grade...thank you for being on this crazy ride with me. My favorite yoga teacher ever, June Ameika...you have taught me that yoga is not supposed to hurt and that side crow is truly over-rated. Thanks to Sherri Hayter, Michelle Castro and Trisha Edwards for their help with engraving, hand casting & stamping and embroidering my samples. BIG SHOUT OUT to Marie Forleo and her B School program and it's AWESOME online community. I have met so many wonderful people who each had a part in shaping where I am at this moment in my business. I want to thank my Woo Woo Crew spirit & soul sisters especially Limitless Megan, Christina Caudill & Erin-Ashley Kerti. I want to thank my "thought coach" Mary Schiller and Crowd Funding guru Alexia Anastasio. I also want to thank from the bottom of my heart, Lucy Kate who believed in me and my yoga wear line from the very beginning...so much so that she volunteered her VA skills to help get me started. Finally, I would like to thank my Dad who passed along his entrepreneurial skills on to me and taught me that anything is possible with hard work & persistence. I know he is looking down on me and guiding me from up above. 

Risks and challenges

While there are possible risks involved in any new project, I have been in business for myself for over 20 years and have the experience needed to make sure this project is brought to completion. I have vast knowledge of the wholesale/retail garment business and have production already set up for each item I am offering as a reward.

There is always a chance for concerns when it comes to the production time on the rewards. I do have different vendors for the tanks/tees, yoga pant/jacket and jewelry. I have been working very closely with each of them this entire process (before, during and after the campaign).

Rest assure that I have spent countless hours on each reward offered before this campaign even started (seriously…I lost track but I have been working everyday for the last seven months) to make sure that I can produce and ship out the rewards in the time specified.
