From there we started a two year long deep dive into the history of yoga. Alongside we worked with fabric and material experts to help develop products that were sustainable, had optimum performance and looked great.
We believe that most yoga wear is sportswear in disguise, and no one is seriously asking, "What garment would be true to yoga practice?"
The Birth of Proyog
Proyog is derived from a Bengali word 'prayog' that means 'Experiment' or 'Application' and yoga is about both. Pro stands for Professional and yog stand for Yoga. The Downward Dog logo comes from our love for our four-legged friends and the pose that they inspire.
We celebrate yoga in all forms with people across the globe. We hope you find the products are everything you need for your practice.
THIS IS WHAT WE BELIEVE
If yoga comes from India, the onus of true yoga wear cannot be on the world.
So it is with the utmost respect that we present Proyog, the world’s first super-specialized yoga attire for serious practitioners. It is designed to enhance the practice.
Proyog is no sportswear in disguise. In fact, it’s a clarion call to millions of present-day yoga lovers who still wear polyester. Unaware of the innate contradiction, or the harm they invite.
Naturally breathable, Proyog is meant to liberate.To free the body so the mind can focus. It is the polar opposite of synthetic. Soft and stretchable, neither too tight nor too loose, Proyog moves along with the body as you breathe in and out of asanas.
Our purpose is pure and simple.
The perfect yoga wear can distil and deepen your yoga experience. Proyog’s line of yoga wear products is available to serious practitioners worldwide.
They are not only harmful to the body but also the environment. When we wash plastic garments, the micro fibres enter the oceans and pollute the sea life. But 90% yoga practitioners still wear plastic products. We have made it our mission to offer a sustainable alternative.
