Yoga happens outside all the time, so why shouldn't there be sunnies for yogis? Don't yogis need protection from the sun, too? Of course they do! That's why I'm enamored by Vira Sun, "the original sunnies for yogis". I'm giving away 2 pairs of these babies, so make sure to keep reading through the end.
I first saw a pair of Vira Suns on my yoga-instructor-friend, Lauren Imparato, during a yoga class in the middle of Times Square. She was wearing them with such ease, I wondered how they didn't slip off. I had to get myself a pair! Here they are, arriving to me in the mail! Yessssss!
What do you think? I absolutely love these sunglasses! They have a wayfarer style (which is so classic that they're always IN) and they're made with polarized, UV400 protection lenses. Not only do they keep you from squinting but they'll save those precious eye corners of yours from sun damage. If you're 35 or older (not that I am...), this is EVERYTHING.
Vira Sun's colorways are the bomb. I selected a tortoise shell combo with lenses that reflect in green and orange. The arms are made with natural bamboo, giving these frames a super light feel (and very little slippage). You can also get them in rosewood, which is more reddish in color.
Vira Sun sunnies go beyond just yoga. They're great for an active lifestyle including sport, travel, city cycling, pool and beach time. Since they're not ridiculously expensive (starting at $35) or easily broken like most designer sunglasses with heavier frames and decorative elements, all you do is put them on and GO! They're as carefree as your summer weekends.
On the hush: If all goes as planned, I'm hoping to include these inside my next Quarterly Box #MIZ09!
It's honestly just a matter of choosing your favorite colorway, which was the hardest part for me! Here are some more colorways to check out. Click the image below to view them all.

You don't have to be a yogi but I'd like to know what kind of outdoor fitness you're doing that necessitates a pair of these awesome sunnies. Can you handle that?
