Hi, my name is Victoria Thygesen and I am the founder of Creative Yoga Wear. I have always wanted to work for myself but I've been on quite a journey to figure out exactly what and how I was going to do that! I am definitely what you would call a multi-passionate entrepreneur, with a background as a Holistic Life Coach and Reiki Practitioner.
When I started Creative Yoga Wear initially, I was drawn to the idea of being able to be more creative - I create many of the designs myself and I just love colors and patterns! I could have created designs for many different industries, but I chose yoga wear because I wanted it to be more than just designs and clothes - I also wanted to be part of a compassionate and soulful community. I have been completely blown away by the amazing connections I have made over the last year and it has inspired me to expand the CYW brand beyond 'just' yoga wear.
I have always been searching for myself, and for a way to create a business and a life where I could be myself. Why else work for myself, if I don't like what I do or have to pretend to be someone or something that I am not? So rather than stretch myself over several different business ideas, I decided to bring it all together under one umbrella, which is Creative Yoga Wear. My vision is to bring like-minded people together with a passion for yoga, energy and chakra work, mindfulness, creativity, fun, soulful connections and much more! And ultimately, I want to inspire and empower as many women as possible, to have the Courage to be themselves! Because it takes courage! It takes Courage to find out who you are, and to choose to be that person but, you don't have to do it alone. The CYW family is here to support you and encourage you and be part of your journey. We are not here to preach - we are not perfect - we are on this journey with you and want to share our thoughts, ideas, passions and inspiration.
On a practical note, I am from Denmark, but have been living on the west coast of Ireland for more than 11 years. I have always loved Ireland (my favorite color is green ☘️) and this is my home now. Whereas CYW currently only ships yoga wear within the US, our online community is open to absolutely anybody who feels inspired and drawn to be part of it.
I can't wait to connect with you and hear your story!
- Victoria 💕
