Wow! I’m proud. You can now buy a Dutch Smiling Yogi shirt online. How cool it that?! Our little gecko has become a big star with it’s own clothing line: t-shirts for men, t-shirt for women and even for teddy bears.
It was only a few months ago that we started working on Dutch Smiling Yogi 3.0. A website that could slowly become an online yoga & tantra database and an online community, where yoga friends would share their knowledge and love for yoga with all those who are interested in yoga, healthy living, yummy food, peace and travelling. That website needed a new face. A new logo. Something fun, but still a bit manly.
Hanuman was an option. The Hindy monkey god, who always forgets he’s divine. Ganesha as well, the God with the elephant head that removes obstacles that are in your way. But we wanted something neutral and more personal. It became a little gecko. Why? Because, long, long time ago, when I was travelling through Australia I worked for a long time in the bush. I slept in a room that hardly had any walls. But on the little walls there were, were always cockroaches. I can’t say I’m a big fan of them, but luckily there was a gecko as well and the little gecko would always eat the cockroaches for me. So the gecko became a symbol for ‘safety’.
The gecko needed a color as well. Having a Dutch origin, orange was chosen. And to make it look a bit more after me, it got a little rooster head. The talented Sara Bigatti designed it and it found it’s place on this website and our You Tube channel. And now it also founds it’s way to t-shirts: a Dutch Smiling Yogi shirt. As said before they come in men’s and women’s style. Regular shirts and yoga shirts. So if you like our little gecko, check out our online shop.
Next to our shirts you’ll find there Yoga courses for beginners and a Thai Yoga massage tutorial; guiding you through an amazing relaxing Thai yoga massage that you can give to and receive from a partner of friend.
With the courses we want to spread our love for yoga and with the shirts we make sure we can keep sharing.
Hope to see you somewhere on this beautiful planet; in a Dutch Smiling Yogi shirt. 😉
