Named after yoga’s powerhouse Crane position and tension-busting Lion breathing exercise, this local activewear line has taken over Boston’s athleisure scene, opening three shops in the past six months and doing brisk business online. We love the fashionable details—the long-sleeve tee’s thumb holes, the capri tights’ mesh calf, the jacket’s asymmetrical zip. And whether we’re working out or just hanging out, the soft, moisture-wicking fabric lets us exercise our right to comfort.
