Supporting you to express your truest self
In everything we do, we are committed to shaping a society where you can wholeheartedly embrace your authentic self, express your creativity with untamed freedom and extend your love to anyone. We celebrate the beauty of diversity, embracing people of all orientations, straight or gay, black or white, people of all shapes and sizes, whether young or old, and regardless of gender. Because, the essence of self-expression and self-realization is woven into the very fabric of Puka Wear's identity. You were born to paint your world with your unique colors and to pursue your dreams unapologetically. So, go ahead, BE YOUR COLOR and do your thing. Always. Your vibrant palette is what makes the world a more beautiful place.
My name is Maya Santimano and today I stand firmly on the ground and feel the strength from within, expressing what is me. But it was not always easy.
My life is not much different from yours. I followed the path that I thought was expected of me and I continued walking, never really asking why.
Within me lie the cultures of Sweden, Mozambique, and India. In my heart I feel the deep, thick forests of Sweden, I dance to the rhythms of Mozambique, and I chant to the Indian prayers.
With the profound power that lies within the practice of yoga, I started to become aware of my thoughts and of myself. On the yoga mat we take a closer look at ourselves, we see patterns and become conscious of how we behave. From the first day I stood on the yoga mat, everything was changed and I started walking a new path in life. My path, my truth.
The practice of yoga has become a practice of being me. It has turned my world upside down, and then up again into the sky. It has led me to my own path in life, which today has become Puka Wear.
I want to be there, supporting all of you to do the same. Life might be a rollercoaster of emotions, but you will always have that stable, calm feeling in your stomach knowing that it is all part of the plan.
When you wear our leggings you will feel empowered, and feel the energy rushing from deep down inside of you. You are amazing!
