Since starting Project PAL and specifically Pup Tees by Project PAL, we have had the opportunity to meet so many incredible, generous, and unique people that we never would have crossed paths with otherwise. This is most definitely the case with Erica! We met Erica through the donation-based yoga class we did at her studio, Vibetality.
Not only did Vibetality generously offer this opportunity for us to raise money at their studio, but they even allowed us to bring one of our adoptable dogs (June) with us that day. Their studio has such a great feel and we loved every minute of our morning there.
We were so excited to meet Erica, she is warm, genuine, adorable, and just an all-around wonderful person. (After providing us with so many ways to raise money she even personally purchased Pup Tees!).
Erica is an AZ native, and at the age of 15 she started doing yoga when she was diagnosed with scoliosis, she got her certification in 2008, and opened Vibetality in 2013. Erica owns the studio with her partner, Patrick. The studio is truly a blend of Erica’s passion for yoga, health, and happiness combined with Patrick’s mission to use technology to enhance health and well-being.
Vibetality has everything from yoga, to a float tank, kettlebell workouts to massage, nutrition programs to meditation. The goal is to offer as many options as possible to help people feel better and live better. It is not a one-size-fits-all journey! Erica and Patrick also love giving back and helping local charities. They have a heart for shelter animals since they have FIVE rescues of their own (a polydactyl senior cat, a sweet mutt pup adopted from AAWL, a pittie, a jack russell, and an orange tabby!).

So, let’s see what Erica has to say about styling her Pup Tees:
I am a sucker for clothes that feel good and DO good! My sister turned
the world in need of protection and each style goes to a specific
elephant and they share the story of the elephant you’re helping.
I am wearing the “show me the shelter puppies” tank – I love this one!!
No shoes or fancy jewelry for me because I like the sense of as much
freedom as possible lol. Bare feet for yoga, no necklaces hanging in my
face for downdog, and no rings getting in the way of hand binds and
I love that loose fitting clothes are making a come back so this tee is
a no brainer! I have a form fitting lululemon tank underneath so I can
practice any yoga pose w/o worrying about my shirt rolling up.
I have to admit to having quite a few lululemon pieces in the yoga
wardrobe. I held out for a long time but finally realized that they are
awesome and they last forever. I have this pair of capris in 3 different
I also support the heck out of our good friends at Peixoto Coffee House.
We carry their nitro cold brew at the studio and it’s kept me going
through the long hours of building your own business =) They are an
accessory I always have near by!
