YANA Active - About Us


At YANA™ Active our mission is to create activewear that is Built to Perform and #MadetoEmpower. 

We design and manufacture luxury, sustainability focused activewear for Women. Our activewear is multifunctional; allowing you to go from the gym to the coffee shop, effortlessly and in style.

Over the past four years, we’ve created a community of like-minded women across the UK. In 2024, we launched our Wellness Workshops in the North East: events that are designed to educate, empower & inspire, and we aim to bring these to you across the UK.

Sustainability was a founding pillar of YANA™. We focus on being sustainable by using recycled and organic materials, and where possible manufacturing as many pieces from our collections in the UK.

Our Inspiration 

North East-based sisters Charlotte and Sophie Wilson, founded YANA™ Active to create a luxury activewear brand, focused on sustainability and community.

The sisters were captivated by the ancient Amazonians, a female-only tribe who fiercely supported each other. A sisterhood who supported, defended and empowered each other: something that sisters’ Charlotte and Sophie wanted to capture within the YANA™ community.

The YANA™ community is made up of ‘Everyday Warriors’. We believe women are warriors every day of the week and they deserve luxury activewear that is Built to Perform and #MadeToEmpower.

Welcome to the YANA tribe, Everyday Warrior!

Love, Charlotte & Sophie

YANA's Core Values

All living things are made up of DNA, and YANA™ is a brand that if full of life. YANA™ is made up of four key values that we hold ourselves to in everything we do:

Community – to bring like-minded women together

Empowerment – to create activewear that helps you to perform: feeling good whilst looking good

Humility – to be a brand with a heartbeat, where honestly is an integral part of YANA™ brand DNA

Sustainability – to minimise our carbon footprint by using recycled fabrics, natural fibres and materials, and manufacturing as many of our products in the UK to avoid Co2 emissions from long haul transportation
