THE WOMEN WHO INSPIRE US

We love to connect with passionate people who share our values for sustainability and healthy living.

Maude Hirst

Maude is a born and bred East Londoner. She's an actor, writer, and meditation/yoga teacher best known for her role as Helga in the hit TV show 'Vikings’. She is passionate about connecting people to their true power and essence.

"The dream is to make meditation and yoga accessible to as many people as I can reach in order to help people heal their internal world.

My best fashion tip is to wear what makes you feel wonderful. Don’t dress for other people, dress for the feeling your clothes give you.

GAI+LISVA bring a perfect balance of comfort and beauty. I love the feeling of the material on my skin and the simplicity of the designs."

Karina Vihta

Karina is an avid learner with a passion for life and finding beauty in all its experiences. She is currently a statistician studying for a DPhil in Clinical Medicine at the University of Oxford. She is also a yoga, fitness and lyrical jazz teacher, on an ongoing process of bettering her heart, mind and body.

"Health for me is in the heart, mind, and body and achieved by fuelling these with a balanced set of experiences and by accepting the whole rainbow of emotions and expressing these. It is also about finding the activities that will get your body moving and your heart and mind dancing with joy whenever you practice these, and eating with an awareness that we are what we eat."

Lauren Engelke

Lauren is a sustainable stylist living between New York, Wisconsin, and Miami, enjoying every moment of life with her husband, Tim, and their two dogs, Fran & Jost.

"I feel better when I am living my values. It feels good to get dressed in the morning and think to myself that the workers who made the clothing received a fair wage, and are safe and happy in their own homes." 

Why GAI+LISVA?

GAI+LISVA makes perfect, seasonless essentials. I love that my G+L pieces complement my wardrobe year-round!

Miriam Swartz

Miriam describes herself as an energetic, healthy and insanely strong girl full of zest and energy that is kept grounded through her contact with nature.

"Health for me is not only about what I eat and how I exercise. It's a holistic approach to life where everything from relations and diet to breathing is considered."

Stephanie Duval

Stephanie is a Belgian mom, wife, author and entrepreneur, who currently lives in Switzerland and loves coffee, travel, reading and photography.

My best fashion tip is...

"Be honest with yourself. Why are you wearing this? Does it make you feel good, or do others make you feel good when they see you in it? There’s no harm in either, but be conscious of why you love a certain style. If you let others rule over you too often, you might lose track of what you really like."

Linda Sannesmoen

I am a happy hedonist with a mission to inspire and empower people to make healthy and sustainable choices for themselves, others and our planet.

Health for me is the most important requisite for happiness.

I feel better when I have kissed my family, worked out, ate plants, smiled at strangers, made sustainable choices, spread positive vibes and inspired others do all the same.
