Nashville, TN (October 6, 2017) – MONQ®, LLC the home of the Original Personal Essential Oil Diffuser is proud to announce the acquisition of the assets of Jupiter, Florida-based JIVA, maker of swimwear, loungewear, and activewear for women.

“MONQ® has recently acquired an amazing brand that we have found to be beautifully aligned with the core values that make both of our companies so perfect to integrate. I completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training together with Nikki (Co-Founder of JIVA) in Jupiter, Florida, and found that we were both inspired to make the world a better place through our entrepreneurial endeavors. We are excited to offer JIVA Activewear to our MONQ® customers giving them even more choices to live and enjoy a healthy lifestyle.” says Dr. Eric Fishman.

Founded by Nikki and Remi Aliseo, JIVA was born out of an authentic need for freedom, creativity, and easy living. The women began JIVA four years ago as a homegrown business and has since became a leader in high-quality yoga wear for women. The company has recently introduced other styles of clothing including swimwear and loungewear.

“We are so excited to have integrated JIVA with such a vibrant company like MONQ. JIVA comes from a place of authenticity and soul that both my sister and I have built from the ground up. MONQ and JIVA both tap into the health and wellness community as well as modern-day minds. While JIVA’s approach is feeling good from the outside in, MONQ’s is from the inside out. We are thrilled to be able to work together and share another piece of the puzzle for healthy living” says Remi Aliseo.

Nikki and Remi believe fully in living a life they love and being an endless source of inspiration for others to do the same. They create products that make sense for a life in motion, products that move with you through your day. Whether a playful day beginning with meditation and/or yoga, and ending with a run to the grocery store, with office time in between, JIVA was created to fit all lifestyles.

MONQ® is a Nashville-based company that created the original personal essential oil diffuser. Each MONQ® Diffuser is made with all-natural ingredients and they are distributed worldwide.
