Namaste...today is International Yoga Day. I began practicing Yoga a decade ago and have been a fan ever since. I do remember that before my first personal experience with yoga, my first thought was "yawn..." and I was concerned that afterwards I would feel that I hadn't worked my body. Well, I was completely wrong on both accounts. Yoga has been life changing for me. It not only helps to cope with stress and the daily struggles in one's every day life, but it has fostered a kindness towards my self from myself, not to mention that it is one of my favorite ways in which to "workout". If you're looking to become stronger, leaner and more flexible, it is time to give yoga a try. Regardless if you are a novice, or regarded as a yogi, we are celebrating International Yoga Day with some of our favorite trends and an exciting giveaway.
Vega-My yoga class is early in the morning and although I am hungry the thought of a meal doesn't work for me. I can't leave the house on an empty stomach either. I have been loving the yummy, plant-based Vega Clean Protein powder (chocolate makes a yummy smoothie) and have been using it as a great first meal of the day. and for a natural boost of energy, Yummy tasting Vega Clean Energy powder gives you the energy you need without artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners, preservatives, GMOs, dairy, or soy ingredients.
SoftScience-These clogs are perfect for heading to and from Yoga. They slip on with ease, and super comfy and fit the relaxed yoga vibe without appearing sloppy. The Daisy clog from Softscience is a new canvas clog that offers great foot comfort to mamas-to-be, yoga lovers, foot pain suffers, and gals on their feet all day. Using the comfort of Trileon, the Daisy clog was designed by footwear executives previously with Sperry, Reebok and Crocs. They feel like you are standing on millions of microscopic pillows which cushion every step.
Manduka: As I learned quickly, Yoga is all at once calming and physically demanding. Once your body gets heated up, it is hard to keep steady on a sweaty yoga mat. Yogitoes to the rescue! Yogitoes Towels have awesome grips on the bottom that prevent slipping and sliding during the rigors of class. It is lightweight, extra long and works perfectly paired with your favorite yoga mat. Need more reason to feel zen-like during class? Yogitoes are made using recycled bottles requiring 66% less energy to produce and all dyes are free of AZO, lead, and heavy-metals.
Of course, having the right activewear lets you focus on your form and breathing without having to tug on uncomfortable clothes not ready for the performance challenge. Soybu has long been a favorite activewear brand of mine.
