So I’m gonna be honest, I didn’t fully hit the yoga trend until about a year ago, and with that said I’m not sure how I lived without it for the past 20 years. I can honestly say I can’t go a day without getting a practice in.
Yoga for me is a way to relax my mind and body and just remind myself that self love is important. Even if its 10 minutes a day, its SO important to refocus on your daily intentions to improve your quality of life. Now, I’m by no means a professional yogi, but I do have some tips to improve your practice and flow. So grab your mat and get ready to be zen.
Okay, I’ll admit, I am Lulu obsessed, but who isn’t? When I first started practicing I had a 12$ mat from Target that was HORRIBLE. So, I finally splurged and got a Lululemon Mat, and it was probably the best purchase I’ve ever made. If you’re regularly practicing yoga I highly recommend investing in a good mat, you’ll thank me later.
To really get in your zen whether you’re at home or a studio, I love using essential oil diffusers to enhance the room, it makes all the difference.
So I don’t know about you guys, but when I do yoga I am dripping, like someone just dunked an entire bucket of water on me, yeah, not cute. So to compensate, I always have to have a towel with me. This one from Lululemon is perfect if you’re on the go because its tiny yet it absorbs all the sweat.
As for outfits I love to keep it simple, yet cozy. When I practice I only wear a sports bra and leggings. If I wear anything over my sports bra I just feel too claustrophobic. For my leggings I love any Lululemon legging, (how many times am I going to mention Lululemon in this) and alo yoga leggings.
Finally, you’re gonna need to hydrate during and after your practice, so you might as well invest in a sturdy bottle. My hydroflask goes with me everywhere, and it keeps my drinks cold for hours!
So these are just some of my essentials I need when I do my practice. So grab your mat and get ready to be zen.
