Whether your moving through a vinyasa flow or coming in to Shavasana, that funky smell? It's your mat! Think about it, when was the last time you cleaned your yoga mat? And I mean cleaned; Hot soapy water with a dry by sunlight? Probably never, right?
Meet Mat Renew by @MandukaYoga. This all-purpose yoga mat cleaner is formulated with organic essential oils to naturally clean and disinfect, leaving your mat smelling fresh. Simply spray Mat Renew on your yoga gear after your session and wipe down with a dampened cloth.
Available in 3 scents: Tranquil Lavender, Soothing Citrus, and my personal favourite: Energizing Gingergrass! Mat Renew is available in a 2oz bottle tucks easily into my yoga bag for on-the-go refreshening and retails for only $5. Trust me, your nose and the noses of those around you will be thankful.
This is the last week you can save $25 off of your Manduka purchase. Wondering if these yoga mats are worth the hype? Well, I own 3 of variying thickness so I have one for every occasion: travel, terrain, pro.
Listen, I have purchased super cute, inexpensive yoga mats and they disintegrate. I believe in buying the best mat that you can, even if that means using your crappy one a little while longer. #BeingHonest
Manduka yoga mats are durable, made from recycled materials, and ultra-sticky. No matter how hot the room or hot sweaty my body, I have never slipped off of a Manduka mat and knowing how secure I am makes me relax and focus on my practice rather than modifying moves so I do not fall.

My husband stepped up my workout game with Power Block Dumbbells. Each block is adjustable by 3 pounds up to 24 per hand. Lock in the weight you need and leave the rest behind; This one block saves the space of 8 separate weights! I'm ready to start round 2 of the #FBBooty workout and these PowerBlocks will power through the Fitness Blender sets. I will see massive results in my ass by Closer To The Sun 4. Suns out, buns out, till the fun runs out.
This Winter calls for an added layer of protection. With one snowstorm after another followed by days and days of rain, everyone can benefit from Treatment Oil. Am antioxidant-rich cocktail of sunflower, olive and jojoba oils which will soothe the driest of skins.

Today was the day where it all went wrong and I was not making it to class.... but I pushed through, adjusted my attitude - which was more important them adjusting my schedule. I couldn't find my pass.... couldn't find the garage door opener..... Made 2 wrong turns. I started to come home and got pretty close when the +CorePower Yoga app saved the day. I logged on real quick and found another class starting only 30 minutes later.
Since I missed CorePower 1 I grabbed another day of Yoga Sculpt, new instructor, new moves. I never recommend doubling down on back to back classes but I am determined to make the most of my 30 day pass. Am I ever glad that I did. It was divine.
I won a super cool giveaway with +LATHER and +Core Power Yoga that included 1 month of unlimited CPY classes. Challenge accepted.
Today I jumped in head first and went with Yoga Sculpt. Turns out you should do a few other Core Power Yoga classes, first, to prepare yourself for this class. When muscle meets yoga, Sculpt is born. Boost metabolism and build lean muscle mass as you move to upbeat tracks. You’ll combine free weights with CorePower Yoga 2 (C2) sequencing and cardio to intensify each pose while mixing in strength-training moves like squats, lunges and bicep curls. It is recommended that you take at least one CorePower level 1 or 2 (C1 or C2) class before a Yoga Sculpt class. Missed that part.
