Morning! I woke up early so I could make it to an AM Mixed Power yoga class. It was a new teacher for me, and I loved the music she played â€“ lots of Snow Patrol!
Last week, I invested in a Yogitoes towel. For a long, long time, I thought Yogitoes were a complete rip-off â€“ they are about $50+ â€“ but I finally broke down and bought one because I noticed that nearly everyone in the studio used one.
Since the classes are pretty much all â€˜hotâ€™ yoga classes, Iâ€™m dripping with the sweat the entire time, and itâ€™s really slippery! I was used a regular towel, but I started to notice that I could NOT get the stank out of the towels even after washing them a few times.
Love, love, love Yogitoes! The rubber beads on the bottom of the towel stick to the mat and prevent slipping; itâ€™s machine washable; and it hasnâ€™t gotten stinky yet (though four classes and three washes). The towel has a solid orange dot at the top of the mat, and it serves as an excellent focal point during balance poses.
Pre-yoga, I had a simple cereal bowl:
In the mix:
- Greek yogurt
- Chia seeds
- Raw oatmeal
- Sesame cashews
Off to be productive!
Was one piece of workout equipment or gear that you originally deemed â€œa waste of moneyâ€ but now cannot live without? I kind of feel that way about my GPS watchâ€¦ It was worth every pricey penny!
