From activewear to supplements and gear - what are a few of your must have wellness items?
A good quality yoga mat. There is nothing more annoying than slipping and sliding all over your mat in a class! You want to encouragethe sweat, not try and avoid it for fear of face-planting out of your downward dog! I have collaborated with Yellow Willow to create a range of mats where the more you sweat the more they grip! And they are all latex, silicone, toxic glue, PVC and phthalates free!
When you’re practicing barre at home or yoga in a studio, you’ll know the power of a good yoga mat. They help your practice to be its most effective, stop you from slipping, and enhance your experience on the mat. That experience can be taken up even a notch further with a beautiful design to stare at while you’re in Downward Dog. So that’s why we adore Yellow Willow....
With beautiful designs and exceptional quality, Yellow Willow is a perfection combination of style and performance. The intricate and abstract designs are a sure way to make heads turn, even in forward fold. Seriously, if you’re going to face plant in hand stand (because face it, we all do), then may as well fall on a stylish, pink mandala design. Plus, the micro suede top fabric is bonded to 100% biodegradable rubber to give your grip and softness. Style, flow, performance – what’s not to love?
