I love. I have loved. I will love.

if i had to pick one? running. i love to run in the woods and on the beach and can’t imagine not doing that.
but i love them both - they feed off of each other! running improves my yoga and yoga improves my running. they both make my body feel amazing in different ways. i don’t think i would have started doing yoga or kept up with it without my love of running. i started doing yoga as a way to appreciate and care for my body because i put it through a lot of miles and a lot of tough training.
thank you for the reminder! i love how many reminders i get now, you guys are the best. and yes i will try to! :)
and anyone else out there - 10 on 10 tomorrow! join me?
# scorpion variation
of yoga poses for building toward a particular goal (like an inversion or arm balance) or even for a particular sport/part of the body, feel free to leave them in my ask box! i’m thinking of doing a flow-by-picture series where i try and make up a flow (focused on a goal/body part), show you guys in pictures, and include what song(s) you can play while doing them :)
i definitely will! i’m so glad you guys like them, i got several messages like this today wanting me to do more! those are both great ideas, consider them in the works!
hahah thank you! i’m happy you enjoy it! :) xx

hey! mine was a bit slippery for the first 2-3 times I used it (and it had a bit of a rubbery smell!) but then it went away and I found it very grippy! I practiced on it daily and I think that helped! it continues to get broken in as I use it :)
so incredibly sweet! thank you so much for sending me this. so glad that I brightened your day and pleased to meetcha as well!
haha thank you, you’re the best. i have a strange love of being matchy-matchy in any way/shape/form so i’m glad someone else enjoys it too!
oh that’s awesome! thank you for sharing! yeah it’s definitely a bit heavy but I don’t mind carrying it :) so glad you love yours!
i have the regular eQua towel! i find it’s great for both hot moksha flow (35 degrees celsius) and Bikram (43 degrees celsius). it also works well in regular practice if you find your feet slipping, just lay it out and sprinkle a few drops of water on it from your water bottle and it’ll be super sticky. i like to focus the water where my hands and feet typically go for downward dog if i’m using it in regular practice!
i think if you’re a person who sweats A LOT and does Bikram regularly the hot towel would be better, but if you want it more for daily practice and hot yoga the regular one will be just fine! i’ve never tried the HOT one in practice but i’ve felt the material - it’s much thicker and more plush for absorbing water. the regular one is thin and feels like suede! mine gets completely soaked in Bikram and is still grippy for me when i stretch out in down dog after class.
they are the Nike Wildhorse GTX trail shoe! they have a Goretex upper so they’re completely waterproof and the fit is like a track spike! I LOVE THEM SO MUCH
thank you so much! I’m so happy you found something you like here! :)
