These gorgeous Magic Carpet Yoga Mats are the best if you are looking for inspiration and are willing to splurge a bit.
I've been really getting into yoga these past couple months, and by getting into it I mean searching for a yoga studio near by and dreaming about my success. When I was in college, we had an awesome recreation center that offered a variety of unlimited classes for a semester fee of $50. It was an awesome deal considering the classes included yoga, pilates, Zumba, cardio, kickboxing, and so much more. I've been struggling with finally purchasing a pass and everything is seems so darn expensive now that I am out of college. But then I remember the friendly little site, Groupon! (No this post is not sponsored by Groupon, all though that would be nice!) That was the little kick in the butt I guess I needed!

So since I'm feeling all zen and getting myself in a "let's get healthy" mood - let's look at some sweet yoga essentials you and I would both love! They are prefect for toting around whether you plan to go from yoga to work/work to yoga or purely practicing in your own home. Grab a fitness bag and pile these things on in #treatyoself Hair Ties | Gaiam Yoga Mat | Bkr Water Bottle | Yoga Bag/Fitness bag | Facial Wipes |
Forever 21 Yoga Pants | Post Drink/Snack | Headband | Tranquil Candle (for at home practice) |Post Yoga Sweat Shirt | 20 Min Yoga Video (when you can't make it to the studio) |Yoga Block

A fun tip I learned - from watching endless Tone It Up videos - is to pack your fitness bag with all your normal essentials so you are ready to go. It's a great idea to purchase a double of each so you don't have to get up and pack it all in the morning or after work. Just grab your bag and you're off!

Do you have an favorite fitness or yoga essentials? I'd love to hear! I'm always looking :)

PS If any of you are in the Chicago area and are interested in going to free yoga at Millennium park on Saturdays - totally let me know! It would be so fun!
