Total Body Relaxation Stretch

Yoga Design Lab

As you ladies know, I LOVE my yoga.

Yoga is one of the few fitness disciplines that I am not certified in, and I really enjoy that fact, because I can actually go into a class and not think about how I would structure a class, or the music, or anything else but my practice.

It actually lets me tune everything out and focus on how my body feels and what it needs. 

Since moving to Minneapolis, I have really put a focus on being kind to my body — as opposed to living in NYC, where everything was stressful, including my workout schedule. So, I’ve been very conscious of making sure I get 3 yoga classes in each week to help with my stress levels and flexibility.

Well, after 9 months of using my crappy Target yoga mat…it was seriously time for a new yoga mat!

Luckily my friends over at Yoga Design Lab sent me their Chevron Mat as well as their Yoga Towel at the most perfect time!

For the last week I have used my new mat every. single. day. to test it out for you lovely ladies! And I am obsessed with it! Not only does this mat have amazing quality…but it’s absolutely BEAUTIFUL.

Here are some other reasons to love Yoga Design Lab Mats:

  • Their mats are made from natural tree rubber and microfiber
  • All their mats are eco-friendly — they’re biodegradable!
  • Free of Latex, silicone, and phthalates
  • You can wash it in your washing machine for easy cleaning
  • Non-slip…like seriously! I have really sweat palms (yuck, I know :P), so I  forever have been battling slipping on my mat. This mat actually grips better the more you sweat! ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • They also donate $1 from every purchase to support Urban Youth Yoga Programs in need…I LOVE when companies give back! It’s so inspiring!

To celebrate my new mat, I put together a quick Total Body Yoga Stretch Routine to help you relax tight muscles, and maintain your flexibility.

This routine is the perfect sequence to add in after a workout no matter if you’re running or strength training, or it’s perfect to do at the end of a long day. Ever muscles group will feel longer and more relaxed! Enjoy!

** There is no printable version for this routine, it is follow-along-style! ๐Ÿ™‚ 

What’s your favorite way to de-stress and focus on your own needs?
