Illuminate Your Life

I love yoga! It is so calming and centering for me. I have been hooked for several years now and try to incorporate it into my workout routine atleast a couple of times per week. It may just be a few sun salutations in the morning or a full blown yoga workout. I do like to know that I've worked out, so I like my yoga to be challenging.

One thing that you need when doing yoga is a GREAT yoga mat. I found Aurorae Yoga Mats and have fallen in yoga love!! These mats are extra thick and extra long (72") so that you don't have your arms or feet hanging off the ends when doing stretches. They are durable and it also has a great focal point so that you keep your neck in neutral spine and keep your concentration in line as well. This really helps to get the postures correct.

Aurorae Yoga Mats come in 5 different colors so you can pick the one that best suits your personality.

The yoga mat colors are:

Violet - Spiritual, soothing, calming, telepathic, healing, relief and meditative

Seamist - Soothing, renewal, intellect, nature, self control, gentile and harmony

Solar - Creative, inspiring, energy, compassionate, warmth, family and stability
Ocean - Relaxation, sedate, caring, cooking, spirit, trustworthy and attentive

Infinity - Strength, sophistication, professionalism, potential of endless possibilities

I have the Solar mat and love it!

  1. I need a psychadelic one because there are elements in each color that reflect my inner self. Violet and Seamist reach out to me most, then Solar and Ocean.

    Yoga makes me feel so good, I should try to do it more often.

  3. Oh that sea mist is calling me!

    I love yoga. I can feel such a difference in my day and my body when I take each morning to do my yoga.

  5. Hi, Stopping by from The Domestication of the (Once) Single Girl! I love BeachBody products - I have Slim in 6, Yoga Booty Ballet and of course P90x! ;) But I'm preggo with #5 right now, so the X will have to wait for a few months. I LOVE the Yoga Mats - I really like the Solar one too - seems very motivating!

  15. I had a hard time deciding between seamist and infinity, but I think I like infinity. I don't think I have seen a dark mat like that before, but I think it might help improve focus and not be distracting in any way. I love yoga. My husband swears I have grown taller since starting it. I do think it has made a marked improvement in my posture!
