2015 is almost here which means it’s time to look ahead to yoga trends for the new year!
The busier we get, the more difficult it is to schedule in a yoga practice at a studio. As much as we all love the energy of a live yoga class with an instructor to help us, it can take up a lot of time to commute to a class, practice for an hour or longer, and then drive home. Sometimes, we only have a short amount of time to fit it in. Thus, a home practice is an awesome tool to have! The only problem is, how do you make your home feel like a calm and peaceful yoga space? That’s where we come in.
The only real essential for a home yoga practice is you. However, having a yoga mat and some props can help you safely get deeper into the poses and get more out of your home practice. Aurorae has affordable and reliable yoga mats, as well as props such as blocks, straps, and towels.
Once you have the yoga mat and accessories you like, it’s time to set the mood. Making your home into a sanctuary can help you stay focused with your poses instead of being distracted. If you want your home to have that peaceful energy of a studio, try our aromatherapy! We suggest having our lavender meditative mist and lavender soy candle near by. Right before you start your home practice, just light the candle and give the room a spray of lavender mist and you will instantly feel more peaceful and ready to practice.
Non-slip socks will be a bigger trend in 2015 as more and more people try dynamic fitness classes, such as yoga combined with Pilates or dance. Since most of these classes don’t use mats the whole time, the socks have grips on the bottom which help the practitioner safely move through yoga poses, Pilates moves, or dance moves. Check out Aurorae’s non-slip 5 toe socks available at our website and Amazon.com.
As a world, we are moving more towards green transportation. This means more carpooling, public transportation, and bike riding. This also means we often have to carry with us what we need for the day; instead of throwing our yoga mats and gym bags in the back of the car for our after work yoga class, we carry it with us all day. So we need something that is big enough for all of our stuff, comfortable to carry, and cute. That’s where our sling backpack comes in. Our sling backpack is a perfectly sized and comfortable bag that can carry it all: your laptop, yoga mat, change of clothes, valuables, toiletries, and more! The bag is designed to fit comfortably on the shoulder and back while you walk or bike to and from your yoga class and beyond.
