10 Summer Yoga Essentials

summer-yoga-essentials1. Yoga Mat. I get so excited looking at new yoga mats, and the Warrior mat by La Vie Boheme Yoga is no exception. The mat provides inspiration with the quote, “What you seek is seeking you” – Rumi, and it’s absolutely stunning. Get yours here

2. Yoga Bag. This bag by YogaRat is perfect for protecting your yoga mat during hikes to outdoor place. I love it because it has room for your yoga mat and towel, water bottle, snacks and phone. It’s eco-friendly too, being made of recycled plastic bottles.  Find it here US | Canada

3. Bold Leggings. Glitch Leggings by Reebok have a bold, colourful print that’s perfect for summer. Since I wear leggings year round, I need leggings that can go from yoga practice to shopping, and these leggings with the matching bra, a loose black cover up and an infinity scarf screams casual comfort in the summer. Bonus: they’re not black! Get yours here

4. Sports Bra. The Embrace Bra by Roxy has a cute design, a great fit with support for those that need it, is super lightweight, and looks cute under loose cover-ups. I am loving the pink and grey combo for summertime yoga. Get yours here

5. Shorts. You might be nervous to wear shorts to yoga at first, but you’ll be grateful for them afterwards. The matching Move It shorts by Roxy are a must for hot summer days, outdoor yoga, or bikram yoga. The Italian-made spandex is stretchy and supportive for a flattering fit. Get yours here

7. Hoodie. I am crushing on this hoodie by Spiritual Gangster. It is so comfy, and perfect for before and after morning or evening yoga, when it’s just a little chilly in the air. Get yours here

8. Headbands. I absolutely adore these headbands by Yogitoes are amazing. You can use it as a headband, a hair elastic, a sweatband, or to cover your eyes during savasana. I have all four of the new colours because they are so inexpensive, at $5 each, how can you not buy them all? Get yours here

9. Towel. The skidless towel is essential to intense, hot, summer yoga. Whether used in hot yoga or Bikram classes, or outside on a sweaty day, the towel protects your mat, keeps you from sliding around, and gives a new look to your yoga mat. Get yours here

10. Water Bottle. I purchased the AdNArt Flavour It Water Bottle a few months back and it’s one of my favourite recent buys. I like to fill up the removable fruit infuser with lemons or limes and leave it in the fridge until my workout. It’s super pretty to look at, made of glass and makes your water taste great. My daughter loves to mix oranges and strawberries in it! Find it here US | Canada

    This is a great list! It’s hot in Austin this time of year, so I’m sweating more than usual 🙂 I always bring a small towel for me and a big one for my mat.

      Yes a small towel is a good add to this list!
