Sometimes life presents opportunities that are just too good to pass up. Recently I was offered a chance to blog for my friends at the online store for Its Simply Zen www.ItsSimplyZen.com. I have used, and recommended their site because I love their quality product lines, discount prices and free shipping. It is extremely important to me, however, to give my blog readers more than an advertising pitch. I promise to stay true to my real self and share my thoughts, trials, inquisitiveness and knowledge. My hope is that, through your comments, I will gain insight into what my readers are thinking and what they would like to hear more about. We will discuss product reviews, types of yoga, meditation tips, retreat reviews among other things.
The Manduka eKO Yoga Mat is the heaviest mat I have ever owned but also the most luxurious for the level of cushion it provides. It has a lovely texture and unrolled perfectly flat from the very first time I used it. The lime green is beautiful and I didnt notice any offensive smell as others have commented on ecological yoga mats.
I purchased my first yoga towel a couple of years ago after growing weary of the beach towel I had been toting around to classes. I am a simple yogi and try not to buy into the latest trends in fear of becoming (gasp!) … mainstream. The allure of the slip-resistant nubs on the Yogitoes Towel proved too much for me and I’ve used it ever since. That is until I experienced the Manduka eQua Yoga Towel.
Many cultures, especially Hindu, regard the sun as the giver of life and a spiritual center. Honoring this spiritual force, many yogis start and end their day with sun salutation poses. I am one such yogi.
However, as with all facets of my personal yoga and meditation practice, I have customized this ritual to meet my own needs and desires. For me it’s not so much about honoring the sun as a spiritual guide, but honoring myself and my intentions for my day and for my life.
