Holiday Gift Guide: Aurorae Yoga Mat & Accessories Review & Giveaway

 Welcome to The Freebie Junkie's Holiday Gift Guide

Gift: Aurorae Yoga Products
Category: Friend & Family Gift - a fabulous gift to kick start the New Year Fitness activities
Review & Giveaway
 
Aurorae Yoga was one of my wonderful sponsors in the September Blogmania Giveaway Extravaganza and so I had to include their products in my Holiday Gift Guide as I can truly attest to their superior yoga mats and accessories.
 
Here's my review that I wrote for the September giveaway.
 
Photobucket

 I'm at at that stage where I cannot eat what I want and stay the same size.  Unfortunately, thats a fact of life and I'm just going to have to fit in more workouts or eat less.  I think it will have to be a combination of both as I do love my food and luckily I do like to workout.  With our busy schedules, home work outs is my main stay after the kids go to bed.  The key pieces of equipment that I use for a varied workout are my elliptical machine, hand weights and yoga mat.  I love my yoga mat as I can use it at home and outside.  The mat provides support during my endless stomach crunches and occasionally I'll try some yoga poses that I learnt from boot camp.
 


My current yoga mat has seen better days and recently I went about searching for a new mat that was designed with eco friendly material but yet affordable.  I found Aurorae Yoga online and loved that their yoga mats are designed with eco friendly material, free from Phthalates and also affordable.  Their collection includes top of the line Yoga Mats, Yoga Slip Free Rosin Bags, Yoga Sport Sweat Towels, and their latest product, the Denim Yoga Sak.

For my review, I received the Seamis Yoga Mat, Yoga Slip free Rosin Bag, Yoga Sport Sweat Towel, Yoga Strap Organic Mat Wash and Denim Yoga Sak.  I love that the Aurorae Yoga Mats are longer in length and thicker than my current mat which should last me a long time.  The 1/4" thickness provided just enough cushion and support to protect my back, knees and joints by absorbing the impact especially during my outdoor workouts.  My children love to play on my mat and do their mini push ups and the organic mat wash came in handy to clean up their dirty little hand prints.

The denim yoga sak is the newest addition to the Aurorae Yoga line.  I received the Midnight Denim bag which is a dark washed denim,  I found it to be really unique and fashionable, yet super functional.  Not only was the yoga sak perfect for storing the yoga mat it is also super roomy and I was able to fit extra clothes and my shower items.  The yoga sak also features a large cargo pocket, perfect for storing the yoga sport sweat towel, yoga slip free rosin bag and organic mat wash, plus there is a zip pocket to secure my keys and an adjustable strap perfect for taking to boot camp without having to take a separate bag.

Now I need to include Yoga regularly into my workout routine as I am totally equipped for a relaxing and positive yoga experience.
