I’m sorry, but what kind of body do you need to have to do yoga? Oh that’s right, if you have a body, you have the perfect body for yoga.

Great tips here if you’re struggling! I went from just a few seconds last year to holding it for 45 seconds this week (I really don’t practice often, but this video helped loads).

Give it a try!

Stretch Out Sundays: Yoga For Recovery (18 min)

Try Something NEW! Buti Fitness FULL Class (47 minutes)

My new “best thing EVER”, lol. BUTI!

I’ve been secretly DYING to try a Buti class, but haven’t been able to (there are simply none here). Bizzie Gold has uploaded a few full BUTI classes online and I have to say, they’re INCREDIBLE. Right up my alley!

The class is like a fitness remix: yoga fused with dance, plyometrics, conditioning, booty shaking and set to a pretty hype soundtrack. Imagine yoga poses where you’re shaking your booty ALL THE TIME, jumping and moving fast to the beat.

It’s NOT for everyone, but if you like the class too… we would probably have a lot of fun hanging out. :)

"BUTI is a high-intensity workout that fuses yoga and dance with circuits of plyometrics and conditioning. Classes range from 60-90 minutes and consist of deep stretching, BUTI shaking and heart-pounding cardio. BUTI dance moves are taken from various styles that focus on an intense shaking of the hips (and BUTI) including Miami Booty Dance, Brazilain Baile Funk, Hip Hop, Crunk and African Tribal."

A friend of mine (HUGE - tall - dude) recently started working out from home and asked me if I knew of any larger mats to accomodate his size & reduce noise. He ordered the extra long, extra wide mat above, and has fallen in LOVE with it. 

There are a few ‘fancy’ mats on the market that I like (including the round yoga mat pictured above). I use my mats for more than just yoga/pilates (weights at home - cushions the sound). Having a bigger than average mat really allows me to vary my movement while staying on the cushion surface (if you’ve ever done belly roll overs, you know how annoying they can be on anything but carpet). In the past, I’ve always just put 2 mats together, but when one slips, it can spell trouble.

I WANT my own extra large mat, but I do have the round mat at home. It’s puuurty and I love it loads. I like to roll around on it: loads of fun. :)

Here are some of my recent favs/suggestions. Click on the links for more details! Look for mats that won’t slip, are thick, and as ALWAYS read reviews before buying!

Any other unique mats out there? Sharesies?

"What if guys and girls swapped roles at the gym?"

Generally not down with assigned gender roles & stereotypes, but from a purely comedic standpoint, this made me chuckle!

(hilariously, the yoga bit is ME already, lol. Love yoga man bums. Love ‘em).

Hahaha! This was so me!I love yoga now, but I didn’t at first. I felt more confident about it after I got familiar with poses from doing workouts at home. I use quickie yoga videos often for a stretch, warm up/cool down, or as an energizer: good to get the blood flowing. :)If you’re feeling blah today (like me), but still wanna move, LIVESTRONG.COM & Tara Stiles have a ton of videos online tochoose from (most are +/-10 minutes). They’re fab to relieve some stress post-thanksgiving blahs. :)I’m did a few yesterday: trying to perfect my Crow Pose (held it for ONE minute last week, but haven’t been able to repeat). Also did Tara’s tutorial - Hard Poses Made Easy - highly recommend for intermediates. Choose your channel below! Try just one. 10 minutes. Feels good. -xo
