Why should I stick to only 20 great Yoga Mats. If I am going, I am going all out. With my Yoga routine I am also asked to increase my water and fluid intake and keep myself sugary and hydrated ! Ofcourse – the summer of Mumbai is killing us all equally – But for some, like me, the delicate lot, the one with the golden spoon, we can barely take the heat. Forget our dose of Vitamin C I say and stay indoors and keep COOL.
A Twisted Fact in my mind : Yoga is a slower way of life !
Fact : Yoga is a the way of life.. !
I have had a bit of a trouble streak when it comes to my personal fitness for a couple of weeks now. Every since I have gotten married – life with Kunal Shah is no lesser than living on a roller coaster. It’s like a never ending one. We have a string of weddings, birthday parties, dinners etc all planned out weeks in advance which gives very little time for the boady to recuperate. Also it may sound like an excuse – but I am exhausted just going everywhere to actually find time for my personal fitness. Until I went to see the doc yest – yes yes everything is in top form – except I was asked to have some Y time – YOGA time to de-stress.
Everybody who is my somebody knows I am one to live in the moment and I love the fast way of life. Yoga is the last thing on my mind - but Alas – I have been asked to stick to it. But ofcourse, if I am put in a situation I am never going to have a glad acceptance .. I will see the artsy , glam-ming it up form of Yoga and thought hmm… need some nice fancy Yoga Mat.
I have to admit to feeling a little nervous about giving yoga mat advice, as I think choosing a yoga mat can be a bit personal. The best way to find a mat is to try out a few. I used to practice with a super cheap mat until I started slipping all over the place the last time I tried a Yoga stint. I came across a Jadeyoga mat because I think it has a good grip and is eco-friendly. Some of these mats were picked for the grip and some for the fantastic patterns; if a patterned mat motivates you to pull it out more frequently, then there’s nothing wrong with that!
