I know everyone has a preference, but I personally believe that yoga is the single most amazing, body changing, stress reducing, and weight loss practice you can do. It literally will change your outlook on life, plus give you killer legs and a bum you can bounce a penny off of. I like that yoga is simple. You can do wonders with your body and a mat. That doesn’t mean you can play with a few toys.
If you’re ready to start the journey, here’s a few things I’m digging that I want to share…
Shashi Gripe Socks, $17

I’ve been using Neocell Beauty Infusion since March and I have to say collagen supplements have done wonders for my skin, hair and flexibility. Here’s how I use it…
