Forty and Fabulous: Get your Yoga On with our Gaiam Fall 2013 giveaway

Congrats to our winner Sadie!

As part of my foray into my forties I am committing to pushing myself outside my comfort zone and unearthing passions I’ve allowed to lay dormant. One of those passions is YOGA. I had a brief encounter with it in high school- albeit in  a noisy gymnasium where downward facing dog was a position that created more giggling than pause for healthy reflection and stretching. And so as I turn the big 4-0  I am determined to FINALLY get my yoga on– all I need now are the right accessories- which is where Gaiam enters the equation.

Gaiam’s Fall 2013 collection continues to offer high-quality yoga “essentials” – mats, bags, headbands, slings, towels, water bottles, blocks – but now with updated more functional styles that will now be offered in new designs and vibrant colors. In addition, Gaiam  also offers a variety of accessories that aren’t only meant for the gym, but are perfect for everyday use – from day to night – such as a new version of the popular Metro Gym bag and headband, as well as a brand new yoga clutch!

    Getting enough exercise is essential to feeling good and staying in shape. It tones the body and makes me look great.

    Not sure what happened to my first post. I think it said “awaiting confirmation” – but it’s not here and the ones I posted after are.
    So one product that makes me feel better is my Neutrogena Daily moisturizer b/c I don’t worry about peeling skin and it has SPF 15

    My product is the bath tub filled with steaming hot water, but since I am pregnant I have had to take warm baths. As soon as I give birth and get the okay, I will relax in a hot bath and hopefully have someone there to pick up Little Miss when she cries.
