This time I had the AWESOME opportunity to wear Electric Yoga.

My initial thought was about how amazing the outfits looked. The two outfits sent could be mixed and each are perfect staples for a yoga wardrobe.

After I put each item on, I quickly fell in love with their bras. I adore them so much I could wear them all day and everyday.

The white leggings are their “loose leggings” and they’re form fitting but not that crushing compression style.

The black leggings have a zigzag stitching across the front half which I love!

Electric Yoga clothing is super comfortable and perfectly functional. I love that I can freely move in their clothing without anything coming out.

Review: I’ve been practicing yoga to manage my health for about a year now. I battle several autoimmune diseases and an endless number of symptoms. I’ve enjoyed Strala and Restorative yoga with great positive health effects.

Essential Kundalini Yoga has opened my life to an awakening yoga. Filled with a calm energy, a euphoric enlightenment, this book is completely different from anything I’ve learned about yoga.

It’s not all about learning what Kundalini, there are actual practices within this book. I love the pose descriptions, they are written spectacularly. The explanations are concise and fool-proof. They also have photos to demonstrate a position. Every time I read pose instructions I hear a soft calm voice teaching me yoga, this is how I imagine the authors teach in person and it reads perfectly.

The amount of positivity in this book is outstanding! A book like this could create world peace.#VirginiaandKhalsaforPresidents 😉

I recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn about yoga, anyone already doing yoga and everything in between. A full  🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 for this one.

Essential Kundalini Yoga: An Invitation to Radiant Health, Unconditional Love, and the Awakening of Your Energetic Potential Paperback – February 1, 2017, by Karena Virginia and Dharm Khalsa. Paperback: 352 pages. Publisher: Sounds True. I received this copy for free and offered my own personal review.

I didn’t have a first aid kit..

I recently had my first yoga injury. Yoga is such a calm slow practice for me that besides the occasional overstretched hammie or knotted shoulders I’ve never actually injured myself.

One of my sponsors asked the ambassadors to send in short clips of yogis having fun on their mats, so I set out to do just this. Easy enough.

My son has recently learned cartwheels. You know how toddlers put their hands on the ground and hop and then yell “I DID IT!”.. well I planned to do a cartwheel behind him. I was way to close to the wall and my living room walls have decorative moulding all around the bottom half.

Somehow I hit this moulding so perfectly because even though its rounded, it split my achilles are open with a deep gash and left a bruise from my bottom calf to the top of my foot.

But I didn’t even have bandage. Forget guaze, tape, a proper ice pack or anything else that could have been useful.

Luckily my son wasn’t bothered throughout this but if he had gotten hurt how could I have really cared for it?

I decided to get a kit. One I can bring on trips and just keep for general emergencies. And I got lucky because the one I found has over 100 items in it. It has everything from needle and thread to a compass, guaze and sterile pads, ice packs and so much more.

Moral of the story, really be prepared for emergencies. Even if you’re careful, something can always happen.
