September is National Yoga Month, a time to help educate people about the health benefits of yoga and to inspire a healthy lifestyle. Yoga can improve flexibility, strength, balance, posture and lung capacity. It can also reduce stress, lower blood pressure, increase energy levels and boost in immune system function. I have been practicing on and off since 2000, but over the past year I have made yoga a priority in my daily life and have experienced the benefits. So, this month my blog will be focused around all things yoga starting with a product review …
Words can be inspiring. A Lot To Say is a new lifestyle brand that celebrates and encourages voices to be heard in the written word.
A Lot To Say Manifesto
If you think something, say it.
If you believe something, say it.
If you want something, say it.
Because saying it creates new awareness.
Awareness sparks new behavior.
And new behavior inspires us all to be better.
If we speak out, others will act out.
To vote. Recycle. Save.
To think a little more.
To try a little harder.
To live more honestly.
You have a lot to say.
So never be afraid to say it.
Or wear it.
The material is soft, but not slippery preventing my hands from slipping during adho mukha svanasana (downward dog). It is super absorbent, so that is soaks up my “glistening aura” (what my yogini BFF Miss calls my sweat). Made from 100% post consumer recycled plastic bottles, it is totally sustainable and 100% toxin-free. A Lot To Say uses an exclusive “No Water Dye Technology” and all products are made in the United States. For some extra karma, the company gives a percentage of their profits towards non-profits such as The International Green Energy Council, Global Green, Stand Up To Cancer, Animal Rescue Foundation and Heal the Bay.
A Lot To Say carries an entire yoga line of tops, pants, towels and bags with inspirational words of breath, om, meditate, stretch, savasana, purify, sweat and camel.
