Most appealing is the Signature Photo Mat Series, which is a collection of commissioned, art-quality images hand-rendered onto the mats. Unusual and stylish, these mats will inspire you to make every yoga class.
rECOnstructed Yoga Bag ($50)
Be good to the environment with an eco-friendly yoga mat and tote it around in an earth-friendly bag. Each rECOnstructed bag is made entirely of recycled banners, making every bag unique. You can show off your individual style and save the planet at the same time with this colorful, one-of-a-kind yoga accessory.
Trudie Styler's Weight Loss Yoga ($15)
Earlier this year, avid yoga practitioner (and wife of singer Sting) Trudie Styler released her sixth mind, body and fitness DVD, Trudie Styler's Weight Loss Yoga, which features four workouts ranging from 15 to 35 minutes to help you learn to use yoga to lose weight, build strength, improve your posture and train your core muscles -- all in the comfort of your own home. Styler and her personal trainer James D'Silva provide a fresh perspective on yoga specifically for weight loss that encourages viewers to embrace a healthier lifestyle through exercise and a cohesive diet plan. The DVD also has a bonus 12-minute meditation practice.
