I find something very refreshing about the New Year’s issues in magazine. They’re often full of new ideas, delicious recipes and a fresh approach. This edition of Om Yoga magazine was no exception, featuring motivational articles and new intentions for 2015.
Bethany Plantanella wrote a particularly inspiring piece, Love Your Body, about daily yoga practice. Plantanella talks through her morning routine, starting with hot lemon water before moving onto sun salutations and full yoga practice. It brought forwards an idea of a calm, appreciative morning that struck a cord with me. She has made her practice part of her daily routine, which is really inspiring.
I also loved seeing Balini Sports being featured. Balini sports is a premium yoga brand that uses lightweight, eco friendly fabrics. Some eco friendly brands have a fairly limited stock, whereas Balini has an impressive range of beautiful yoga wear. The brand originally started when the founder, Ada Hung, wanted to create high quality yoga clothing, including sports bras for the bigger busted yogini. Balini works with the same teams as Lululemon and Adidas, putting it in very good company.
The attention to detail in the clothes, especially the leggings is beautiful and would definitely inspire me to get on my mat. I’m going to be restarting gymnastic next semester after many years since training properly and these pieces look perfect for the movements required as I learn how to tumble again! The diva leggings ($89.99, see above) would also work for dance and barre classes with their stay-put stirrups, while the vests and sports bras are made for layering. I’m sold.
