Guess What! Summer is coming! The days are getting longer, it's getting warmer outside, and flowers are blooming everywhere. There's no better time to beat the winter fluff, and whip that butt into summer shape. (Psst - Yoga can help.)
When you regularly practice yoga, your body benefits by becoming stronger, flexible, toned, and cleansed. Your mind benefits from the stress reduction, healthy, happy, endorphins, and an overall sense of well being.
We all know we must eat a healthy, balanced diet, in conjunction with any exercise plan, that gets the heart pumping so that we can effectively lose weight. Studies have shown individuals who practice yoga regularly are more inclined to have a healthy diet and lifestyle.

If you would like to see results fast, we recommend adding cardiovascular activities such as walking, jogging, swimming, surfing, cartwheels in an open field, etc, in addition to practicing yoga, at least three times a week.
Vinyasa, or "flow" yoga, is awesome to get the heart pumping. This style has a series of sun salutations with different modifications throughout the class. The more the heart pumps, the hotter the body gets, the more you sweat. YogaPaws are the perfect solution to keep you locked in place as your body heats up.
Power Yoga has become extremely popular by leaving its practitioners panting, drenched in sweat, and begging for more. This style offers a rigorous cardiovascular workout best suited with YogaPaws. You can push through your limits and move deeper into each pose without the worry of slipping.
Hot Yoga is yoga done in a hot room, usually maintained at a temperature of 95-100 degrees. Once the class is complete, practitioners look like they just jumped out of a pool with their yoga gear on. The high heat, profuse sweating, and increased body heat, allow the body to be more flexible and purge toxins from the buckets of sweat you are sure to release. When we sweat, all the lotions, soaps, oils, dirt, etc come up and out of the pores from within your hands and feet. This can make the yoga mat or towel a slippery place. YogaPaws keep you solid and avoid the worry of slipping altogether.
