Fitness Find: Functional and Fashionable Bag For Yogis
October 30, 2007
What: Yoli-poli Yoga Bag
Why: I love everything about my newly adopted yoga lifestyle. Well, almost everything. I’ve embraced the deep cleansing breaths, the headstands, even the organic smoothies they serve at my yoga studio, but I can’t stomach the generic, raw cotton, overwhelmingly khaki accessories that seem to be favored by the wheat grass slurping set. It’s challenge enough getting my sleepy self to a 7am class, and I need all the help I can get.
For me, that translates into a shiny pink bag for my mat that I can even bring out to a post-class breakfast without feeling utterly unfashionable. The bags, the highest-quality on the market, are as utilitarian as they are stylish. Made of super-durable genuine leather and cotton canvas lining, they feature grommet embellishments that also function as a ventilation system to allow the yoga mat and accessories inside a chance to breathe. Yep, they need those cleansing breaths, too, otherwise they'll smell awful, need replacement sooner, and frighten the cute guy next to you in class.
Great–you can embrace the divine yoga sensibilities without sacrificing your highly evolved fashion sense. Meditate on that!
