  1. Start with squats and lunges without any additional weight - just body weight. But make sure you're doing them correctly - check with a trainer. Then you can add weight.
  2. Mary Kay from Illinois! Hi!
  3. I do a program called RIP - Repetition, Intensity, Performance It includes squats, lunges, chest press, back and shoulders and then biceps, triceps and abs. It's 3 days a week and fabulous!
  4. I've just started with essential oils so I love this topic!! I've made a yoga mat cleaner with water, vinegar, tea tree and sweet orange. It smells amazing and makes every day smell like summer!
  5. Vented is important!!
  6. I didn't think of that!! Thanks!
  7. I can't believe how heavy the black mat is!! As much as I love its larger size, it may have to be my 'stay at home' mat. It's so new that it's also still slippery and not nearly as cushy as my wai lana mat.
  8. I found it for $50 on the Manduka site and $42.95 on another site. The less expensive one actually has 2 zippers on top. I can't tell on the Manduka site. They don't give that view. You really like it?
  9. Is it the Go Play Yoga Mat Sling? if I could figure how to put up a picture, I would.
  10. I just bought a Manduka Pro Black Magic. Thoughts on how to carry it ~ Do you have a bag or do you use straps? The Manduka is so much thicker than my previous mat that I'm not sure what will work. Thoughts?
  11. I just bought the Manduka Pro Black Magic. I haven't tried it yet. Is there anything I need to do to 'season' it before I use it?
  12. Thanks! I just ordered the Hugger Mugger one!
  13. Does it need to be lavender oil? Would another essential oil work as well?
  14. Do you own one? What do you use it for? What brand do you own? What brand should I get?
  15. I've bought Marika at TJ Maxx too. LOVE them!!
