Is your yoga mat getting a little funky? Freshen it up with this easy DIY yoga mat spray.
Do you enjoy doing yoga? If so, what is your favorite type of yoga to practice? I’m a heated vinyasa kind of girl. I love doing yoga in a ridiculously warm room moving through a fast, powerful flow. There’s enough going on to keep me engaged and interested (I have the attention span of a toddler), yet it is still challenging mentally and physically.
After a long hiatus, I recently reintroduced regular vinyasa flows into my weekly routine. While it has worked wonders for my core strength and (lack of) flexibility, it has done a number on my yoga mat. Can I be real with you guys? My mat was pretty ripe. If you enjoy heated yoga too, I’m sure you can relate.
To freshen things up a bit, I mixed up my own yoga mat spray. It’s simple, natural and has a bright citrusy scent. Nothing says “clean” like citrus right? The perfect scent for cleaning up our funky mats 😉
