There’s no denying that yoga is an activity that comes with a lot extra ‘needs.’ Fall in love with yoga and suddenly you need a yoga mat, a yoga towel, clothes you can sweat and stretch in, tumblers with motivational messages, etc. etc. etc. 🙂
Fitness in general is the same way. The more we exercise, the more we realize there are things out there that can enhance our experiences. According to a 2012 study published in Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, people enter a certain mindset when they wear certain clothing. Wear workout clothes + have things to work out with = feel like working out. So, it’s okay to indulge once in a while, especially if it really is a need.
The good news is, you can buy local 🙂 It’s cheaper and it’s something we can be proud of.
Here are a few Filipino brands we can all try and support while we do our yoga.
