As the warmer weather has passed and the colder temperatures are settling in nicely, that puts me into my holiday frame of mind. The down side, is that it can also put me into a more hibernation-like state of mind. Starting work when it is dark, only to turn around at the end of the day and it is dark really puts a damper on my energy level and spirits. Thankfully, I am working at home remotely so I can step outside for a few moments to enjoy some sunshine, while the temperatures are tolerable.
I will admit, I have not taken care of myself as much as I could while staying home and working at home so much more. To help keep my mind centered and my body maintaining some continuous movement with being indoors so much, I have taken up light yoga activities. Let me tell you what great yoga products from Aurorae I have found to help me find that inner core strength and keep me centered.
Aurorae is a family business, popular active lifestyle e-retailer, and yoga mat company founded in 2009 by yoga student and cancer survivor, Dennis Ingui.
Cancer-free for more than 15 years, Ingui started practicing yoga as an outlet in his life to help build his body and develop inner peace of mind. Aurorae’s flagship Classic Yoga Mats became the top-rated yoga mats on Amazon.com after less than a year in operation quickly making Aurorae one of the top yoga mat companies in the country. What started out as a hobby grew into an enjoyable venture for Ingui and his family.

Whether you are starting your yoga journey like me, or someone who has been practicing for years, let me give you a nice run down of items you can find from Aurorae Yoga to equip you with all that you need to stretch and relax.
Aurorae Synergy Yoga Mat
The first thing you will need is a good, classic yoga mat to get started. The Aurorae Synergy On-The-Go Yoga Mat is a 2-in-1 Foldable On-the-Go Yoga Mat for yogis on the move! asy to pack, mobile, lightweight, great for travel made with our integrated Microfiber towel and anti-slip patented Synergy Technology to absorb sweat.

- Tahiti Tide (my personal favorite)
Perfect for yogis on the move that sweat and slip at 72″ long x 24″ wide x 2.5mm thick. This yoga mat can easily be folded flat to fit in your luggage, backpacks and most carry-on cases. It weighs only 1.3 lbs. making it easy to carry and keep your luggage under the expensive overcharge fees on airlines. Great for using over hotel carpets or over your existing mat.Aurorae Mat Wash
You need to care for your mat, that is why I recommend picking up Aurorae Yoga mat wash when you purchase your yoga mat. You can choose from four delightful scents including Citrus, Lavender, Original or Eucalyptus. The wash is 100% organic and made in the USA. I really love the soft, subtle scent of lavender and it really stimulates my senses each time I use my mat.
The mat was is free of phospate and is hypoallergenic. It has natural ingredients to help keep your mat clean, and safe from bacteria causing items like sweat, dirt and other impurities. Aurorae Yoga Backpack
