Get in Shape Comfortably with Gaiam Canada! #Review and #Giveaway ~ CAN 04/18

| March 14, 2016 | 121 Comments

Getting in shape is something I like doing all year-round. When working out indoors, I turn to yoga or a HITT routine to get the job done. I like having comfortable equipment to help obtain my workout goals as it makes it easier to do what I have to do without worrying about hurting myself or slipping on my floors. I was really happy when Gaiam Canada asked me to review some of their yoga equipment because I have heard about their products and was curious as to whether they would stand up to what I do to get in shape. Here are the three yoga items I was given to review from Gaiam Canada:

• 5mm Elephant Printed Reversible Yoga Mat
• Floral Printed Yoga Mat Bag
• Super Grippy Yoga Socks

I really enjoyed using the 5mm Elephant Printed Reversible Yoga Mat. It was great to move around on its textured, “sticky” non-slip surface, and it was fun to use both sides when I wanted to have a bit of a change from the calming elephant side to the lively paisley one. It was also very cushy since it is thicker than the mat I currently own. I also learned that these mats are made of PVC that does not contain the six most harmful phthalates. This makes this mat more environmentally friendly to use as well. An added touch is that when this mat is purchased, there is a downloadable yoga practice video included for more of a workout.Yoga Mat


I was really happy to get to get to review the Flower Burst Yoga Mat Bag. It is made of 100% cotton bag that can fit most mat sizes. I loved the design on the bag as it is really cute, yet not overpowering. I also like the large front pocket that allows me to pack and carry numerous items. There is also an MP3 player pocket with an earphone slit to allow you listen to music hands-free. The adjustable strap allows for a comfortable fit when you wear it.

It was great to wear the Super Grippy Yoga Socks to do yoga and my workouts! They can be used on and off the mat because of the patterned silicone grips that prevent slipping on every toe for targeted traction. These socks went on easily and were really comfy to wear. They made working out more stylish and fun to do! They are among my favourite socks to wear whether I am working out or running around the house.

These yoga items from Gaiam Canada are the perfect combination for yoga lovers at any level to use and to enjoy on a daily basis. The mat is thick and comfortable, the bag holds my mat and other items with ease, and the socks make doing yoga and workouts easier to do. I know I will be using all three of these items whenever I get in shape.
