yogadeals giveaway - 9 month infinity wrap

personally, i'm a huge fan of convertible clothing - it helps me rationalize price per wear on pricier pieces if i can wear them in multiple ways. plus, as a carry-on-only type of traveler it maximizes my wardrobe when jetsetting.  so when my clothes can do the day/night barbie thing and are practical to wear on my yoga mat, it's an instant win. thank you abbey from infinity sport for creating just that - a win.

abbey's line was born out of necessity when she was pregnant in early 2012: 

"I was entering that time in pregnancy where my normal clothes were too tight, yet my pregnancy clothes were too big. [then i continued to wear] the wrap after giving birth (3 months ago, today) to Yoga, Pilates, on a run and even running errands."

soon after launching, her wraps became in high demand by non-pregnant ladies too!  as a result, abbey just created the infinity sport wrap for these yoga, pilates and dance-loving ladies.

so whether you're preggers, love convertible clothes or maybe plan on overeating sometime soon, here's how you can enter to win your very own 9 month infinity wrap ($79.99 value)!

  1. like 9 month infinity & infinity sport on facebook and/or follow @9monthinfinity on twitter
  2. comment on the 9 month infinity fb page and/or tweet the following:  "i want to win the @yogadeals @9monthinfinity giveaway!"

the winner will be announced on black friday (11/23/2012) - so make sure you enter!!!  the winner will have the choice of the 9 month infinity wrap in poppy or grey. 

good luck!!!



yoga deals - fall find: 30% off v-keen

among my favorite new york designers, both in spirit and an in talent, victoria keen, is offering a great deal on her limited edition cropped pants that are designed and constructed in nyc. yep, they are as cool and grounded as new yorkers (hey, i am biased and proud).




do yoga, get #blissedin

often times you hear the phrase, 'feeling blissed out,' after yoga class, when really yoga helps to bring your focus inward - so you're more blissed in than out.  yoga starts as an internal practice which then radiates out into your life off the mat.

i was reminded of this feeling after a weekend of lots of yoga, including teaching and attending three 2 hour sessions led by vinnie marino, a new yorker at heart, even though he currently calls santa monica home.  luckily, he was in nyc for a weeked of 'vin'yasa hosted at yogaworks in soho. 

my pal bex has two great reminders to stay blissed in - tanks (like the one i'm wearing in this pic) and limited edition bracelet that are uniquely numbered and you can pre-order in packs of 4 so that you can help spread the bliss.

for more on bex (she's an amazing mom of 4, a fitness realistic, and overall awesome person), blissed in tanks and bracelets, visit!


tanks and bracelets are $20 each.
