One workout routine that I have totally gotten into over the past year is yoga. I have a subscription to Netflix that I use to instantly sneak in a workout on those days when time is not on my side because I chose to sleep in “just a little longer.” I have added various workout videos to my queue so that I have a variety of options to appeal to my sleepy senses. I also have a few DVDs that I work out to religiously on those days when I just don’t want to go to the gym–namely “Body by Bethenny,” an instant energizer.
One thing that is great about yoga is the balancing effect that you get at the end of a session. The calming breath patterns and stretches align your spine and relax your muscles, leaving you feeling loose and energized. What better way to add even more balance to your life than to bring natural elements into your workout gear.
Organic fabrics are quickly becoming the preferred material for fitness lovers. Organic cotton, hemp and bamboo are among the most popular natural fibers used in apparel. Sidenote: Bamboo will naturally wick moisture, has antibacterial features and feels amazing to the touch.
The cost for these products can be high, on average you will see tops and bottoms ranging from $30-$70. For all you fitness fashionistas, the price directly compares to your other name brand gear, and you still look great. That is a direct win for your pocket and the Earth!
We all know that being a member of Sigma Kappa automatically qualifies us as experienced philanthropists. Our philanthropies continually enrich the lives of people all over the world; a world we work to protect through Inherit the Earth.
My advice: Read this blog post and purchase a cute organic top and/or bottom (thank you Super Sigma for reducing the emissions used to produce such a stylish outfit and thus saving the world…again). Then, make a choice to Inherit the Earth by either completing one hour of yard work or yoga to burn an average of 300 calories naturally (check your calories by clicking this link WebMD).
Don’t forget to post your favorite natural workout by commenting on this post!
Live on Purpose, and Live Sigma Kappa.
