January 2019 came and went in the blink of an eye. But lucky for us, our fans’ Instagram photos are here to stay! We loved seeing how yogis from far and wide kicked off the new year on their Apeiron non-slip, eco-friendly yoga mats. Check out some of our favorite Instagram posts from January below.
Yoga - to me - is being present. It’s putting headphones in, but not playing the music, just hearing my body, and the music within. Previously being a dancer, I love seeing where my soul leads my body and which motions react or soothe specific emotions. Yoga to me isn’t a workout regimen, it is a way to align my mind, body, and soul.
Finding a good enough reason to hit the gym can be a tough undertaking this time of year. It’s cold, it’s icy and it feels like there aren’t enough hours in the day to work, socialize, eat and exercise. The only things on your to-do list during these chilly winter months are warming up, eating in and falling asleep to the sweet sounds of Netflix. But no matter how tempting a life of leisure might seem in these dreary days, it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle, keep your immune system strong against wintry illnesses and maintain the fitness gains you’ve worked so hard to achieve.
Out with the old and in with the New Year... and new yoga mat! The best way to improve your yoga practice in 2019 is to start fresh - fresh goals, fresh outlook and fresh equipment. Sure, the flimsy and frayed yoga mat that helped you through last year’s resolutions has become something of a security blanket, but it’s time to let go and move on. After all, a worn yoga mat can actually be a detriment to your safety and progress. Having trouble deciding whether or not your yoga mat has still got some life left in it? Here are a few telltale signs that your mat is ready for a trip to the trash can.
More and more bros are trading in their rusty barbells and gym memberships for yoga blocks and studio passes. Yoga Journal reported that the number of male yogis, or “brogis” had risen from 17% to 28% between 2012 and 2016. So as the new year rolls in, the number of brogis rolling out their mats is likely to increase. Luckily, Apeiron’s durable, expertly designed, unisex yoga mats are the ideal accessory for men looking to join the scene.
