If toting around a yoga mat, complete with its own dedicated yoga mat bag, is a hassle, a lightweight new option might make your commuter life a bit easier.

YogaSports new YogoMat folds into roughly the size of a folded newspaper — making it easy to slip into your purse or backpack — but its a full-size mat when unfolded.

The company just launched a Kickstarter campaign, where a $US40 pledge will get one in your hands by June 2013 add $10 for shipping outside the US. The mat is expected to retail at $65.

The mats come in two colors, gray and red, and are made from sustainably harvested natural rubber and claim to be 100 percent recyclable.

Yogis who meditate after their practice can also check out the YoFoMat, which folds up into a thick, comfortable seat for seeking enlightenment.

Nike Introduces Yoga Shoes For Your Inadequate Lady Feet

Nike Studio Wrap

Nike Studio Wrap

Not happy losing to Lululemon in the yoga pants wars in the ever growing market, Nike is slapping its swoosh on other parts of your anatomy: your feet. Because what we need is to buy more unnecessary yog-accoutrement! Especially on your tootsies, those poor things, they’re all bare and stuff. We can’t have that, because bare feet have limits, you see.

These new Nike Studio Wrap shoe thingies have 3 parts (wrap, ribbon and flat) and promise to solve the “hygiene problem” and those pesky slippery-feet-ruin-your-zen moments. And kiss the embarrassment of a bad pedicure goodbye. No one cares about your toes with these fancy shoes.

And who needs bare feet when you have shoes that feel like bare feet, and are better?

There’s no sweaty or slippery feet, no bunched up socks, and even with a bad pedicure, people won’t be looking at your toes with this sexy silhouette.

A better-than-barefoot experience in a modular footwear system, the Nike Studio Wrap was designed to give women an elevated workout in the studio that takes them back to their daily lives in style.

Sorry, fellas, this shoe is only for the ladies, because only ladies do yoga and need special shoes for them, duh. That’s why they come in pink, too. And sisters, we warn you now, once you wrap ‘em you can’t scrap ‘em.

“It’s going to become a necessity; it’s going to be as essential as the yoga mat is to the girl when she goes into her yoga class. She won’t be able to live without it. She won’t want to,” says Footwear Product Director (Women’s Training), Ann Marie Fallow.

Hear that ToeSox? Thems fightin’ words. Your move yoga apparel makers, who’s next for the yoga hat? Chakra beanie?

It might be our weakness for ballet-like things, but they do have the prettiness factor going for them (until your yoga teacher tells you to take them off). That and the marketing video didn’t even involve underwear, upshots or nakedness. And for $110 of your hard-earned cash these shoes can make you forget what the surface under your feet feels like, coming Spring 2013.

Hot yoga in pants or shorts?

Tree Pose

Tree Pose by Nicole Megarry

It’s summer, it is hot and therefore more during the hot yoga practice. It has often been used to adopt a minimalist attitude by wearing shorts to feel lighter but here are several reasons to stay in capris:

1 – Absorbs sweat: if puddles of sweat form on the carpet, then it can become slippery, and you may go deeper into your poses while your muscles are not ready or even fall.

2 – Give the grip: there are poses such as the tree where a body part is supported on the leg. The fabric of your pants will provide adhesion to achieve greater success.

3 – Guard covered: the baggy shorts are fine but they can offer a view of your “assets” at any time when you raise your leg. If you opt for small tight shorts, they can move and show more flesh than you would like.

Everyone has their preferences for hot yoga clothing, but the wearing of pants will not give you warmer than wearing shorts while preventing injuries. So pants are a safer choice!

Tenue de yoga électronique

The Move par Electricfoxy

A new outfit designed by Electricfoxy emits a little sound as soon as we do our positions badly, thus avoiding despite our good will, unfortunate injuries. It is equipped with four elastic bands and sensors that can determined in what position the body is being placed. If something is wrong and “dangerous”, the device lets us know and locate the exact problem area. After exercise, if we plug our devices (smart phones and tablets) it provides more details including schematics representing us.

But be careful with this toy that could put you in awkward positions. Do not push beyond your limits! Nothing replaces a good yoga teacher.

Hot Yoga, ok but what should I bring and how should I dress?

Yoga towel

You can find the accessories required for the practice for rent at Yoga studio. It is available at lower cost (about $ 2): towels, mattresses, water bottles. Personally I prefer to get my stuff and if you forget one of them, the renting is perfect.

It is advisable not to wear jewelry or perfume and it’s better to be dressed with a light and comfortable tank top, a shirt, pants or shorts. The shoes will be left at the entrance of the studio.

After practice, you will find everything in the locker room to freshen up, a shower, some body cream, a hairbrush …. so no excuses, just take your matt!
