Aurorae Yoga Review

Jaxen- the new Aurorae yoga model ; )

I first reviewed an Aurorae yoga mat a few years ago when I started my blog. I ended up losing the mat in my move across the state and wanted a new one for exercising in my basement. I was sent the ladies grey cropped yoga pants and the northern lights yoga mat to review.

In the last few months, I re-started running which I have not done in about 6 years. I have realized that the key to preventing injuries is to stretch, a lot. I like to stretch right after a run and also the next couple of days. I have been using this yoga mat to do a lot of stretching on.
Also, I found a workout online that is called Yoga for Runners and have been practicing some of the poses. Yoga helps me to de-stress which is very important.

I also was sent the ladies grey cropped yoga pants to review. I chose the size XS but wish that I would have gotten a small because they are quite tight. They fit like a small juniors pants so I would recommend going a size up from normal. These are made of nylon and spandex. These can also be used as running capris which I will definitely be using them for. I love the 4-way stretch mesh panels which allow your skin to breathe.
Stretching my legs out the day after a 5.5 mile run.

Aurorae offers yoga mats in illuminating colors, a focal point icon and extra long in length. Aurorae offers the best reviewed yoga mats, accessories & props online. You can browse their yoga mats, yoga bags, yoga accessories and yoga props here.

  1. You ran 5.5 and don't have a drop of sweat on you.. and in a xsmall. When you were stretching you weren't on your mat :). I think since you already have a successful blog, your tiny as a pea, healthy, cute husband and nice house...something has to give; Im taking your dog!

    1. This comment seriously cracked me up! You can have my house, blog and husband- just don't take my puppies! Also, I should have specified, this picture was not right after the run. It was later that afternoon after I showered. My face would have been bright red if it was right after the run, trust me ; )

  2. Your puppy is adorable! Maybe he should be the next model. I bet they'd take him!

    1. Thank you! He is a Mama's boy. He follows me everywhere- he is on my lap right now lol
