As you can tell via my Instagram and my previous blog post I ❤️ ritual hot yoga. The whole experience from beginning to end is peaceful, relaxing, but also a great workout! If I had it my way I’d go to class almost every day but it is not always possible so I’m collecting some items so my at home practice can feel a little like ritual.
These mats are the thickest and sturdiest I have tried! They also come with a lifetime warranty!
When you walk into class you grab one of these thick grippy towels to throw on your mat because you sweat so much during class it’s like you go swimming!
Ritual offers their own really cool invention to keep your grippy towel in place while you practice. MatSnaps are are a set of four small snaps, designed to keep your towel in place on your yoga mat throughout your session. At ritual each mat comes with snap so you lay your towel exactly how you want it then slide and clip the snaps into places. It’s so useful and pretty cool to use. Best part is that it was invented by ritual owners Lindsey Greene and Brittney Blum.
After your session at ritual if you look carefully there might be a box of tea where you check in. I try to always make a habit of grabbing a tea bag on my way out and the next morning enjoying it at the office. I love that there are quotes on each one. The best one I got was “Let things come to you.”
One of my favorite things about Ritual is the little extras they offer like tea and also love that you can find chapstick in the bathroom waiting areas!
So I lied, and my favorite part of class is the Shavasana where the your yoga teacher gently places a cool eucalyptus infused towel on you forehead. There is nothing like this after you have sweated it all out on the mat! I have found that Aveda had a line of singular note oils and one of the scents is eucalyptus! Add that to a hand towel and home and inhale!
