I have some seriously exciting news to share and because I like to celebrate, I’ve also got a sick giveaway compliments of Aurorae Yoga for you all to enter too!
Remember a couple of weeks ago when I filled you all in on my latest journey to become a decent and healthy human being by starting to yoga every now and then? I even talked to you all about how nutso my relationship with my yoga mat is because honestly, down-dogging at 8 in the morning on a Saturday isn’t for the faint of heart. Well, if you missed it here’s the original post. As it turns out, a lot of you got what I meant when I said that yoga is fucking hard. Like, really hard. Have you ever tried holding a plank for like, 5 minutes while your teacher waxes poetic about how you’re going to be a better person because you’re sweating it out butt-early in the morning on a yoga mat? I have, and trust me it’s anything but fun. I never knew that I could sweat so much while barely moving but yup, it’s totally possible.
So I shared that post with the owner of the studio that I go to in ever-trendy Montclair, New Jersey and entered it into a competition for a yoga scholarship hosted by Yogi’s Heart. For those of you who don’t know (because I definitely didn’t) Yogi’s Heart is an awesome volunteer group that gives scholarships to young adults ages fifteen to twenty-five in order to help them find their inner yogi over the course of a year. You can read more about these women and the incredible work they’ve done here.
Guys. I won.
I won! They liked hearing about my experience at Yoga Montclair so much that they have offered me a year of yoga to help me get my sh*t together and get in touch with what yoga can offer me if I’m willing to let it. I have to say, I was totally blown away when I got the email from Omni (the owner of Yoga Montclair) because I never win anything. I’d be lying if I told you I didn’t start screaming when I read that email, my victory dance is probably on YouTube somewhere. Whatever.
In honor of my great news, I’ve decided to celebrate the best way that I know how…by sharing the joy with all of you guys! Without your constant support and feedback I never would have thought to enter the Yogi’s Heart scholarship contest, and I want you guys to know how much what you say means to me. Let’s do a giveaway!
Back when I was just starting my journey with yoga, I had purchased a new yoga mat carrier from Aurorae.
Known for their incredibly high-quality products, Aurorae is a family run business by yogi and cancer survivor Dennis Ingui. When I received my bag, I was totally blown away by how awesome it was. It was super high quality, fit a TON of stuff, and was the only yoga mat carrier that actually held my mat snugly without it flopping all over the place if the strap slipped. So of course, I had to reach out to their incredible customer service team and let them know how much I loved my bag. Lo and behold, the next thing I know they’re offering to give YOU GUYS one of their bags for keeps! Isn’t that awesome?
