Specialty Sporting Goods Retailer Offers Tips to Help Consumers Find their Metta
LOS ANGELES (Oct. 8 2013)—Heading into fall, Sport Chalet, a specialty sporting goods retailer,
encourages consumers to stay active during the cooler seasons and transition workouts to indoor
activities like yoga. For experienced yogis or first-timers, the proper mat and apparel can be the key to
maximizing a workout designed to strengthen the mind, body and soul.
“Pairing yourself with the correct gear is important, particularly when the sport requires the use of your
body as the weight,” said Hallie Moyer, buyer at Sport Chalet. “Yoga relies heavily on balance, so what is
under your hands and feet to help support your alignment is critical. At Sport Chalet, we educate our
customers on how to select the right equipment to augment their workout of choice, helping yogis hit
the mat with confidence.”
To help yoga enthusiasts focus on their Zen, Moyer outlines the following equipment necessities and
practice tips:
1. Manduka The Black Yoga Mat PRO: the dense, thick mat provides more cushioning for bones
and a superior non-slip fabric finish for holding poses. It also comes with a lifetime guarantee so
yogis can keep returning to the mat to improve their practice. TIP: Wet any new mat down prior
to use and in between classes to create some stickiness for an improved grip.
2. Manduka Yoga Cork Block: the cork is a renewable, sustainable material that provides a firmness
not found in foam blocks to help support balance and form. TIP: Blocks can be used outside of
yoga class to enhance body weight exercises like crunches, pushups and reps with light-weight
dumb bells.
3. Manduka Cotton Yoga Strap: the strap includes a redesigned buckle, making it stronger and
easier to use. TIP: While popular among beginners, these straps also allow any level yogi to
experience a longer, deeper pose or stretch.
4. Prana Women’s Roxanne Printed Legging: stand out from traditional black yoga pants with these
patterned leggings. Quick drying stretch material makes these a statement-worthy addition to
any wardrobe. TIP: Leave any fears behind and focus inward for a reflective and rewarding
