Get Your Zen On With Glow Yoga


Photo Cred: Beyoutiful Hot Yoga shows us how it’s done.

 Glow Yoga.  Glowga.  Glow with the flooow, zen masters.  This chill exercise trend is here to stay, and I’m jazzed such a party product can help motivate.  It’s a fun incentive when getting fit & centered, ya know?  Mood lighting is welcome in my world ANY time, and society says exercise classes are no exception.  The following Glow Yoga photos caught my eye and inspired me to attend my first class comin’ up here real soon (I’m looking at you, One Down Dog!)…

  1. Glow products are dang affordable, so it won’t break the bank for instructors.
  2. Packed classes, instructors – nuff said!
  3. Once again – incentive.  If ya need a push to get to class in the first place (hi, that’s me), glow kinda tricks the brain into thinking you’re partying…when actually you’re treating your mind, body and soul really well, like 100%.  Sign me up.
  4. In addition to glow yoga, glow aerobics classes are popping up everywhere.  Step it up a notch and check out these lights in motion!  Courtesy of

glowyoga3glowyoga2glowyogaCan you dig it?  I sure can.  Subscribe to our blog now and get an update later when we’re back with Part 2:  a full report and pics from our glowing class at One Down Dog.  Seriously, mates, if I can do this, anyone can.  Beginner’s yoga here I come, and I have no doubt it will be fun…

‘Til next time, light loves.

Add Lights & Glow To Your Funny Elf On The Shelf Ideas!

ATTN: fun parents & party people!

In need of new & improved funny Elf On The Shelf ideas this Christmas? We’ve got light up stocking stuffers so perfect for this.  Wait a minute – do you even know what Elf On The Shelf is??  For those out of the loop, check it out:

What started as a children’s book is now a silly/awesome holiday tradition.  We love silly/awesome, it’s kind of our thing…  Rumor has it Santa sends elves out into the world to spy on kids (um, kinda creepy), and that is how he knows who’s naughty or nice. Naturally elves get into mischief, they so crazy, so parents keep up this game of placing their kid’s elf doll in wacky scenarios every morning in December.  Kiddos can’t wait to wake up & find out what their funny Elf On The Shelf was up to overnight!  Grown-ups are no exception, and I for one LOVE THIS THANG.  I plan on keeping it up year ’round strictly to amuse my husband who is also a giant little kid:

Meet Gnome MacDonald. Magical protector of fiber LED centerpieces.

Duck & monkey BFFs. This year they’re delivering light up gifts in place of Santa & his reindeer.  Don’t worry about it, they’re professionals.

Mele Kalikimaka!  It’s the thing to say on a bright Hawaiian Christmas Day.

Obviously, I had to improvise with the characters found around my house.  But I’ve officially added a creepy elf doll to my Christmas list (wuddup, Santa).  You really can use any funny toy or doll for this.  For more funny Elf On The Shelf ideas, meet us over at Pinterest, where the ideas are plentiful and not just for kids anymore…
