Improve Your Flexibility & Form - Clever Yoga Strap #Giveaway

Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

I have always wanted to try a yoga strap. And this one by Clever Yoga, looks like an excellent one to try. 

As you know, I'm trying to incorporate yoga into my workout routine. However, Physical Therapy wouldn't allow anything but their PT exercises, so I haven't been able to do any yoga lately, and I have to say
that I have missed it. 

But, I think my Physical Therapy (at least for now) is coming to an end. In fact, I cancelled last week's appointment, and I cancelled this upcoming week. Mainly because trying to correct the misalignment has cause other issues such as pinched nerves and lower back pain that I was not experiencing in the past. I'm not saying that I am 'finished' with physical therapy, I'm just taking a couple of weeks off to let my body regroup from all of the manual manipulations. And I'm doing a little trial and error on my own to see what aggravates things, and what I can tolerate. 

So far I've been able to complete a 3 mile run on the treadmill, and a 2 mile run outside with minimal pain. I'm pleased with that. It was a beautiful run in the snow yesterday. 

And today, I did a little stretching using the Clever Yoga strap

And I have to say that it felt great. I have definitely lost a lot of my flexibility, and I think the Clever Yoga Strap is going to be great to help me with improving my flexibility and my balance.  And don't think the strap is short by any means. I have it doubled in the first photo of me stretching. :) 

I love how I can loop it over my foot (or feet), and I don't have to worry about it slipping off. And with the Clever Yoga Strap, I'm able to hold poses longer with the strap than without. 

Overall, I love it. I think it's well made, seems very durable, and I can see me using it for years. I am so glad to have it among my workout gear.

  1. I've never used one, but I've tried using resistance bands for the same purpose? :P

    1. Me too - which is why i like the strap because it stays on and there isn't as much 'give'

  2. Congrats on your creative find - I have something similar that I forgot about - you've inspired me to get it back in use :)

  3. I use one at the gym all the time. Love it.

  4. I have used resistance bands in at-home work outs but those were just resistance band based routines and not yoga straps, per say. I'm curious to see how I could incorporate this into my own at home yoga routine as I've never used a yoga strap before.

  5. Yes, I have. My chiropractor (aka my brother) gave me one to help stretch out my shoulder. I don't use it as much as the doctor ordered though...:-P

Self Care Is Not Selfish It's Necessary

It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. And I'll say it just one more time in case you didn't hear me. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. I have found through experience that when I'm not taking care of myself, not only do I suffer but my family suffers. So ditch the mom guilt and take the time that you need! I have a tendency to keep pushing my needs aside until I reach a breaking point. We've had a very busy fun summer so far. However, I've struggled to get some quality ' me ' time to decompress. I'll spare you the meltdown that ensued. But the reality check that followed prompted me to take action.

Running My Life

Wow, has it really been 2 years since my last post? I suppose that I allowed life to get in the way. For any faithful blog readers, I apologize. Although, I'm not sure how many people actually read blogs anymore. I think most people use other social media platforms.  (By the way, drop by and say hi on Insta. )  But for some reason, each year when I pay for my google domain, I can't seem to let it go. As silly as it sounds, this little space is mine. And lately I've been struggling with ownership and acceptance. And my domain renewal was a not so gentle reminder that I have a voice .  Seriously, you'd think by 48 that I'd have this figured out - nope - apparently not. However, I am wise enough to know that we have a choice to allow situations to harms us or make us stronger. I'm choosing to let this mid-life quandary make me stronger. And because of this, I'm setting goals, taking charge, and reexamining priorities.  Movin' on... 

When The Planner In You Must Be Flexible

In case you haven’t figured this out by now, I’m a planner. I know - shocker right?!? :) So although I love substitute teaching, it’s making the planner in me anxious. And it’s been reeking havoc on my workouts. Basically the morning of or maybe the night before, I find out if I’m working. So my day ( that I thought I had planned ) can be turned upside down in an instant. But, truthfully, isn’t that really the same with everyone?
