Sustainable Yoga Gear For Light Workouts This Holiday Season
Light workouts like yoga are perfect for the holiday season; you can drop in for a class or follow a Youtube video from the comfort of your own home. Yoga relaxes, de-stresses, and detoxifies the body after countless fun-filled holiday weekends, and of course, you’ll need some sustainable threads to practice your new hobby! Athletic wear, unlike many other kinds of clothing, is difficult to buy second hand, in good condition and for cheap. Here are some eco-friendly brands to keep you moving this holiday season.
