Happy National Yoga Month!

Now, Go #TreatYoSelf With This Sweet New Om-Worthy Stuff

It's September, and while you don't get to shop for a new backpack and first day of school outfit anymore, that doesn't mean you can't stock up on other essentials you'll use all year long. This month, we're stepping into our fall fitness regimen by celebrating National Yoga Month and picking up some new yoga gear to sweat it out in. Check out what's on our wish list:

Manduka's Shama Yoga Rug
If you slip around your mat even with a towel, you may need to step it up to a yoga rug. (No shame, we all sweat. You should see our Web Features Editor in any class.) Manduka's new shama rug absorbs sweat fast and provides extra grip, plus the embroidered lines aren't just decorative -- you can use them to check your alignment, too. Use this over your mat or in place of a mat. We also love this in place of a yoga blanket to sit on during meditation or roll up to assist with postures.
