Last month, I looked around my Pilates class and suddenly realized I was the only attendee in baggy sweats and an old T-shirt. The other students were wearing stylish and form-fitting workout gear, and thus could actually see their correct forms. Enter Just Live Leggings, with their colorful brand of flattering lifestyle wear.
Just Live Leggings are made from the line’s signature moisture-wicking fabric Yolon (yes, the name is inspired by the ‘You Only Live Once’ mantra) a blend of cationic polyester and spandex. The material is lightweight and silky but stays taut on your body throughout the day due to the tightness of the Yolon knit. The fun ‘Sunset Lace’ leggings I tried never bagged at the knees or grew saggy despite many hours of wear, and felt incredibly comfortable to boot. The leggings’ high, thick waistband that sucks your stomach in was a high-quality touch.

Want a reason to wear cute exercise gear, but no time in your crazy schedule for a group class at the gym? YogaDownload is the perfect solution. Ideal for the time-pressed traveler, stay-at-home parent, or anyone on a budget, their easy-to-navigate site offers hundreds of audio podcasts and streaming videos. YogaDownload offers online classes in over twenty yoga styles, searchable by your objective (for example, weight loss or detox), body part, pose type, focus, class length, level, and instructor – just to name a few; http://www.yogadownload.com.
Each video on YogaDownload handily includes a short preview, a detailed description of the content, and honest customer reviews to check out before you stream the class – this makes the browsing experience very efficient. The site also has printable pose guides, and a huge selection of diverse music. I particularly liked the shorter videos, which would zoom in on a more difficult pose, like the Bakasana (the Crow Pose). The instructors clearly and confidently break it down, allowing you to master poses successfully at your own pace, with total privacy and no self-consciousness. It’s a fantastic resource at an unbeatable price – one month of unlimited YogaDownload classes costs only $10.
