ballball yoga

Happy almost Friday friends! You all know how much I love to get a good workout in, but with my work schedule I find it much harder to get to the gym and especially classes. One of the things I miss most about my new hectic schedule is finding time for yoga. Not only does yoga allow me to center myself, relax and get a good workout in, it also means I get to wear cute workout clothes! This week I was fortunate enough to join a group of wonderful ladies from the Central Florida Lady Bloggers to attend a private class at ballball Yoga Gear and Activewear.

ballball is not your average yoga shop, it's a yogis heaven. It's the only place that you can find over 40 different yoga and activewear/athleisure/lifestyle brands all in one store! From clothing to mats, jewelry, books, accessories, towels and even S'well bottles; ballball has it all!

After getting a private tour of the store which includes artwork from local artists (more on that later!), and a giant dressing room decked out to resemble a yoga studio we checked out one of the coolest features of the store; a yoga mat testing center. Yup, you read that correctly. A yoga mat testing center. To be honest, I had never really paid much attention to the difference between yoga mats but after seeing this I have to tell you, there's a difference.

We all got the chance to select our own mats and practice on them in a 45 minute yoga session led by a local yoga instructor from a near by yoga studio. The yoga session was just what I needed to unwind from a long day and get my chakras balanced.

As if what I've told you about ballball wasn't unique and great enough, the local artwork I told you about earlier? Some of those artists have partnered with ballball's private yoga attire brand, Yogavated to create one of a kind yoga pants. When they say one of a kind, they really mean it so if you love a design you better jump on it fast because once they're sold out of a design they reach out to another local artist to design a new pair and the old designs are gone forever.
