Bring out your inner Zen with a yoga, Pilates or meditation practice.

Perfect for those of us with busy schedules who need a moment of peace and quiet to help unwind at the start of end of the day, a slow practice can sometimes be the most beneficial.

Starting out well before our movement, staying hydrated first and foremost is key.

To do so in a stylish manner, Larq’s White and Taupe Movement Bottle is the perfect size for gentle activity, and it’s self-cleaning!

When regularly stretching and moving, investing in a good yoga mat means your muscles and joints are supported in the long run.

While there’s many to choose from, from colourful and printed to textured and neutral, we suggest starting out with a foundational mat like Museum of Peace and Quiet’s Logo Yoga Mat.

For added cushioning and support, Walden’s Meditation Cushion and Mat is ideal for relaxing into and finding your inner peace.

Add some complexity to your yoga routine with Alo’s Uplifting Yoga Block, Bala’s Weighted Bangles or Casall’s Yoga Strap.
