Good morning! We are so enjoying our yoga retreat in the Dominican Republic. The group from our studio is leaving today but we are staying for a few extra days to soak up a little more sun and relaxation and some one-on-one time.
Given that we practice twice a day on these retreats, I bring quite the collection of yoga clothes with me. For the past several years I have definitely been known as the shorts girl and I wore them year-round to practice, teach and workout. You would rarely find me in pants. But over the last few months I have been all about leggings and have acquired quite a collection of bright, colorful and patterned workout pants.
Just a few days before we left for our trip I received my first pair of Dona Jo leggings in the mail to try out.
I selected the “Brave” pattern and it’s a gorgeous mix of pink, purple, blue and yellow. All of my faves wrapped into one beautiful pattern.
These leggings are so lightweight and comfy and feel like second skin but they’re also well-made and not see through at all. The waistband is wide and generous and doesn’t cut into you. I like that the length is long enough to wrap over the heel and I really love that they only come in two sizes, size one and size two. You can read more about the various fabrics, technology and quality on their website.
I’m excited to offer a discount code AND giveaway for all of you today!

We did four rounds of 50 seconds on, 10 seconds off of the following five exercises with one minute rest between.
1) Walking lunges
2) Jumping jacks or simulate jump rope hops

Off to hit the gym then hit the beach. Have a great day!
