Baggu | ‘Duck Bag’ Canvas Tote

Cost | $32.00

Let’s just start with the bag I use first for holding all of my yoga/gym must haves and it’s the Baggu ‘Duck Bag’ Canvas Tote in the pattern Sailor Stripe and besides from the pattern I really like that this bag holds everything I need and at the same time it’s not heavy and offers 3 easy ways of carrying through using the just the handles and carrying the bag that way, it can also be used as a crossbody or shoulder bag thanks to its adjustable strap.

Yuni | Shower Sheets

Cost | $15.00

The next item that’s always in my yoga/gym bag is an absolute must and they are the Yuni Shower Sheets and these are full body wipes that are perfect for lightly freshening up after a light workout or yoga class. The Yuni Shower Sheet wipes are about the size of a wash cloth just a little bit bigger, they have a pleasant herbal scent that’s not only relaxing, but refreshing as well. I mean these wipes do not even come an inch close to what a great shower can do after a workout, but if you’re looking to, just like I said freshen up and be left with a nice calming fragrance these wipes are perfect.
