High Vibrations Yoga DVD by Jo Tastula

I’ve been practicing yoga pretty regularly lately with YogaGlo and one of my favorite yoga teachers on the site is Jo Tastula. Besides having a great Australian accent she teaches a pretty darn near perfect vinyasa flow class. I always feel inspired, focused, and in the moment afterwards. Most of her classes on YogaGlo range between 30 and 60 minutes–enough time to get good and sweaty–, but I recently discovered she also has an excellently produced DVD, High Vibrations Yoga, which consists of five short meditations and five sun salutation practices. Any combination of the practices can be completed in less than 20 minutes. Great for those moments when you don’t have a lot of time, but want to reconnect with and realign your body’s energy.

  1. THANKS! I’ve been wondering what I could do for a DIY solution… but quite honestly too lazy to google it until I actually splurged on a new mat.

  2. Good solution that I can do at my house. I have also put my mat in the washing machine a couple of times a year, just make sure if you do this that you air dry it or else your mat may not respond favorably to the heat. If you must use the dryer, use low heat.

  3. This is great! I can now freshen my dirty yoga mat. Thank you for this!
