Week of giveaways: oGorgeous- ENDED

Congratulations to the lucky Larabar 16-pack and tee winner:

*Edited since I did a screen shot fail and many of you couldn’t see it (sorry about that!)

Emma! She said:

YUMMO!!! In the UK I have only been able to get my paws on Apple Pie Larabar – I reeeeeeeeeeally wish I could try some other flavours!!!! Anyway when I’m not snacking on Apple Pie Larabar my favourite snack at the moment is carrot sticks with homemade hummus. (blitz chick peans/garbanzo beans with olive oil, garlic, S&P, lemon juice – easy peasy lemon squeezy!)

Please send me your shipping info and shirt size to me at fitnessista at gmail dot com (subject: LARABAR WINNER!) 🙂

For today’s giveaway, something gorgeous:


an oGorgeous yoga bag!

I picked the pleated pocket in chrome dazzle– very similar to the bag that Cassey sent me over the holidays.


I get so many compliments on the bag, and am so excited that she kindly offered to send the yoga mat version (valued at $110) to a lucky fitnessista 🙂



This giveaway has ended! Did you win? Find out here.

    Malasana ! Very grounding and a great hip opener!

  2. Alexandra on June 8, 2012 at 9:52 am

    Scorpion or handstand. They are my work in progress poses

  3. Zana on June 8, 2012 at 9:58 am

    Child’s Pose – the best feeling in the morning.

  4. Jordan @ Bake Write Sleep on June 8, 2012 at 10:01 am

    Hate to jump on the bandwagon, but Pigeon, it is!

  5. Jordan @ Bake Write Sleep on June 8, 2012 at 10:03 am



    Ballet dance workout. I’m a sucker for dancing. 😀

  6. Corinne on June 8, 2012 at 10:06 am

    Warrior II- i always feel so strong flowing out of it 🙂

  7. Diana Sandelovsky on June 8, 2012 at 10:11 am

    I love chair pose because I think it really trims my inner thighs! I also love pigeon pose, it is such a great hip opener!!

  8. Diana Sandelovsky on June 8, 2012 at 10:12 am

    bonus entry – I love the bag!


    great treamill routine for when your usual stuff gets boring 🙂

  9. Julie on June 8, 2012 at 10:15 am

    I love downward dog to stretch my legs after running and childs pose to calm my breathing after a long workout and stretch!

  10. melanie on June 8, 2012 at 10:21 am

    I’m a fan of half pigeon. My hips always feel so great after staying there for a little while!

  11. Megan S on June 8, 2012 at 10:27 am

    Tree pose! It’s always a good indicator of how tired I am.

  12. Kimmoy on June 8, 2012 at 10:33 am

    So interesting how many of us are in love with hip opening postes, guess I’m not the only one who needs to stretch this area multiple times a day. I love the single leg pigeon pose. Works wonders for my hips and tush. I also foam roll those areas on a regular too.

    As a side note, I love Cassey! She’s so cheerful in all of her workouts and sure knows how to make your muscles BURN!

  13. Jessica B on June 8, 2012 at 10:36 am

    I don’t really have a fav pose as I am just beginning yoga but I must say I had a hard time relaxing at first and the more i continue practicing the better i get at being able to just let my mind go and not worry.

  14. Nic on June 8, 2012 at 10:38 am

    I also love downdog, especially when partnered with someone else who’s pushing back on my hips/lower back AAAHHHHHHHHH. My personal challenge is to do downdog on the wall for 5 breaths.

  15. Tracy on June 8, 2012 at 10:39 am

    The pigeon pose! I love the stretch it gives in the hips!

  16. Sarah W on June 8, 2012 at 10:40 am

    Double Pigeon Pose because it hurts so good!

  17. Chelsea brown on June 8, 2012 at 10:42 am

    Childs pose and happy baby! I know they’re simple, but so relaxing! 🙂

  18. Meghan on June 8, 2012 at 10:43 am

    Reading this on a Friday morning I thought – gosh, what yoga pose is my favorite? After racking my brain for my top top favorite, the one that I can really relax, and let go of my day…I was reminded of the serious yoga class I was in once…everyone was sweaty, hot, working hard, straight-faced and we got in to baby pose. I love baby pose! It’s fun to do and I love the stretch it gives my runner’s legs! Well, the gentleman next to me was so relaxed, and stretching into his belly so hard that he let out a toot! I knew the whole class heard it and i was the only one trying to hold back giggles, but I couldn’t! I started chuckling to myself IN BABY POSE on the floor! it was one of those times you’re trying so hard to hold in the laughter that it hurts!
    and my pinterest workout inspiration/love:

  25. Andrea @ Vegvacious on June 8, 2012 at 10:53 am

    Sweet giveaway!!! I love doing sun salutations each morning before I start my day….I know it’s not a “pose” per se, but it’s my fave. I also love the Warrior poses.

  26. Jossy on June 8, 2012 at 10:53 am

    Downward dog for the win!!!!

  27. Yin on June 8, 2012 at 10:54 am

    My favorite yoga pose is simple, the child’s pose. It completely relaxes me 🙂

  32. Jeannine on June 8, 2012 at 11:05 am

    I love pinterest for all my ideas. Half of my wedding planning came from that site! I found a great workout that includes both cardio and exercises you can do without the gym.

  33. Kristen DD on June 8, 2012 at 11:09 am

  39. Tianna on June 8, 2012 at 11:16 am


  40. Jess on June 8, 2012 at 11:18 am

    What a great giveaway! I’m a huge fan of Casseys as well! My favorite pose would probably be dolphin. I love the shoulder exercise I get from it and it feels great on my lower back. I’m actually trying my first bikram class tonight. Hope it’s as great as you’ve made it seem in past posts!

  41. Yvette on June 8, 2012 at 11:26 am

    My favorite pose is Savasana (Corpse Pose). For several reasons. It is a total body and mind exercise. It is similar to a good stretch — I feel so open and relaxed afterword. At the the time it is a mental exercise in stilling the mind and being present. And finally, because it comes at the end of a yoga session, it also means I’ve just accomplished something.

  42. britt on June 8, 2012 at 1:19 pm

    cute bag! i have a lot of problems with my IT band and the half pigeon seems to help tremendously. definitely my favorite!

  43. britt on June 8, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    it’s hard to pick just one favorite workout…
