DIY Yoga mat strap

While you’re at it, why not make your own yoga mat cleaning spray!? We found a great post on A Denver Home Companion.

After you made your DIY yoga strap and cleaning spray, there is only one thing left to do… gather your gear and go take a yoga class!

There’s nothing like being in a yoga studio and having an instructor to assist you, but if you’re on a tight budget OR can’t leave the house, here is an amazing website for you to practice yoga from home: Do Yoga with Me!

Lucky us, we have a yoga instructor who comes to CHARM IT! headquarters every now and again. She recently gave us some pointers on doing yoga with kids!

Namaste, DIY Diva!

    Hi I’m trying to make this at home for my own yoga mat, but the ribbon seems too thin to hold it together. Is there any other kind of fabric that would work better?
