Edit: My Fitness Favorites

 

The new year usually reminds us all of the healthy habits we want in our lives, and fitness is often pretty high on the list. Years of dancing has made moving every day a pretty essential part of my life, even though I'm not currently sporting a leotard six days a week. These days you'll find me just as often in a dance studio as on my yoga mat for an at-home class or conditioning. Here's some of my favorite gear:

 

ballet beautiful stretch wrap sweater, $75
a perfect ballet-meets-fitness piece that's good for any studio (or at-home) class.

 

athleta chaturanga leggings, $74 
my favorite leggings - comfortable, flattering, and great quality. striped version here!

 

bkr glass water bottle, $40 
three years in and mine hasn't broken!

 

lululemon energy bra, $52
the best low-impact sports bra I've ever found.

 

manduka pro mat, $110
very much worth the price - this mat has a lifetime guarantee, great texture (even for hot yoga), and ample cushioning for my injured knee and inversion-averse wrists. it is heavy, so a mat strap is a must for carrying. more colors here!

 

gapfit striped crewneck, $35
I've had this layering top for a few years, and get asked about it almost every time I wear it. 
available in more colors (some on sale) - 
aaand it has thumb holes!

 

alo high-waisted goddess leggings, $102
 my favorite *fancy* leggings - amazing shape, and I love the built-in legwarmers.
available in more colors.

 

 

high density foam roller, $36
I can't believe how long it took me to get a foam roller - I use it at least once a week. Here's a good routine to start!

 

 

cozy jacket, $118
a warm outer layer is lovely to have for chilly days.

 

 

zella socks, $25
tip: stock up on these during the Nordstrom sale.

 

...and don't forget to turn on some music while you move!
