One of the best things to do in Bali is a bit of morning yoga. The island is teaming with expats who come to Bali as a yoga 'mecca' from all around the world. We thought it was the perfect opportunity to get out our yoga towels!
The talented Irena Bartolec from Ashtanga Yoga Mumma came to our Colour Of Summer villa for an hour long class of long, slow Hatha Yoga. Starting with guided meditation and ending with a couple of minutes in Shavasana, our ambassadors were guided through a series of simple yoga poses. For some in our group it was their first practice, but for seasoned yogis Preethi and Jennifer, our ambassadors from Mumbai, the class was second nature. From bridge to warrior three, there was no pose too hard for these two.
The featured towels are from our Active Collection which come in 5 gorgeous pastel colours in a heathered 'marle' design. They are super soft, perfect for yoga and made from 30% recycled plastic bottles!
Now those are some good looking towels! (from Dock & Bay's Active Collection of course) - our Extra Large size is perfect for yoga at 200cm / 78" in length.
Keely got her preferred Rainforest Green colour, and she loves it!
