Wouldn’t you love a yoga pose that strengths your legs, core, and arms all the same time? It’s your lucky day, because Vasisthasana, or side plank, does just that! This gratifying pose not only strengthens and tones, but will improve your balance as well. 
Starting in high plank, place your right hand in the center of your mat. Gracefully shift your weight onto the outside edge of your right foot and stack your left foot on top of the right. Slowly find enough balance to float your left arm up to the sky. Feel yourself push against the floor while reaching up out of your left fingertips. Engage your core and quadriceps for added stability. Lift your hips slightly so there is one long line from the top of your head, down to your heels. Hold this pose for 5-10 breathes and then repeat on the other side.
If this is too much, come down onto a bent right knee. This modification will take some of the weight out of the wrists, as well as provide extra stability.
For an added challenge, trace your left foot up the inseam of your right leg, and find a ‘tree pose’ variation, while remaining in side plank.

YogaBabes’ Guilt-Free Mojitos!
In a shaker, place 12 organic mint leaves, 4 shots of papagayo organic rum, juice of 1 large organic lime, and 2 tablespoons of agave. Shake vigorously until chilled. Distribute among 4 glasses and top off with club soda and garnish with mint leaves. 
YogaBabes’ Mojitos taste refreshing and delicious because of the natural, pesticide-free ingredients. We use agave instead of sugar to ward off feeling nasty the next morning. Papagayo organic rum is created with organically harvested sugarcane by farmers who are treated fairly. If you are feeling bold, throw in some crushed strawberries, blueberries, or pomegranates. 
YB would like to thank Sarah Clark for the darling photos!

YogaBabes Yoga Mat Cleaner:

You will need:

1 Spray bottle

Fill it half up with water

Fill it half up with witch hazel 

Use 15-25 drops total of any or all of the following essential oils: lemongrass, lemon, tea tree oil, or eucalyptus oil.

The reason I use witch hazel is because it is an astringent, so it cleans like an alcohol-based product would but without any of the drying, damaging effects. It is safe on our expensive mats and safe for our skin. I recommend using the aforementioned oil since they are known for their natural antimicrobial qualities. Mind you, this cleaner is so safe- it can be used for diaper changing tables, steering wheels, massage table, etc. I love this formula because it leaves my mat smelling wonderful and I never have to worry about resting my forehead on the mat during child’s pose!

If you are not interested in creating your own cleaner, I would highly recommend purchasing Thieves by YoungLiving. It is just as safe and still a very effective disinfectant. You can purchase it here: http://www.secretofthieves.com/thieves-cleaner.cfm
