Gaiam.com Review

I don't exercise as much as I'd like to since I am finishing up my last year of college. I walk everywhere as I live in New York City, but let's face it, it's not always enough. It's hard to resist the tempting Italian and Thai restaurants too.
Gaiam.com was kind enough to send me a yoga mat and Reebook bootcamp dvd to review.

History of Gaiam
Founded in Boulder, Colorado in 1988, Gaiam is a provider of information, goods and services to customers who value the environment, a sustainable economy, healthy lifestyles, alternative healthcare and personal development.

Our Name
Gaiam (pronounced "guy-um"), is a fusion of the words "Gaia" and "I am" Gaia, mother Earth, was honored on the Isle of Crete in ancient Greece 5,000 years ago by the Minoan civilization. This civilization valued education, art, science, recreation, and the environment and believed that the Earth was directly connected to its existence and daily life. The concept of Gaia stems from the ancient philosophy that the Earth is a living entity. At Gaiam, we believe that all of the Earth's living matter, air, oceans and land form an interconnected system that can be seen as a single entity. The word Gaiam represents planetary awareness, preservation and support of the interconnectivity of all living things. By nurturing, protecting and respecting our planet, its natural resources and its inhabitants, we enrich our own lives and those of future generations.

Company Services
By offering information, products and services under Gaiam's name or recommendation, we are working to become the source for individuals and businesses interested in natural health, ecological lifestyles, personal growth and sustainable commerce.

We offer the highest quality branded products and services available, many of which are exclusively produced for Gaiam.

Gaiam offers fantastic yoga clothes and accessories, fair trade, gifts, personal care, and items for the home. They have so many unique items.

I was sent the Dragonfly Hydrangea Yoga Mat. It's so pretty!

So pretty in pink, our Dragonfly Hydrangea yoga mat has a light-tack, cushioned, nonslip surface that’s latex free. Perfect for home or studio use, it offers the safety and comfort needed to maintain poses and ensure proper alignment.

The yoga mat is long and provides a great surface for doing my stretches on. I like that it is non-slip and stays put while exercising. I love pink and of course the design is very cute too.

Reebok Boot Camp DVD

It's time to get serious about transforming your body and taking your body beyond the burn. Reebok's BootCamp DVD workout combines interval cardio and strength training exercises for maximum results.

Join Tanja Djelevic as she keeps you burning fat and sculpting muscles with a variety of challenging routines. Prepare to work hard and burn some serious calories!

This is a great DVD. It's a very intense workout and really sets you up for a physical challenge. I like that you can do an express workout if you don't have the time for a normal workout. I really like the exercise and I feel results already!
