I have told you before that I practice yoga. I get several benefits; everything from flexibility to peace of mind. I read that if you add resistance bands to your routine, you would also get the added benefit of strengthening your muscles, which at my age is much needed for bone health.
I know you have heard me talk about Aurorae before, I have several of their products in my yoga bag and at home. I love the mats ad burn their candles for relaxation. It seemed a natural place for me to look for adding any yoga tools. I am super glad I looked there because they had just what I needed.
The Aurorae Resistance Bands Set is really something special. It comes with everything you need to add these bands in several different ways. I was so impressed by how complete the set was for the price. It really is a super bargain!
What you will get is: padded handles that are so comfy and durable, even the clips used to hold them to the bands seem very high quality and sturdy and a door anchor and an ankle strap so that you can use these to work all of your muscle groups. There is a guide book that has pictures and tells you which exercise is going to work what group as well. I liked that; it made it easy to plan what to do. There is even a cute zippered carrying case that holds all of the bits and parts and it is small enough to toss in your purse, well my purse anyways.
Of course it also comes with the bands, there are five of them that vary in resistance from 2-30 pounds depending on how you are using the bands. I started with the easiest and, of course, my show off husband started with the hardest, but we were both able to get a good workout with them. After looking closely at everything and using the set for several weeks, both me and my husband feel great about being able to recommend them as durable and reliable way to add strength training to your current routine.
Talk about adding a new level to already challenging poses!
