  1. I'd love the Acai because purple is always so calming when I work out.

    ReplyDelete
  2. Oh definitely denim. So pretty. I should really start doing yoga again, grad school stress is FIERCE.

    ReplyDelete
  3. The marine color is pretty and I've never seen anyone in any of my classes with that color (always a bonus when you know which one is yours!)

    ReplyDelete
  4. I think that the sangria one is gorgeous. Looks like a fantastic mat. I agree with gradlearnlife, grad school/writing the dissertation is incredibly stressful. I need to join you during this yoga challenge!

    ReplyDelete
  5. The moss is gorgeous and very calming.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Moss! Green is my favorite color ever.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Oh man, what awesome goodies! I love yoga (going on a retreat to Costa Rica next month!!!!), and would totally rock the Acai mat at my favorite studios around town.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Camo or Lava. I'm kind of a plain sort of girl. :)

    ReplyDelete
  9. Moss: I love the grassy look of it, makes it seem somehow more nature-y. And the big thing I love about yoga is that you don't have to head to the gym to do it.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I have been looking around for a new yoga mat, and the are absolutely gorgeous! I think I would choose the sangria.. but it's really a hard call between that, moss, and acai!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I love the names of the colors!
    I'd go with the Sangria. It's really pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I love the sangria! What a great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I like the sangria color mat. Not only is the color beautiful, most of my work out clothes are blue and green, and I hate when my yoga mat clashes with my outfit :-) The Denim and Moss colors run that risk!

    ReplyDelete
  14. i think i would want the blue mat!! reminds me of the sky + ocean, my two favorite things

    ReplyDelete
  15. GREEN [moss]. Totally and all the way. Green color makes me salivate. Give me a green mat and I can drool all day long... and then pretend I was working out so hard I sweated bullets :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. I like the Denim colored mat.

    I agree that Yoga download is great. I particularly enjoy the 60 minute Yoga for Runners.

    In addition to Bikram, you should try at least 1 hot vinyasa class. These classes are warm (ok, hot) like Bikram, but incorporate down dog, chaturanga, and other 'flow' sequences.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I like them all, but I like the Sangria. Man, my yoga mat is older than dirt. That's kind of gross.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'd go with the sangria. Two reasons I'm excited about this:

    I don't current have a mat, and do stuff on the gym floor. I know, terrible. I cringe every time I read your post on Things One Can Get at the Gym.

    I'm trying to improve my mind body workout connection. Unlike you, I've never really found it, but like you, I could use a break from repeat heavy lifting and running workouts.

    ReplyDelete
  19. oh the marine one is so pretty! my mat is what i would nicely call "vintage" & i would so love a lovely brand-new one :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I like the acai! I also recently hopped back on the yoga train...I don't even know why or how I got off of it in the first place!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm torn between marine and acai. I like the bright of the marine, but purple is my power color so I'd probably go for that.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I would choose purple. Purple is the color for pancreatic cancer awareness and my mom is battling. Life is incredibly stressful so a little yoga would do me good!

    ReplyDelete
  23. So many nice colors. I'm torn between the marine and sangria, but since pink normally wins out when it comes to things like that, I would go with sangria.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I think marine would be delightful!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Ohhh I would pick the Acai for sure. I love me some purple.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'd choose lava! Been looking for a black yoga mat for ages!

    ReplyDelete
  27. i love the Denim color. very nice and muted.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Denim, definitely! But is the giveaway open to all? I'm not in the US...

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm a sangria girl, although I have to say it was a tough choice.

    ReplyDelete
  30. My response remains the same since I was four-purple please!

    ReplyDelete
  31. The moss is calling to me! (Can't you hear it? I think it wants me to win it! haha)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I am sure if I won the Moss colored one then spring could come sooner in my cold barren part of the world :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I want the sangria color because that is my favorite drink ;) and it would be really pretty and calming to focus on a sangria while painfully staying in good form!

    ReplyDelete
  34. thats great!! i'm not sure if this give-away is international?? anyway, i would choose the moss colour - green is for hope, isn't it ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love the marine one. Can't wait to check out the yoga download site.
    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I think I like the acai the most. Its bright and cheerful! rosiebud63(at)hotmail(dot)com

    ReplyDelete
  37. Aww, this is an amazing package! I would LOVE me a moss green mat. And now I'm also going to check out all the swag to see what I "need"...tricksy!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think I'd like the sangria one. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. This is a great package!! I like the denim or acai the most.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'd like Sangria. What an awesome package. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love the moss, but I might have to get the sangria because it is girly enough that my husband won't steal it from me. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Moss, definitely moss. I will confess to never trying yoga before, other than a few random poses thrown into classes. I'm dubious about any sort of mindfullness exercises since I try not to get inside my mind too much. But maybe that's exactly why I should try it.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I think I would go for the Marine color. I like the Moss too though. I'm a blue & green kind of girl. Nature colors I think - blue sky & green garden = my happy place.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Wow! What an awesome giveaway! I think the Lava mat is my favorite!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'd have to go with Moss - the vibrant green is like a sunny day in the garden. Perfectly zen!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Totally the acai. Purple is my favorite color.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I would love Marine. Reminds me of the the sea.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Moss, most definitely. If it is green I can probably get my four year old to try some poses too!

    ReplyDelete
  49. marine! so pretty. i need a new mat....we recently had a mice family come in our house and i found mouse poop on mine. even though i've cleaned it off--i now think of mice when i use it. ew.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I would choose purple, is my favourite colour and makes me feel focused. I LOVE yoga :) I'm glad you're finally doing this experiment.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I would go with the Sangria! Thanks for offering such a great giveaway!!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Definitely lava! I've always preferred my mats to be non-attention grabbing.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Purple (Acai) in order color-coordinate my mat with my face whilst doing inversions.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I would go with the Marine. This is a great giveaway. Thanks for the 15% off offers too.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I would get moss....what a great colour! This is very timely for me as I was just doing some research on various online yoga sites!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love the moss coloured one. It looks so warm and mellow :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. I would love a purple mat. For no particular reason. I'm just a purple girl i guess ;-).

    ReplyDelete
  58. Marine--it looks very serene. Hah! rhyming has to be worth something, right?

    ReplyDelete
  59. I'm having a hard time choosing between the sangria, denim and acai! Since purple is my favorite color, I would probably choose acai.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I'd have to go with Sangria - I love anything that shouts out to Spain. :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. I would get Denim, great prizes :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. I'd go with Moss. Seems rather soothing, natural, and earthy. Would be very centering. I'm getting calm just thinking about it.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I'd choose lava or Sangria. How can I not choose a colour named after a yummy drink? :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. So tough to choose but I think the acai. I love purple with my yoga :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. I'd have to pick Marine, but the Denim is pretty too.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I love the moss mat. Green is my favorite color

    ReplyDelete
  67. I'd pick the lava color. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  68. It'd be a tough decision between the moss or marine ones.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I just moved across country for my husband's job and now live right above a yoga studio. I started going last month to get out of an exercise slump and love it! I'm loving the marine color but the lava is tempting too.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I just started practicing (HA!) yoga. I would get the sangria mat--if only for the name.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I love the Sangria mat. I've always wanted to try yoga.

    ReplyDelete
  72. They're all beautiful, but the acai is gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I would get the Acai color! It's really soothing to me to look at purple-ish tones while doing yoga.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I would go for the black or denim... Wait or sangria lol. Ive just started adding some basic yoga stretches to my workout and I've already noticed an improvement in my flexibility.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Green is my favorite color, so I would love the moss mat. :)

    ReplyDelete
  76. For me I would choose Camo or Lava, both very grounding colors.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Definitely the marine. I want to surround myself with that color all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Sangria - love the flexibility and strength I gain from Yoga!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I love the Acai! Very soothing color.

    ReplyDelete
  80. I love the Acai. Definitely have to go with a more "girly" color to keep the Hubster from stealing it!

    ReplyDelete
  81. CRAZY!! I seriously was planning on getting myself a Manduka Mat this week for my yoga teacher training! And now I have a chance to get one for FREE or get 15% off! For the color I would have to go with the Acai purple color. Why? Cause I like purple. :) Thanks, Charlotte!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Oh, absolutely Acai...I'm on a purple kick.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Lava! Neutral, so it doesn't clash with my outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  84. I would choose the denim mat. Wow, this is an awesome prize package!

    ReplyDelete
  85. I'd choose the marine color. It's so pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Sangria! The closer to pink the better :)

    ReplyDelete
  87. They're all pretty! I'd probably pick marine, though.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I love them all -- but I like the marine color the best.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Acai! Closest I can come to yoga with berries... without the nausea?!

    ReplyDelete
  90. I would pick Sangria because it's a very lovely wine color! And who doesn't love a good glass of wine after a workout? hahahahaha!!!!!

    P.S. That skirt is SO flipping cute!!! OMG!

    ReplyDelete
  91. camo or lave. simple defines my life.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Thanks for sharing this giveaway! I recently moved to a new town with only one yoga studio that doesn't offer the type of yoga I need. I've been on the hunt for better options and I await your review of the yogadownload site at the end of the month.

    I would choose the brown (camo) - a very grounding color, which I need:)

    ReplyDelete
  93. I would choose lava, because it's not a color I see often in yoga class... AND it's purty!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I would get the Denim :) I bought a cheap yoga mat in Jan when I started practicing yoga and it's already falling apart :( Definitely getting a better one next time!

    ReplyDelete
  95. I'd have to go with Marine, which reminds me of the ocean and keeps me calm.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Oh I would love the lava mat!!! I looked into getting a new mat earlier this year, but had to spend money on other things instead. Thanks so much for the giveaway, it's a great mat, and anyone who wins it will be so happy!

  97. Lava. Pretty, pretty color + goes with all my outfits.

    ReplyDelete
  98. My vote is for Marine. It's such a calming color, like the bathroom at a good spa...

    ReplyDelete
  99. Ohhh, I'd like Lava. Would make me feel like a bad@$$ while doing power yoga or doing bikram.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I love the Marine mat!

    ReplyDelete
  101. I have moss already - so Marine to change things up.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Black, for surely, though the acai is beautiful! Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  103. Oooh--decisions, decisions! Probably Sangria--such a lovely dark pink!

    ReplyDelete
  104. Definitely the green. So lush.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Ah, yoga, I have never done it but like you Charlotte, I have trouble not resting & maybe I should try this. It will be a mental struggle but I know my bod needs it!!! At 53, everything starts to catch up!!!

    I love the Acai mat!!!! Can I eat it too??? ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  106. The moss is my absolute favorite shade of green. Plus, I think it would help me get in the "zen" state of mind that is always the most challenging part of yoga class for me.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Sangria! Such a pretty color!

    ReplyDelete
  108. Definitely the moss, although they are all pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  109. Absolutely acai (a-sigh-ee)!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  110. I would definitely want the Sangria color!!!

    ReplyDelete
  111. I really like the moss color

    ReplyDelete
  112. Denim would be my first choice, but moss is nice too.

    ReplyDelete
  113. I LOVED the Marine one. What a beautiful color. I want to take it to Home Depot and have them match paint to it! I'm excited to try a yoga skirt!! I love a good skirt workout!

    ReplyDelete
  114. I would love any color mat if I won. Your messy scorpion didn't look so messy to me. I did an intense 9 month anusara yoga certification and never looked that good. Have fun with yoga - I love it too! Bobbie

    ReplyDelete
  115. I love the moss one! I wish I were better at yoga ... this would definitely get me on the way!

    ReplyDelete
  116. I'd love the Sangria mat. Nice package and discounts!

    ReplyDelete
  117. I would choose blue because I'm obsessed with blue! And I agree, the scorpion is quite impressive. Can't wait to hear how you like Bikram.

    ReplyDelete
  118. I would go with the acai as that just looks the prettiest!

    ReplyDelete
  119. I think I'd have to go with Sangria! What a great give-away!

    ReplyDelete
  120. Definitely acai, reminds me of calming lavender.

    ReplyDelete
  121. the lava. i'd probably give a large portion of this to my fiance, as he's the yoga nut of the two of us. :)

    ReplyDelete
  122. This comment has been removed by the author.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Denim, definitely as my existing yoga mat is purple.

    ReplyDelete
  124. I love the marine! Hope I win.

    ReplyDelete
  125. I have been practicing HOT YOGA! (yes, the caps and excalamation point are necessary, hehe)since November, and loving every second of it.

    This is a fabulous giveaway and if I won I would choose the denim mat. Looks very calming to me and would go lovely with my purple yoga mat towel. :)

    Fingers and toes all crossed!!!

    ReplyDelete
  126. Definately moss, it would be like doing yoga on a lovely forest floor...

    ReplyDelete
  127. moss. definitely moss. though that was a difficult choice, what with acai, sangria and lava...

    ReplyDelete
  128. Lava. Maybe I can get my color averse hubby to yoga with me! I hear you on the childcare quandry too.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I would pick acai - love purple!!! :)...I love moss as well!

    ReplyDelete
  130. I'd pick Acai but then I would never get to use it. My 3 yr old daughter loves purple too much. I'll pick sangria instead.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Moss. Such a beautiful shade of green!

    ReplyDelete
  132. ooh the Acai color is so pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  133. Acai for sure - I have a purple car, so this would be perfect! :)

    ReplyDelete
  134. Denim - it's the color my current mat would be if you got rid of all the stains (outdoor yoga is tough on mats).

    ReplyDelete
  135. I like the punch in the odette mcsheeky skirt! Pretty cool! Better than wrapping a long sleeved shirt over ye bum! LOL! Nice detailing too!

    yogawithgaileee at gmail dot com

    ReplyDelete
  136. Ohh, and Lava in a mat color! Like to see how these type of yoga mats hold up! Thanks!!

    yogawithgaileee at gmail dot com

    ReplyDelete
  137. Ooh!! Sangria, acai, or moss would be loooovely. I'm really excited about those skirts, though, especially going into springtime!

    ReplyDelete
  138. I love the denim! I think I'm getting more into lighter colors as spring approaches.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Love the acai, it's such a pretty shade of purple.

    ReplyDelete
  140. The moss is a beautiful shade of green. But perhaps I'm just hopeful spring will arrive some time soon.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Sangria! Pink is my sig. color! Brightens my day!

    ReplyDelete
  142. Ooh, the marine one is pretty! And maybe this type of mat would keep my hands from slipping better than the cheap ones I have...

    ReplyDelete
  143. They're all gorgeous colors. I think I'd choose denim.

    ReplyDelete
  144. I would probably choose the lava/black color, simply because when I'm doing yoga/pilates/stretching on a mat I'm usually trying to calm myself, and it's easier for me to do so with dark colors :)
