It's been a few weeks since revitalize, and we're still thinking about it. The weekend wasn't just restorative—it was invigorating. From the fresh mountain air and the mouthwatering, nourishing food to the inspiring talks on the future of nutrition, fitness, health, and technology and the Reiki, yoga, and breathwork sessions, this year's revitalize was been one for the books.
The top-notch speakers and instructors we spent time with seem to have a lot of things down, from how to breathe for optimal anxiety relief to exactly what foods to eat to give you more energy. Because we wish we could bottle up the magic of every revitalize attendee and take it home with us, we chatted with world-famous yogis Kathryn Budig and Caley Alyssa to find out what they always have in their yoga tool kit. Here's what they had to say.
Oils, probiotics, and a daily meditation.
Caley Alyssa, RYT 900 and the face of mbg's 100-hour yoga training, has a diverse list when it comes to keeping her yoga practice strong. "I always keep my Saje Natural Wellness pocket pharmacy on hand, which provides me with energy and relief throughout the day," she says. "I also make sure to moisturize with coconut oil, take probiotics (gotta support that gut health!), meditate every day—20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes in the evening. I never go anywhere without my reusable water bottle or my Wild Unknown tarot deck (you never know when you'll need them!) or my gratitude journal. Gratitude is the foundation of any yoga practice."
Chinese herbs and TuneUp balls.
Internationally celebrated yoga instructor and mbg class instructor Kathryn Budig has a more minimalistic approach and swears by three items to keep her practice top-notch. "I always have Yoga TuneUp balls around—trigger point therapy works wonders! Peppermint essential oils help keep me calm, cool, and clearheaded, and Chinese herb patches are amazing for pain management."
