Aveda Chakra 1 Balancing Body Mist
Held sprays Aveda Chakra 1 Balancing Body Mist on her body every morning before practicing yoga to get grounded before class and the day ahead. “It smells so yummy, and it’s perfect to spray on before and after class for a pick me up,” she says. And if you have trouble sleeping, Held suggests misting it on your pillow for a more peaceful night’s rest.
Schmidt’s All-Natural Deodorant
“Because I practice and teach hot yoga, this is truly a lifesaver!” Held says. Schmidt’s all-natural deodorant is aluminum, paraben, and phthalate-free, and effectively neutralizes underarm odor and absorbs wetness. Held’s scent of choice: lavender-sage.
Emergen-C is a miracle worker for many, but especially for hot yogis, who need to be mindful of replacing the vitamins and minerals they lose during practice. Held pours the powder into her water or coconut water (she loves Zico!). “Being a busy working yogi mom, Emergen-C is my go-to for a quick replenishment, not only for me, but also my kiddos,” she says.
Hydro Flask Bottle
Held claims her Hydro Flask bottle is virtually indestructible, and it keeps her accountable for her water intake. “It’s BPA-free, eco-friendly, and a hugh perk is that it keeps any liquid cold for days,” she says.
doTerra Essential Oils
Depending on the particular day or practice, Held chooses a doTerra essential oil that fits. She loves to sprinkle oils on her mat and often adds a few drops to her water for amazing health benefits. Some of her favorites include Deep Blue Soothing Blend and Lavender. “I immediately feel better when I use my oils!” she says.
Gaiam Yoga Blocks
Held has Kienbocks disease in her left wrist, so she looks to blocks to keep her alignment. “I like cork because it’s antimicrobial,” she says. “As much as I sweat, they stay in great shape without absorbing the sweat and becoming slippery…and stinking.”
