Fitness icon, entrepreneur and WWE champion, Trish Stratus, has teamed up with HoMedics Canada to produce her own line of unique yoga and fitness gear, Stratusphere Living, following the success of her Stratusphere Yoga Studio in Ontario.
The Stratusphere Living line is all-inclusive yoga kit including an the weighted Fitgloves – which they claim is a first for yogis – an eco-friendly TPE yoga mat, ultra-absorbing yoga towel, a yoga block, Trish’s Stratusphere Yoga DVD and her nuTrishion journal.
Q. What makes the Stratusphere yoga DVD different from others?
A. This workout is something I developed by accident actually – it’s what I call a happy accident! Coming from a fitness background and having to perform in peak condition with WWE for so many years, it was all about cardio and strength training for me. I don’t think I would have ever pursued yoga if I hadn’t used it like I did to aid with my back injury recovery. I think this is how most ‘fitness-minded’ people perceive yoga – I hear it all the time ‘but is yoga a workout?’ OnceI began seeing the positive effects yoga had not only on my level of fitness, but on my overall sense of wellbeing, that’s when I decided that my yoga practice is something that will forever be a part of my life.
As a busy person, I’m forever trying to multi-task, so I was trying to figure out how to balance my yoga sessions and my weight training sessions – who has time for both now a days?! So, what I’ve done with my workout is integrate resistance training movements into a yoga flow so you get the best of both worlds. I also broke the workout down into manageable 10 minute blocks that focus on different parts of your body. So you focus on trouble spots or get a complete 50 minute workout that is truly a total mind body workout […]
Trish Stratus’ Stratusphere Living is currently available at London Drugs and Sportchek; Sears, GNC, and Home Outfitters will sell the kit in early October.
