GIVEAWAY: NamaSTAY Yoga Towels & Mat Spray

CALLING ALL YOGIS NEAR AND FAR! I’m excited to have a treat for you today…

If you practice hot yoga, you’re  familiar with the slip-and-slide that the warm room can bring. So I’m ready to introduce you to NamaSTAY Yoga Towels & Mat Spray.

NamaSTAY is a Cleveland based company — even better! The owner and brains behind this towel-based business is Cherie Greenwald, a yogini in nearby Shaker Heights. #LocalFTW!

Get to know their products a bit better - as shared by the company:

  • “Quick drying and extremely absorbent, this lightweight yoga towel helps to keep you safe & confident during your yoga practice… This 100% recyclable yoga mat towel fits all standard size yoga mats (68″ X 24″ Small OR 72″ X 26″ Medium).”
  • NamaSTAY Yoga Spray is an all-natural, antibacterial multipurpose yoga spray – it’s a mat cleaner and yoga towel & clothes freshener.  It has a fresh, uplifting citrus scent with undertones of patchouli and lavender (we like to call it “Hippie Scent”).  Plus, it contains tea tree oil for its antibacterial properties.”

GIVEAWAY: Yuri’s Night Space Party at Great Lakes Science Center

We’ve gone to a lot of events over the course of my blogging career, but one event gets the credit for two of my all time favorite Hansen family dancing photos:

 

Yes, Hans fist pumping, and me dancing with a cut out of Sam Adams. Thank you Yuri’s Night 2012.

Don’t know what Yuri’s Night is? Well, it’s my duty as “Mrs. NASA Glenn” to share just what it’s all about — with help from Great Lakes Science Center:

Yuri’s Night parties and events are held around the world every April in commemoration of April 12, 1961, the day of cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin’s first manned space flight, and April 12, 1981, the inaugural launch of NASA’s Space Shuttle. As home of the NASA Glenn Visitor Center, the Science Center is thrilled to be the host of Cleveland’s official Yuri’s Night celebration.

And since last year we were at a NASA Social, and this year I’ll be at a yoga teacher training (#shocker), I thought it might be fun to get you involved in this year’s Cleveland Yuri’s Night.

Taking place on Saturday, April 12, this year’s Cleveland Yuri’s Night will include:

  • Live music by Abby Normal, Vibe & Direct, DJ 41SE7EN and OZMTZ
  • Dancing all night long
  • Beer and wine - Sam Adams beer, Angry Orchard cider, Barefoot wines and light hors d’oeuvres included in ticket price while supplies last; cash bar for cocktails and special treats
  • New!  a Black Light Lounge and outdoor deck party experience (weather permitting)
  • A costume contest – wear your best space-themed attire!
  • The opportunity to explore the NASA Glenn Visitor Center and the special exhibition, Wildlife Rescue
  • the GLSC’s Big Science Show, cool science demos and their signature midnight balloon drop
  • Special appearances by NASA astronaut Greg H. Johnson, Cleveland Institute of Art, the Great Lakes Base of the Rebel Legion, Ohio Garrison / 501st Legion and the Mandalorian Mercs
  • Free parking in the GLSC’s attached garage
