I sincerely want to try yoga. It's just that, well, of all my talents (many of them useless), exercising isn't really one of them. If you feel the same way as I do, the Yogo Bag from Wishing Fish could possibly provide hope for folks like us. This handy bag has plenty of room for your mat, shoes, towel, and lots of pockets for keys and such. The lightweight canvas bag is accented with ultrasuede and is on sale now for only $64. Just looking at this bag makes me want to drop my Twinkies and head to the gym. And yes, I said Twinkies, as in the plural form. One for each hand.
