1. The ideal yoga/gym bag should be made of anit-microbial fabric instead of the traditional nylon or canvas bag as this helps fight the bad odors present in our sweaty clothes and gym lockers.
2. Must have plenty of space for yoga mat and other gym clothes and gear.
3. Lots of pockets: a waterproof pocket for your water bottle, a pocket for headphones and portable music gear, a pocket for your ID, car keys, etc.

We are very pleased and humbled that some of our customers took the time out to say nice things about us and our company.
"I bought the Go Anywhere and the Sling bag plus different size Carry All bags. They have been great for the gym, especially putting my dirty clothes and sneakers in the Carry Alls but I have really loved these bags for diaper bags and travel. They hold so much and I don't have to worry if something spills plus they are way cuter than most diaper bags. And they can take a beating during international travel with two kids under the age of 5!"
"I am pleasantly satisfied with my shopping experience. Ordering was easy and precise. And I love my Yoga bag..".
"I like the "Go anywhere" bag that I ordered. It's nice that the company is ECO friendly too".
"I love my Rowve wristlet! I use to carry my things with me at the gym. It is great since it is waterproof and easily cleanable".

As you know September has been designated National Yoga Month by the Department of Health and Human Services. Their goal is to help the public become aware of the benefits of yoga. Aside from feeling good, the stretching and breathing one does in yoga helps in alleviating many health issues. Here is just a sampling of the benefits of a regular yoga practice based on an article in Diet in Review:
- Decrease Stress
- Improve Flexibility
- Increase Endurance
- Improve Sleep
- Increase Immunity
- Decrease Pain
- Improve Steadiness/Coordination
- Improve Depth Perception
- Improve Balance/Posture
- Improve Integrated Functioning of Body Parts
Pictures one normally sees of the average yogi is of a white, female between the age of 18 and 45 and in great physical shape. However, that stereotype of a yogi is changing. Yoga is great for all age groups, all sizes of individuals and for individuals with various physical and emotional challenges.
Yoga has been shown to help teens with body image issues as well as with anger issues. It is often a safe outlet for the adolescent need to push their limits(www.theartofyogaproject). According to JoAnna Ross, founder ofYoga By the Dozen , yoga is especially effective for autistic children. Yoga helps “…develop their cognitive and motor skills; and foster self-confidence and respect.”. Yoga works with autistic children when other sports and activities don’t because of the repetition and calm atmosphere.
Because of it’s low-impact form of exercise yoga is excellent for seniors. It not only helps to build lean muscle mass and balance, both needed in reducing the risk of age-related falls and accidents, but it also fights other health conditions related to age such as high blood pressure, arthritis and incontinence. An added benefit of yoga for seniors is that it provides a sense of community, a way to socialize and connect with others.
And let’s not forget our furry friends. There really is a yoga classefor dogs, dubbed Doga. Amy Stevens, creator of Yoga4Dogs DVD, feels that doga imparts many of the same benefits for dogs as yoga does for humans, improving flexibility and core strength.. Not to mention,(because it is done with the dog owner) fostering bonding.
Don’t think you have time for Yoga? Oh yes you do. Yoga can be done anywhere, at work, in the park or waiting for the copy machine at work. Practicing one posture can help to calm your mind, ease an aching back or stiff neck and energize you.
And, Rowve has just the bag to help you carry all your yoga clothes, towels, mats and other accessories. Regardless of where or when or what type of yoga you do. At Rowve.com you will be able to find a bag to fit your Yoga needs.

Several months ago I saw an article on how to pack your gym bag. I was a curious, was there a special way to pack a gym bag, perhaps something I was missing? The article was actually more on what to pack in your gym bag, however some of the advice in this particular article led me to search the cyber world to see if there were any other articles out there. To my surprise there were, and many carried the same shocking tips; using plastic bags. One advised that if you were planning on showering to include several plastic bags to put damp or sweaty clothes in. Another suggested a zip top plastic bag for damp items, using a sealed plastic bag to help keep bacteria and odors from spreading to the rest of your workout gear. By the time I was finished reading I wondered how anyone could not know the dangers to the environment plastic bags cause. Although there were many good tips, especially for a newbie to the gym, using plastic bags was definitely not one of them. I wanted to shout “Use Rowve bags, they are perfect for the gym. Here are some of the best tips:
1. Ideally choose a gym bag made of anti-microbial fabric instead of a traditional duffle bag as this helps fight the bad odors that are present in may locker rooms.
2. A gym bag should have multile pockets for all your personal items and exercise gear.
3. A waterproof pocket for your water bottle
4. A pocket for headphones and portable music gear.
This sounds like they are describing a Rowve Bag. Our Go Anywhere bag is large enough for all your gym needs. It’s lined with a laminate fabric which is easy to clean and disinfect so you don’t get the bad odors from sweaty gym gear. It has a several pockets, a laminated pocket on the side large enough for a water bottle, and a back pocket perfect for an ipod or other MP3 players, and headphones. The front clips work great for holding a rolled wet towel, so anything inside the bag doesn’t get wet. And for your sweaty clothes, shoes, swimsuits, cosmetics, body wash, shampoo, etc., Rowve carried three different size Carry All bags which fit great inside the Go Anywhere bag. So it’s obvious, if you’re going to the gym, for any reason, yoga, swimming, workouts, you need a Rowve bag.
