Stretching is like flossing. We know it’s good for us, but some of us don’t do it as often as we should. To help you get the most out of stretching – and maybe inspire you to do it more often – MEC staffer Jessica chatted with Halfmoon Yoga Products about using yoga props to hit the stretching sweet spot.

Last week rose to the top of my personal charts when a shipment of video production equipment arrived in a box with my name stamped all over it! I’d barely cracked it open when Creative Manager, Dianne asked if I’d like to test it out at an MEC yoga wear photo shoot the next day. No need to ask twice.
