Juliet Kaska is a leading fitness expert, a Hollywood favorite and Master Pilates Teacher. In the past decade, she’s been in the attention of the media not just for training celebrities, but also for the welcoming, home-like atmosphere in her studio.
One of her favorite exercises is yoga – for staying strong and flexible, easing anxiety and tension (it’s great for desk workers!) and developing mindfulness. We asked Juliet for the yoga gear that every girl needs.
