Yoga for Veterans Benefit

This Thursday, Kaia Yoga in Westport Connecticut is hosting “Operation Finding Peace“.  All proceeds from the event will benefit Give Back Yoga’s “Yoga for Veterans” program.

According to Give Back Yoga, “Yoga is being introduced to a growing number of veterans deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan struggling with serious mental health problems including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), major depression, and traumatic brain injury. Providing instruction and practices in yoga and meditation can help them transition back to civilian life and reconnect with themselves, friends, and families.”

We have donated a Barefoot Yoga Hybrid Eco Mat, Masala Practice Rug, Solid Silk Eye Pillow, and Cotton Velvet Yoga Mat Bag for their Silent Auction. All proceeds will go to support the incredible work that The Give Back Foundation is doing. We’re delighted to be involved, and thank Kaia Yoga for letting us be a part of their wonderful event!

Oulessebougou Alliance’s 26th Annual Dinner Auction

The Oulessebougou Alliance will be holding their Annual Dinner Auction on Saturday, May 12th in Salt Lake City. Funds raised through the Auction will enable the Alliance to continue its education, healthcare and economic development projects in 25 rural villages in Mali. The Alliance works cooperatively with villagers to: dig and maintain drinking wells, immunize women and children, provide mosquito netting to prevent malaria, train village health workers and midwives, provide income-generating loans, construct elementary schools and train teachers, provide text books and school supplies.

We’ve donated one of our Silk Sari Eye Pillows for auction, and we’re very proud to be a small part of this year’s event. Barefoot Yoga wishes the Oulessebougou Alliance the best of luck with their event and congratulates them on their successes and their great works!

Silk Eye Pillows make the perfect Mother’s Day gift!

Our Barefoot Yoga Silk Eye Pillows were featured recently at “Rachel Roy’s Favorite Things” on Real Simple. She says, “A flaxseed-and-lavender eye pillow relaxes me on the plane.”

They make a beautiful and thoughtful gift, so think about giving Mom a relaxing silk eye pillow for Mother’s Day!
