Pick of the Week: Bamboo Yoga Blocks

Samantha’s Pick of the Week is our Bamboo Yoga Blocks. Bamboo protects the environment and the air that we breathe. It is the fastest growing canopy for the regreening of degraded lands, and it releases more oxygen than trees. Bamboo is not only ecologically sound, but remarkably beautiful and elegant. Its distinct grains provide an exotic and unique pattern. It is also extremely durable. It is up to 34% harder than red oak and up to 15% harder than maple.

Samantha says, “It’s a light-weight yet durable block that is as eco-friendly as it is beautiful.”

Silk Eye Pillow and Travel Practice Rug reviewed on True Yoga

Our friend Leanne at True Yoga reviewed our Silk Sari Pattern Eye Pillow and Mysore Travel Practice Rug, and had wonderful things to say about both!

Filled with flax seeds and dried lavender, our soft and cooling eye pillows work as a mood tonic, antidepressant, headache remedy and detoxifier. The shape of the pillow contours to your face adding gentle pressure and blocking out light, relieving tension and calming active muscles around the eyes. Leanne wrote, “OMG…I love the Barefoot Yoga Silk Eye Pillow…it is fabulous.  Hands down the best eye pillow I have ever tried.  First of all, it’s beautiful and made with 100% silk… And, the scent is incredible…just the right essence of lavender to relax and de-stress you.”

Pick of the Week: Mysore Practice Rug

Jessica’s Pick of the Week is the Mysore Practice Rug. While originally used as Ashtanga yoga rugs in India, they are also excellent for Bikram or Vinyasa styles.

Jessica says, “It is great for studio use as well as home practice.  Traditionally used for a heated, sweaty practice – the mysore rug is very versatile.  I really enjoy using it for my restorative practice as the rug creates a softer, more welcoming surface than simply a mat itself.”
