Barefoot in Boston: the Glamorous Life of a Yoga Mat (Barefoot Yoga Mat Review)

“Before Sandy, when Long Beach still had a boardwalk,  I received a purple yoga mat and lavender scented eye pillow from Barefoot Yoga.

The mat traveled with me to several different classes, visited studios in New York City and on Long Island. It survived post-Sandy construction. It was my Ashtanga,Vinyasa, and slow flow partner. Just when we were getting used to our newly re-finished floor (see picture), I rolled her up and took her to Boston.”

Rajasthan Yoga Practice Rug reviewed on Yoga for Men

Jonathan at Yoga for Men reviewed one of our Mysore Practice Rugs in the Rajasthan design, and he had wonderful, thoughtful things to say about it!

“I used the Rajasthan for numerous different styles of classes, from my own personal home restorative sessions, to moderate flows and power vinyasa in the studio.”

“I really like this rug and can see myself using it for some time to come. It’s built to last and the grip is exceptional. It smells, looks and feels very authentic, and it made me feel like a sadhu of old practicing in ancient India. There’s just something very grounding about connecting to more natural material during yoga.”
