New Hybrid Nature Mats covered by the Seattle P-I

Our own local Seattle P-I recently covered the release of our new Barefoot Hybrid Nature Mats on their website.

“Just in time for Earth Day, Barefoot Yoga Company has added a new product line to their wide selection of eco-friendly yoga mats, called the Barefoot Yoga Hybrid Nature Mat. This new mat is a variation on their popular Hybrid Eco Mats, which are made without the toxic phthalates or heavy metals found in traditional PVC yoga mats, but still offer the longevity, durability and traction of a traditional mat.”

Announcing the Winner of the
Barefoot Yoga & PrAna Giveaway

Barefoot Yoga & prAna Giveaway

We’re excited to announce the winner of the Barefoot Yoga and PrAna Giveaway, celebrating inspiring yoga teachers!

And the winner is:
Robyn L and her inspirational yoga teacher Barb!

Robyn says about Barb: “She was the first teacher I had who was totally accepting of everyone who walked in her class, and she was far from my first teacher ever.

Thanks for sharing this Robyn and for entering the contest.  We will be in touch by email to explain how you can redeem any one PrAna item of your choice for both you and your teacher.

We received many other wonderful answers to the question, “How has your yoga teacher inspired you?”

  • Riki: “She has inspired me to to eat cleaner.  From taking her classes and going on her retreat I have learned how to help stay calm during a stress inducing situation.
  • Savanna: “My teacher has inspired me to push safely beyond the limits I’ve placed on myself. Inspired me to live my life freely and bring that into my practice. Love of truth, light, and of peace <3
  • Barb: “She’s taught me that no matter what, when I practice yoga, everything will be okay, even at least for that hour and 15 minutes.
  • Aimee: “She always put an emphasis on letting go and having fun in the poses, and not trying so hard to get them perfectly right. I always thought it applied well to life, and to yoga.
  • Cynthia: “Hilarie inspires me daily through her dedication to the practice, deep and intuitive knowledge and wisdom, and the loving kindness she shows to each of her students.  She is a yogi and guru, and she has helped transform my life.

There are so many inspiring, brave, and kind yoga instructors out there, and we thank you for sharing your experiences with us!

Masala Mysore Rug Giveaway at The Flying Yogini

“In honor of the warmth and brightness that is coming, and thanks to the awesome crew at Barefoot Yoga, I give you my latest giveaway.  To celebrate the desire to open our windows and bust our asanas on the green grass, in cahoots with Barefoot Yoga (a totally perfect name for a company, right?), I am giving away a Masala Mysore Practice Rug. These rugs absorb sweat and water, and actually work best when damp, to provide great traction and stretch to help hold a pose.  So April showers will not deter you from flowing in the flowers! They are great on their own or paired with a mat.”

Mysore Practice Rug - Masala

The Masala rug features multi-colored stripes in beautiful earth tones, with Indian details woven throughout the rug.

We’ve partnered with Nancy at Flying Yogini to offer a giveaway of our colorful and authentic Masala yoga rug. The giveaway runs through March 31st at 6:00 a.m. EST, and the winner (selected at random) will be announced on the Flying Yogini website, as well as on their Facebook and Twitter.

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.”
