Hybrid Eco Yoga Mat and Silk Eye Pillow reviewed on My Empty Nest

Diana at My Empty Nest recently had a chance to try out a Barefoot Hybrid Eco Mat and a lavender scented Silk Eye Pillow, and reviewed them on her blog.

She wrote about our Hybrid Eco Mat, “When you step onto your beautiful new mat you will notice it feels great under your feet and the surface prevented me for having any slips. They come in a lovely array of colors to choose from and two thicknesses for your comfort.”

After she used our Silk Eye Pillow, she said, “The way the pillow contours to your eyes and scent that gently emanates relaxed me totally and completely. They come with slip covers in either solid colors, like mine, or sari designs.”

Yoga Practice Rug reviewed on Bliss blog

Kristen at the Bliss blog recently had a chance to try out our Hatha Practice Rug. In her review, she says: “It was really nice to have a bigger rug so my entire body fit on it and I didn’t have to move around!”

She also mentioned, “I didn’t like the thinner aspect, since I’m kind of a pansy.” At Barefoot Yoga, we often recommend putting our Mysore Practice Rugs over any yoga mat, both for the extra cushion, and to help with traction on smooth floors.

Pick of the Week: Grace’s Golden Milk Recipe

Grace’s Pick of the Week is her recipe for Golden Milk: “With the end of the holidays and the official start of winter, I like to make Golden Milk. It’s a soothing night-time drink that is great for lubricating the joints. Turmeric, one of the ingredients, is known for its antibiotic and healing properties. Hope this helps with your practice!”


  • 1/8 tsp Turmeric
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 8 oz Milk (or lactose-free milk in my case :) )
  • 2 Tbsp Almond Oil
  • Honey or Maple Syrup to taste (I prefer honey as it helps with seasonal allergies)


  • Place water and turmeric in a small sauce pan and bring to a boil, stirring to a paste for 8 minutes.
  • Place milk and almond oil in a separate sauce pan and heat until the milk just comes to a boil, then remove from heat.
  • Add the turmeric paste to the milk and stir until the milk becomes completely yellow.
  • Add honey or maple syrup to taste.
  • Drink Warm.

Yoga Journal’s ‘Yogi’s Christmas List’ features Barefoot Yoga Mysore Practice Rugs

Yoga JournalBarefoot Yoga’s Mysore Travel Practice Rugs were highlighted in Yoga Journal’s “A Yogi’s Christmas List“, as a great gift for yourself or a friend.

Yoga Journal’s editor Kelle writes, “I often travel with a yoga mat, and while I’m always happy I have it when I need it, it’s a pain to carry. This practice rug can fold it up into your luggage! If you haven’t practiced on a cotton rug, you’d be surprised by the difference. It makes me feel more grounded and connected to the physicality of my practice.”

Celebrate Woman Today also interviewed our founder and CEO Kelly about the ways that yoga can help women in their daily lives.

Take time to breathe.” Read the rest of the interview here, and visit www.barefootyoga.com for all of your holiday yoga gifts!

Silk Eye Pillow and Henna Practice Rug reviewed on HeyMonicaB

Blogger and Ayurvedic Sciences expert Monica recently reviewed our Barefoot Yoga Silk Solid Eye Pillow and Henna Practice Rug on her wonderful website, HeyMonicaB!

Product Review - HeyMonicaB

She says about our Henna Practice Rug, “I have to admit, carrying it around as my “yoga blankie” is a comfort and…I absolutely love the smell. It smells like earth. Rooted. Grounded. It’s like an added sensory experience while surrendering to child’s pose and becoming one with the earth.”

Monica also raves about our Silk Eye Pillow, ”This super soft flax and lavender pillow is a little piece of heaven. It’s SO soft! It feels delicate yet weighted, which is perfect for calming tired computer-laded eyeballs at the end of the day… If there are any ladies on your gift-list who like a little luxurious pampering, this is probably not something they would buy for themselves.”
