Rajasthan Practice Rug Giveaway at Yoga for Men

Barefoot Yoga has teamed up with the blog Yoga for Men to offer a giveaway of our Rajasthan Practice Rug for one lucky reader!

While traditionally used as Ashtanga yoga rugs in India, our practice rugs also work wonderfully for any athletic or sweat-producing yoga practices, such as Bikram and Vinyasa.

Jonathan of Yoga for Men writes, “I’ve been using the Rajasthan rug for about a week now and I’m definitely liking it. I’ll post the review later, but for now you can enter the raffle filling out the form. I’ll pick one winner at random and the rug will be on its way.”

Barefoot Yoga Mexican Blanket featured in Yoga Journal

Our Mexican Yoga Blankets were featured in the February issue of Yoga Journal, in their article about side body stretches.

We offer the highest quality Mexican Blankets made from “Regenerated Yarn” – a recycled blend of cotton and acrylics. Mexican Yoga Blankets may be the most versatile yoga prop. Two or more provide a stable but yielding surface for shoulder stands. Blankets can substitute for a bolster in restorative poses and pranayama practice, and give warmth under and over your body for final relaxation.

To view and purchase our Mexican Blankets, Eco Wool Blankets, and other essential yoga props, visit www.barefootyoga.com!

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!”

Ingredients:

  • 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)

Instructions:

  • 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.
