Our friends at Second Wind Yoga studio in Agawam, Massachusetts offer step by step yoga instruction and small class sizes, perfect for new yogis. To get an idea of their accessible instruction style, they offer a free video for yoga beginners, accompanied by gentle Native American Flute music.
We were excited to spot one of our own Mysore Practice Rugs being used in the video!

What are the Best Products for Ashtanga Yoga?
Do you practice Ashtanga or thinking about trying? It’s a vigorous practice that involves a set series of poses focused on realigning the spine, as well as building strength, flexibility, and stamina.
Traditional Ashtanga does not require many props, but it is a good idea to have a durable mat with open-cell construction to help absorb sweat, a rug to place over the mat, and light-weight, breathable clothing for easy movement and comfort.
“Take Practice and All is coming…”
~Sri Pattabhi Jois
Here’s what we recommend for Ashtanga:
|NEW HYBRID MATS
Pair any yoga mat with the Mysore Practice Rug and create the ideal surface for Ashtanga practice.
|MYSORE PRACTICE RUGS
The original Yoga Mat from India
Keep your hair out of your eyes when doing jump backs with these awesome headbands.
|OMGIRL PRACTICE BRA & SHORTS IN ORGANIC COTTON
Ashtanga is a sweat producing practice, so dress lightly and bare skin!
|PRANA MEN’S MOMENTUM SHORTS
Stay comfortable, flexible and cool in these loose fitting, organic cotton shorts.
|100% SILK EYE PILLOWS
Take savasana after your practice with our soothing silk eye pillows.

“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.”
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.
Visit Flying Yogini for details about how to enter the contest, and check out www.barefootyoga.com to browse and buy our yoga practice rugs, available in a wide variety of colors and patterns!

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.”
