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.

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.”

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.”

Mindful Giveaway: Barefoot Yoga Gift Pack

We’re happy to partner with Elephant Journal for our giveaway of a Yoga Gift Pack, featuring some of our most popular signature products. Perfect for a thoughtful gift, or for treating yourself, the Yoga Gift Pack will include:

Barefoot Hybrid Eco Mat - Spring GreenBarefoot Hybrid Eco Mat: Our signature Hybrid mats combine the best of eco-friendly and traditional mats. They are better for the environment and your health than traditional PVC mats with long lasting performance. The mesh scrim (the “skeleton” of the mat) is made from 100% recycled polyester, which contributes to its longevity and strength.

Mysore Practice Rug: Barefoot Yoga’s Original Mysore Practice Rugs have been traditionally used for Mysore style Astanga practice in India and are also excellent for any athletic or sweat-producing yoga practice like Bikram or Vinyasa styles. These decorative and tightly woven cotton rugs have been around for centuries and are considered to be the first mats ever used for yoga practice in India. Mysore rugs are one of the more eco-friendly yoga mats available as they are completely biodegradable and PVC free.

Bamboo Yoga BlocksPair of Bamboo Yoga Blocks: Our Bamboo Practice Blocks are beautifully unique. They are just as stable and functional as wood, but extremely light weight and much more eco-friendly. Made hollow, but every bit as durable as solid wood. Treat yourself to this luxuriously smooth prop for your yoga practice.

One pair of Yoga Pants.

To enter to win our Yoga Gift Pack, please send an email with the subject “Elephant Journal Giveaway” to info@barefootyoga.com, and include your preferred size of Yoga Pants in your email. Our winner will be drawn on Tuesday, November 20th.
