Our friend Leanne at True Yoga reviewed our Silk Sari Pattern Eye Pillow and Mysore Travel Practice Rug, and had wonderful things to say about both!
Filled with flax seeds and dried lavender, our soft and cooling eye pillows work as a mood tonic, antidepressant, headache remedy and detoxifier. The shape of the pillow contours to your face adding gentle pressure and blocking out light, relieving tension and calming active muscles around the eyes. Leanne wrote, “OMG…I love the Barefoot Yoga Silk Eye Pillow…it is fabulous. Hands down the best eye pillow I have ever tried. First of all, it’s beautiful and made with 100% silk… And, the scent is incredible…just the right essence of lavender to relax and de-stress you.”

Angel recently reviewed our Masala Practice Rug on her blog, An Angel’s Kiss.
Here’s what she had to say: “The rug itself is beautiful and earthy, multi-colored with stripes of rust, wine, grey, sage and black. It is 28″ wide x 74″ long x 1/8″ thick, the perfect size to practice on and is really easy to wash. You can wash it after each yoga session and always have a clean, hygienic rug to practice on. The price of this rug is quite reasonable. You can place it over a sticky mat if you are looking for more cushion. I like to use this rug while practicing outdoors. Then when I have finished I simply throw it in the wash on cold and hang it to dry.”

Goa Practice Rug
Sold out for several months and back in stock are our popular and versatile Mysore Practice Rugs . Traditionally used for Mysore style Astanga yoga practice in India, and also excellent for any athletic or sweat-producing yoga practice like Bikram or Vinyasa flow, 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.
The rugs rest nicely over any Yoga Mat and most floor surfaces, adding extra cushion for sitting postures and better traction and stability for standing postures. They’re also great for outdoor practice without a mat, so grab your Practice Rug and go outside to enjoy a beautiful day!

We recently came across a great posting on the Consumer Reports Health Blog about choosing eco-friendly mats for your yoga practice. The article may be from 2008, but it’s certainly still relevant and worth sharing!
The posting makes a good point about how eco-friendliness can range from mat to mat, as can the price, due to the cost of materials used. Some mats are certainly more eco-friendly than others, though all are considered better for the environment and your body than mats made from PVC.
At Barefoot Yoga Co., we strive to offer a wide array of possibilities, from the extremely environmentally friendly “Original Eco Yoga Mat” to mats made from TPE and PER. We also offer other alternatives, such as our Mysore Practice Rugs.
We encourage our customers to buy “green” whenever possible and to find a yoga mat that works for your practice. Feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 877-227-3366. We are happy to answer any questions about our products.
