Silk Eye Pillow and Travel Practice Rug reviewed on True Yoga

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.”

Pick of the Week: Mysore Practice Rug

Jessica’s Pick of the Week is the Mysore Practice Rug. While originally used as Ashtanga yoga rugs in India, they are also excellent for Bikram or Vinyasa styles.

Jessica says, “It is great for studio use as well as home practice.  Traditionally used for a heated, sweaty practice – the mysore rug is very versatile.  I really enjoy using it for my restorative practice as the rug creates a softer, more welcoming surface than simply a mat itself.”

Masala Practice Rug review on An Angel’s Kiss blog

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.”

Get ready for the Summer heat with a Mysore Practice Rug!

Goa Practice Rug

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!
