Rajasthan Yoga Practice Rug reviewed on Yoga for Men

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.”

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.

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.”
