Barefoot Yoga products featured in Holiday 2012 Gift Guide from Celebrate Woman Today

Barefoot Yoga’s products were recently featured on the website Celebrate Woman Today in a holiday yoga gifts guide:

Celebrate Women Today’s editor Laura says, “The variety of products at Barefoot Yoga is amazing! Yoga mats and yoga mat bags. Yoga Props and Accessories. Yoga hemp clothing for grown-ups and children. Yoga books and media. This is just a small sampling of the variety of yoga-focused products that could be discovered there.”

“What differentiates Barefoot Yoga products is that all products are made to last. The integrity of the product is displayed through the quality of a stitching they use, embroidery, and a wild variety for every taste.”

Yoga Gifts from Barefoot Yoga

Celebrate Woman Today also interviewed our founder and CEO Kelly about the ways that yoga can help women in their daily lives. Kelly says, “Start a yoga practice or meditation practice slowly, without being goal-oriented. Start with 5 minutes a day, and see what evolves out of it. Take time to breathe.” Read the rest of the interview here, and visit www.barefootyoga.com for all of your holiday yoga gifts!

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.

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.”

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.”
