Now in its 8th year, National Yoga Month promotes healthy living through the practice of yoga. Among its many benefits, yoga has been shown to reduce stress, improve cardiovascular health, and ease back pain. The Department of Health and Human Services recognized yoga’s positive influence on health and created National Yoga Month in 2008 to raise awareness.
This month-long celebration of yoga includes a number of events nationwide, as well as free classes for new students offered by hundreds of yoga studios. If you’re new to yoga or just looking to update and upgrade your yoga equipment, we have a number of suggestions for yoga essentials for your practice!
Our signature Hybrid mats offer great performance and eco-friendly material at a low price that makes this mat perfect for beginners and experienced yogis alike. With our wide range of colors, you’re sure to find a mat that you’ll love!
These traditional rugs are hand-woven in India, in the authentic style of the first mats ever used for yoga practice. They rest nicely over any mat and add cushion and traction while absorbing moisture.
Made from the Shisham tree, sometimes called Indian Rosewood, these sustainable hardwood blocks will add support and length to your poses. They’re hollow for easy transport to the yoga studio without sacrificing stability and strength.
Sivasana can be one of the best – and sometimes most challenging – parts of your practice. Our silk eye pillows make relaxation and reflection easier by quieting your mind with the soothing scent of real dried lavender flowers. The gentle weight of the pillow on your eyes will help you to get the most out of those final minutes of your practice.
