Their moisture-wicking, silky smooth (yet sturdy) fabric is perfect for any workout you can imagine – from stand-up paddle board yoga to a quick jog – while the fun prints make them ideal for everything from errand running to evening yoga class wear.

Take a look at the beautiful prints just-in below, along with our favorite BFY props to pair them with!


The striking Dragonfly pattern evokes a nature inspired design that looks stunning with the new Emerald green color of our 1/6” Hybrid Mat and a beautiful charcoal grey Silk Eye Pillow! Try throwing these on for a relaxing Saturday morning practice for the perfect start to your weekend.




This pattern is like a jolt of caffeine (and we mean that in a good way)!

Try pairing the Holi print leggings with our bright pink Mandala Embroidered Zafu and a vibrant purple Practice Strap on a day when you’re feeling loud and confident for a look that’s bright and beautiful!

We especially love the color palette above for a glowga class or going out to a weekend yoga festival.



Earthy and rich are the words that come to mind with the super cute India pattern leggings – particularly when paired with this plum colored Cotton Jacquard Mat Bag and a set of beautiful Indian Rosewood Blocks.

This pattern is very versatile and easy to wear for any occasion – whether you’re going from the gym out to lunch, or just lounging at home!



This abstract, soft pattern evokes a unique and almost ethereal feel. These are perfect for an outdoor class spent doing poses on your favorite practice rug, or worn during a morning hike.

Yoga Trends: Trill Yoga


Trill Yoga founder Claire Fountain practicing at the entrance of a subway station in NYC.

Are you a fan of yoga? (We can take a wild guess on that one!) What about body positivity and self love? If one or (hopefully) all of these speak to you, you may want to give trill yoga a try!

It’s the newest trend on our yoga radar, and we can’t help but love the idea: practicing any type of yoga anywhere, as long as it’s not in a conventional setting. Think sidewalk, beach, lounge chair, or even subway station.

Founded by yogi Claire Fountain, the whole idea of trill yoga is about being true and real (“trill”) to yourself, and free in that truth. Trill yoga is not only the freedom to practice wherever you like, but also the freedom to be true to yourself in all of your awesome uniqueness – wearing whatever you like, and looking however you like, no matter your body’s shape, size, or tone.

Trill yoga turns a yogi or yogini’s practice into an act of revolution – a revolution of self love (no matter how you look) and the practice of yoga (no matter where you are).

For all of your yoga prop needs – whether you’re practicing on top of your car or at your local studio – come visit us today at Barefootyoga.com!

Yoga Revival – Week 7: Empty Warehouse Yoga




When Friday of week 7 of my “Yoga Revival” came around, I knew I had some free time after work, so planned to do my yoga then. It was another beautiful Seattle summer day, and the great outdoors beckoned me to do it outside. But, in the name of saving time (for a little kayaking), I decided to do my yoga in the warehouse here at Barefoot Yoga HQ after everyone left for the weekend.

I blasted some random yoga music from my computer, and rolled out my Barefoot Performance Grip mat – which has been getting grippier with age (mats really do take some time to break in). I rolled around on a tennis ball for a while, and did some hamstring stretches lying on my back – using a strap. This has become my standard warm-up.

Before getting too comfortable, I jumped up and began my sun salutations. I do these pretty similarly each time, extending the traditional salutations in ways I’ve learned over the years from various teachers, and my own experimentation – that help me to get deeper in each pose.

I am sometimes surprised when my 30 minute watch alarm goes off, and I am only just finishing my sun salutations. It’s a good sign when this happens, and an even better sign when I don’t hear the alarm, because I am so deeply immersed in the practice and the sound of my breathing. I love this about asana practice. It is easy to get so involved in the movement and breathing, that you lose yourself – which is to say you find yourself – completely immersed in the moment. These ancient yoga poses draw us into this kind of meditation, where the body and mind merge as one. There is effort, but there is also an effortless quality to this convergence. Sometimes it just happens…naturally.

Sitting meditation, on the other hand, does not provide movement to assist the mind into such a zone. Over the past 7 weeks since committing to a virtually daily practice, I have done many 30 minute sitting meditations – primarily because I had come to the end of the day without getting my yoga in, and was too full of food to do an asana practice.

There have been moments during these sitting meditations when I was in “the zone” – thinking of nothing, deeply immersed in the sound of my own breathing, very still. But I hazard to guess there have been more moments when I was squirming, my mind wandering, and wondering how long until my alarm would go off, and how was I going to make it.

On this particular afternoon, my alarm went off sooner than expected. So I reset it, and kept going. And I ended with a 10 minute sitting meditation. The random yoga music from my computer happened to have become a buoyantly sung version of the Tibetan incantation – Om Mani Padme Hum – one I had learned many years earlier when hiking the Annapurna trail in Nepal, and reading The Snow Leopard.  

Alone in the warehouse, I sang that chant with the kind of abandon I don’t believe I could have done in a class full of strangers. I was thoroughly immersed in it, “Om Mani Padme Hum” echoing through the warehouse. Those 10 minutes of sitting meditation went by in a flash. I sealed the deal with sivasana, and floated onwards from my warehouse refuge into the sunny Seattle evening – humming peacefully.
