Best products for a better yoga practice

It all begins the moment we roll out the mat, but hold the pose—not every practice leaves you feeling blissful and ready to take on the world. So what makes one practice feel like a path to enlightenment, and another a struggle to get through? Maybe it isn’t so much about the teacher, the studio or you, but about the products we can use to get the most out of a yoga session. Here are some great items to keep the yoga in the Yogi and Yogini.

  • Yoga Mat – It really does all begin the moment you roll out your mat finding the right mat for me was what set me up for the best practices I can think of. The Original Eco Yoga Mat is simply one of the best and most earth-conscious yoga mats available today, it even feels like you are walking barefoot on earth. There are no chemical additives used and its rubber underside grips the floor while the jute offers superb traction even in a heavy sweat. It is a highly durable, tactile, and provides a pleasant surface to practice on.

  • Yoga Towels – Sometimes yoga practice can get a little sweaty and slippery, the Skidless Yoga Towel is designed specifically for yoga practice to prevent slipping and is especially nice and compact for travel. When the room heats up and your Vinyasa is in full flow, lay this towel from over your mat to keep yourself from slipping.

  • Yoga Socks – And other times when a towel is just not enough or you cant seem to find a yoga towel around, these functional and durable slip-free yoga socks will keep your feet covered and comfortable, they are quite travel friendly as well since you are able to just throw them on quickly. The silicone dots on the sole stabilize and grip your yoga mat, floor or any surface during your practice! They’re perfect for yoga, Pilates and Barre.

  • Yoga Clothing – My best yoga experience also started when I changed my regular sports bra, t-shirt and leggings to nicely fitted and breathable yoga inspired clothing. Feel comfortable and current in the latest collection by OMgirl their soft, breathable blend of organic cotton and lycra make these one of best yoga clothing out there! – A must-have for the avid yogi.

  • Yoga Blocks – When you need that extra support for a deeper and stronger practice think about using Yoga Blocks, yoga blocks provide the stability needed for optimal alignment, deeper poses and increased strength. These eco-friendly foam blocks add stability and length to your postures.

Barefoot Yoga’s Fall Favorites!

With orange undertones and a flourish of green that makes you think of the changing leaves outside, you’ll understand why the Padmini Lotus Eye Pillow was designed with Autumn in mind. Made with beautiful Indian Silk, the Sari fabric we use has a richness to it that feels so nice on the skin.

With temperatures changing so much between the days and the evening, it is nice to have a piece that adjusts throughout the day. You can cinch it up close as it gets cold, or you can let it hang down in an open robe-like jacket with layers beneath.  Check out our full selection of Sweaters and Wraps to keep you warm as the seasons change.

As the days grow shorter we find the temperature beginning to drop. Curl up for the cold weather with a cozy blanket in one of many vibrant colors. These work great as a yoga prop or an extra blanket to have around the house or car on a cold day.

Nothing says fall is here like the color of this mat! It will make you think of pumpkins, spices, and sipping coffee on a crisp morning. This is the mat to kickstart you back into practice as you shed the lazy habits of summer.

Our Silk Zafus are made from authentic Indian Sari Fabrics. With Fall being a time to nest back into the home, the luxury of these Zafus will help keep your cabin fever at bay. They offer a wonderful way to enhance your meditation, or to simply provide a seat closer to the ground.
