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.

Yoga Gift of the Week: Beeswax Aromatherapy Candles

With the holiday season fast approaching, Barefoot Yoga has great gift ideas for the yogi in your life, which we’ll be featuring weekly leading up to the holidays.

Grace’s pick for Yoga Gift of the Week is our Beeswax Aromatherapy Candles: “I love burning candles during the colder months. It makes the season warmer and cozier! The Big Dipper Waxworks beeswax candles are an unusual blend of aromatherapy oils that also have therapeutic properties. They burn cleanly which is important to me and lasts long too. I splurge for the glass candle holder or use the travel tins for stocking stuffers. Everyone whom I’ve given these candles to have raved about it.”

Pick of the Week: Bamboo Yoga Blocks

Samantha’s Pick of the Week is our Bamboo Yoga Blocks. Bamboo protects the environment and the air that we breathe. It is the fastest growing canopy for the regreening of degraded lands, and it releases more oxygen than trees. Bamboo is not only ecologically sound, but remarkably beautiful and elegant. Its distinct grains provide an exotic and unique pattern. It is also extremely durable. It is up to 34% harder than red oak and up to 15% harder than maple.

Samantha says, “It’s a light-weight yet durable block that is as eco-friendly as it is beautiful.”

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.”

Pick of the Week: Barefoot Yoga Solid Zafu Meditation Cushion

Lauren’s Pick of the Week is Barefoot Yoga’s own Solid Zafu Meditation Cushion. Our round zafu cushion is made from exceptionally soft 100% cotton twill fabric and filled with buckwheat hulls. The zafu, often thought of as only a yoga cushion or meditation cushion, has many other uses.

Lauren says, “I absolutely love the Solid Zafus for meditation, yoga, and just to have around for extra floor seating when guests come over! They provide a much firmer and more comfortable sitting surface than a pillow or folded blanket. You can really feel your posture getting better as soon as you sit down.”

Barefoot Yoga Eye Pillow and OMgirl reviewed at The Grommom Blog

Monica at The Grommom recently reviewed our OMgirl Paradise Skirt and Barefoot Yoga Silk Sari Eye Pillow, and she had great things to say about both!

Silk Sari Eye Pillow - Raipur

She writes, “I think you know by now that I am a big fan of Barefoot Yoga! These guys sell the kind of clothes that I love to live in:  Super cute, and especially comfortable! So, I was super excited when Barefoot Yoga sent me an Om Girl ‘Paradise’ Skirt to review!  This is the kind of skirt that you can wear in SO many ways–dressed up, or casual!”

About our Raipur Silk Eye Pillow, she said, “Oh my goodness–have you ever tried one of these?  The day it arrived, I had a killer headache.  So, as soon as I opened the box, I literally laid right down and put the eye pillow over my eyes.  Needless to say, I fell into a deep sleep–even with a house full of boys running around me!”
