Barefoot Yoga’s Sari Eye Pillow in August Yoga Journal

Yoga Journal August 2014Barefoot Yoga’s Silk Sari Pattern Eye Pillow was photographed for Yoga Journal’s August feature about Ayurveda inspired yoga props for Summer!

Yoga Journal writes, “Because fire manifests as light and heat, pitta manages vision. Eyes can get dry and irritated from sun exposure. Covering them with a silk eye pillow filled with lavender (studies show the scent helps dial down anxiety and promote deep sleep) relaxes your hardworking eyes and allows you to focus on your breath.”

Barefoot Yoga’s Inspiring Teacher of the Month:
Farzaneh Noori

Farzaneh NooriOur teacher of the month for July is Farzaneh Noori, co-founder of Yoga House in Pasadena, California. She has been practicing and teaching yoga for over 20 years, and has studied with a number of influential yogis in the process, including Tias Little, Paul Grilley and Jill Miller. She focuses strongly on the healing properties of yoga, and some of her most popular classes include Prenatal Yoga and Therapeutic Yoga for Cancer.

Farzaneh began her Therapeutic Yoga for Cancer classes in 2012. After her own cancer diagnosis and treatment, she attributed her recovery in a large part to the practice of yoga, and wanted to share its healing benefits with others coping with the disease. The classes are offered free of charge as a service to the community, and over time attendance has blossomed from a few participants to 20 or 30 per class. According to Yoga House’s website, “Each class offers a synthesis of several natural healing modalities: restorative yoga; gentle yoga; breath work; meditation; and hands-on healing, all of which promote a state of deep relaxation which enhances the body’s ability to heal itself.”

Yoga House was co-founded by Farzaneh Noori and Bruce Schwartz in 1997 and they’re a valued long-time customer of Barefoot Yoga, offering our yoga mats, bags, eye pillows and more. To experience Farzaneh’s inspiring and healing classes for yourself, visit Yoga House in Pasadena!
