Barefoot Yoga Review and Giveaway

I try not to miss a day when it comes to my ‘me moments.’ I usually pick yoga or a long walk as my way to unwind and shake off the day. Dragging out my yoga mat everyday has certainly worn it ragged and of course the occasional dog that likes to run in and join me doesn’t help.

I know where you can go for one stop shopping when your yoga mat gets a bit worse for the wear, you need a fabulous new outfit, or any number of other yoga inspired accessories - Barefoot Yoga. They have it all and they have high quality items as reasonable prices.

To replace my yoga mat I picked the Barefoot Hybrid Eco Mat. First I just love that it is made in more eco conscious way than most yoga mats. The mesh scrim is made from 100% sustainable recycled polyester.  It has no phthalates or heavy metals and the way they make them is completely non-toxic and latex free!

Now that you know how it’s made it will make you feel good in spirit, I want to let you know it will also feel good to hands and feet! When you step onto your beautiful new mat you will notice it feels great under your feet and the surface prevented me for having any slips. They come in a lovely array of colors to choose from and two thicknesses for your comfort.

While you are browsing Barefoot Yoga take a look at the silk eye pillows. I don’t often get too much time to just lay down and relax and I had no idea just how much it could relax me until I was trying out my silk eye pillow. You can bet I will be adding this to my day at least every other day from now on.

These are 100% silk, soft, cooling pillows, which are filled with flax and lavender. The way the pillow contours to your eyes and scent that gently emanates relaxed me totally and completely. They come with slip covers in either solid colors, like mine, or sari designs. I love that they are refillable and can be washed by hand when need be.

I have some great news too! Barefoot Yoga has generously offered one lucky reader the chance to win their own silk eye pillow! This giveaway is open to US residents 18 and older.
