“In honor of the warmth and brightness that is coming, and thanks to the awesome crew at Barefoot Yoga, I give you my latest giveaway. To celebrate the desire to open our windows and bust our asanas on the green grass, in cahoots with Barefoot Yoga (a totally perfect name for a company, right?), I am giving away a Masala Mysore Practice Rug. These rugs absorb sweat and water, and actually work best when damp, to provide great traction and stretch to help hold a pose. So April showers will not deter you from flowing in the flowers! They are great on their own or paired with a mat.”
The Masala rug features multi-colored stripes in beautiful earth tones, with Indian details woven throughout the rug.
We’ve partnered with Nancy at Flying Yogini to offer a giveaway of our colorful and authentic Masala yoga rug. The giveaway runs through March 31st at 6:00 a.m. EST, and the winner (selected at random) will be announced on the Flying Yogini website, as well as on their Facebook and Twitter.
Visit Flying Yogini for details about how to enter the contest, and check out www.barefootyoga.com to browse and buy our yoga practice rugs, available in a wide variety of colors and patterns!

While traditionally used as Ashtanga yoga rugs in India, our practice rugs also work wonderfully for any athletic or sweat-producing yoga practices, such as Bikram and Vinyasa.
Jonathan of Yoga for Men writes, “I’ve been using the Rajasthan rug for about a week now and I’m definitely liking it. I’ll post the review later, but for now you can enter the raffle filling out the form. I’ll pick one winner at random and the rug will be on its way.”

Our Natural Eco-Friendly Yoga Mat is made from Jute and PER (Polymer Environmental Resin). The natural jute fibers in this mat offer the strength of conventional mats, yet are biodegradable. This mat’s unique look and feel are created by meshing jute fibers with patented PER, which is phthalate-free and safer for workers during manufacturing. The result is a mat that looks distinctive and lets you feel better about your ecological footprint — yet doesn’t compromise on the grippy, cushiony texture you count on for your best yoga positions.
Natural Jute and PER Eco-Friendly Yoga Mat
Our customers love them for all types of practice, but especially love to use them as hot yoga mats.
One reviewer says, “I love this yoga mat. You don’t get as much slippage, even in a heated yoga class. I would certainly purchase another of these mats when the time comes. Love the fact that it’s eco-friendly too.”
Another satisfied yogi says, “Excellent choice for a yoga mat. No toxic smells emanating from this mat and provides a secure hold to the floor during my Heated Power Yoga Class. Great price.”
