Grace’s Pick of the Week is our Indian Rosewood Yoga Blocks. “The Indian Rosewood block is made from the Shisham tree. It’s a sustainable hardwood that is readily available in India. It is prized for its luxurious looking dark heartwood. The varied grain and color makes each block unique. Its durability makes it a great prop for your practice.”
Yoga blocks add stability and length to your postures, and these Rosewood Blocks are lightweight and comfortably smooth to the touch. Indian Rosewood is very eco-friendly compared to other materials, because this species of tree grows very quickly, reaching up to 100 feet tall. Parts of the Shisham tree are used in Ayurvedic medicine to cure skin problems and other ailments.

This new mat is a variation on their popular Hybrid Eco Mats, which are made without the toxic phthalates or heavy metals found in traditional PVC yoga mats, but still offer the longevity, durability and traction of a traditional mat.”

We’re excited to announce the winner of the Barefoot Yoga and PrAna Giveaway, celebrating inspiring yoga teachers!
And the winner is:
Robyn L and her inspirational yoga teacher Barb!
Robyn says about Barb: “She was the first teacher I had who was totally accepting of everyone who walked in her class, and she was far from my first teacher ever.”
Thanks for sharing this Robyn and for entering the contest. We will be in touch by email to explain how you can redeem any one PrAna item of your choice for both you and your teacher.
We received many other wonderful answers to the question, “How has your yoga teacher inspired you?”
- Riki: “She has inspired me to to eat cleaner. From taking her classes and going on her retreat I have learned how to help stay calm during a stress inducing situation.“
- Savanna: “My teacher has inspired me to push safely beyond the limits I’ve placed on myself. Inspired me to live my life freely and bring that into my practice. Love of truth, light, and of peace <3“
- Barb: “She’s taught me that no matter what, when I practice yoga, everything will be okay, even at least for that hour and 15 minutes.“
- Aimee: “She always put an emphasis on letting go and having fun in the poses, and not trying so hard to get them perfectly right. I always thought it applied well to life, and to yoga.“
- Cynthia: “Hilarie inspires me daily through her dedication to the practice, deep and intuitive knowledge and wisdom, and the loving kindness she shows to each of her students. She is a yogi and guru, and she has helped transform my life.“
There are so many inspiring, brave, and kind yoga instructors out there, and we thank you for sharing your experiences with us!

“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!

Samantha says, “My pick of the week is the new Barefoot Hybrid Nature Mats! They come in both the standard 1/8” mat or thicker 1/4″ mat. The same durability and eco-friendly aspects of our Hybrid Eco mats, these mats come in a new beautiful wash pattern with color variations.”
All of our signature Hybrid yoga mats combine the best of environmental and traditional mats. They’re free of phthalates, heavy metals and latex, and their durable recycled polyester mesh scrim means that the mats stand up wonderfully to heavy use. Our new Hybrid Nature Mats are available in nature-inspired color blends, which combine two tones to create a beautiful marbled look.
