We Love Priya Prashad!

This week’s yogi highlight (our 22nd!) is Priya Prashad. I met Priya at a Bridal expo last year where our donut mat caught her eye. How lucky for me that our Donut Worry Be Happy yoga mat is such a great conversation starter! Priya is kind, breathtakingly beautiful, and her thoughtful and sweet disposition radiate from her 1000-watt smile. We went to a yoga class together a few weeks ago and it was such an amazing gift to be able to spend time with her! She picked the class and it was a hybrid yoga/cardio experience. I can’t remember if...

Top 10: Poses for Scorpios

This lunar month we’re all about the Zodiac symbol Scorpio (October 23–November 21)! Scorpios are instinctive, loyal, and operate most often with a gut feeling. Scorpios are honest, straightforward, bold, and fearless. (If this sounds like you — or someone you know! — check out our Scorpio yoga mat!) The poses below ignite that Scorpio energy and demonstrate their wisdom and strength. Even if you’re not a Scorpio, however, these poses can still challenge you and help you dissipate some of that energy when you’re feeling stressed or angsty or unfocused. We’ve still got a full week left of the Month of...

Design Highlight: Moon Mats

This week we’re highlighting a whole passel of designs. A couple of weeks ago we were looking through our back catalog of yoga mat designs and noticed just how MANY of them featured or were named for the moon.

As a result, all of the designs we’re highlighting this week are associated with the...

We Love Lisa Martin!

This week’s yogi highlight (our 21st!) is Lisa Martin. Lisa is the kind of person you just can’t WAIT to talk to — she is optimism, joy, and effervescence all rolled into one tiny little package. She is a talented artist, a passionate lover of nature, and a person dedicated to sharing the wonders and beauty of her surroundings. One look at her artwork and you will be transported — her artwork is cathartic in the best sense of the word. Getting to know her better through our collaboration has been a wonderful gift — it is my pleasure to shine a little...

Top 10: Yoga Poses for Desk Jobs

Have you heard that sitting is the new smoking? Not nearly as stinky yet thought to be the new big concern in overall health. According to the Washington Post, American adults sit an average of 6-½ hours a day. For many of us, our work life centers around computers and we tend to stay in the same position far longer than we should. If you feel your shoulders rounding, heaviness in your head, pressure in your lower back, or a general feeling of rounded-down and hunched forward try these ten poses. Some may be difficult to do in the middle...
