Yoga Mat

For any yoga lover looking to upgrade their mat, I would highly suggest a Jade Yoga mat. This is the mat I have and use daily. The stickiness of the mat makes it great for people who tend to slide in poses like downward dog. Buy it here.

Beginner’s Yoga Kit

If you know someone that would like to try out yoga, this yoga kit would be perfect for them. It gives them everything they need to start out; a mat, two blocks, a yoga strap, some towels, and a carrying case. If they end up loving yoga they will probably want to upgrade their mat at some point. I love that this comes with an 8-foot strap. Many kits come with a shorter strap and you will want an 8-foot strap if you get serious about your yoga practice.  Buy it here.

Ayurvedic Cookbook

Ayurveda is yoga’s sister. If someone in your life loves yoga, chances are they also love living a healthy lifestyle. If so, this book would be perfect for them. The first third of the book is an introduction to Ayurveda and how to apply the principles to your daily life. The rest of the book is a modern cookbook to find and cook meals that will give you vibrant health using Ayurvedic principles. I was introduced to this book at my yoga teacher training and bought it immediately. It is quickly becoming a staple in my kitchen. Buy it here.

Yoga Blanket

I did yoga for quite awhile before I got a yoga blanket. I wish I would have gotten one sooner. I love using it under my knees to protect them in certain poses, covering myself with it during savasana, and using it as a prop for restorative yoga poses. This is the one I have and love. I have it in black, but there are a ton of color options to choose from. Buy it here.

Yoga Cards for Kids

If your yoga lover has kids, this would be a perfect gift for them. I use these yoga cards with my second-grade students and they love it. If I forget to use them for a couple of days a student will always ask me when we get to do it next. Buy it here.
