Yoga is more than a way to unwind and become aware of yourself in mind, body and soul. It’s a lifestyle and however you chose to practice it’s sure to heighten your experience especially with the products used. All of us here at Yoga Lifestyles are obsessed with eco-friendly products because we’re naturally aware of the environment and the alignment of peace that it brings. So we’ve come up with a guide of what we think are some really cool eco-friendly gifts.
Whether you are new or an advanced yogi the yoga wheel will hold purpose to your practice in helping to support you in the most challenging positions like back bends, foerarm stands, to providing a deeper stretch in the front side of body while enhancing core strength and balance in other poses. The best yoga wheel in our opinion is this one from Zura. It’s antimicrobial and made from durable recycled materials. It also has a nontoxic foam padding for better support and comfort in longer poses and massaging points to stimulate acupressure points in the body.
Super Absorbent Yoga Towel
A yoga class can have you working up a sweat and sometimes your mat becomes a slippery slope but an absorbent yoga towel like this one from Zen Active helps create traction between you and the mat to provide stability and absorb any sweat.

BPA-Free Water Bottle
During yoga, you want to stay hydrated which is why a bottle comes in handy. However, sometimes you take a sip and notice that the beverage is either not cold or hot as you intend and that is not appealing. If you want an environmental BPA-free water bottle that keeps your beverage both cold or hot we suggest this stainless steel water bottle that’s built to withstand the elements and your practice!

This naturally antibacterial yoga block by ZURA is made from all-natural renewable cork. It won’t collapse on you like traditional foam, yet is cushioned enough for restorative poses.
