Ho ho ho, it’s that time of year! Office parties, the Nutcracker ballet, houses covered in lights, family favourite movies and the impending arrival of Santa are just a few things that represent December for a lot of us in the world. Are you trying to find the perfect gift for the Yoga lover in your life? Here are a few options to get you started. I tried to choose a variety of props that are must-haves for beginners. Here are my top 5:
#5. REEHUT Foam Yoga Block This Yoga block is light weight, moisture-proof and odour-resistant. Every Yogi needs a block or two at home. It assists in deepening a pose, it offers stability and helps practitioners find length in a pose.
#4. Ozaiic Yoga Socks These are a must have! I love, love, love Yoga socks. I’m one of those cold hands and feet type of people 365 days a year, so I depend on having a good quality pair of Yoga socks. These socks are great for a Yoga class, a barre class or even to wear around on cold, hardwood floors.
#3. BalanceFrom Yoga Mat Don’t scroll past this gift option! Yoga mats are everywhere these days in all kinds of colours with cool, zen-like motifs. I’m going back to the basics on this gift idea because this mat is practical. It’s easy on the knees and feet because it is extra thick. It doesn’t matter if you’re 21 or 61, there are certain poses that really grind on the knees. Your favourite Yogi’s knees will thank you for this gift.
#2.REEHUT Yoga Strap Beginning Yogis will need a strap. Even Yogis who have practised for decades need a sturdy strap. Straps help our bodies move into poses with ease and grace. They also help us learn a new pose because it modifies the full expression of the pose into something a little easier to attain as we are starting out.
#1. A Yoga session with me! You can buy your loved one a single private session, or five to ten sessions that will be tailored to meet his or her needs. If your beloved Yogi is a beginner, we can start with the basics of posture and alignment as well as the language so that he or she feels confident when walking into a studio class. Experienced Yogis may want a session that focuses on a particular body part such as the hips or shoulders. One, 60-minute session is $75AUD. The five-session offer is $350AUD and the ten-session offer is $700AUD. Please contact me if you’d like to book.
