Gifts for yoga lovers from Aurorae Yoga
By Carla Snuggs
If you've been following me on my Instagram and Twitter feed, you know that I am starting to get back into my yoga and meditation practice. Yoga and meditation are great ways to practice self-care for your mind, body and spirit.
With Valentine's Day approaching, I was thinking about wellness gifts I'd LOVE to give or receive, as wellness gifts are a bit more creative than chocolates and jewelry. If you or someone you care for loves yoga, why not create a yoga gift bag or yoga gift basket, filled with yoga accessories? Give the gift of wellness!
I recently had the honor of trying out some of the fabulous products by Aurorae. The brand is affordable, comfortable and eco-friendly! Best of all, Aurorae is a family-owned business and I love supporting small and local businesses. I had the honor of tying out Aurorae's Impressions Yoga Matt, Pledge Candle and Yoga Mat Flip Flops.
The Impressions Yoga Mat is now my new favorite yoga mat. This non-slip mat is the perfect thickness and length for me (It's 72 inches and I'm 5' 7”). This is one of the most comfortable mats I’ve ever used. More on Aurorae's Yoga Mats: They are PER, Polymer Environmental Resin; PER is an eco friendly patented material made from a new non toxic resin which is free of rubber, silicone, phthalates and latex; Odor Free and does not emit any toxic chemicals or gases.
I am candle-obsessed and I always light a soy candle every morning during my meditation to focus on a specific intent. Aurorae's Pledge Candles are made from 100% soy wax and are nontoxic They're scented with essential oils and natural fragrances and they are perfect for meditation and aromatherapy. My favorite is the lavender, harmony candle.
The Yoga Mat Flip Flops are ridiculously comfortable. Made from from real EVA Foam yoga mats and with beautiful vegan leather straps, they feel like you're walking on air and at the same time they don't flip or flop. They stay snug on my feet during all activities.
