Thanks to the Department of Health & Human Services, September is known as the official National Yoga Month. Offering a wealth of health benefits, people use this month to create an awareness of the practice. To celebrate National Yoga Month, consider spreading the word and cheer with related gifts. The following suggestions:
Personalized Yoga Mat
YogaMatic allows you to have the image of your choice transferred onto a yoga mat that uses flexible, water-based Dri-Touch inks that are free of solvents. As a result, the finish is odor free and non-toxic. This personalized yoga gift also makes a great present for a birthday or Christmas. The company also offers pilates mats and other personalized yoga accessories, such as a customized yoga towel.
Over the years, the different options in yoga wear has skyrocketed. In an array of colors, sizes and styles, yoga gear offers the likes of V-neck slit tunics, boot cut yoga pants, pleated tanks, cami unitards, yoga shorts, hooded shirts, and cotton inversion shorts. To get started, browse the selection at Gaiam – a website that concentrates on yoga clothing, products and accessories.
For the loved one that likes to exercise in the comfort of their own home, a yoga DVD makes an inexpensive gesture for National Yoga Month. For beginners, consider a kit that comes with a DVD, such as The FIRM’s Beginner Yoga Kit. For a challenge, Power Yoga Total Body Workout DVD with Rodney Yee comes highly recommended.
Allow the personality of your loved one to shine through when you give the gift of water…as in a new water bottle. Replace an old favorite or provide an extra bottle that delivers clean, filtered water. For example, Hydros bottles come equipped with a quick filtering top. Seek out colorful BPA-free plastics or opt for one made out of decorative stainless steel.
Subscription to a Yoga Class
Introduce a loved one to the relaxation and flexibility that comes with yoga. Give a gift that allows them to pay a visit to the local gym, which typically offers a handful of yoga classes to meet various levels of ability. Yoga classes are perfect for relieving stress and keeping the mind and body active.
