First up in the Gifts from the Heart series is a guide to finding gifts for newbie yogis. Here are some ideas for what to buy any beginner so that they feel prepared for class.
Yoga Gifts for Beginners
Pick Your Yoga Practice by Meagan McCrary, a guide to exploring and understanding different styles of yoga (so they can figure out which classes to try).
A class pass to their favorite studio (because helping them learn from an experienced teacher is really the best yoga gift you can give!). Try Groupon or the Yoga Journal Directory to find local studios.
A handmade yoga block from JBN WoodCraft Design (to stay safe when trying new poses).
A mat strap from The Apron Shop (so it's not awkward carrying a mat around).
Mat spray from AromaZen (to keep so fresh and so clean).
An album of relaxing yoga music by Adam Lees or Neil Middleton (so they can drop into their practice while at home. Check out my review of First Light or my review of Sunrise Music.
