Happy holidays, yogis!
Do you participate in the Christmas gift-giving tradition?
I'm doing my best to shift away from raw consumerism (buying pointless stuff) to creating heartfelt, personalized gifts for people I love. With that in mind, I'd like to kick off the Alive in the Fire 2015 Holiday Gift Guide!
May these ideas inspire you to be generous and creative. Namaste.
Alive in the Fire Holiday Gift Guide: Part 1
Gift Ideas for 'The Yogi Who Has Everything'It's hard to find good yoga apps, and I was so happy when I discovered MY OM. You can use this app to learn about yogic philosophy, Sanskrit, chakras, and asana alignment. The app is set up with quizzes that help you explore, stay curious, and learn new information. Whether you’re a seasoned yogi, are in the midst of certification, or have been teaching for years and are looking to refresh and challenge your knowledge, MY OM is a fun and approachable learning tool.

Most of us are tired of spending $75+ on a single piece of yoga wear. I'm so happy to see the Four Athletics brand emerging through their Kickstarter campaign. Keep an eye out - they're going to be doing big things in the yoga and fitness world! PS The diagram below shows how they are using crowdfunding instead of a traditional retail model. Amazing!

A 'Namaste' pillow. Boom. ;)
Yogi Surprise is hands-down my favorite brand I discovered through my blog. Their subscription boxes are filled with fun goodies -- yoga props, healthy snacks, all-natural bath and body products, posture sequence cards, books, and sometimes jewelry. It's like a little retreat every time it comes in the mail. See some recent box reviews from Yogi Surprise November and Yogi Surprise February.
Stay tuned for the next part of the holiday gift guide... gifts to take your asana practice to the next level!
