With yoga studios closed across much of the United States because of COVID-19, many yogis are missing the community and connection that comes from attending regular classes. If you have a friend who misses their yoga studio, help them continue honing their craft by giving them a few items that will turn their spare room or basement into a soothing home oasis. With just a few supplies and a little TLC, your friend can turn a boring room into a blissful yoga zone that will soothe their mind, body, and soul. The following gifts for yoga lovers will add a welcome dose of Zen to any space.
If there’s one item that all aspiring yogis should have in their possession, it’s a sticky mat that will protect them from slipping or shifting as they practice their poses. Designed to last for the long haul, high-quality sticky mats will be a welcome tool for your yoga-loving friend for years to come.
From willowy snake plants to leafy bird’s nest ferns, plants can turn a nondescript spare room or basement into a one-of-a-kind yoga haven. Purchase a few plants so your friend can add a welcome splash of green to their yoga den.
If your friend has been tuning into a slew of virtual yoga classes lately, why not give them a sturdy stool they can place their laptop on? The stool will hold their laptop in place and make it easier for them to follow along with the yoga teacher.
Nothing helps someone center themselves like doing yoga in a beautifully lit room. Buy a candle or two for your friend so they can perfect their practice under a peaceful glow.
5. Essential Oils
Turn a makeshift yoga setup into a true oasis by purchasing a few essential oils and a diffuser that your friend can use during classes. The soothing scents will help them feel relaxed throughout the entire yoga session.
6. Stretchy Yoga Pants
Empower your friend to commit to yoga practice for the long haul by giving them a pair of comfortable, well-made pants. Yoga pants come in all colors, styles, and sizes, which means you can easily find a pair that matches your friend’s personality.
7. Meditation Cushions
Meditation cushions and seats help support and balance the body in a comfortable position while meditating or stretching. Available in all shapes, sizes, and colors, they add some much-needed pizzazz and fun to a yoga space. You can also buy a yoga ball that will help your friend reduce stress and anxiety.
8. Yoga Blanket
Add some color and texture by investing in a yoga blanket. When your friend isn’t doing yoga, they can store the blanket in a woven basket to bring a touch of coziness to their home.
By giving the yoga lover in your life one of the above gifts, you can help them transform their home into a spiritual haven and continue perfecting their skills from the comfort of home.
