It looks like studios will be closed for a while longer, so more home yoga sessions it is! Stretching out on a yoga mat is an amazing way to stay in touch with your mind and body, and it feels great too. Staying active is what is keeping many of us sane these days, but the same old routine can get boring after a while. If you are looking to update your home yoga equipment, you have come to the right place. Supporting local is as important as ever, so we’ve come up with yoga equipment sourced from smaller, locally run businesses that you can buy online. Namaste!
