Its that time of year once again! The malls here in Istanbul are crowded with shoppers and decorations are up. Though Christmas has become more and more about buying stuff, the real gift of this holiday is getting an opportunity to help others, being with loved ones and bringing some joy and light into the winter season.
Giving a gift that supports mental and physical wellbeing is a great way to show you care.💗
When the girls were little, we used this rhyme for guiding our gift-buying:
Something you want, something you need, something to play with and something to read.
Now, on the road, we focus more on experiences over buying stuff but we still carry with us some of our favorite yoga essentials and a few extras that enhance our practice and daily life.
Here is the list of holiday gift ideas:
High-Waisted Yoga Leggings by Campsnail
We love using these leggings not only to film our online classes but also to wear them as a we travel! Super light, easy to clean and fit into our luggage.
Himalayan Glow Natural Lamp-Small
Adding a salt lamp to your space is wonderful, especially where you practice yoga or meditate.
Manduka Yoga Mats
We absolutely LOVE our Manduka mats! They are strong, durable and well made. We have used them everywhere from beaches and mountains to the airport. The purple one is super light-weight and portable and the blue is a little heaver but also more padded.
Manduka Yoga Bolster
A bolster is an amazing tool to add to practice. It can help support the body in different postures which is essential for Yin and Restorative yoga in particular.
These yoga blankets are perfect not only for support in a pose but also for comfort during Savasana and meditation, especially on a cold morning. 🙂
Essential oil diffuser
We loved using this in our house back in the U.S. Its a great way to keep your space smelling nice without chemicals. It is particularly wonderful to have nearby during our yoga & meditation time.
Young Living Essential Oils
This is one of the best essential oil brands! Perfect for an essential oil diffuser or even as a natural perfume.
Wellness Wanderers Membership for Online Yoga & Meditation.
Step on the mat in your own home and join the global community of members on Patreon from around the world.
