Cork Mat to Meditation Vessel: 5 Eco-Friendly Yoga Essentials You’ll Love

Whether you're just getting started or you're a long-time practitioner, these essentials will help you stay motivated on the mat.

Originating over 5,000 years ago, yoga is a massive worldwide phenomenon. But if you haven’t yet started your practice, please don’t procrastinate further. Integrating yoga into your everyday life is probably one of the best things you can do for your mind and body. It strengthens the body and brings unparalleled peace of mind. It centers, calms, and uplifts.

Here are some products you can keep at home for seamless yoga practice:

1. Chakra Cork Yoga Mat

Whether you’re a seasoned yogi or a beginner, owning a sturdy yoga mat is the first step. This gorgeous yoga mat by Juru Yoga is ideal for home practice. Made using a unique blend of cork and natural rubber, these are anti-slip mats, exclusively made in India. You’ll want to roll it out a lot more, thanks to its attractive design; the seven chakras in different colours lend it a total zen vibe!

2. Natural Yoga Mat Bag

A perfect companion to your mat, this bag is made of unbleached, undyed, and natural cotton fabric. Since it is made with natural materials as opposed to synthetic fibres, it is biodegradable and therefore, good for the planet. The bag also has a recycled pocket that helps reduce fabric waste which would have otherwise landed in our landfills.

3. Copper Meditation Vessel

Some flowers that can instantly calm and uplift your senses are jasmine, frangipani, and marigold. The design is inspired by a hand-me-down, heirloom uruli vessel and is a treat to the eyes as well.

4. Organic Tulsi Tea

5. Lavender Essential Oil

When used correctly, essential oils can lead to many health benefits. You can use them in aroma diffusers, put a few drops in your bath bucket or apply directly on to your pulse points to reap them. Lavender oil, in particular, is excellent for calming, uplifting and revitalising your mood. Make it a given in your yoga practice.
