Barefoot Yoga: Products to Inspire the Practice of Yoga ~ Yoga Bag Giveaway!


The last few months have been a real struggle when it comes to mind, body, and soul. Within a five month period I have lost over 100Lbs, and mentally I'm not in the same boat. With the major changes my body is going through, my depression and anxiety has gotten out of control. One way of trying to stay sane, is yoga and the practice of meditation. I recently came across a unique website called Barefoot Yoga. They sell all kinds of yoga products, like: yoga mats, yoga mat bags, yoga props, yoga accessories, yoga clothing, and much more.

I already had a yoga mat, but the bag that it came in was boring and ugly. I actually like to use that bag for other workout materials I have, like dumbbells. I started doing yoga, via the Wii game system. I'm still quite rusty at it, but looking to eventually join a gym and classes on a regular basis. Now that I've dropped some weight, I'm actually able to do some of the moves! Time to get into shape, and clear my mind of any stress.

I was sent a gorgeous yoga mat bag from Barefoot Yoga, and it exceeded my expectations. The bag that I received: Cotton Velvet Yoga Mat Bag with Indian Beadwork and Embroidery. With this type of bag, they offer a few designs and a variety of colors. Mine is the one on the right, the Indigo color. They must of read my mind, because blue is my favorite color! The quality of the bag is super strong. It's top quality, and even has a couple of pockets if you want to toss in keys, or money, or lipstick... hey you gotta look cute even when you're doing yoga!

Traditional Indian bead, mirror and embroidery work on front pocket.

Fully lined and reinforced with durable cotton. Washable.

Fits most yoga mats.

SIZE: 29 1/2" x 7 1/2"
STYLE: Classic Only
(Drawstring closure, top-loading)

They carry many other types of yoga mat bags, but these are my favorites. Interested in purchasing one of your own? Regular size is $44. Click here! At the moment I notice that there is 25% off, which brings the price to $33, so grab yours today before the price goes up!


I was super surprised at the quality of the packaging when it arrived. It came lined in two envelopes. The top envelope was just the regular mailing one, but the one underneath was a strong plastic. And then it was wrapped nicely with white tissue paper, and held together with one of their sticker labels. After ripping that open, the bag was folded neatly in a sealed, clear plastic bag. Talk about secure packaging, making sure nothing gets damaged.






Gorgeous bead work, you can tell it's all hand sewn. The tag inside says it's originally made in India, and to hand wash and hang to dry.

Thanks to Barefoot Yoga, one lucky reader will get a chance to win their very own yoga mat bag... the same as mine! Must be a CA/US resident to qualify.





I received an item for review, for my honest opinion. I was not compensated for this post. All opinions are my own, and others may vary.
