Ahnu footwear has come out with a yoga lifestyle line that has been heavily visible in Yoga Journal over the last year. The marketing folks were kind enough to send me both the Karma Mesh (in grey) and the Maia Nubuck Leather Sandal (in cactus). They are not intended for your actual yoga... Read more

Talltique was founded by 6’3” blonde beauty, Helen Pappas. I was delighted to come across their website, because they cater to women 6’ and taller and offer clothing designed specifically for the taller woman.

Aurorae Resin Bag, Yoga Teacher Magazine

Aurorae is a fine company with great customer care. The rosin bag purports to stop the slippin’ and a-slidin’ on the yoga mat, and for my purposes it works fine. I’ve read complaints that sweat washes the rosin away but I would try using a towel on the skin first if one is perspiring copiously,... Read more
