PRODUCT INFORMATION

What do I need as a beginner to Yoga?

We always feel that a beginner to Yoga mainly needs an open mind and heart, and a nice surface to practice on. Any of our yoga mats would be suitable, but if you are just starting and not ready to make the investment in a higher end mat, try one of the basic and lower-priced Hybrid Eco Mats as a good base for your practice.

We have some great beginners Yoga DVDs and reference books if you would like to start your own practice at home before venturing to a Yoga studio. Once you determine you LOVE yoga and want to explore it deeper, depending on your level of flexibility and the type of Yoga you pursue, you may want to purchase a block or blocks and/or a practice strap for deepening your postures. Beginners tend to find these very helpful.

Also, depending on the type of Yoga, it is nice to have your own blanket and bolster, however, many studios carry a supply of these. Over time, you might find that you want to own your own yoga products to make them more personal to your practice, and also to have them available for your home practice.

Although you can wear any old sweat pants to practice Yoga in at any time, we do have some wonderfully soft and comfortable Yoga clothing available for men and women that is especially designed for comfort and movement for your practice.

Enjoy the changes and benefits that Yoga will bring to your life and we hope our products help to inspire your practice.

What is your best Yoga Mat?

See our Yoga Mat FAQ page for more information and suggestions.

Which is your most popular practice rug?

Masala and Bengal Blue with OM have long been our most popular rugs. Goa, Darjeeling and Jammu are also newer favorites.

Do your sizes run true to size?

Most of our clothing runs true to size. We recommend that you order the size you generally wear. Some exceptions are:

  • OMgirl clothing tends to run about one size smaller than "standard" sizing because the style on most of the shirts and pants is fitted to show off your Yoga body.
  • Prana clothing seems to run slightly large, but does shrink if desired.
  • Hemp clothing runs very true to size, but may seem slightly small when you first try it on, however this clothing gets larger with age. It does tighten up in the wash but loosens very quickly after wearing it. It is EXTREMELY comfortable.

Why is there limited OMgirl stock/selection?

We have the largest selection of OMgirl clothing available online. All designs are not made in every color, so some designs might seem limited in colors, but if there is a color you are looking for, we are sure to have it in at least 2 designs on our site. Colors also change seasonally, so colors and designs come and go as the OMgirl line is very popular and sells out fast. Get it while you can!

Can you contact me when you get a new product shipment?

Yes! It is possible to backorder almost any item we carry. Please send an email to info@barefootyoga.com or call us toll-free at 1-877-227-3366 and give us the name of the item you are looking for. We will contact you by email or phone once the item is in stock again.

GIFT IDEAS

What would be a good gift for a yoga enthusiast?

Anything we sell on our web site is a great gift for a Yoga enthusiast! Some items might be better gifts than others depending on the type of Yoga your friend, colleague or family member practices.

For Astanga and Bikram students - or any Yogis who do a heat-building or "sweatier" practice - the Mysore Practice Rug™ makes a great gift, even if they already have one.

For Yogis who use props, straps or blocks are a great choice, particularly our unique Bamboo or Indian Rosewood Practice Blocks.

For any Yoga practioner or non-practitioner, our luxurious Silk Eye Pillows make a great gift by virtue of their ability to shut out darkness and relax the little muscles around the eyes. They soothe the senses with the relaxing smell of lavender during the common last pose in any Yoga sequence (savasana - corpse pose - relaxing while lying on your back). You can choose scented or unscented.

If you cannot decide on a gift, you can give a gift card in the amount of your choice. Gift cards can be redeemed online or by phone, and you can even schedule email delivery on a specific day.

We have a wide array of wonderful gift possibilities and have heard time and time again from our customers how much people loved their gifts from our web site.
