A new line of eco-friendly props thinks outside the blocks with inventive yoga tools designed to enhance both your practice and the health of the environment.
Called Bhoga—Sanskrit for “enjoyment”—this system of blocks, benches, and chairs strives to achieve what the company calls the 4 Es: Ergonomic, Effective, Enjoyable, and Earth-Friendly. Each piece is designed of solid hardwood with arches, notches, and open sides to support the discovery of optimal alignment for beginner, intermediate, and advanced yogis in every pose, says founder Randy Dean: “Every inch of a Bhoga tool is purposeful.” ($36-45, bhoga.com)
