Maybe she’s popped in and out of classes for years and is ready to make a commitment, or maybe he stepped on the mat one time and realized what it meant to find hOMe. Either way, these gifts are for the person in your life who’s ready to step beyond the occasional flow class and start living their yoga, on the mat and off.
This will undoubtedly be the easiest gift you buy all season long – so easy that we might have to recommend you set up an Alo Moves account for every yogi on your list. AloMoves is the premier online platform for yoga; for $20 per month, you can practice with expert instructors from all over the world, including a few of NJ’s most loved, Eleonora Zampatti and Phyllicia Bonanno.
Price: $20 per month

The Books Every Yogi Should Own
Yoga is SO much more than asana. If someone in your life is ready to learn more, these books are an incredible place to start. Please note – there are absolute classics that aren’t on this list. Why? Because we wanted to focus more on inspiration and an invitation toward self-exploration. Also, some of the more “old school” tomes aren’t exactly easy to get through (the words “fun” “light” and “engaging” don’t exactly apply). Plus these are OUR favorites!
Deep Listening by Jillian Pransky
Revolution of the Soul by Seane Corn
Yoga for Everyone by Dianne Bondy
After Namaste: Off-the-Mat Musings of a Modern Yogini by K. Kris Loomis
Living Your Yoga: Finding the Spiritual in Everyday Life by Judith Hanson Lasater
Bringing Yoga to Life, Yoga Mind, Body & Spirit – A Return to Wholeness & The Breathing Book, all by Donna Farhi
Blocks bring the floor to you, provide stability, encourage proper alignment, and help you deeper into poses with increased flexibility. Every single yogi needs two, and that goes double for newbie yogis who may feel intimidated by advanced asanas (or maybe even just touching toes). We love the Yoga Hustle blocks because they are bright and bold, but it’s not all about the look – these lightweight foam blocks are the firmest on the market.
And one more thing we can’t resist to tell you: YOGA HUSTLE is the only woman owned and run yoga accessories and mat company in the US!

“When you need a deeply intentional way to work on your energy centers and emotional well-being, chakra rollers can provide another level of assistance. This complete set covers all chakras. Includes four rollers – Epiphany, Declare, Purpose and Root. Epiphany works on crown chakra and third eye centers. Declare assists with opening and receiving love and allowing us to communicate wisely. Purpose works with solar and sacral centers – assists with opening up to our creativity and purpose in life. Root chakra is for feeling grounded and protected. Each essential oil rollerball is formulated by hand in New Jersey by Jody and Michaline. They include botanicals from their garden and a crystal that help assist with that energy center of the body.
