7 Gifts for Yoga Lovers, According to a Celebrity Yogi
Downward dog. Warrior II. Crow pose. Not sure what any of these terms mean, but still have to buy a gift for someone who’s super into yoga? The least Zen thing you could do is stress about it. Take a deep breath and click “add to cart” on these seven items, curated by Koya Webb, celebrity holistic health coach, yoga expert and author.
1. Let Your Fears Make You Fierce by Koya Webb
Koya Webb may have penned this book herself, but that’s why she’s confident that any yogi would love it. She explains, “It’s the best book for self-care, because it suggests daily, easy-to-achieve steps to help improve your health and wellness.”
2. Get Loved Up Nutrition Organic Vanilla Protein with Moringa
Yes, of course Webb has a go-to protein powder for a post-class boost. “This supplement is hands down the most ideal clean, gluten-free option. It enables your muscles to recover faster so you’ll actually see better results over time, all without any questionable ingredients,” she says. Be sure to send your fave yogi the recipe for these three-ingredient protein pancakes that will be a great way to refuel after their 8 a.m. class.
3. ToeSox Grip Pilates Barre Socks
Regular socks are a nightmare to wear during yoga, as they slip and slide all over the mat. Webb loves these particular socks, which alleviate that problem while still keeping feet cozy. She says, “These grippy socks are my favorite feet warmers, because they help yogis keep their toes toasty and spread, which is ideal for proper form and focus.”
4. Alo Yoga Women's High Waisted Moto Legging
Webb raves, “These are the best fitting and most fashionable yoga leggings on the market—they help me look and feel my best.” And we couldn’t agree more. Plus the super stretchy style comes in a wide range of colors and finishes from blush pink to glossy black.
5. YOGABODY Jumbo Yoga Massage Balls with Canvas Bag
Yoga is a great stress reliever on its own, but Webb also likes to up the relaxation by using these massage balls “to practice self-massage.” Roll them around everywhere you’d foam roll: IT band, quads, shoulders, you name it, and you’ll practically feel your muscles melt into them.
6. Gaiam Cork Yoga Brick
Yoga blocks are great for making the floor feel a little closer, for easing into tricky poses like inversions and providing a sturdy seat for meditation. Webb specifically likes this exact design, explaining that “cork yoga blocks provide a great grip for sweaty, hot yoga practices.” Plus, we love that cork is sustainable and 100 percent natural.
7. Liforme Yoga Mat
It’s a fact: Yogis can never have too many yoga mats. Webb recommends this one (that they probably don’t already own) by Liforme, because “it provides the perfect amount of grip and the directional lines are especially handy for training new yoga teachers.”
