December 4, 2011

If you missed the Daily Downward Dog’s holiday yoga gift guide, you’ll want to step, hop, or float on over to that post and check out the great deals on gifts for the yoga lovers in your life. Each of the products are made by yogini goddesses, and some of them happen to live right here in Ohio (buckeye yoginis rock!).

Wherever you shop this year, please support local small business, spread the love, and support your local yoga studios by purchasing a gift certificate. Take it a step further and consider donating time or money to a charity like Street Yoga.

In the spirit of spreading the love, The Daily Downward Dog is giving away two awesome yoga holiday gift packs. Special thanks to Cherie of NamaSTAY Yoga Towels and Rachael of Vernice Vita Yoga Mats for offering up these yogalicious treats for Daily Downward Dog readers. It’s super simple to enter; all you have to do is share the yoga love!


Holiday Prize Package #1: A NamaSTAY Yoga Towel + a bottle of Indu Nectar of the Gods Lotion (Yoga Crack)




Holiday Prize Package #2: 1 Over the Shoulder Yoga Mat Strap + a $30 off gift card good for a Vernice Vita Three Layer Memory Foam Yoga Mat + 1 bar of Lavender & Lemongrass natural handmade soap from Zuddha



How to Win!

Did you know that when you share a message or leave a comment, it’s the equivalent of giving a hug to the recipient? You get a hug back in the form of one entry each time you share the love with a message like:

Twitter friendly: Share the #yoga love with awesome holiday gifts & a #giveaway from @downwarddog Support @streetyoga

Facebook friendly: Share the yoga love with awesome holiday gifts & a giveaway from The Daily Downward Dog. Support Street Yoga

Or choose Google+, another social media method of your choice, or good old-fashioned e-mail.

Get bonus entries when you follow these awesome yogini goddesses or sign up for their e-mail newsletters:

NamaSTAY Towels:   Twitter   Facebook

Vernice Vita Yoga Mats:   Twitter    Facebook

Omala:   Twitter    Facebook

Zuddha:    Facebook

Cheryl Hall Sanskrit Lessons:      azvedicchant at

Most importantly, leave a comment below and be sure to specify each way you spread the love. In the same holiday spirit, you’re more than welcome to leave comments about local yoga studios or yoga products that you would like to promote this holiday season.

This giveaway will run until 12/12/11 at 11:11 AM (EST), when two lucky love-givers will be randomly selected to receive one of the holiday gift packs. I’ll post the name of the winners in the comments here, on The Daily Downward Dog Facebook page, and on Twitter. This contest is available to everyone – the DDD will foot the bill for international shipping!

I left a comment and shared the love on Facebook. I have been using the indu lotion and endorsing it for months. It is my favorite. Please pick me to win!!!!! Namaste.

Thanks Maria!
I was aware of Street Yoga, but thanks to DDD, I’m more familiar now. I have been “drifting” toward becoming a yoga therapist, but not sure where that would journey would take me. It seemed it was toward working with an older population.
But, after visiting the Street Yoga site, and buying a bag so I can “wear my support”, I’m seriously considering going to their training in February in Chicago. I worked with under-served, at risk high school youth for 35 years. I think I hear them calling me back, and I think I have much to offer them, and I know they have much to offer me.

Wow Dee – that is cool! Keep me posted as to what you decide to do. I would love to help volunteer!


Becca @ Peace, Love & Bagels December 5, 2011 at 1:48 PM

Hi Dee! I’m in teacher training right now and me and one of my other TT friends got in touch with Street Yoga to see what we’d need to do to bring Street Yoga to CLE. We may go to the training in February too!


Dee Eisner December 5, 2011 at 4:14 PM

Great to hear from you. I will keep in touch.

Thanks to everyone who spread the yoga love. I’m especially pleased that many of you learned about Street Yoga and hope you get involved. It would be awesome to see Street Yoga get established here in Ohio!
