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 http://bit.ly/DDDholiday Support @streetyoga

Facebook friendly: Share the yoga love with awesome holiday gifts & a giveaway from The Daily Downward Dog. http://bit.ly/DDDholiday 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:

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!
