Yoga is one of the most powerful methods to build your physical and mental health. It helps with overall strength, connecting mindfully on a deeper level, letting go of control and practising gratitude. Taking a group class or practising yoga at home for a busy mum is a great way for her to manage her health and wellness. Let’s look at some ways to support the yoga lover in you.
Be in a Higher State of Consciousness
Sitting quietly, following your breath and tuning out the distractions around you calms your mind. If you need a little help the Gaggler’s Relaxation Meditation Kit is perfect for you to deepen your practice or as a treat for your mum this Mother’s Day.

Shape Up in Your Activewear
While you don’t need complicated accessories for your yoga practice, the right kind of activewear with flexibility, breathable materials and support in the right places, makes a difference. Any yoga lover will appreciate the attention to details in the C&S Cross-Back Crop Top which emphasises comfort, support and quick moisture absorption. Go ahead and knock yourself out with your sun salutations or downward dog asanas – you’ll look and feel great!
Stretch That (Yoga) Strap
Small but powerful to deepen any yoga pose, the Drishti Yoga Strap by Earthistic, is a great eco-friendly addition to any workout kit. Each strap is 100% biodegradable, environmentally friendly, and manufactured from recycled cotton and beautifully finished with a premium D-ring buckle. Perfect for deepening any pose, improving flexibility in tight hamstrings, or having more control in a hard to grasp pose, all whilst enabling better alignment and minimising injuries.
Infuse Copper in Your Hydration
According to Ayurvedic science, water kept in a copper container (also called, Tamra Jal) gently infuses the water with copper’s beneficial health properties. Copper is known to balance the three Ayurveda Doshas that make up your body – Vata, Kapha, and Pitta – as well as, naturally improve digestion, hypertension, cardiovascular disease and cholesterol. The Mandala Full Print Copper Bottle is well designed and a perfect copper bottle to incorporate into your daily routine. Store water in your copper bottle for at least 4 hours for infusion to occur.
