  • Celebrate Earth Day with Hugger Mugger!

    On April 22, 1970, the modern environmental movement was born. The very first Earth Day, conceived by then-Senator Gaylord Nelson, drew 20 million activists from all over the U.S. who took to streets, parks and university campuses to protest environmental degradation and advocate for environmental stewardship. Forty-six years later millions of people in 192 countries all around the world celebrate Earth Day.

    Yoga’s yamas (ethical precepts) and niyamas (personal practices) are replete with practices that support sustainability and stewardship. These include non-harming, non-greed, cleanliness, contentment and surrender to something greater than ourselves.

    In keeping with yoga’s philosophy of mindfulness and sustainability, Hugger...

  • How to Choose the Best Yoga Mat for Your Practice

    So Many Choices

    How to Choose the Perfect Yoga Mat
    Before the late 1980s, there was no such thing as a yoga mat. The small but dedicated population who practiced yoga cobbled together an array of towels, blankets and foam pads for practice, but mostly we used whatever surface was available. Back then there were very few dedicated yoga studios. We practiced in church basements, YWCAs, gyms and school classrooms—where we had to move desks to clear a space. We practiced on linoleum, vinyl, concrete, wood, carpet—you name it.

    It was rustic, to say the least. So when Angela...

  • Lavender Flowers for Yoga and Beyond

    Lavender Flowers

    Ahhhh ... Relax with Lavender
    Autumn is the time when it’s natural to draw inward. Right now it seems that every morning is noticeably darker and daylight ends a whole lot earlier each day. As our exposure to natural light decreases, sometimes a little mood modification is in order.

    Lavender is the perfect herb to brighten the shortening autumn days. In addition to its lush and stimulating scent, lavender is said to be a mood lifter, but it’s probably best known for its calming properties.

    There are many different types of lavender available. We recommend trying a few...

  • Bad Dog Arts - Art for All

    Masterpiece in Red

    Bad Dog Arts Inspires a Love of Art for Kids of All Ages
    “To be an artist, you have to be a risk taker.” So says Victoria Lyons, co-founder/co-director of Bad Dog Arts, an organization named for the star of an illustrated book, Bad Dog Rediscovers America, by Michael Morgan Moonbird, the organization’s other co-founder and co-director. In the book, Bad Dog is a risk-taking renegade who travels around the country getting into all sorts of sticky situations.

    When Victoria and Michael embarked on the project that would become Bad Dog Arts, they followed their hearts...

  • Yoga Props: Bolsters and Blankets and Blocks, Oh My!

    How to Use Your Yoga Props
    Blankets and bolsters and blocks, oh my! Wedges and straps and mats, oh my! You’ve probably seen them all, in photos or in your local studio or gym. But what are you supposed to do with them?

    If you attend an Iyengar, Kripalu, Anusara, Viniyoga or Restorative class, you probably have a good idea how to use at least some of them. Other classes, such as Power, Ashtanga, Jivamukti, Vinyasa and Hot Yoga might also employ yoga props here and there. But there are so many choices.

    That’s why we’ve published our Yoga Prop Guide. You can...

  • My Para Rubber Yoga Mat - Friend or Foe?

    My Para Rubber Yoga Mat
    I expected movie love. I wanted to fall head over heels in love with my brand new Para Rubber Yoga Mat. But that was not to be. I packed up my Para Mat and took her for an inaugural four-day retreat, banking on the fact that I would adore it. I actually spent a lot of that retreat thinking how much I regretted bringing her. We practiced for more than 15 hours over the course of the retreat. Think how nice it was for me to have something to vent my frustrations over (my mat).

    I didn’t...

  • Youthlinc - Serving Communities Near and Far

    Youthlinc Creates Lifetime Humanitarians
    One of the best ways to gain perspective on your life—its ups and downs, joys and obstacles—is to venture out of your own back yard. Stepping away, even for a short time, creates space around the things that vex you, and helps your problems seem a little more surmountable. In that space, in relationship to others, you might also remember that you’re not alone. People outside your home, your town and your country are not so different, despite how different our lives might appear.

    This realization is at the core of Youthlinc’s work, which could be summed up...

  • Eat Your Antioxidants!

    Boost Your Antioxidants with a Seasonal Fruit Salad
    One of the best things about summer is that the sweetest, most succulent fruits and veggies are in season. Berries, in particular, are so much better when you can find them fresh and at the height of their sweetness.

    Among the most antioxidant-rich foods are berries, with blueberries at the top of the list. Stone fruits such as plums also rank high for antioxidant power. If you can find fresh, in-season fruits at a farmer’s market, look for them there, but if not, natural foods stores are a good source for organic, in-season fruit.

    We...

  • All Sewn Up - How We Make Our Yoga Bolsters, Eyebags and Meditation Cushions

    Trina Ensures Our Yoga Bolsters Make the Grade
    Have you ever wondered what makes great yoga bolsters stand out? Like most things, there’s not just one factor. The number one quality that makes yoga bolsters rise above the pack is the balance between firmness and softness. A great bolster is firm enough that it bends only a miniscule amount, but is soft enough on the outside that it’s comfy for Restorative practice.

    Abraham Avelar, Hugger Mugger’s bolster master of the past eight years, has found the perfect combination of firm and soft. In order to fill a bolster to perfection, he has...
