Green Accoutrements for Green Yogis: Part Three

Last but not least, the following are of course not necessary to enjoy a good yoga practice but they each bring additional benefits. Candles help to focus the mind and remind us of our inner light. Eye pillows are used during savasana to help us relax, quiet the mind, and shut out natural light. Essential oil is used as aromatherapy (works with our sense of smell to bring healing to the body, mind, and spirit), usually at the end of the practice.

    Last year for Christmas my daughter in law gave me a wonderful gift. Although at the time of opening it I wasn’t sure what it was. I am on the road constantly and thanks to my wife who makes sure it is always packed along with plenty of refill, my eye soother is a god-send after a long difficult day. I am referring to the yoga pillow. It would never have been an item on my Christmas list before, but now it’s one item that makes sense to a man like me. Even tough guys get headaches, my son says with a smile.
