Kate's essentials list for an eco friendly yoga practice

August 11, 2014

In celebration of the first Love Yoga Fest here on Cape Cod just a few days away (where The Optimist Co. is a vendor) we decided why not make this YOGA WEEK!!
To kick things off I ask my very talented friend Kate Sheehan, who is one of the festival founders to share some of her favorite eco friendly yoga products. Check out her list below and also where you can buy local here on Cape Cod! 



You don’t need much to practice yoga but my yoga “essentials” are:



  1. Love Yoga Fest tank (hand-screened on Cape Cod by ARTichoke)
  2. Blue Canoe organic cotton yoga pants from Shift.
  3. Manduka yoga mat (eco-friendly + available locally at our partner studio Inner Glow Yoga
  4. GreenSew Bags mat bag made from Cape Cod Beer’s spent grain bags.
  5. Solstice Day Spa with non-toxic Sheswai polish, also from Shift.
  6. BKR glass water bottle in Love Yoga Fest teal (available at our partner studio Power Yoga of Cape Cod).
  7. Keep your mat clean using a reusable cloth and Time to Shine 
  8. A “beginner’s mind.” Though I have been practicing yoga for about 18 years – each experience on the mat is new in some way. Staying open makes it fun + humbling!

Thank's Kate for a great list and we can't wait to see you at Love Yoga Fest!



Looking ahead for Yoga week we will have posts on how to clean your yoga mat, caring for and cleaning your favorite yoga clothes and some great giveaways!!
