alignyo’s roving reporter Jacki Carr came back from the Yoga Journal Estes Park Conference buzzing about the Rocky Mountains, wildlife, great yoga and cool products. Since we’re on the cusp of the holiday craze, we thought we’d share these festival finds to give you a jump on your holiday shopping. Check out the eco-friendly yoga goods below, including special discounts just for alignyo readers.
Could one of these products make it into your post-practice ritual?
When we spotted organic chocolate bars mixed with spicy chiles, sea salt and hazelnut crunch, we couldn’t resist the Theo Chocolate booth. Theo is the first organic and fair trade chocolate factory in the US and uses some of the finest cacao beans for its eco-exotic chocolate bars. After a heart opening immersion on the mat, our favorite was the Fig, Fennel & Almond bar.
Don't want to bring what's on the studio floor to your mat? Try ToeSox.

Like a juicy twisting yoga class, we found Mockingbird Meadows’ honey and herbs was packed with a healing intent. The sustainable farm blends chemical-free and raw honey with powerful Ayurvedic herb Triphala for a gentle, daily detox based on your dosha. We loved the Triphala Honey Spread – Cool Tranquility, great for the early fall season and those of us that are Pitta. Curious?
