South Africa finally has a one-stop shop for fun, fabulous and eco-friendly yoga and meditation accessories in the form of the online retail store

I want to combine my love for yoga and meditation with the creativity that South Africa inspires. South Africa is the rainbow nation after all, why should yoga and meditation be any different”. She explained that she has gone through rigorous sourcing to obtain products which are of the best quality and are unique – not being mass-produced. Another feature of the products is that they are made, to greatest extent possible, with natural materials. An example of this is the jute yoga mat which is backed with natural rubber to ensure that it does not skid during the various yoga poses.
