10 Mindful Gifts for Yoga Teachers

Your yoga teacher presents you with the gift of uniting the body and mind, and in return, you would like to present her or him with a token of appreciation. A simple “thank you” would do but if you want to give your yoga instructor something tangible, here are a few ideas that are sure to make them smile from within.

Hybrid Yoga Mat

Your teacher may have several classes per day or practice different forms of yoga. The Kharma Khare Hybrid Bliss Non-Slip Eco-Friendly Yoga Mat is really two mats in one. The rubber latex layer is perfect for meditation and the reverse side features better grip for a rigorous yoga routine.

Mexican Serape Yoga Blanket

This striped Mexican serape is a stylish, colorful gift that can be used as a yoga blanket for support during stretches, for picnics in the park, or as a cozy layer for relaxing at home. Better yet, it comes with a vegan leather blanket strap, which can also be used as a yoga mat carry strap.

Glass Nordic Mug

Help your favorite yoga instructor unwind after a long day of classes, or perk up in the beginning of the day with an elegant, classic yoga mug. We love this 16-oz. glass Nordic mug from David’s Tea, which comes with a stainless infuser. Add on a starter pack of teas to complete the gift.

Yoga Journal Subscription

A guide to better health, nutrition, personal growth, fitness and inner peace, Yoga Journal provides insight about physical and spiritual well-being through the practice of yoga. A one- or two-year subscription to this popular yoga magazine is the gift that keeps on giving.

Hand-Knotted Mala Beads

Charm the yoga pants off your teacher by presenting them with this special strand of mala beads, Buddhist prayer beads made with Amazonite, Chrysoprase, and Sandalwood beads. The intonation represents a higher power and there’s no doubt your teacher will think highly of you after presenting them with such a thoughtful token.

Yoga Strap

Even the most flexible of yoga instructors need a bit of help in achieving desired positions. This stylish yoga strap features durable metal buckles and a pastel multicolor stripe, and it comes with its very own bag. The extra-wide design allows for added reach and a secure hold.

Monthly Gift Box

Give a gift of yoga that continues throughout the year. BuddhiBox is the answer for gift givers who know the central interest of their teacher yet are unsure about specifics. Your teacher will receive a monthly gift box of product samples with life, workouts, and the community in mind.

Yoga Bag

Those who want to stay healthy should avoid sugary drinks, and it’s much easier when you have a tasty unsweetened flavored water by your side. Give the gift of healthy replenishment by ordering a bundle of hint water for your yoga teacher in a variety of flavors.
