We here at YogaDork.com are often humbled by the responses and sometimes unexpected, yet awesome attention we receive. And it gives us enormous pleasure to share the YD flavor and know that other yogadorks out there are enjoying our latest dish on yoga news – with a side helping of healthy sarcasm of course! It is totally what keeps us motoring.
You may have noticed some shiny new blinkyness on the right hand side of the blog lately. Well, we thought we’d take a moment and introduce some superstars in the yoga small biz arena, our amazing sponsors for this month! Because hey, they keep the YD lights on! And we are truly grateful for everyone’s support.
So please take a moment to check out our advertisers keeping the YD engines humming these hot summer days.
In no particular order:
Lotuspad eco yoga mats – Cambridge, MA
Lotuspad mats are of the highest caliber in eco-conscious yoga options (now offering carbon-less local delivery via bicycle!), AND they’re affordable! Plus, you can pick up the super cute carry straps or extra roomy schlep-worthy sherpa bag while you’re at it. (Bonus: YD fans get 15% off your order with code:”dork”…naturally) –follow on twitter @lotuspad
Drishti - Santa Barbara, CA
Drishti is a stellar yoga shop serving the community in sunny Santa Barbara since 2002. Fortunate locals have the convenience of swinging in and perusing the town’s one and only yoga shop for goods and essentials. But lucky for the rest of us, we can shop online! And keep up with the fun Drishti blog. –follow on twitter @drishtiyoga
we’ar – all the way from New Zealand
If everyone who spent money practiced ‘conscious consumerism‘ the world would be a better place. we’ar yoga wear is derived from 100% natural fibers in cotton and cotton-rich knits. Why? Because it is top notch for “comfort, durability and bioelectrical flow.” Keep an eye out for new soy and bamboo textiles down the road. Besides eco, we’ar is particularly fashion conscious, something we have come to appreciate at the same time as contributing to planetary wellbeing. Nice! –follow on twitter @we_ar
Sprout Yoga – Media, PA
Sprout is a non-profit organization on a most honorable mission to aid in the healing of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Eating Disorders through yoga and the integration of yoga and traditional therapies. Their work is invaluable, but they need your support to continue in their dedication to providing free yoga to those who have suffered trauma from PTSD or ED. We urge you to read more, and if you’re a yoga teacher, volunteer a little of your time. Because everything counts, and many littles make lots. –follow on twitter @premapadma
