Hello lovers. We may still be in the frosty grips of a wintery February, but there’s something about a holiday focused on melty chocolate and ooey gooey sentiments that tends to warm the heart. Either that or we should turn down this electric blanket we got for Christmas from its “oven roaster” setting. In any case, the love is there! We love you, we love yoga and we love doing giveaways.
WIN: We’re doubly pleased to be giving away a match made in yoga class heaven for many of us: a VerniceVita yoga mat and a NamaSTAY mat towel.
VerniceVita yoga mats are:
- PVC free
- 25% natural rubber in each mat
- Recycled packaging
- Ethically manufactured
They feature a layer of memory foam so your paws can press and your joints stay comfy because you love your body not bruising it up. Founder Rachael Ennis came up with the idea herself when she was looking for a mat that was firm but had enough cushion. So “Vernice Vita” (meaning “Paint Life” in Italian) was born. Read more about VerniceVita mats here.
And to literally “hug” your mat the NamaSTAY towels are designed to be slip-less in sweaty situations. They actually have sleeves that wrap around the corners of your yoga mat to keep it snug in place.
NamaSTAY yoga towels are:
- made with soft, absorbent, slip-proof, light weight, recyclable 80% Polyester / 20% Nylon microfiber towel fabric.
- equipped with sleeves so they stay in place and protect your mat.
- machine washable.

As if that weren’t enough, yoga valentines, we’re also giving away a very vibrant pair of V-Keen yoga crop pants! You’ve probably seen these fun prints and bold colors walking around your local yoga studio. Each piece in the V-Keen is uniquely hand made and produced with natural fibers entirely in NYC, USA with the highest labor and quality standards, founder and designer Victoria Keen is proud to disclose. The winner will have their choice of the crop pants. Check out the V-Keen collection here.
TO ENTER: Valentine’s Day, love it or loathe it, we can probably all agree it is a total and utter cheese fest. Weeeee. All that mushiness and over-commercialized hype can be too much, so let’s rewind back to the simplest form of heartfelt expression in poetic verse. Did you know the famous “roses are red, violets are blue” dates all the back to 1590? From the Sir Edmund Spenser epic The Faerie Queene. We simply ask you to take the traditional idea and make it your own.
Here, we’ll start it off:
Root chakras are red, smurf yogis are blue
we’d love a yoga valentine
how ’bout you?

Details: The mat and the towel will be given away to one lucky winner. An additional winner will be chosen to win the V-Keen yoga pants. The giveaway is open until 11:59pm Thursday, February 14th. All winners will be chosen at random and announced soon after. Good luck lovers!
UPDATE: Wow, yogi poets unite! This may have been the most creative and entertaining to read giveaway, yet. Your poems were so great we put 23 of them in a dedicated love post to our yoga valentines. Congratulations to Linda for winning the VerniceVita mat and NamaSTAY towel and to Tracy for winning the V-Keen yoga pants! We thank and love you all.
