TOETOE Toe Separator
Feet are happier and healthier with TOETOE socks.

When the foot moves freely it encourages the foot to function properly. By separating the toes gently, TOETOE socks help increase awareness, mobilise toes and bring ease to the anatomical functions of the foot, eliminating friction between the toes to help prevent blisters and bunions. Also helps exercise muscles, tendons and ligaments to relieve foot pain.

EcoYoga Jute Mats
Yoga is freeing and empowering: release your innate, true self on a mat that’s just right for you. One firm, ecoYoga Ltd, created by yogis motivated by their own practice, has been manufacturing mats in the UK since 2003 — they’re perfect for allowing your body to move just the way nature intended. As the name suggests, ecoYoga believes it inappropriate that mats be made of an oil-based material (i.e. plastic of any form), nor should they be mass produced using cheap labour. And so the company set about doing things a little differently, turning to jute, a traditional material, to deliver ethical, planet-friendly mats to active yogis. The aesthetic, strength and environmental quality of jute, along with Scotland's (now gone) jute industry, was the inspiration to create mats using jute fabric at their core. A 100% natural rubber blend provides the body of the mats offering the grip and support every student seeks. The mats are now available in five super grippy colours, including a unique colour-free option, as well as three choices of thickness. For beginners and experienced students alike. Visit the ecoYoga website to view the full collection and find stockists.
Surya Namaskar Cork Yoga Mat
This premium non-slip cork yoga mat is a perfect Christmas gift for every yogi! The mat is completely eco-friendly, as both cork and natural rubber are completely sustainable and vegan. The soft and luxurious cork top is known to be non-slip, more so when the user starts sweating due to the increased surface tension between the skin and the cork surface. The robust rubber base provides great contact with the ground, allowing the mat to be used anywhere…home, studios, park or the beach.
Bamboo Tulip Vest
Move easily with this soft but structured slim-fitted vest. Reap the benefits of your practice while the bamboo fibres keep you cool (or warm!) and without the stress of fabric falling in your face during down dog. With a fold over rear design, it's perfect for layering or pairing with Raw Flora’s Move leggings.
