It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. We’ll not actually look like based on the ever so changing weather but if you’ve walked into a department store or big box retailers I’m pretty sure that you’ve seen the massive Holiday presentation. This year we have all found ourselves living the last 6-7 months in a national pandemic. The fear of interacting with others outside your home or workplace and socializing has taken the world by storm. Therefore millions of people have found themselves quarantined in their home with very little to do, however many have started to take their health into consideration and so this year I wanted to highlight a few of my favorite yoga items that are eco-friendly, sustainable and promote living a greener lifestyle in my 2020 Holiday Gift Guide.
