So you want to do yoga and look the part?
Here is my go to people for all things yoga.
The Bolster: Essential for Yin and Restorative Yoga:
Globe Artichoke: lovingly made bolsters and meditation cushions. Li’s bolsters are really high quality, firm and hard-wearing yet funky and pretty. Contact Li 0211826801

In New Zealand try Eco Yoga store. The stock a range of mats which I particularly love called Manduka. I have the black pro. It’s comfortable for hard boney people but not too squishy so you lose your balance. They also have a range or bolsters which are great for more supported poses and while you are there grab yourself a strap and a block. They also have great friendly service. My Manduka mat still looks like new after around 5 years as opposed to how I look. Click on the logo to take you to the shop.
I have to put in a plug for the New Lulu Lemon Athletica in Wellington, Lambton Quay as my daughter Isabella works there and they let me teach there. If you want a Christmas present or birthday ask for a voucher, they also have lots of other things to tempt you, but remember that yoga is about being happy with what you already have, but you can be that after you get what you want.
Courage my love is a top end maker of gorgeous leggings based in Christchurch. It’s always good to support and buy local so if you would like something really special to take you from the mat to the office and then out partying all night then head here.
