There are so many goodies nestled in the Boutique and Studio! In an effort to make your holiday shopping easy and stress-free, we’ve developed this comprehensive gift guide to give you a variety of great, affordable gift options for your yogi this holiday season.
Gift Ideas for Any Yoga Practice
The holidays are a busy and stressful time which is why yoga is even more necessary for your loved one! In the Boutique, you’ll find endless options to complement any level yoga practitioner.
Is your yogi ready to try a more rigorous class? Do they complain that they constantly slip on their mat? A mat towel is a great compliment to any power or heated practice and will help them reach their goals. We carry Manduka mat towels in the Boutique which absorb sweat from class, keep any yoga mat clean and dry, and will help retain grip on the mat.
Take time for self-care during the holidays! You and your loved one can relax by using multiuse massage balls and rollers from RADroller. They are perfect for pressure point work on almost any area of the body and will relieve unwanted tension in the body’s muscles.
Yoga blankets are gentle props that provide sources of warmth and heat when blocks or bolsters seem to be too much. They make Savasana cozy and warm, plus they can put joints at ease with added relaxation.
We have two sustainable types of blocks in the Boutique that are perfect for your environmentally conscious yogi. Our Dragonfly Cork blocks are made from natural and sustainable cork to provide stability to any practice. You can also find locally made, organic buckwheat blocks from Carolina Morning that simultaneously support and cushion.
Mat Bags and Straps
Enhance your yogi’s practice with a mat bag to help them easily transport their yoga mat to and from class. There are a variety of colors and patterns available in the Boutique. Straps are also great tools for any practice as they give control to poses that might seem more difficult to grasp. They come in a variety of colors and sizes to aid your yogi.
Enhance your yogi’s meditation and yoga practice with a patterned journal! These beautiful notebooks will help aid with intention setting and give ample space needed to write down thoughts and reflections.
Local and Handcrafted Jewelry
Gift your yogi with beautiful jewelry for any occasion this holiday season.
Shop an array of beautifully hand-crafted earrings made by our very own instructor, Maeve Hendrix. These unique pieces have detailed metal work and custom jewels to make your yogi sparkle and shine.

These handmade pieces are sure to delight! SoulKu jewelry is tasteful and locally made with love.
