For this month's We Heart, let us introduce you to Halfmoon.
They are inventors, makers, and curators of the best yoga and meditation products available.
The benefits of yoga and meditation can be life-changing. We're big fans of both at Annmarie Skin Care, which should come as no surprise. They are natural extensions of a solid self-care routine. Halfmoon is this month's We Heart due to their ongoing feature devotion to sharing the ethical, natural, and wellness-oriented companies that we love. We vet their product line and business practices and partner with them for exclusive offers.
Halfmoon's goal is to share the experience of yoga and meditation with as many people as possible. They believe that props are for everyone, whether you have an advanced practice or something entirely new. They've created a variety of products that will help inspire you and meet you exactly where you are.
Like what, you ask? They and make yoga bolsters, meditation cushions, and other beautiful props in Burnaby, Canada where they fill them with natural materials and send them directly to you.
A look back at the beginning…
In 1983, Halfmoon founder Beth McTavish was captivated by yogis practicing at the edge of the Ganges River, in Varanasi, India. She was mesmerized by their intent, their focus, and the stillness of yoga in the midst of noise, chaos, and color. When she returned home her own Iyengar practice began. Beth united her love for yoga with her experience in making and manufacturing. A red seat belt became a yoga strap and rolls of cotton batting became sturdy handcrafted bolsters. From there, Halfmoon Yoga Products had begun.
Almost 30 years since its inception, the same values continue to inspire Halfmoon, along with its sister company, B Yoga. Together, Halfmoon and B Yoga continue to offer diverse and enduring yoga and meditation props to yogis across the globe. Since the start, Halfmoon has been inspired by the values of yoga: non-violence, truthfulness, abstention from wrongdoing, compassion and kindness.
