|In 1979, we were yoga students, attending
classes at a yoga studio in California. In
gratitude, we made a gift for our yoga teachers:
Felicity Green, Lolly Font, and Elise Miller. We
built a yoga bench, modeled on a photograph that
one of our friends brought home from B.K.S.
Iyengar's studio in Pune, India. Our teachers
liked the bench, and used it during studio
classes. Before long, students
and teachers began asking whether we would
fabricate other equipment they had seen at
Iyengar's studio: Backbending Benches, Yoga Ropes,
Inversion Slings, Sandbags, Straps, Shoulderstand
Benches, and more.
We enjoyed making yoga equipment, and felt that
our vocation had found us.
Since 1979, we have maintained our yoga practice,
and nurtured this yoga equipment business. We
design and manufacture yoga furniture at our wood
shop in the United States. Our design decisions
always prioritize functionality, durability, and
beauty over profit margins.
Likewise, we produce our Bolsters, Inversion
Slings, Yoga Ropes, Sandbags, Straps, and Eyesbags
in the United States.
We are committed to selling the highest quality
We are a small family business, operated by human
beings. Because we are not a corporation, we
empathize with human concerns including ethics,
health, beauty, and privacy. We never
sell, rent, or trade our customers' names, phone
numbers, or email addresses.
In designing and building yoga equipment,
we consult with experts so that we offer you the
We match or beat anyone's price on an identical
item in identical quantities.
We ship your order within one business day from
the day we receive payment (except when an item is
out of stock -- very rare).
Our bottom line is health and integrity, not
finance. Making money means less to us than making
the world a better place through the practice of
yoga and honorable business dealings. Perhaps that
is the reason that we have enjoyed the support of
loyal customers for THIRTY-FIVE YEARS.
