Are you looking for meaningful and practical items to make some yoga goodie bag ideas? Here are my favorite ideas for some inspiration. Read more to find out.
Eye-catching goodie bags don’t always have to be for kids’ birthdays. When it comes to yoga, you always want the best things for your students and friends. If you’re running a yoga studio, you can make your students feel special with some yoga goodie bags to take home.
Here are eight coolest yoga goodie bag ideas you don’t want to miss.
1. Cotton Yoga Socks
Cotton yoga socks will help your students stick to their moves and protect their feet when practicing on the cold floor. Most beginners wear regular socks that are not made of moisture-wicking fabrics or have grips. By giving them the right yoga socks in a goodie bag, they will be stunned to know you care.
Ensure the socks are breathable, lightweight cotton to help your students’ feet stay dry for longer. Plus, look for ones with grips underneath to give them the best balance on the ball of their feet.
2. Energy-Boosting Protein Snacks
Small but mighty, energy-boosting snacks make the best yoga goodie bags, as your students can eat them to stay energized right before your class.
One of my favorite snack bars for a busy afternoon is one made of locally sourced ingredients and nutrient-dense whole grains such as oats, millet, nuts, and seeds. To make it more enjoyable, find the right brand of energy bar that gives you multiple flavors and allows you to mix and match with different flavors to pack in one bag. Another top call to stock up on your goodie bags is this Pure Protein Bar.
3. Yogi Tea Bags
Soothing and easy-to-drink teas such as a ginger blend, oolong, black tea, chai, or classic yogi tea are some of the best ideas to stock up on for your yoga goodie bags. Packed with antioxidants in just one sip, a warm cup of tea helps your students get ready and energized before the class starts, especially in the morning when they need something hot and aromatic to get into the right headspace.
If you run a yoga class, offering tea is a great way to bridge the gap between the yoga session and re-entering the world. Other than that, yoga tea bags also help them relieve stress, alleviate pain, and improve their respiratory system.
4. Morning Mindful Mug
Pair your tea bags with an inspirational mindful cup to complete a meaningful morning. You can choose from a wide selection of creatively designed cups imprinted with colorful yoga pose cartoons, symbols, or quotes to remind your students to be mindful.
If you cannot find one you like, reach out to your favorite local print shop or ceramic store and ask them to make a set of high-quality ceramic mugs. This way allows you to make your own design too.
5. Chakra Bracelet Or Mala Bracelet
Pack a chakra bracelet or mala beads in the yoga goodie bag so your students can keep their minds focused and relaxed. These mala bracelets are also known as prayer beads, ojuzu counting beads, or onenju thought beads that are made of 108 beads swathing around the wrists on a string.
Depending on your budget, you can opt for one made of wood, seeds, bone, stone, or crystal. Precious materials with gorgeous colors and designs usually stay on the higher end of the price spectrum.
The mala bracelet will open the Chakras’ energy while your students repeat the mantras. At the end of the day, your bracelet will help them clear their mind, combat anxiety, and pave the way for positive energy to flow throughout their bodies.
6. Natural Essential Oil
I like to gift my friends a set of 10ml oil bottles in different aromas or one big 50ml bottle in a goodie bag. For a more fulfilling meditative session, go for frankincense, Ylang-Ylang, sandalwood, and cedarwood.
The best thing about essentials oil is they’re pretty versatile; some go in diffusers, some can be sprinkled on a pillow before bedtime, and others are ideal for diffuser jewelry to stay grounded on the go.
7. Yoga Block
If your studio doesn’t supply these, it will be a thoughtful touch to gift your students yoga blocks with your logo. The yoga blocks are vital for those attempting to tackle tricky poses. Other than that, these yoga blocks will reduce the chance of injury to ensure they land their poses correctly.
Browsing for the best materials to gift your students is a joy in itself too. There is a huge variety of sustainable materials to choose from, such as cork and recycled foam. Plus, you can get them in various colors as well.
8. Yoga Strap
Last but not least, giving away durable and high-quality yoga straps is perfect for a yoga goodie bag. These straps are a lifesaver for those who have been practicing yoga for a long time. With this thoughtful gift, your students will have great support to decrease tension and improve flexibility over time without risking injury.
Even better, a yoga strap goes a long way for beginners who find touching their toes challenging. It helps release their hamstrings and eliminates risky injuries such as overly rounding their backs or pushing their bodies out of alignment. If you’re looking for the best material, I highly recommend cotton, as it’s soft and provides the proper textured grip.
