In the end, it was never really about the blocks.
Back in Washington.
My heart goes out to the thousands of yous who made my pilgrimage to Bhaktifest so special. My sincere gratitude to everyone who stopped by my little corner of the festival to share their love, support and inspiration. In the end, it was never really about the blocks. Together, we helped actualize a vision of Ananda Woodworks that creates beauty from these tiny bits of wood that have been discarded, forgotten.
Pieced together, the props themselves become an expression of yoga that provides a foundation on which we can reclaim our practice: finding alignment both within our bodies and within the natural world.
We’re here at Bhaktifest! Check us out under the shade of this awesome Juniper tree!
A Yoga platform allows you to practice anywhere. With a simple, elegant design, this prop equips you to soak up all the benefits of being outside and all the alignment perks of a wood floor (your wrists will thank you). And as always, it’s reclaimed & sustainable.
In the adventure of building this platform (backstory to come later), the simplest of all designs prevailed. This piece is in two heavy but manageable sections, providing stability that allows for the practitioner to navigate less-than-flat terrain.
78 inches long
40 inches wide
5 1/4 inches tall
frames/runners = old growth cedar salvaged from roof joists
red slats = douglas-fir roof joists
yellow slats = southern yellow pine pallets (formerly transported hay bales)
pegs = oak pallets
simple lip joint holds two sections together
Ananda Woodworks will debut its first full offering of sustainable yoga props at BhaktiFest 2017! Bring your yoga mats this September to the idyllic Joshua Tree Retreat Center, located in the beautiful region east of Los Angeles. Practice with the best yoga teachers in the world, dance to sacred music by world-renown Kirtan artists, and take workshops with leaders in the field of personal growth.
Ananda Woodworks will have yoga blocks, platforms, straps, and a special surprise line of new products. Stay tuned!
Come visit us at the festival!
