Nowadays, enthusiasts can choose from a wide range of subscription boxes which cater to almost every interest. Services like the SeaCrate, a monthly subscription box for beach lovers or the Unicorn Dream Box, which offers all things unicorns, make sure that even the most unique interests are covered.
Luckily, yoga practitioners and meditators have great options too. Subscription boxes can help curate useful tools to spark motivation and self-discovery. So instead of looking for inspiration, it promptly shows up at your doorstep every month. With less time spent searching for the right gear and more time for focusing on bringing out your best self, what's not to love?
Below are eight subscription boxes that can help yoga practitioners, meditation gurus, or just anyone interested in unwinding surround themselves with items that can help take them to the next level.
Founded by yoga teacher, Maxine Chapman, BuddhiBox is all about promoting the yogi lifestyle. Every box includes cruelty-free, ethically sourced items tied to yoga principles. BuddhiBox also makes sure to only work with vendors that have sustainable and eco-friendly practices.
Yogis can expect to find yoga accessories, food and beauty product within each box. There are also unique items in each shipment like an intention card, yoga posture card, and an inspirational quote. Subscribers can opt for the Yoga, BBEO, or Jewelry Box. Whatever the choice, a portion of sales from every box supports a global charity.
In an email interview with Green Matters, Maxine explains her passion for helping people through this box, saying, “I pick a different charity to partner with each month to donate proceeds to. Past non-profits include Shelter to Soldier that takes dogs from shelters and trains them to be therapy dogs for combat vets and GLOW (Go light Our World) that raises money for solar power solutions for impoverished villages in Africa and Asia.”
Between studio memberships, workout gear and clothing, practicing yoga can sometimes get pricey. YogaClub aims to make it more affordable by offering a subscription box full of top notch items at low prices. The team of experts works their magic to pull together an entire outfit for the price of one high-end pair of yoga pants.
To make sure it works for everyone, the site has personalized the online shopping experience and asks its users to take a style quiz. From there, a stylist figures out the best outfit based on style, body type and workout needs. YogaClub fans can expect to find brands like Free People, Columbia, Manduka and Teeki inside their monthly box. Packages vary between the Mantra, Karma, and Guru subscriptions.
MoonBox is all about aligning self-care with the astrological lunar calendar. At the start of every month, the company sends out everything you might need for beauty, wellness, and holistic healing. The box encourages recipients to also set an intention at the beginning of each new moon so that it can manifest by the next full moon.
Recipients can expect to receive not only new items, but also access to digital resources, like guided meditations. The team behind MoonBox makes sure that every item selected is organic, vegan, gluten-free, and ethically produced. Subscribers can choose between the MoonBox, Mini MoonBox, or Moon Mail. To keep the good vibes flowing through every box purchased, MoonBox has partnered with Trees For The Future, which teaches communities about sustainable farming practices. So far, they’ve helped plant 18,287 trees.
4. Om Babes
The Om Babes box helps yogis bring their best self to the mat through monthly packages that can develop their practice. Each box has about four to six curated items that touch on self-care or personal development.
Yogis can expect to receive a wide range of items like books, yoga gear, clothes, or bath products. Everything is geared to helping the end user feel more present. Om Babes subscribers can pick between three packages: Treat Yo’ Self, Love Yo’ Self, or Spoil Yo’ Self.
5. Yogi Surprise
Yogi Surprise is also geared specifically towards helping yogis bring out their best om. This subscription team is dedicated to offering tools that can be “a compass and a guidebook so when we inevitably get lost, we know where first to look.” Inside each box, yoga practitioners from every level can discover non-GMO, cruelty-free, vegetarian and, when possible, 100 percent USDA Organic products.
While Yogi Surprise offers a new package every month, subscribers can pick between the Yoga Box which can help take their practice to the next level or the yoga Jewelry Box that offers hand-crafted and fair-trade gems. True to their inclusive mission, this company also offers a Men’s Yoga Box packed with hard to find cruelty-free and non-GMO items.
6. Enjoy Leggings
While yoga practitioners are often on the hunt for a perfect, flexible outfit, Enjoy Leggings is a great source for both yogis and other athletes. This team has one mission: to find the perfect high quality leggings for you that won’t break the bank every month.
The result? Tried and tested leggings that can help you hike, climb, and bend your way through a workout without having to think about anything except your perfect form. Subscribers can expect to receive a new pair of colorful and snazzy leggings every month once they sign up.
Next up is a box that can benefit almost anyone whether or not they’ve ever stepped into a yoga studio. CalmBox is crammed with six to eight items to help users find zen. Items can include snacks, candles, books, music, tea, or pretty much anything that promotes a peaceful state. Every month has a new theme that promotes things like meditation or stress relief.
CalmBox’s founder, Daniil Kulchenko, tells Green Matters in an email interview, “We focus primarily on providing a monthly experience to help people stressed out from their day-to-day to come home to something that can help them relax and unwind for a bit. We try and give our subscribers the tools to smile, to meditate, to breathe.”
CauseBox is another great option for yoga and non-yoga practitioners alike. This subscription box focuses on items everyone can feel good about receiving. The team takes time to explain why each partnering brand gives back and goes into detail about how each product inside the box is created.
CauseBox itself gives back as well through charity partners like Speak Your Silence, The Jessie Reese Foundation, and Books for Africa. Recipients can expect to find six to eight seasonal items like skincare products, accessories, and homewares within each box. While their items are focused on women right now, they do offer special edition boxes like a men’s box from time to time.
