Halfmoon handmade bolsters and meditation cushions combine the best of handmade craftsmanship with the best of modern design. Equally at home as yoga props and as sitting room floor cushions, the pretty colours, sleek lines and modern designs inspire a feeling of spaciousness both inside and out.
It began in Veranasi, where Beth McTavish stood on the banks of the Ganges, watching yogis create stillness in the midst of chaos.
Back home in Vancouver, Beth started experimenting with cotton batting – turning it into handcrafted bolsters to use as props in her Iyengar practice. There followed a beautiful collection of handmade bolsters and mediation cushions inspired by modern design and the ancient values of yoga – non-violence, truthfulness, compassion and kindness.
Fast forward 30 years and Half Moon is sister to B Yoga – both Canadian companies founded by like-minded women, sharing the same yoga inspired values to create contemporary yoga mats, yoga bolsters and meditation cushions equally at home in the modern sitting room and home yoga room.
