iYogaprops and Carbon Neutral

10/10/2019 12:54 pm

iYogaprops is passionate about caring for our environment and that's why we are proud to announce we are officially carbon neutral.

We aim to offset all of our product sales and business activity by investing in carbon capture through native forest regeneration.

We calculate the total weight of goods we sell and invest in an equivalent weight of carbon in the form of native forest.

We achieved this outcome though our support for Carbon Neutral and their regeneration of degraded farmland in Western Australia.

Because growing tress takes some time to achieve the full draw down of carbon, Carbon Neutral make shorter term investments in renewable energy production so that there is an immediate carbon dioxide reducing effect of our investment.

Along with this we source quality prodcts and urge our customers to keep up their yoga proactice but use there props for a lifetime of practice.  That way the carbon the props contain stays out of the waste stream and out of the atmosphere. Of course we urge that you take this approach to all consumption. Buy recycled where possible, buy only what is actually needed, buy quality and look after things.  Where it is necessary to dispose of goods, seek out recycling options.

iYogaprops is the only yoga supplies company in Australia specialising in wooden yoga props.  Our ability to do this is down to a skilled timber worker toiling away in rural Victoria, Ian (Mick) Jackson.

The very first iYogaprops product was our design for the Foldaway Backbender.  As a product designer and an Iyengar yoga teacher iYogaprops founder Peter Harley saw a way to improve on the cumbersome but excellent Viparitta Dandasana backbend bench first used by B.K.S.Iyengar.  The result, a much lighter and more compact to store version of the prop with added functions.

Peter called his friend and part time cabinet maker Mick to make the prototypes and first production versions.  Since then Foldaway Backbender has found its way to almost 20 different countries and is now manufactured on a large scale.

As iYogaprops grew we became aware of a need in the Australian community for more of Iyengar's inventions.  Mick stepped up to make all manor of useful gadgets. Halasana boxes, Setu Bandha benches, wedges, Simhasana boxes, meditation stools, Wooden barrels, Viparitta Karani boxes, wooden blocks of various shape and size and the big showpiece for any Iyengar studio the Tressler, the large wooden tressle you may have seen if you have visited an Iyengar school.

Mick makes all these marvellous objects to exacting standards at his modest facility at Yackandandah in NE Victoria. He takes care to source all of the timber he uses from quality plantation timbers or where possible from recycled timbers.

Though the original designs come mostly from the Iyengar Institute in Pune, India, Mick and Peter have worked together to improve and adapt them to local materials and needs.

Over the years Peter and Mick have collaborated on many prop experiments. A few of them have come to production such as the internationally popular Headstand Yoke and more recently the Multifunction Prop designed to assist shoulder stand.
The work goes on.  Mick and Peter are currently working on an adaptation of Alan Goode's kick board prop.
