THE MIND SOUL CONNECTION (With a bit of body!)

Yoga remains in the spotlight with many people engaging, and more thinking about. The Rodney Yee: Abs Yoga for Beginners DVD makes it easy to start. These strengthening workouts, by one of the premier yogis, last only 20 minutes and includes conscious breathing and deep relaxation techniques.

A workout for your mind and soul – and your body!

[More advanced workouts are available.]


If your love already adores yoga, a gift of another mat. The Classic 1/8″ Yoga Mat is thin with a textured, non-slip, high-stick surface. You might pair this gift with a healthy food delivery subscription, present it with a bouquet of favorite flowers/food, or gift several in different colors.



Or, if they’re really into yoga, get a complete yoga set. The Khataland YoFoMat PRO Folding Yoga Mat. Excellent for the traveler. Made of
eco-friendly material, including an eco carrying case. In several colors.


A good night’s sleep or simple relaxation certainly aids mind, body and soul (M, B & S).  The HoMedics Sound Spa Relaxation Sound Machine provides both with six relaxing sounds, including nature and white noise. Has auto-off timer.

15287680Or, for a bigger investment, especially if they simply want white noise to block out sounds (WHAT exactly are the neighbors doing?) The Dohm-DS by Marpac is a white noise generator that masks unwanted noises.


Dance is the hidden language of the soul, of the body. Martha Graham

Dance certainly revs the mind, body and soul. Has your love expressed interest in learning the waltz, salsa, swing, tango, etc.? Dance studios often exist in even small towns, offering group classes for as littleas $15-20/class (with $10-$15 to participate with a partner). Costs decrease with multiple classes (i.e.3-4, $45-$55). Most schools offer online gift cards, so you’re still good to go in presenting your Valentine’s Day gift on the day. Just insert the gift card in a lovely card or attach to flowers or similar.
