WHAT IS HALFMOON?
In a nutshell, Halfmoon hand-makes yoga bolsters, meditation cushions, and a variety of other products filled with natural materials all right here in beautiful British Columbia. The concept is to share the life changing experience of yoga and meditation with as many people as possible. Halfmoon’s products will inspire you to continue to practice, whether you’re new to the concept or more advanced.
Founder Beth McTavish began her journey in Varanasi, India in 1983. Captivated by the yogis practicing by the river, she set out to begin her own practice back home. Using a red seat belt as a yoga strap, alongside rolls of cotton batting for bolsters, Halfmoon was born. 30 years later, the company continues to operate on the ever-inspiring values of yoga: non-violence, truthfulness, abstention from wrongdoing, compassion, and kindness.
