Army of Ohm

This troop's mission? To keep inner peace. Designer Dan Abramson looked to a favorite childhood toy to help inspire grown-ups to get into yoga. Armed with a general knowledge of the practice, this platoon of posing servicemen show off their secret weapon: major strength and flexibility. Give the battalion to the disciplined yogi or well-balanced lieutenant in your life, or keep them in your barracks as a reminder to soldier on through your basic (yoga) training. Packaged in a "mini yoga studio" box with a bamboo floor. Made of ABS plastic in China.

Poses include:
Headstand
Meditation Pose
Cobra Pose
Warrior One
Warrior Two
Child's Pose
Tree Pose
Crow Pose
Downward-facing Dog

“I knew then I had a responsibility to do this well and do it right.”

Toy inventor Dan Abramson has taken an interesting approach towards promoting the practice of yoga. He’s created Yoga Joes, which are classic green plastic army men who’ve traded their guns in for yoga poses. Abramson made Yoga Joes because he thought it would be a fun way to get more people into yoga. Beyond that, he wanted to make a violent toy become peaceful.

Awesome, awesome, awesome! I was a little wary of the price at first, but once they got here I couldn't stop smiling every time I looked at them so I knew it was the right buy and 100% worth it. My coworker absolutely LOVES them and honestly I think it's one of the coolest gifts anyone has ever given him (If I do say so myself...)

I purchased these for my boyfriend who I actually met in yoga class as a cute stocking stuffer for Christmas. They arrived broken and now there's not enough time to send them back for an unbroken version before the holiday. I'm disappointed because these are so unique and adorable but the quality seems poor.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Yoga Joes:

    I am a college professor and I have put the yoga joes on my desk for students to fiddle with when they come to my office during office hours. They help students take the edge off and they are conversation starters about confounding contradictions and the function of toys.

          Arrived quickly, well made, and a hit with our grandson and his parents. The size is perfect for little hands and if mother or father practice yoga, it will be a hit "Make yoga poses, not war."
