Halfmoon - The Beginning

MeditationGiveaway_1

In Varanasi, India 1983, Halfmoon founder Beth McTavish was captivated by yogis practicing at the edge of the Ganges River. Mesmerized by their intent, their focus, and the stillness of yoga in the midst of noise, chaos, and colour, soon her own Iyengar practice began.

In Vancouver, Canada in 1989, Beth united her love for yoga with her experience in manufacturing. A red seat belt became a yoga strap and rolls of cotton batting became sturdy handcrafted bolsters.

Since the beginning, Halfmoon has been inspired by the values of yoga: non-violence, truthfulness, abstention from wrongdoing, compassion and kindness.

The same values continue to inspire us today.
