Kathmandu Yogi is a purveyor of ethically made meditation and yoga accessories handcrafted by artisans in Nepal. Our signature meditation cushions are made from Tibetan brocade silks, Bhutanese weaves and Nepali cotton and filled with buckwheat hulls. We also carry yoga bags in complimenting fabrics, Tibetan Buddhist style malas, singing bowls and more articles that support a “yogi” lifestyle.

Natasha Casanova founded the company in August of 2014, after several volunteer trips to Nepal where she forged deep connections with artisans and other locals. Kathmandu Yogi was established with a strong wish that the company’s activities would benefit many, promote cultural exchange, and foster conscious development. The products are more than just consumer goods, but vehicles to cultivate better habits that will inevitably result in growth, development and getting more and more acquainted with one’s true potential. In the wake of the recent earthquakes, shopping Kathmandu Yogi and “made in Nepal” supports people in need more than ever.

Natasha has been a yogi for over 10 years. Her first teacher, and introduction to eastern philosophy, was Lois Steinberg, Phd, an advanced Iyengar Yoga Instructor with over 35 years of practice under BKS Iyengar. She met Lois when she was completing her undergraduate degree at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in Communications in 2002. Natasha then met and became a student of Lama Ole Nydahl, an accomplished Tibetan buddhist master who has founded over 700 lay Buddhist centers all around the globe over the last 40 years at the behest of the great H.H. 16th Gyalwa Karmapa. Natasha is a marketing and communications professional who has worked in the nonprofit, arts, public relations and retail management sectors prior to founding Kathmandu Yogi.
