I received Yoga Joes as a wonderful gift from my wife after I began practicing Vinyasa hot yoga in Portland. As a IAVA veteran and someone who works with veterans daily, I deployed the Yoga Joes in a strategic and yet calming location on my desk. They have been met with delight. Much love, Scott.

Great gift, but be careful gettting them out
I was so excited when I saw these. My 5 yr old son is really into "army guys" and we've been working on deep breaths to "calm the inner Hulk" for a long time. What better way to introduce yoga as a cool guy thing than these Yoga Joes?! He opened the present on Christmas and asked each about each position and then did them all (we've practiced yoga in bits for a while). Unfortunately, they were packed so tightly in their container that one broke as we were taking it out (tree pose). I will glue it back together as it is not showing me a replacement option, but recommend having adult help to open the box for anyone buying it.

Great product. My patients get a kick out of it when I tell them that they need to stretch. I tell them that STRETCH NEEDS TO BE THE WORKOUT! NOT JUST STRETCH BEFORE WORKING OUT, BUT STRETCH NEEDS TO BE THE WORK OUT. Then I show them the Yoga Joes and they seem to get the point after that. I see mostly Soldiers who tend to overdo their workout and their work throughout the day. When they are running out of time during PT in the morning, the first thing to go is stretch because they have to make more time for running. Stretch is important! Great training aid. Thank you.

The perfect conversation starter with my Veterans about self care and Yoga.
These guys are well packaged and well done. Just the same size as the traditional green army men of our childhoods. As a registered nurse working in a substance abuse treatment program at a Veterans Hospital, we're always looking for ways to not take ourselves too seriously, yet have serious conversations about self care, including yoga. These guys will fit the bill perfectly in my office to start those conversations. Thanks Brogamats!

These are the greatest! Got a couple in a shop in Seattle, then had to have the whole collection. Gave them to my wife for her birthday, 'cause she's always saying what she wants for b'day is "Peace on Earth." What a great contrast to the GI Joes! I'm not anti-military--got a lot of good friends in the services. But to me this is a wonderful symbol of the balance that is good to maintain in all things. Such a fun concept!

LOVE THESE!!! Amazing detail and who knew you could do yoga in full combat gear! ;) Brought them to my office (and I work for a premium yoga brand!) and people stopped in their tracks every time they saw them. So fun.

Joe in the Morning
The only thing I like to do in the morning is Yoga and G.I. Joe. Now that I have Yoga Joes, it's a fun morning every morning. Sometimes I like to imitate their positions (like the downward facing dog) and, although it can be a little rough starting out, Joe really give me the stretch I need to stay energized throughout the day.

These now live on a desk at an active Military base. I gave them as a gift and I understand they get quite a few double looks and chuckles!

Love these guys
Love these guys. My yoga studio had them at their front desk and I had to look them up once I got home. Went to google and typed in, "plastic toy soldiers yoga" and they came right up. Yoga Joes- what a great name! I have a habit of collecting random items for no other reason than the item is something that's unique/interesting/strange/makes me smile, etc. This falls right in line; I don't know what I'll do with them but they make me happy and that's pretty important. Right now, they're hanging out on my kitchen table, and they remind me to maintain my practice. Plus I got a nice email from the manufacturer, which made me feel even better about supporting this one may toy design company.

~Yoga Joes For All~
As I stare at this motley squad of well-minded peace loving green guys I can't help but thank Dan Abramson for his creativity. Well done sir!
If you remember playing with little green army dudes back in your not-so-distant childhood than this is a modern peaceful spin on those dudes. Personally, my squad rests on my desk and reminds me to get up and stretch throughout the day. If you need visual stimuli to motivate you to find that moment of inner peace or humor, than buy a squad of these guys from Dan at Brogamats. Heck buy two sets, if that's what it takes to get off your butt and enhance your calm.
