YogaEarth is an online retailer of organic and sustainable products for healthy living. Their products have been developed by over 250 yoga teachers in 35 different states with the intent of harmonizing an individual's lifestyle with the teachings of yoga. Their products include:
One of their most popular products is the Keen-wah bars, which are completely organic, vegan, and gluten-free. They are available in three flavors (chocolate chia, coconut almond and cayenne cinnamon) and are made with quinoa, a whole grain that is one of nature's highest sources of natural protein.
YogaEarth also carries a variety of accessories that are eco-friendly and made from sustainable materials including:
YogaEarth was founded in 2008 by a community initiative in Venice, California. The goal of the initiative was to establish a harmonious synergy between the lessons of yoga classes and the student's lifestyle outside of class. Unlike other nutritional systems on the market, YogaEarth products are specifically designed for those who practice yoga.
The interesting thing about YogaEarth is how they develop their products, which are focused on balance and vitality. All products are co-designed by 250 yoga instructors in 35 different states, and customers can vote on new product ideas.

“Super tasty, not too sweet. The chocolate is great, the crunchiness of the quinoa crisps inside is super awesome. 6grams of protein and that priceless sensation of eating chocolate and then knowing it's really good for you! Wow!” ~ Sensei Donato
“Oh my goodness, oh my goodness . .chocolate and quinoa in one place! It doesn't get much better! Thank you, YogaEarth!” ~ Jennifer Galardi
"I really enjoyed this. I mixed with water at work. At first I wasn't crazy about it, but after the third or fourth drink, I really started to like it." ~ insidejoe
"The Keen-Wah Decadence bar is CRAZY GOOD. The first thought I had when biting into it was Rocky Road ice cream!--SUPER rich & chocolately, and you get this explosion of textures in your mouth of chunks of almond, and the crunchiness of chia seeds. The chocolate is just right, not too sweet, but sweeter than dark chocolate. The best part is, THE INGREDIENTS ARE ALL ORGANIC, Gluten-Free, VEGAN, and Non-GMO." ~ Read More...
"I just ate my first Keen-Wah Decadence bar and it was OUT OF THIS WORLD. This bar stands head and shoulders above any protein bar because it tastes just like dessert. In fact I would have been completely satisfied after a meal having a bar like this.
The chocolate is dark and rich and to top it all off all of the ingredients are vegan...SCORE! If you are contemplating a protein bar to try and I would highly suggest this one make your list." ~ Rachel @ My Naturally Frugal Family "Rachel J"
"The Chia bar may just be the best vegan bar I have ever eaten! Firstly, I was thoroughly impressed with the texture: The combination of Almond Butter and Coconut Nectar as the first 2 ingredients, is heavenly. At 195 Calories per bar, it isn't wimpy. A healthy dose of good fat, great Carbs and a respectable 6 grams of protein are on offer here. But nutrition aside, what matters the most is taste. No matter how healthy or unhealthy a bar is, it must taste good." ~ Read More...
