This month I met Vanessa Heerasing founder and curator of Bhavabox – The devoted yoga box to complement your lifestyle on and off the mat.
Over a beetroot, turmeric and lemon juice at the yummy juice bar in Yard Yoga, Forest Row, I was intrigued to discover more about this heart centred creation…
I love the name! What does Bhava mean?
Bhava means your existence, your sense of being, your unique individuality, and your vision of life. We curate beautiful products to complement your yoga journey in and out of the yoga studio, supporting your well-being and healthy lifestyle.
How did Bhavabox start out?
Bhavabox was born from the love of yoga. I love the way my practice makes me feel on and off the mat. Yoga has the amazing ability to take oneself through a transformation. It is a journey that brings new energy and vision amongst many other wonderful things. I was looking for products that had a special essence and so with mindful and heartfelt intent bhavabox was born, bringing the essence of beautiful gifts to you.

Tell us more about how yoga has influenced you?
Bhavabox was born from my love of yoga. After a few months of regular practice I noticed a change in the way I wanted to nurture myself and so the search began for natural products, oils, lotions and potions to support this journey. Following my heart and Rumi’s poignant words, I created the box to support the yoga lifestyle on & off your mat. The plus side is you don’t have to be a yogi to enjoy the bhavabox experience. A love of natural & holistic ways of living is all that is needed.
Do you have to be practising yoga to benefit from the box?
It is created for the yoga lifestyle to support you on & off your mat. So you don’t have to be a yogi to enjoy the bhavabox experience, a love of natural and holistic ways of living is all that is needed.
What is in the box?
All of our products are carefully sourced to bring you products that have been certified. Designed with the yogi lifestyle in mind, every box is curated with ethically sourced, cruelty-free products.We love working with our suppliers, have a look at some of the holistic brands we share with you.
What do you love most about what you do?
We create unique products for you that are great value. The parts I love are a combination of Giving – Supporting -Sourcing beautiful products and meeting inspiring like-minded people.
