our story


We believe that when we embrace our natural state of well-being, we can achieve anything we desire.

That's why we’re committed to making sustainable self-care accessible to everyone.




getting off the treadmill

Made by Yoke was born from a desire to slow down, go within and connect to people and places that fill us up.

Our founder, Tamara, found herself busy, exhausted, and running on empty. She was putting in high pace New York City weeks with zero downtime, sacrificing her total well-being for external success and she was tired of being tired.

So, she got off the treadmill, moved to Australia and studied Ayurveda. Ayurveda changed her life and her understanding of wellness; it allowed her to connect to her inner healer and to trust that intuitive guidance lives within.

She came back with renewed energy, faith and a business. Whether you feel like Tamara did or you love your busy life, our goal is to make science based self-care easy for you to integrate into your everyday routines.

Everything you find here has been intentionally curated by yoga teachers, meditation teachers or wellness practitioners committed to helping you connect you to your best self.

Our hope is that the products we curate and create inspire you to embrace your natural state of well-being - and find the space and stillness to listen to its calling.


developed in practice

Tamara’s integrative wellness practice, Yoke Holistic, helps to ensure that both our products and stories come from a place of authentic knowledge and research so you’re getting the best tools to implement in your own rituals.

Based in California, Yoke Holistic focuses on alternative and preventative healthcare - built upon a proven blend of Aromatherapy, Ayurveda and herbalism - to guide clients through sustainable, long-term wellness plans.

We take this expertise and knowledge and infuse it through all of our products and articles, ensuring there is science and proven success behind all of our self-care practices.

science based self-care

The 5,000-year-old science of Ayurveda believes that wellness comes from the balanced integration of the mind, body, spirit, and environment. Together, these four aspects create a holistic sense of well-being.  

Ayurveda, and holistic medicine, teach that when you look at all these moving parts together, instead of as separate entities, you can find a deeper level of overall health, a more sustainable level of wellness and, ultimately, a more satisfying life.

Made by Yoke distills this traditional science of wellness through Ayurveda and has created a platform where you can find products and inspiration to enhance your personal wellbeing - mind, body, spirit and home - and create the space within for a more satisfying life.


the golden thread

Our core values of personal awareness, self-empowerment, and connection are the golden thread that runs through everything we do.

We chose to work with partners that share our holistic set of values and are dedicated to fair trade, fair wages and being mindful of the environment.


the environment

We're currently working towards carbon-neutrality by offsetting our carbon emissions through investment in clean energy and carbon reduction efforts.

Offsetting carbon emissions is not a long-term solution but it is one way that we can meaningfully contribute to the fight against global warming and protecting our planet today.

giving back

We believe in the power of giving back and connect with communities through our Yoke Global Giving Foundation. Every year the team selects an organization to donate a percentage of our annual proceeds to.

This year, we chose a national nonprofit that gives young women of color the tools for empowerment, finding their own voices and the confidence to develop their skills and thrive in the workplace.
