My yoga studio is a teacher training studio - which means we have a lot of teachers that come and stay with us for ~3 months (after official Bikram training) and then move on or go home.

Two teachers I really like are headed home soon, one is headed back to Ireland and the other to Israel. The studio manager's birthday is also in a few weeks and I've been trying to think of some good ideas to give them to show my appreciation (and in the case of the ones who are leaving - things that might not be too hard to take home with them).

Please help! I don't feel like food is a particularly good option, and flowers won't work for the ones headed home.

i'm a knitter so that makes my ideas pretty predictable.
BUT i would guess that for either one a good agenda-planner type thing might be helpful, since they will be chock-full of classes in a blossoming new career. also, with the new school year you can probably get some decent planners that actually fit the year and aren't half-used-up.

Maybe a gift card to someplace they can buy yoga stuff (lululemon, etc)?

My standard gift for stuff like this is either a token memory item, like a t-shirt or bag with a reminder of the community they have been a part of, or a gift card to an easy to like place (Starbucks/sephora). For the ones going far away, maybe something with your local flavor on it would be appreciated.

For Christmas last year, a few of us got our yoga teacher a fancy notebook (as she sometimes reads meditations/inspiration out to us) and a scented candle.

i like the gift card idea as well. i haven't been on in a while, but if etsy has gift cards that might be really neat! an itunes gift card might be useful as well, most teachers have a lot of yoga music they download for classes and such.
