First of all let me say. This yoga rug is beautiful. Just stunning to look at. I was reluctant to try it at first because they said there would be a learning curve to get used to it. But I finally used it in my private lesson and it was amazing. The ridges at the top and bottom help your feet and hands to stay steady. Down dog was no problem. No slipping at any time during my entire session. And I was on hard wood floors. And when I was face down on my rug in some poses the smell was so pleasant and soothing. I am in love and will never go back to a rubber yoga mat. I hope it never looses its soothing herbal smell. It was well worth the money. And funny thing ???? I think my poses are stronger and move defined with this yoga rug. And I feel stronger and more rejuvenated after my yoga practices now. Love this product and highly recommend it to anyone looking to give it a try. I promise. You won’t be sorry. I am beyond thrilled with it and will tell all my yogi friends about it.
Both my spouse and her bestie are very into yoga. This seemed the ideal holiday gift giving opportunity - something beautiful AND daily useful that is unique to one of the things that bring a smile to their day. And keeps giving back. They tell me it’s a bit harder at first to move to this mat over the rubberized ones, but it brings a bit more to their session in a good way.
Have been using mats for years, and I feel like they were negatively affecting my hormones and immune system. I definitely recommend switching to this rug! It takes a little more thought in hand and foot placement, but it's worth it! You definitely feel like you are engaging more of your muscles, etc., and aren't exposing yourself to damaging chemicals.
So beautiful !!! Perfection
