This color shows dirt and stains pretty easily Otherwise- and either way Never going back
I was tired of sticking to the mat in heated yoga and I've realized I much prefer the feeling of natural fibers. This mat was perfect for both and improved my practice in ways I didn't anticipate. The ribbing on either end gives me more confidence in my spacing and helps me make sure that my hands are in line with each other, which solved my shoulder pain because I had never noticed my tendency to slightly twist before. The ribs also help me be more mindful of using my whole hand and not overloading my wrists. I would 100% buy this again! I haven't had any problems with stretching or sliding, and the rubber backing feels secure on wood floors. It was an easy transition from a synthetic mat to this rug and I'm glad I took the plunge.
I’ve been practicing yoga for the past 20 years, and instructing yoga for over a decade. Using this yoga rug has been an incredible experience! The softness of the fibers, the woven grip lines for hands and feet, the beautiful color, the infusion of anti inflammatory herbs- all work together to truly elevate the practice. I’ve found this yoga rug to be helpful in drawing my attention back to my body as it requires a certain level of attention to stay rooted. The rug stays in place on my carpet (which was originally why I sought out this product). It’s a joy to practice on and has renewed my own at home practice, which had become a bit tired. I look forward to being on this rug and feel connected and tuned in to the purer forms of yoga!
Mat is a lovely color and I like the grips at each end. I am still getting used to this type of mat, but so far so good. I am glad I purchased it!
