The first thing I noticed using this mat is that it was tough. I have been enjoying learning to use my strength to hold poses and not on the stickiness of the mat. I do spray it down when I need to and that helps but I am loving working on my strength. Plus the fabric is beautiful, I love practicing on natural, lovely fibers. It has brought me joy. Thank you! I use it every day!
I am absolutely in love with my rainbow Chakra Energy yoga mat. It is soooo soft and comfortable, and makes me feel even more inspired to practice. Plus it brightens up the whole space, and is clearly made with so much love!
There was something almost magical about opening the box. The scent, the special Mat bag, the extra touch of the Soap Nuts. They care. About each element of what makes this mat your Life Mat. That's how I'm looking at it. This mat will go everywhere with me. The vibrant colors will remind me of WHY I practice, the grip rows remind me of WHERE I am in space, the scent of the herbs so lovingly chosen to dye my mat with will help me stay PRESENT in my practice and keep me GROUNDED. Its an investment. But I've been coming to see more and more that good investments pay off. And this was a GREAT investment. Namaste, OkoLiving. And thank you.
I have been using a Manduka mat for 10 years since I started practicing. It’s in great shape but is difficult to travel with especially when I want to practice outdoors or while traveling. This mat feels amazing both outdoors and indoors and I feel so much closer to the earth when I practice outdoors. I also feel my muscles, especially my core, tighten and strengthen more in asanas than when I’m using my manduka mat. It is very light yet comfortable And its easy to fold and roll. I have not yet washed it but it seems very durable thus far. Would definitely recommend!
