First time using a cotton mat (or is it a rug?). There are growing pains that come with it and I’m sure I will come to a point where I can’t imagine using anything else.
Treat yourself! I love practicing on my OKO mat. I feel more connected to the Earth, grounded and home. It feels more natural stepping onto this mat than any other. Also, when your head is down say in child’s pose, I feel more connected and the ability to surrender is greater than on other types of mats. Thanks OKO!
So far, I like it. I have to spray water on the ends for some poses because I am not quite strong enough to feel like I’m not going to slip. I like the color, length, soft ridges and the rubbery bottom side, and I love that it is made from natural materials and dyes. Hoping it will last a long time, because it was not inexpensive.
I love my new yoga mat! It feels so comfortable and works so well. It is both soft and sturdy. I love the quality and the design. I especially love how the woven lines at each end of the mat help me to easily and correctly align my hands and feet in my yoga positions to maximize my workout.
