I’ve used this for 5+ hot vinyasa classes & found it helps with core strength. In Downward Dog, I have to work a little harder to hold position. In stepping forward to Forward Fold, I have to lift my feet. And so on...
I love this yoga rug. Yes, it is more slip-prone than a rubber mat or one of the plastic ones in the market today. But the soft texture, beautiful color, gentle scent, and cozy place to lie in savasana more than balance that out. I teach 5+ classes per week and this has become my go-to mat. A little water spritz definitely helped before a rigorous practice. But this rug encourages me to slow down, listen to my alignment, and stay present. Love love love it.
this is literally the best yoga mat i've ever used. i don't slip, the material is soft but structured, it's easy to clean, pieces of the mat don't wear off... honestly everything about it is perfect. worth every cent.
It feels special to unroll this yoga rug and step onto it for the first time, and every time. It’s so soft and you can smell the herbs used to dye it. I love the color - it’s not a bright pink but more of a muted dusty pink, which is what I was hoping for. Knowing that actual humans used their hands and talent to make this makes it worth the price and has me feeling more in tune with the environment and the nature of practicing yoga. Also, it makes your muscles work harder and elevates your practice because you don’t have a rubber mat making it easier for you to get away with poor posture. :) This would make an amazing gift too!
