My Eco Yoga Mat Review
My yoga practise has always been an inner journey and I never really paid much attention to the yoga mat I used or even the props and other accessories that I could utilise to enhance my practise. However over recent months I have taken the time to explore the various yoga mats out there as well as the role of being a consumer and how that can help me to evolve in my journey of Self exploration. I have also wanted to take a more conscious role in the type of consumerism I participate in including purchasing products that are environmentally friendly and backing brands that support the well-being of the planet. I decided to put together this blog post to share some of the Eco friendly yoga mats that are available. I often tell my students that yoga is a journey to the Self. Using these mats in my own practice I have realised that they individually have characteristics that can enhance the journey of your practise. It's almost like each mat is like Aladdin’s magic carpet which can take you on an adventure! Therefore depending on your needs, requirements and the experience you would like to pursue you can choose your mat accordingly. Or if your budget allows you can purchase a variety of mats to choose from each time you practise. With the recent developments of classes going online and an emphasis on a home yoga practise due to the Corona-virus a new mat may also give you the motivation and space to develop a regular yoga practice. I'd like to note here that this blog is not sponsored and I used my own money to purchase each mat. I also reached out to each company to provide my students and followers with a discount. For which details are listed below. I would also love to hear your feedback on using the mats in the comments below or do tag me into your Instagram pictures and videos.
