Happy New Year to all of my readers here at FDTDC! A lot of people set goals for themselves at the beginning of a new year. Why not set a goal to make for a happier, healthier YOU! Yoga can be stress relieving, and great for both your mind and body!
I recently started doing yoga for beginners I was excited to get started but I was even more excited to find a good yoga mat. Seeing as I am new to yoga, I have never had to choose a yoga mat. Aurorae was very helpful in recommending a yoga mat that would be perfect for me.
As this is my first mat I would have to say that I am very pleased with the one I received. These Mats are very long and very cushioned. Like I said I am very new to yoga and so some of the positions I am learning I am sure I am not doing them exactly how you are supposed to but thanks to my yoga mat I have the right amount of cushion under my knees and feet therefore I am not hurting myself as I am learning because it absorbs the impact. The thickness of this mat is 5mm and length is 72″ x 24″ wide.
I love that my mat is not only beautiful but comfortable as well. Aurorae had so many different designs to choose from. They are all unique, colorful and some of them have beautiful artwork on them that illuminates energy. When I unrolled my mat there was a slight curl at the end but it does not get in the way or bother me. I am only 5ft tall so it’s not even like I use my whole mat but it has not went away like I was hoping it would. The mat is easy to roll back up and wipe clean when finished. I just simply soak up any perspiration on my mat with the free Rosen bag that came with the yoga mat and wipe with a microfiber cloth.
In my opinion so far I think that this mat will last me a very long time. I love the thickness, I love that it is slip free and the Rosen bag comes in handy before and after each practice. I would highly recommend Aurorae yoga mat for both beginners and pro yogis! Aurorae sells the best reviewed yoga mats, yoga apparel , and yoga and meditation accessories online.
