I recently won a yoga mat! I just gave Mosabee a Facebook like and viola; I won a mat. Try it and hopefully you will get one as well. The mat is the bSimple Purple and its fantastic. Its all eco-friendly and toxic free, so I am a happy and healthy yogini.
This mat is lightweight. maybe a pound or so, which makes it easy to transport. The surface is initially slippery but after a couple uses it has more grip. I use my yogitoes towel to reduce slippery surfaces anyway. Honestly, I love this mat. The weight makes it the easy to carry, its cushy but firm and just all around a pleasure to use.
I used it for my Pilates abdominal series so it offers enough support for my spine in flexion work. And it allows me to flow through Vinyasa without the mat moving underneath me. Luckily I won this mat but if I didn’t win it, I would have to buy it. It comes in different styles but I like a solid color so the pattern doesn’t distract me from my practice. Simplicity in design is best for focus.
Let me know if you have a favorite mat and what you use it for.
