Happy Summer darlings! Today I am sharing my love and appreciation for the perfect yoga mat. Seeing how I have reviewed and shared what feels like hundreds of facial masks and serums (or balms as my hubby likes to call all my products), it’s about time I talk about a very important item that I use regularly and am crazy about. My yoga mat! Whether you practice yoga every day or a few times a month, the perfect mat is critical to a great yoga practice. I have been through an embarrassing amount of mats in my yoga journey. What seems like a simple piece of fabric is unfortunately not so simple. I have used Lululemon’s “The Mat” most often for the last couple years, but much like the perfect face mask, I am always on the lookout for the next best thing!
Yellow Willow Yoga is an Australia-based, 100% biodegradable, machine washable, and super chic yoga mat brand. The yoga mats are developed from a combination of natural eco-tree rubber and soft micro-fiber suede fabric which is made from recycled plastic bottles. It was love at first sight when my mat arrived in the mail because it is so so cute! In my past mat experiences the cute versions stink to practice on. Not this gem! The mat has great grip and is super absorbent. Even my Lulu mat that is designed for hot sweaty yoga gets slippery during a tough practice. No matter how grossly much I sweat (and I’m proud to be a sweater y’all), this beauty stays dry and crazy comfortable. And I swear my handstands have been stronger than ever since using it! Shop this epic mat which comes in a variety of fun patterns at Shopbop or the Yellow Willow Yoga site. Use the code 10YellowWillow for 10% off your mat when shopping on their site. I can’t recommend this beautifully made mat enough!
Much love, and yoga on!
