Your perfect YOGA PARTNER: YOGA MAT


YOGA is synonymous to good health and good health is only possible with dedication and consistency in following the fitness routine.  It's not easy to be up on time each and every day, we need something to keep us motivated and such partner is none other than our yoga mat.  Yes, Yoga is incomplete with these vital things, firstly a dedication towards Yoga, will power to perform the Yoga consistently and more important the Yoga partner without which you cannot start the Yoga is a Yoga Mat on which one performs Yoga. A yoga mat beside you will be a constant reminder to stay committed it is your yoga partner which cares for your well-being. Yoga Mat is an essential part of the Yoga as each Asana or exercise performed on it makes your Yoga Session more memorable.



We all are well aware that Yoga when performed outdoors with a fresh breeze swaying and early morning sun-rays sparkling with freshness spreads an aura that is an ecstatic platform set to perform yoga. Selection of an apt yoga mat, your partner is very essential to perform the yoga postures with great care. There are various options of mats to choose from a cotton made Yoga Mat, plastic yoga mat, handloom made yoga mat.

Personally I like the Cotton Yoga Mat over other mats; here are few of my pointers for it.

Let me share 4 reasons to use Cotton Yoga Mat

1.    Breathable Mat: One of the important aspects of Yoga is breathing, which makes one’s body calm and relaxed. Mind- body coordination is best achieved when the breathing is perfect. Cotton mats are toxic free and are free from any pollutants.

2.   Perfect Grip: While performing various asana one has to hold a posture for few seconds and what one needs a perfect grip from the Yoga Mat. If mat cannot provide a grip that is required then a major injury could take place after the fall on the ground. This mat provides great stability and has anti skid quality.

3.   Environment Friendly: Using an environment friendly product should be the motto of one’s life as in this way we are contributing towards the environment and making things stable. The cotton Yoga mat also serves towards the environment by being made of natural fabric and if it is to be disposed off, then we are doing no harm to the nature.

4.   Long lasting Mat: Since it is made from natural fibre, this mat lasts for many years and is less worn out in all types of weather conditions. And it is easily washable at home too plus one can enjoy uninterrupted yoga sessions on clean and breathable mat with fresh fragrances flowing around than the stingy plastic smell.

My search for such Yoga Mat ends with Roque Handicrafts where they produce Cotton –Eco friendly Yoga Mat in vibrant colors. You can even check out these mats on leading online store Amazon or directly at their website Roque Handicrafts.
