Yoga helps the body to relax and lowers stress levels. It provides three important elements – meditation, breathing and poses which all help to regulate your heart rate and reduce stress levels. Lowering the heart rate calms the body, enabling you to respond to stress more positively.

are our own brand made specifically for Recycled Mats. These yoga mats are comprised of 100% biodegradable and recyclable rubber with a micro-fibre suede top which ensures extra grip. Naturally sourced, the rubber used in our mats contains no silicone, toxic glue, or other harsh chemicals and unlike other synthetic rubber or foam, it's hard-wearing and won’t retain moisture.
Our two NEW cork yoga mats are made of a high-quality cork top lining on a natural rubber base. Cork is a material that's safe to use, environmentally friendly, and lightweight. With its unique antimicrobial properties, these cork yoga mats are ideal for sweaty hot yoga and Bikram. They also come with a handy hessian carry strap, making them easy to carry and transport.
Energise your chakras by practising on the Chakras yoga mat which helps you to focus and connect with the specific colour and symbols featured.
Chakras are the circular vortexes of energy that are located at seven different points on the spinal column, and all the seven chakras are connected to the various organs and glands within the body. These chakras are responsible for distributing life force energy which is also known as Qi or Praana.
Also available with a cork top and natural rubber base is the Perfect Alignment yoga mat. This yoga mat with alignment marks helps to keep your body in the right position by watching the lines while you practise.
It assists in decreasing the load on joints and ligaments so that you feel steadier and avoid injury. It also helps you place your hands and feet properly and offers a guide for hip, arm, knee, and chest alignment.
Thickness is a personal choice – most yoga mats are between 4mm and 6mm. Whilst practicing yoga, you want to feel supported and cushioned but also get sufficient ‘feedback’ from the floor. You need to build your practice and confidence from the ground up. Yoga mats that are too thick will give you little to no feedback and may over challenge your balance, yoga mats that are too thin will not provide enough cushioning. All of our luxury, eco-friendly yoga mats are 5-6mm in thickness, non-slip and are perfect for yoga practices, pilates, and general exercise classes plus come with a handy hessian carry strap, making them easy to carry wherever your yoga takes you.
