A few years ago, I was attending a yoga class every week. Stretching, relaxing, practicing breathing. It was amazing. You can just feel more awake and energized by doing yoga as part of your daily routine. I started off those classes with a “cheap-o” mat I’d picked up at a discount store. It was thin, it wasn’t comfortable, and got sticky if your hands were the slightest bit sweaty. Needless to say, that mat didn’t last very long. If only I had known about Aurorae Synergy Yoga Mats back then – but at least I know them now.
I was recently sent an Aurorae Synergy Yoga Mat for review and it will absolutely make my yoga experience that much better. There are so many things about this mat that truly make it the best yoga mat I’ve ever used.
A Real Yoga Mat
First – it’s long. 72″ (or 6 feet) long. I’m not short but I’m not super tall either, and it was always kind of bothersome that sometimes my feet would hang off the edge of the mat. With the Aurorae Synergy Yoga Mat, yoga practitioners of all sizes can easily fit on the mat.
The mat itself is made with a very soft microfiber towel on top and a slip-free surface on the bottom. The towel top is great for absorbing sweat as well has keeping your hands and feet from slipping. You can also spray the top of the mat with some water to help with an even better grip. As the mat gets wetter – either from perspiration or water – it helps to keep grip even better. Another bonus is that the mat is machine washable, which is something I had wished I could do with previous mats, but couldn’t.
The Aurorae Synergy Yoga mats are 5mm thick. While I’ve had other mats that were thicker, they didn’t feel that thick. Almost as if they were mostly air so there wasn’t much cushion. With the Aurorae mat, there was noticeable padding that helped cushion my hands and feet.
I’m so glad to have discovered Aurorae Synergy Yoga Mats. They’ve really been designed for yoga students of all levels with the features that we’ve all secretly wished our mats had (like a focal point to help us concentrate and balance.)
If you or someone you know practices yoga, or you’re thinking about getting started, I’d definitely recommend you check out Aurorae Synergy Yoga Mats. Normally priced at $89.95, they’re currently on sale for just $59.95 on Amazon, and are available in 5 different colors.
