I've been practicing yoga on and off for a few years now, but this Summer I'm really wanting to make yoga more of a priority in my life. I completely wore out my last yoga mat, so I was really happy to have the opportunity to try out Gaiam's 3mm Classic Printed 3mm Yoga Mat in Citron Wave* ($21.98). I brought this mat along with me on a recent weekend at the cottage, and practiced some yoga on the dock - talk about relaxing!
This mat is fairly thin, at 3mm, but it is still quite cushiony and very comfortable. The non-slip surface is a huge bonus, and I also love that this mat is made without latex or the 6Ps. The Citron Wave design is really pretty, but it's also not too girly or attention seeking. Dylan occasionally borrows my yoga mat to do his stretches on before working out or going for a run, and he's been enjoying this mat for those purposes. This mat also comes with a free online yoga class to get you started and motivated.
Are you a yogi? If so, I'd love to hear of your favourite yoga classes, online yoga tutorials, etc.! Have you ever checked out Gaiam's full selection of yoga equipment?
