Over the weekend, I quickly mentioned the fact that I took some time to incorporate a little yoga back into my life. I know I say this every.single.time, but I really wish I would do it more often. I just love how relaxed and stretched out I feel afterward…even if I do need to work on being able to really “zone out” (my mind is still going a mile a minute during all of those sun salutations).
Lucky for me, I had a little extra motivation this time around to get into some downward dogs, thanks to my brand new yoga mat.
A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by Aurorae Yoga and was asked if I would be interested in testing out one of their yoga mats. I was most definitely interested (I’ll show ya why in a second), and early last week, my package arrived, complete with an Aurorae Northern Lights yoga mat + yoga mat wash.
So for those of you who have been reading for a while, you may remember when I showed you all my horrendous yoga mat. That was back in June.
We’re now in April, ten months later, and guess which yoga mat I had still been using…
Oh gosh, I’m embarrassed. Is that thing not atrocious looking or what?
Well thankfully, that old pink thing is now out in the trash and I’m sporting my brand new Aurorae mat. Honestly, I would have been excited over any new yoga mat, but this mat is absolutely great.
For one, it’s an extra long length (72 inches) so I didn’t feel like my limbs were hanging off the ends the whole time. It feels much thicker and softer than my old mat (5mm), which is much easier on the joints, absorbing impact better. All of the Aurorae mats are also made of a PER Eco Safe Material, are Biodegradable and Phthalates free.
So not only do I love the feel of the mat, but I think the look of it is absolutely beautiful. The Aurorae Northern Lights yoga mats were actually created to replicate the phenomenon that is the Northern Lights, and no two mats are exactly the same.
In addition to that, the mat also came with a little booklet with information on their products, including a couple pages of sun salutations and yoga poses.
I really love everything about this yoga mat, and I’m hoping it will serve as a good motivator to keep me coming back to my yoga practice. Who knows, maybe I’ll even try another hot yoga class with it?
But honestly, as soon as I tried it out, I knew it was too great of a product to not be able to share with you. So I got in touch with the company again and asked if they’d be willing to let me spread the wealth a little more, and they said yes! So…
