Anyone who has ever done yoga on a substandard mat will tell you that what's underneath does make a difference. Yoga mats from Yellow Willow manage to fuse together both beauty and performance while using materials that will make you proud.
The mats feature a combination of tree rubber and a micro suede fabric made from recycled plastic bottles to produce a product that firmly grips the floor and is super-absorbent of perspiration. Perfect for any type of yoga or Pilates, Yellow Willow mats are known for their unique top layer of fabric (the micro-suede), which offers towel-like comfort, yet it will allow you to stick any pose. The mats are biodegradable, with no latex, silicone, PVC, toxic glue or phthalates used in their creation. You can throw them in the washer for a good cleaning, but a quick spray with a gentle cleaner will keep the mat feeling fresh for months. Get ride of the chemicals, glues, and other unnatural products found in many yoga mats, and give this eco-friendly product a try. Most importantly, you'll feel secure in even the most difficult poses. Or at least you won't have the mat to blame.
