I use this yoga mat approx. 5 days a week for hot yoga, and it has improved my practice so much. Very happy with this investment! No worrying about a towel and slipping all over the place. It dries easily between uses if I lay it flat for a few minutes when I get home. I look forward to trying some cork blocks!
There are so many mats on the market - and certain people swear by name brands just because they are name brands. But if you seek to be better at your practice everyday, the 42 Birds Cork yoga mat is the best assist you can have. The Imperial Eagle is perfect if you need that little extra support for your knees, but the cork absorbs sweat and moisture without getting in the way of your flow. It dries quickly and has no odor. It is easily the best tool on the market to be a better yogi everyday. I can't tell you how this mat will change your life and do good at the same time.
I LOVE this mat. I started with “The Robin” which I also loved but for regular use the the studio I needed a bit more cushion and this mat has just that. I have enough support that my practice doesn’t take a toll on my joints but it’s also firm enough to easily allow for stable balance poses. I love how much more my hands and feet grip into this mat, I typically had to wet my previous mat to allow for increased grip. This mat is nonslip from the second I roll it out. I love that I feel connected to the earth thought the natural cork material, helps to further ground me in my practice. Definitely worth every penny. I plan to return to this one again if ever my current one Needs to be replaced. 10/10 would recommend 🙌🏻
By far the best mat I’ve ever had. Love the feel.
great on all counts!
