I didn’t sleep last night.
Not a single minute.
So, when it was time to actually get out of bed and function today, I knew I had to do something. I got up and laid out my new Aurorae Classic Yoga Mat and started a yoga video. I knew this was how I wanted to start my day.
Yoga has been a new experience for me. I started about 5 weeks ago and fell in love from the first session. Yoga not only relaxes the body but also the mind. As a mom, wife, writer, nurse, and just plain busy person, I need that. I need the stress relief. I need yoga.
I used my Aurorae mat last weekend at my class, but sadly forgot my new Micro Fiber Long Yoga Towel. I also forgot my Yoga Slip Free Resin Bag. Both of those things were needed for my Hatha class that involves a lot of sweating and heat. I needed to grip my mat better. So, this morning, I put my Micro Fiber Long Yoga Towel out and got started. I love how the mat is memory foam. My hands and feet are able to “plant” and I feel comfortable throughout the whole session. Even when on my hands and knees (a position that has caused pain for me in the past), I was comfortable!
I loved it! I love how the towel not only keeps me from slipping but also absorbs some of that sweat. You know what else it would be great for though? It would be great for the wind-down portion of yoga when my body temperature rapidly drops. It would be a fantastic cover at that time.
So, here’s a bit about the Classic Yoga Mat from Aurorae.
- It is 72″ x 24″ x 1/4″ with Focal Point Icon. That Focal Point Icon is great for helping you stay in a position and keep your balance (it helps to focus on one point to balance better)
- Aurorae offers several colors of their Classic Yoga Mat, these colors are chosen by you to Define your Inner Self.
- The 1/4″ thickness provides you with our specially designed memory foam that’s thick enough to protect your knees and joints, while still allowing you to grip the floor. This Mat will mold to your hands and feet to allow you to grip the floor any indentations will disappear after time and use.
- This Mat has been SGS approved. The world’s largest testing, inspection and Verification Company for certification and your safety.
Aurorae sends you useful information with each purchase of a mat. They will give you tips to break in and maintain your mat. This is an investment that I want to last so I appreciate their helping me keep it in great shape.
The Micro Fiber Long Yoga Towel is also 72″ x 24″ so it fits perfectly on top of your yoga mat. Like I mentioned, it is perfect for soaking up an perspiration and helps prevent slipping during your poses. The towel is machine washable and is a beautiful, thick material that is sure to last.
I would encourage you to give Aurorae products a try if you are starting out or are a seasoned pro at yoga. I have seen and felt many different mats and towels and these are among the best I have come in contact with. I love my mat and can’t wait for my next yoga session to use it!
