Our cork yoga mats are naturally antimicrobrial.
Studies have shown that your average gym yoga mat can contain more germs and bacteria than a toilet seat! Our priority at CorkYogis is to keep yogis fit on their spiritual journey. Cork is organically antibacterial and antimicrobial so it provides the perfect clean and healthy surface for your yoga every time.
Yoga really is important for boosting the immune system especially if practiced on a daily basis. Inversions and poses which squeeze the muscles onto the long bones of the body, notably the thigh bone are good for stimulating the production of white cells, critical to immune response. As we are all now having to stay indoors during the Coronavirus lockdown, doing yoga is even more important for physical and mental well being.
As shown in studies such as this one titled "Evaluation of antimicrobial properties of cork" cork's antimicrobial properties are effective against two of the most common bacteria e-coli and staph aureus which is the bacteria that causes eczema in large numbers of people.
