I have been using the mat now for 3 months and I could not be happier. It has an amazing grip, and most of all it just feels so natural and good under my feet. Would not trade it for a synthetic mat ever again!
My classes tend to get a little sweaty and these mats are perfect for holding your grip, stopping you from slipping, keeping solid foundations and joints safe through your yoga practise.
As a Yoga teacher, over the years, I had the opportunity of trying many different Yoga mats but nothing comes close to CorkYogis’ one. Grip is amazing (even better when you sweat – furthermore antibacterial), I feel grounded (as if practicing in nature – and sustainable!) and, beyond all of that, it allows me to actually (!) put in practice the Yamas. Highly recommended!
I have been teaching in the hot studio for 7 years, and so far the Corkyogis mat has been my favourite. I feel secure in the knowledge that even when I’m demonstrating a tricky transition or balance that I won’t slip. The soft texture of the mat means that I can move smoothly without effort, and the absorbent quality is excellent so the mat stays dry. Even though I’ve used the mat for a few months the hygienic surface of the cork seems to stay clean. I use the mat in both hot and non hot studios and it works equally well in both. Well done CorkYogis for creating a lovely looking mat that is as ecological as it is practical, I love it! It gets lots of admiring comments too!
I'm a yoga teacher and I’m 100% sold. On a technical level – I LOVED my practice. Way better than a Manduka mat. Sweat evaporates. Grip stronger. Smell nicer. Handstanding made easier.
This mat is one of the best purchases I've ever made. I don't think I can go back to non-cork mats ever. It's perfect, the grip is great, it's easy to clean and keep as new, and the touch is so warm and natural that it makes my yoga experience much more connecting. When I step on it, I feel home. Honestly I don't know anyone with one of these that doesn't swear by it.
Beautiful mats. They look lovely and feel great. I am happy on every level . I bought 3 last year . I run a studio and would love that everyone had one of these mats. Love them in the ecological sense as well as the appearance and feel. Worth the price.
Would highly recommend investing in one of these if you are starting to practice regularly. The weight means the mat isn't sliding across the floor and cork gives great grip for hands and feet. I've had mine for over a year and it's still in great condition with just minimal cleaning.
I adore this yoga mat. Went looking for a sustainable mat and found cork yogis as they use cork and recycled rubber, and as an added bonus it is also naturally non-slip - I have very sweaty palms and used to hate doing downward dogs as my hands would slid out in from of me. Now this never happens and the mat is naturally antibacterial or can be cleaned lightly with a mix of water and vinegar. I use it daily and couldn't be happier with the experience and the good causes/business practices that I know my money is supporting!
I love the grasp I get during my practice, it gets even better when you sweat!
The mat feels good and smells good too! (Could be thicker)
I use it daily and I highly recommend it !
Absolutely love this mat, it's so lightweight and rolls up very tightly so it's great for travel. I have never had an issue slipping with this mat and I love that it's sustainable and the brand supports women in India, exactly what yoga should be about!
