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!
Cork is a natural product filled with micro air holes which stops sweat pooling on the mat.
The CorkYogis Travel mat is perfect to get back in the studio safely. Use as topper to studio mats and let cork's natural antimicrobial surface keep you safe. At 1kg this is truly a mat to take anywhere. Pick one up and go!
