Yoga Mats (Not Weird Yoga Matt)


#1

#2

Do you yoga? Why did you start?


#3

My husband is a yoga instructor. He started when he was a teenager as a way to deal with the collapse of his parents marriage. It’s his way of talking to God and finding peace. I have Multiple Sclerosis and yoga helps keep me limber.


#4

I have problem on my neck, shoulders, and knees from accidents. So after going through a year of recovery and rehab, I start doing yoga and it really helps with my injuries.


#5

Are these considered sticky yoga mats?


#6

That one mat is for “Men”? It’s the only one I’d buy and I’m of the fairly girly variety. Pink… Meh!


#7

Pfft, marketing, buy it anyway. :slight_smile:


#8

Break stereotypes! Nobody will know but you anyway.

That said, it’s funny because I consider myself NOT of the girly variety but really like the blue butterfly mat. Ha.


#9

LOL. The “men’s” one is the only one I don’t like. I went for the mat with the best hover-note. I just wonder - who does yoga while eating guacamole? Maybe I should try that. Yummmmmmmm.


#10

I agree, stereotypes are socially constructed so by breaking them you are helping to free minds. Namaste.


#11

List price on the site is $17.99. I dunno…now that I don’t feel like I’m saving as much money, I’m not as inclined to click the buy button. Shows how dedicated I am to fitness, heh. I’ll mull it over while I eat another bowl of Super Sugar Crunchies.


#12

Precisely. I’m a man, and I ended up not getting the “Men’s” mat. I went for the red cherry blossom mat! What do marketers know anyway?


#13

love yoga! I am loving these cherry blossom mats.
I started yoga a few years ago because I love being so flexible and it is peaceful and a great stress/anxiety release.


#14

Does anyone know what these mats are composed of? Is it PVC foam? Are there phthalates or toxic chemicals contained in it?


#15

Just PVC foam.

My wife wanted me to join her a couple times a week in the classes she takes (4 a week for her) and I learned to enjoy it quite a bit.
I feel stronger and more flexible to be sure. And since we always go to the back - lovely, lovely young ladies. :slight_smile:

aaand this is why i always practice in the back row, as close to the wall as possible.

yuck.
