Why did it take so long to create this mat?
- We wanted a surface that would not only be non-slip and sweat resistant…but we wanted it to be soft and smooth to the touch. (Many non-slip yoga mats are made out of rubber, and it’s not something you’d want to lay on over and over again)
- We wanted it to have just the right amount of cushion – easy on the knees and joints, but tough enough for balancing and standing postures. (Extra thick mats are often sponge-like during balancing postures, making standing exercises more difficult and putting your ankles at risk)
You wouldn’t believe how hard it was to create a mat that is both non-slip yet smooth AND supportive yet stable, without making a single sacrifice.
The secret is in our premium Portuguese cork…
We’ve been able to use 6 times more cork than anyone else while molding it into a surface that is not only unbreakable, but is also soft and smooth.
