The Benefits of Using a Manuka Yoga Mat

A key component to the practise of yoga is a good yoga mat. These lightweight strips of material are generally made of PVC, plastic, or some combination of these substances. These materials are generally not very environmentally friendly, and also have a number of other drawbacks. However, the Manuka range of yoga mats are biodegradable and 100% recyclable.

One of the main problems with yoga mats is that they tend to get dirty quite quickly. They are placed on the floor or ground during practise, and they are also transported from place to place frequently. The plastic based yoga mats tend to become stained quite quickly, and can often end up smelling of sweat and other odours. However the Manuka yoga mat is manufactured using an advanced close cell technology. This prevents moisture from being absorbed into the mat. It also has anti-bacterial properties, which kill off many bad odours.

When standard yoga mats become wet, they can sometimes become slippy. This is of course very dangerous when practising yoga, as the practitioner can easily be injured if he or she falls when holding a difficult position. Due to the nature of the materials used the Manuka yoga mat is non-slip. However it still provides full support to the joints and it is designed to be shock absorbent.

The Manuka yoga mat measures 61cm x 183cm x 5mm, and it is available in a range of colours. It can be purchased at manukalife.com/product/EYM01/Eco+Yoga+Mat. Other Manuka products which may also be of interest include the Eco Yoga Towel and the Eco Body Band.
