Yoga Mats (Not Weird Yoga Matt)

Just as every hero must have a foil, every yoga class must have that one weird hairy guy with the ponytail. Sure, his form is flawless and he doesn't talk much, but he just gives everybody the heebie-jeebies when he walks in. Is that a tattoo of Don Henley on his thigh?

Do you yoga? Why did you start?

I'm just hanging out, really.

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.

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.

Are these considered sticky yoga mats?

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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?

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.



Please support my husband's wootwatcher that he programmed. He is Active Duty Air Force and in college for programming. He made this because I couldn't find a woot watcher that was simple, and searched keywords. So he made it for us to use, but you will love it! Also Mobile Friendly now! with super refresh times!
~Thank you for your support!~

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

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.
