Making a conscious decision to use products made of organic materials is a great way to direct your efforts towards preserving our planet. This decision not only aids in producing less waste, but also by providing a natural surface for your skin and body to practice on.
You may already have a yoga mat, or one in mind, but maybe it’s not the right one for you. How do you know?

We are here to help you make this choice.
We breathe constantly, it’s what we do. We cannot make ourselves stop breathing, except to only hold our breath for a few minutes, thankfully. However, what we can control is how we breathe.
