In search of a good yoga mat

rubber mat
When practicing yoga, the most important element is a good mat. There are cheaper, more expensive mats made of PVC, rubber ... you can really get lost in it all. I asked you for help on Instagram (click), because I didn't know what thickness to choose. Today I come to help choosing a good yoga mat, because it is not as easy as it seems.
When I started my apprenticeship I did not think too much about the mat and chose the first better one in the store, which was described as "yoga mat". It was a mistake, or rather money spent for nothing. Already in the first class, when I proudly walked with my yoga mat in my hand, it turned out that she was hopeless. Unfortunately, when buying I did not check whether it is non-slip.
I stopped going to group classes, but I still practice yoga at home. It is a great form of relaxation for me, as well as a way to keep figure and feel good. It does not matter if you practice yoga at home or in group classes - you need to have a good mat on which you will feel stable.

A good mat is the basis of yoga practice. Thanks to it, we will avoid the risk of injury while performing asanas.

I started looking and browsing the internet until I finally decided to buy a rubber mat
YOGA MAT Eco Pro 4,0mm, 185cm x 60cm , which allows me to remain stable even on hot days. The mat on both sides has the same good grip.
The mat is suitable for relaxing yoga, in the case of dynamic yoga practice you have to choose a different model. The Yoga Mat Eco Pro mat is made of 100% natural rubber. It is free of chemicals and allergens. Its structure ensures excellent adhesion even in the case of excessive sweating of hands or feet.
The only thing that can annoy at the beginning is the fact that everything sticks to the mat. This is not surprising in the case of ecological mats, for which no means to prevent static electricity were used. Fortunately, after each washing the mat this phenomenon decreases.
A good mat is a purchase for years, so you should add and buy a mat that is of good quality. You can read about how to start practicing yoga here.

2015 Christmas wishlist

2015 Christmas wishlist

1. Zoeva brushes - a set of brushes has already appeared on the occasion of the previous wishlist. Unfortunately, I still haven't become their owner 🙁

2. Phenome Warming body butter - warming body butter with ginger or Pat & Rub enveloping body butter (available in Sephora). Phenome butter I used it a few years ago and I was totally enchanted with it. I also feel like trying out Pat & Rub. Apparently it smells crazy.

3. Quilted wallet - My wallet with Orsay is falling apart. Some time ago I saw a nice quilted wallet with TchiboI'm curious how it looks live and how much space it has inside. I don't know why, but I love quilted wallets.

4. Breo massager - Recently I have terrible backache. I could use it this massager (preferably in a set with scalp massagerwhich would stimulate my onions to grow)

5. Glam Glow, Thirstymud ™ Hydrating Treatment - I've heard so many positive reviews about Glam Glow that I'd like to try this moisturizing wonder.

6. Yoga mat - my mat bought in TK Maxx is nice, but unfortunately my hands slip on them. I am looking for a good mat that has good grip. In spring I would like to come back to yoga class. I felt great then!

7. Chanel Rouge Noir 18 nail polish - beautiful color. I associate this shade with cherry in chocolate. Live is even more beautiful. I am curious as with coverage - whether one layer or two is enough.
