Being a Yoga teacher, I am on my mat most of the day either teaching or for my personal practice. I was looking for something warm and comforting for Yin/Restorative, that would still have great grip for Hatha and other Yang practices. I found it! The Yolana pure NZ wool mat has all of these features in one mat and seems to be holding up well under constant use. Definitely worth investing in!
Thank you Carrie, great to hear that this mat is such a great fit to your requirements.
This Mat is beautiful quality and looks lush . I wouldn’t however suggest it if your practice involves a lot of downward facing dog as the grip itself is quite slippery and doesn’t support the hands in this asana
Thank you for your review and feedback Madeleine. Regarding grip, it is indeed a mat better suited for seated poses, however, long term users of the mat have expressed that by engaging the core differently and building up to the downwards dog, grip can be achieved for this asana., although it will take time!
