Sticky Yoga Mats €20

Yoga bags €10

Yoga Mat Harness €7.50

Cotton Mysore Yoga Rugs €30

These Indian made elegant and high quality, cotton yoga mats/rugs are tightly woven and were first used for Yoga practice in Mysore, a tropical city on the south west coast of India (which is why they are often referred to as Mysore Rugs). These mats are ideal for Ashtanga, Bikram or any sweaty yoga practice, where standard PVC mats may not provide enough traction.

These rugs can be used by themselves or in conjunction with a sticky mat (our PVC mat above being perfect of course!). This will add extra cushion for sitting postures and better traction and stability for standing postures by absorbing perspiration and moisture that would otherwise make your mat slippery.

Traction on these cotton mats is activated by moisture build up from sweat or water, so at the start of your practice it is best to give the mat a light spray with water.
