My Cork yoga mat arrived with a beautiful Indian style yoga bag and a spray bottle to wet the mat. I was excited to try my new cork mat out! Cork is an amazing material that is eco-friendly and sustainable. With a cork mat the grip increases when wet. So instead of sliding around with sweaty hands, you keep a good grip throughout your yoga practice. Their mats are also self-cleaning!
After trying a few vinyasas, downward dogs and jump backs on the mat, I found that the mat really does have a good grip! The mat is very solid and durable. It is probably the most sturdy mat I’ve practiced on.
The mat is quite heavy, so more weight to carry it around from class to class, but you would still carry it if you love using your own yoga mat. This is great mat for your regular home practice. The extra weight of the mat is what you would expect from a strong sturdy mat that will be with you for years of practice.
