If you’re thinking of treating yourself to a new yoga mat why not go organic? It makes sense — yoga is about unity, harmony, and learning to tread lightly. Cutting out chemicals and mass production can have a major positive impact on your physical health, the environment, and your mental attitude. Think of it as an opportunity to spring clean. As the EcoYoga website puts it:
Practicing on a shiny glossy plastic mat made as cheaply as possible for maximum profit we view as the antithesis of yoga. It is a simple gesture to practice on a mat created with yoga in mind from renewable resources.
