Whether you’ve been practising yoga for decades, or are relatively new to it (like yours truly), the standard and style of your yoga mat has a huge effect on the standard of your practice. There exist various kinds of mats which suit lots of different yoga practitioners, who all encounter the Aurorae brand at some stage, and often end up asking where it’s been all their lives. This Aurorae Classic yoga mat review takes a good look at one of their three excellent mats, but first let’s find out a bit on who the makers are:
Aurorae are a family business founded in 2009; they are an active lifestyle retailer and yoga paraphernalia peddler created by yoga student and cancer survivor Dennis Ingui; he started practising yoga to help rebuild his body and enhance his inner peace of mind. Soon, he was inspired to create eco-friendly, innovative, top-class-yet-affordable yoga mats, towels and more; his dedication paid off, and made his brand one of the top yoga companies in the world.
What Makes the Aurorae Classic Yoga Mat Stand Out From the Rest?
First off, this mat is Aurorae’s flagship product. If you’re even a little familiar with the quality of the rest of their wares, this fact alone should be enough to convince you of their Classic mat’s standard. Comfortable, soft, extra thick - and according to many happy customers, still in great condition even after three or four years of moderate use.
Here’s more on what makes this a great yoga mat to own, use and cherish for many years: like all Aurorae products, their yoga mats are made with the utmost care. There really isn’t anything they’ve missed here. Their Classic mats are:
- Made of non-toxic, eco-friendly, biodegradable high quality resin
