Today I was fortunate to test out my new yoga mat, courtesy of Aurorae.

These mats offer a lot of benefits and are available in five colors:


and I rolled with the violet 😀


The first thing I noticed was the texture of the mat- SUPER thick and comfy.. it made my usual mat feel a little flimsy.

Another thing I loved about this mat was the fact that it is EXTRA LONG! I’m not very tall, but it still felt nice to have some extra room on the mat, especially while in savasana.

I had a great practice with my Aurora mat and would definitely recommend them to yogis of all levels 😀

    Hey Lady, I got that same mat to review and just posted it yesterday. But mine’s in green. I diggy the purple one you’re sportin’ 🙂 Enjoy your mat!

    Those mats look like a good deal! I like the fact that it is thicker. I don’t have the best wrists and my thinner makes me have to stop often and go into child pose because I can’t handle the uncomfortable tension. This might be a nice Christmas present to myself! Thanks for sharing your review. Now if only I could decide on a color!

    The Bean slides all over the floor/mat/carpet; it also tips over; basically, it felt very unstable. The instructions on the video are not clear enough; nor are the visuals repeated long enough to learn. Finally, I felt nothing in my workout–just rocking along with no feeling in the abs, legs, etc. I work out in a gym, so I’m used to a great session and knowing I have worked out; I wanted to try this for at-home exercising to supplement. Instead, I gave it away and use workout videos. Save your money.
