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 ๐Ÿ˜€


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! Iโ€™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 ๐Ÿ˜€

    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’ ๐Ÿ™‚ 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.
