I love my new mat. It looks beautiful, and the cork material feels fantastic. Simply a great mat! Thank you!
I am really enjoying using my cork yoga blocks! They are very different to what I am used to, I used to have the soft foamy type. The cork ones are much harder than the foam style yoga blocks and because of this I find that they don’t feel like they will roll over or squish down with my weight, and they feel much more stable in poses like Triangle. It feels much more like you have brought the floor up, rather than adding in a foamy, wobbly block. I noticed the hardness of the cork block when I rested my forehead down in Child’s pose and Pigeon pose, but it wasn’t uncomfortable, my head just didn’t sink down as it did before with foam blocks. The cork blocks are much heavier than the foam style blocks, which is not a problem for me, but they will make your bag a lot heavier for going back and fore to class. They are a little bit smaller than the foam blocks, but I prefer this and I think the smaller size is much neater and actually works better. They are less of a handful than the foam ones and I actually use them much more in class now, I can easily grab them, where the foam ones felt a bit big and clumsy for me as I have quite small hands. I really love these blocks and I definitely prefer cork to foam, and I wouldn’t go back to foam now. I keep my old foam ones in my car as spares, just incase anyone forgets theirs and wants to borrow them in class!
It took a long time to get and when I inquired about my item I didn’t receive a response so had to inquire a second time asking for a refund before the item was sent and a tracking number provided.
It’s too bad because if the experience had been better id buy several more.
Great - but be careful with body oils and using after moisturising as the material will absorb and get a little stained
This mat was given to me as a birthday present. It replaces an older, slightly more tatty, rubber, yoga mat that I’ve used for many years. Instead of replacing my old mat with a similar, I opted to get a more environmentally friendly and sustainable one. The mat is compact, lightweight, and a pleasure to do my yoga sessions on.
I’m a big kid yoga teacher and bought for my 50 year old self! Luckily I’m on the petite side and this is the perfect mat!
I like that the pictures are muted, the surface is warm and soft yet supportive for standing poses and the backing is non-slip. I like knowing it’s a sustainable product and the service and delivery was prompt and efficient.
I treated myself to the pro yoga mat for Christmas and have been using it for my home practice. It really takes the session to another level, It is so comfortable and smooth and I’m much more balanced, the gold alignment lines not only look good they really help to correct my poses. So impressed, I had to return to leave a review.
Love these - great level of cushioning, and they're the best mats I've found to prevent slipping when sweaty (which is a real issue for me normally). Also, they're very resilient, despite being abused/roughly handled by my child, husband, and cat! Worth the extra money for sure.
Surprised at his heavy this mat is, and find it very slippery, having to spray with water often through session. Not what I hoped for
Sturdy, soft and grips well even in sweaty hot yoga. Very pleased. It was expensive but so far delivering value for money.
It is much heavier than I expected so it you’re going to be carrying it around a lot bear that in mind.
Thinner than my old yoga mat but just as easy on my knees. The cork is very grippy and the natural rubber backing is odour free. Love the width and length too. Perfect
I waited to write this review, because I had never used a cork mat before. I had my Moon phase mat as a Christmas gift (2022) so I have been using it for a year now.
Things I found were different with a cork mat: firstly it is a little heavier, in the early days I also found when my feet were colder I had less grip.
One year on I love my mat and have to say it is the best mat I have even owned.
The cork surface is still in excellent condition and on occasion when the light is right the gold design actually glows. It really helps with alignment too.
I don't find I slip anymore, I think it just takes time to get used to a different type of mat, I really am so pleased I chose this mat and highly recommend it.
I do love this mat, but a lot of what I read about cork mats before I bought it suggested that they were naturally grippy, and that is simply not true. They need moisture - either water or sweat - otherwise they are slippery. I’ve decided that the ecological and aesthetic advantages of cork outweigh the slipperiness, and I keep a spray bottle of water handy to add moisture before and during my practice. If you have naturally sweaty hands and feet then you probably won’t need to do this. But if like me you have naturally dry hands and feet, you will find yourself slipping and sliding unless you help the mat with water.
A good level of thickness, quite weighty. Love the gold lines on it for alignment. When it arrived there was a slight bend in one corner, which won't go away but it doesn't cause any hindrance.
An excellent product at a good price and delivered only two working days after ordering.
Excellent massage ball , ordered several sizes and love using the small one with my feet to wake them up in the morning. Cork massage balls are so much nicer to use than their plastic counterparts.
