YOGO Travel Mats
As you probably know by now, two of my favourite things are yoga and travel. People often ask me how I manage to keep up with my yoga practice while I’m jumping around the globe, and one essential is a good travel mat. I’ve tried a few different brands, but most still need to be rolled up which doesn’t work if you are doing a short trip with just a carry-on bag. Thankfully, I stumbled upon YOGO mats a few years ago and I’ve been hooked ever since!
YOGO Mats are made with biodegradable natural tree rubber from renewable long-term non-Amazonian tree plantations. Their straps are recyclable plastic so that at the end of the mat’s life all of it can be recycled or biodegrade. Not only are their mats super durable, but they are also compact, easy to clean, and perfect for bringing with you. The fact that YOGO is a smaller business focussing on sustainability and giving back by planting a tree for every mat sold makes me feel even better about supporting them.
My mat has been everywhere with me, including Bali, Australia, Mexico, Poland, and Italy! Sometimes I even bring it hiking so I can practice somewhere along the way. Keep in mind that like all travel mats, these mats quite thin which means they may not be suitable for everyone. However, I appreciate how grippy they are and find them really great for balances and inversions!
