Consider several factors when selecting a yoga mat for pregnancy. Designed to benefit you both physically and spiritually, is it possible that your yoga practice is actually causing you (and your unborn child) harm? If you use a PVC yoga mat, then the answer very well may be yes.
When a PVC mat is no longer useful, what happens to it? If yogis are supposed to be tree-hugging and earth-loving types…trying to make the world a better place – one downward-dog at a time - why do so many yoga practitioners use ‘sticky mats’ made of harmful PVC-containing plastics?Eco-friendly yoga mats include: rubber yoga mats, cork yoga mats and cotton yoga mats. Cork and rubber mats are made from trees and cotton mats are made from cotton plants. The most important decision you can make for your yoga practice is to choose a non-toxic, sustainable mat made from natural resources.
