"It's not like you're sitting on cotton balls ‚ it's rough, but in a good way. You might freak out the first time you wash it in a machine, because it will come out like a hard, warped dragon, but when you lay it down on the floor, you can step on it and get it back into shape ‚ so don't worry. Also rolling it back up tightly will help shape it back up. I did put mine in the dryer for a short run the first two times, but now that I see the true need to have it moist when using it, there's no need to worry about it being dry. Note: It's true that if you're on a wood surface like most studios, you will need the grip-it layer below or another sticky yoga mat underneath (why lug another mat, though, when the roll of grip-it is so much lighter and easier to tote around?). I would recommend, though, that the grip-it run the entire length of the rug instead of 64. I say this because if you push off the top or bottom and there'sno grip-it underneath, your rug will slide. All in all, I have no doubts this rug will last a lifetime if I take proper care of it, and you might not believe me, but during the day I just can't wait to get to my next class so I can be on top of it again! All in all, I have no doubts this rug will last a lifetime"

"Just got my mat at the Yoga Journal Midwest conference. IT IS AWESOME! Some people may feel that it doesn't have the sticky feel of plastic..but I would say, perhaps it'snot the mat you need to check, it's your form. A slipping down dog is a lack of alignment, never the problem of a mat. Besides, why would you prefer oil based plastic over earth friendly, plant based, master weaving. Do the earth and your practice a favor: invest in this mat!"

"I just received and tried out my new saffron yoga mat. It's every bit as wonderful as I thought it would be. The smell, the texture on my hands and feet, the color is amazing. I am so looking forward to many years of practice with my new best yoga friend. Kudos for an amazing product. I hope to add more colors in the future."

The Sanskrit meaning of yoga is to join or unite. I never thought that principle might apply to my yoga mat and me. That is, until I purchased a natural, handwoven, cotton yoga mat from Yogasana Mats. From the moment that I opened the box, I felt a kinship with the mat -- nothing like that has ever happened with a sticky mat purchased from a local department store! The weaver's name and signature were attached to the mat, a lovely stick of incense was included in the package, and the color and fragrance of the mat were beautiful. I spread it out, sprinkled some holy water on it, thought about the weaver, the cotton, the dyes, the warm sun, and I felt my heart expand in gratitude for it all. I love to go to my mat now -- because there is a connection and a joining of spirit that has never been present with my numerous sticky mats. If you want your practice to go beyond mere yoga exercise into a deeper state of union, you might want to start with a Yogasana yoga mat!

"I am always striving to be 'environmentally friendly' in my life from growing veggies in my yard, to composting and recycling just about everything. I finally have a yoga mat that meets my environmentally friendly test! I love that the mat is made, without power, and of natural cotton, in India. Best of all, I love the connection to the earth, and its energy, that I feel when laying in Savasana. This mat is beautiful; I actually keep it unrolled next to my bed when I am not doing down dog on it. I highly recommend using a Yogasana Mat."

This mat truly feels like sacred space! The texture keeps the soles of my feet and hands firmly planted and full of awareness. I especially love this mat when we are doing prone poses (belly down, such as cobra) because it feels so comforting after the pose to lie my face on organic cotton rather than a sticky PVC mat. It is perfect for a hot, sweaty class and is a conversation starter. Every class since using this mat I have had someone ask me what I am practicing on. It will make you popular boys (haha). I love keeping it laid out at home (as it is so pleasing to the eye) and using the mat outside is just perfect (for yoga or just lounging around). The mission of Yogasana is initially what drew me to connect with them, so the fact that the mat is actually AWESOME is simply a bonus.

"My name is Megan Kelley, I am a Hatha yoga instructor who's practice has been completely transformed through the incorporation of Yogasana's Earth mat. I like to practice outside, but it can be difficult to flow when a plastic mat is sticking to me through transitions. When used outside, Yogasana's woven mats feel as if they form to the shape of the Earth, adding an entirely new element to your practice. They support you and ground your practice, so you can find your center and truly connect to the Earth."

"I only used a mat when traveling and got my yogasana just for that. I find myself using my saffron woven mat daily now. I love the way it feels when doing asana. It really is my base. The only problem is my cat thinks it is hers."

I love using them for my hot yoga classes because they eliminate the need for a towel. Yogasana mats rock! They're super soft and come in so many fun colors. I love using them for my hot yoga classes because they eliminate the need for a towel. The mats also machine wash nicely, which is a plus when you're practicing several times a week. I absolutely love and adore it.Doing my practice on a traditional mat makes me feel complete in my quest. Okay, I've practiced with the rug a half dozen times, washed it three times, and am ready to give you my thoughts: I absolutely love and adore it. Truly, I think the goal in yoga is to be within, and that it doesn't really matter what you're on or what room you're in or even who the instructor is, but doing my practice on a traditional mat makes me feel complete in my quest. The specifics of the rug are documented well on the site and in other testimonials, so let me just add that if you spray it good ‚ enough to keep it damp, it sticks just like my Jade rubber mat. And while I preach about not being concerned as to what you're standing or sitting or laying on, being on this cotton feels earthy.

"The Yogasana eco-friendly mat has been a fantastic addition to my yoga practice in the hot room! The feel of this mat under my feet is like no other, and I love it! Not only is it the most effective non-slip mat for hot yoga practice out there, but because of its 100% natural materials and the loving care taken in its making, this mat really helps ground and calm body and mind, as you enter into that personal space before, during, and after practice. And it looks beautiful! You won't need to use a yoga towel with this mat to prevent slipping. You may choose to put a towel on top just to catch that extra sweat during the floor series.After class I use a homemade mat-spray solution with tea-tree and lavander oils... I hang the mat outside my porch and voila! What do I do if it's cold, cloudy or rainy outside?I hang it or lay it down inside the house under the fan. Ideally, you want to have two of these mats if you practice in the evenings and need to take it with you the next morning, so you can allow time for it to dry.Enjoy and Namaste! - Jaya Sita Bikram Yoga Teacher and practitioner in Philadelphia."

"I'm so inspired by your yoga mats! I think it's a beautiful thing you are doing with the master weavers and being good to the environment. It's so nice to know companies like Yogasana exist with such attention to detail, great philosophy and products, and a way to give back. I'm grateful for the opportunity to give in this way as I practice living in abundance"

Hello! I am interested in buying a couple more mats. I bought earth over a year ago now and she is still going strong, madly in love - but would love to have the option of a few more colors to use depending on my mood! I am planning on getting saffron and water mats too! Allison Premischook - Australia

"Thrilled the mat's on its way - such speedy service! I might be back for more - they look so lovely (and ethical). By the way, I think you have a truly excellent, inspirational Ambassador in Britta Trubridge. It was through her various internet/social media sites that I found my way to you - she's really quite astonishing; very inspiring. In my 50s, she's made me want to achieve a goal of doing a handstand as she does. We\ll see! Kind regards, Anna Hackett"

"After pining for one of these yoga mats for about 6 months, I finally got one as a graduation gift from my parents. I had read so many wonderful things about these mats, and I was so excited about the durability, the no-slip texture, and the ability to throw it in the washing machine when it gets dirty. Upon receiving it, I learned that there was so much more that went into the crafting of this mat than just durability and texture. My mat came with a note hand signed by the person who wove it (by hand, no electricity used to make these mats!), and I felt such a connection to the mat's origin. When I first stepped onto my mat for yoga practice, I was concerned that the thick texture would hurt my hands and feet. But the mat actually became softer as I used it (especially after washing) while in no way losing its best features like the no-slip grip and sturdiness. I've since used it in the sand, in the grass, in the dirt, on hardwood floors, carpet, etc. and it never fails to amaze me. When it gets dirty I simply put it in the washing machine and it comes out all clean. The quality of this mat never seems to decline. I see this mat being in my life for many years to come! Chelsea Dimascio I love the way Yogasana connects the product to the environment and the people who produce it. I also really like that this is a product that supports a traditional way of life in India. Danielle Richardson"

I received my Yogasana Mat today and I am absolutely delighted with it. The combination of a work of art/custom and such a worthwhile cause gives these mats a really great feel. I unrolled it and did a short practice straight away whilst burning some incense you kindly sent. Many blessings regards, Rob Wills (from Tasmania)

Love this mat. I practice hot yoga and frequently in the outdoors. This mat doesn't slip or move around during my practice, especially love it'sheavy weight when moving through Sun Salutations. Great for throwing down on the grass, doesn't ripple and has an organic, earthly feel. A great alternative to synthetic mats. ~
