Mail days are my favourite days, and I loved mail day even more this week when I ripped open the box and found my new Gaiam Canada yoga mat inside! I have been eyeing Gaiam yoga mats for so long, always browsing through the many different colours and prints (there’s so so many, check them out here and use code “ASHLEY18” for 20% off!). My full review of the yoga mat is posted below (& stick around until the end of the post for a fun giveaway!):
When shopping for yoga mats, I always keep four things in mind: comfort, price, weight, and look. I was so happy to realize, even after just a few days of owning the yoga mat, that all four of these aspects were met!
Comfort: this yoga mat is so spongey, and does not hurt my hands or feet while doingyoga or working out on this mat. The material is so grippy, so I stay put during my whole session!
Price: valued at $39.99, you can’t go wrong. I would rather spend $40 on a good quality mat which can last me a while, than $10 on a mat that I’m going to need to replace a few times a year.
Weight: this particular mat is the 6-mm yoga mat, which I find to be thick enough to be comfortable, yet light enough to carry around. As mentioned in my previous posts, lightweight mats are ideal for on the go, and this mat is just that!
Look: I like working out or doing yoga in style, my bright yoga clothes are a motivation for me to practice even when I am not feeling it. This Gaiam yoga mat is covered in such a fun, calming print. Oh, and did I mention it’s reversible?! One side is purple, one is grey, and the colours and prints work so well together.
So, if you can’t tell by my review, I was blown away with this yoga mat, and it is by far my favourite I have owned up to date. All opinions remain my own when I say this: I would recommend this mat to anybody. If you are looking to start yoga this new year or looking for a new mat, you’ve found the one!
