Our rugs are traditionally used for Astanga yoga and recommended by Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India today. They are also excellent for any athletic or sweat-producing yoga practice like Bikram Method Yoga. These decorative and tightly woven cotton rugs have been used for centuries for Hatha Yoga and are considered to be the first mats ever used for Yoga practice in India.

The rugs rest nicely over any Yoga Mat and most floor surfaces, adding extra cushion for sitting postures and better traction and stability for standing postures by absorbing perspiration and moisture that would otherwise make your mat slippery. (We recommend using a mat under your rug to keep it from moving on the floor).

Our rugs are loom woven by hand, and rug dimensions may vary somewhat from weaver to weaver. Each rug is a unique and authentic hand-crafted product.

Added Bonus: Woven lines in the pattern are guides for your hands and feet to help achieve correct alignment.

10 years of consistent use and still like new
I've had this grey and burgundy rug for almost 10 years, got it before I started yoga teacher training; and after washing, travelling, outdoor and indoor use, it looks and feels as the day it arrived. I see my students coming to class with fancy (expensive) sticky mats and they have difficulties transitioning from one pose to another because they cannot slide. Because of that they also do not properly develop the stabilizing muscles to grow in practice - as well as their hair gets pulled on sticky mats - sticky mats are kind of the antithesis of ahimsa... I encourage students to use a rug instead, when my hands/feet sweat I don't slip, but I can still slide with control through poses when necessary. Fashion over practicality and superior performance seems to win most times, unfortunately. But I love my rug, and the great condition it remains - the only reason I shop for another rug is ironically fashion, to find another color I like. Review by Amber / (Posted on 3/10/2017)
