Aurorae Northern Lights Yoga Mat and Slip Free Rosin Bag

In the last few weeks before Baby D. was born I took a Prenatal Yoga class from the gym that I am a member of. When I started the class I just used the yoga mats that they provided there at the gym. Of course the ones that they have are cheap and you slip all over the place while working out. Aururae was amazing enough to send me their Northern Lights Yoga Mat and their slip free rosin bag. I got to use it for the last few classes before I had the baby and what a difference it made!

As we all know in the last few weeks of pregnancy we don't have the best balance in the world......more like we have no balance at least I didn't. If you are trying to work out and slipping everywhere it just doesn't work! I am 5' 5" and usually barely fit on normal yoga mats that the gym provides with a little extra space on the ends. I love that this yoga mat is extra fact it is 4” longer than most traditional mats, and is a total of 72” long. It is also 1/4" thick so it provides just enough cushion and support to protect your knees, back, hips, and joints by absorbing the impact of the floor. My experience using this mat was very enjoyable and relaxing and made prenatal yoga much more comfortable on my hips and back.
Aurorae Yoga creates affordable yoga products to provide its customers with the best yoga experience possible. Their collection includes top of the line Yoga Mats, Yoga Slip Free Rosin Bags, Yoga Sport Sweat Towels, Yoga Mat Wash, Yoga Blocks, Denim Yoga Sack, and more. Combined, you have everything you need to have a relaxing and positive yoga experience.
I also found my mat to have just the right level of stickiness. I didn’t find myself slipping as I got sweaty which was very nice. Because of the soft support, Aurorae Yoga Mats are great for other floor exercises such as sit ups, push-ups, core, and more.

"This unique design replicates the natural phenomenon and energy source of Northern Lights. Each individual mat has a uniqueness of its own and no two mats are exactly the same. So find the power and potential within you and live it."

Another amazing feature of this mat is it is actually machine washable!  In fact, it’s recommended to ”break in” your mat and make it less slippery!  Just make sure you hang dry it.....never put it in the dryer.

Yoga Mat Tips
1. Wash your hands with soap and water before using your yoga mat to reduce any natural oils in your hands so that they aren't transferred to the yoga mat.
2. Do not use creams or oils on your hands or feet before your yoga practice to keep your yoga mat clean.
3. Wash your yoga mat with a soft brush and a tablespoon of dish washing liquid or detergent mixed with warm water, then rinse. Repeat if necessary.
4. Hang dry your yoga mat outside in the sun if possible. DO NOT PUT IN DRYER.
5. To keep your yoga mat fresh and clean, spray Aurorae yoga mat wash onto mat and let soak then wipe dry. Use to naturally clean your yoga mat while also giving it a fresh natural scent. Use as needed.
6. Always keep a cotton towel next to your yoga mat to wipe away any perspiration. Available through Aurorae.
7. If necessary use an Aurorae Yoga Slip Free Rosin Bag to absorb any perspiration and increase gripping power on your Aurorae yoga mat.
