Nourish your mind and body the safe way with this non-toxic, non-slip yoga mat
Whether you’ve been practising yoga for years and find crow pose a cinch or if you’re just getting the hang of downward dog, a portable yoga mat is an essential piece of kit that will ensure that you stay safe, stable and well supported throughout each session.
Some yoga poses can be tough on the knees, palms, elbows or back, even if you’re doing them correctly. Though it’s a lightweight 4mm thick, the Sissel Yoga mat features lots of tiny air pockets, creating a lovely padded surface that will cushion your joints and allow you to focus on your form. The non-slip surface will keep you stable no matter what pose you’re attempting, helping you to avoid injury. These qualities also make the mat ideal for Pilates and other floor-based exercises such as sit-ups.
If you attend group yoga classes, having your own mat will help you to carve out a space of your own in a crowded room and feel truly relaxed even when you’re surrounded by people. It also acts as a helpful guide for where the best place to put your hands and feet is – your instructor may use phrases such as ‘jump to the top of your mat’, giving you an area to focus on so that you can easily balance and coordinate your movements.
There are many yoga mats on the market, but most of them contain both latex and phthalate. Latex allergies affect many people – if this is you, you’ll definitely want to avoid it in something like a yoga mat that will be going right next to your face and skin!
Phthalate is a chemical added to plastic to make it softer and more pliable, hence why it’s often used in yoga mats. It is an ‘endocrine disruptor’, which means it mimics the hormones in your body and can change how they work. Phthalates are associated with breast cancer and decreased fertility, among many other health conditions. Sissel’s yoga mat is free of both phthalate and latex while still offering a flexible and non-slip space for you to do your yoga.
Bloggers LOVE the SISSEL YOGA MAT!
"The mat itself is very lightweight, which I prefer as I think it would be great, especially if you take your yoga mat to the gym etc. It is 4mm thick though, and I had no problems with the mat being too thin, I found it comfortable to use. The mat also has a non-slip surface, which of course makes it a lot safer and less scary to use!
One really important feature of this mat in particular is that it is free of both phthalate and and latex, so if you have allergies or concerns with either of those, then I would definitely consider getting this mat in particular over others."
