Yogo Mat Review #2 (after the trip)

IMG_0015.JPG

The Yogo Ultralight Mat couldn't have been more perfect for my trip to Nepal.  It took me from my hotel balcony, to a rooftop class (that I ended up teaching), to a mountaintop at sunrise.  When you set out on this type of adventure, compact portability is a must.  I was not willing to compromise my daily yoga practice.  I was relieved to find the Yogo Ultralight Mat.  It has more features than I thought possible.  Here I'll list the things that I loved about the mat.

  1. It fits neatly inside my bag, or clips conveniently to the outside of my backpack.   
  2. The practice space is always clean because it folds in on itself.
  3. It is sticky, I don't slide on it, and it does not slide on the floor.
  4. It is very lightweight.
  5. It washes easily in the shower, and can drip dry by hanging from it's own straps.

The list of cons is short, but worth mentioning.

  1. It's slightly smaller than the average mat.  If you are a small yogi, you'll appreciate it, as this cuts down on weight and makes a compact fold.  The Ultra is available for those who require more space.
  2. It is thin and doesn't offer much cushion (duh, it's a travel mat).  I did find myself placing my clean yogo mat on top of a studio mat that didn't appear sanitary.  Score - clean and cushioned!

Honestly, I'm looking for more ways to use this mat.  It would make a great Christmas Gift for the yogi on your list.  Here's a link to the company's website (or order it on amazon.com if you've got amazon prime).  It'd be great during a picnic, hike or run.  It can easily attach to several places on my bicycle, backpack, gym bag, suitcase, below a child's stroller, or in a desk.  Many happy hours of practice await me and my Yogo Ultralight Mat.  Happy practicing!
