Dragonfly Mat

Made of non-toxic and biodegradable tree rubber, the Dragonfly mat is a slim mat option that does not compromise on quality.

RatPad by YogaRat, Yoga Teacher Magazine

This is a cool prop, very simple, quite handy. It’s basically just a cushiony pad. I believe it will be most useful to those with sensitive knees. I’ve brought it to a couple of classes and given it for trial to student (hi Luisa and Betsy!), who have a sensitive knees, and they loved it. It’s... Read more

Kulae Mats

The Elite Hot Hybrid yoga mat by Kulae is unlike any yoga mat I have ever seen. It combines the thickness of a mat with the absorption and traction of a yoga towel.

Aurorae Synergy Mat, Yoga Teacher Magazine

This Aurorae combination towel and yoga mat isn’t the only one on the market (e.g. Lululemon sells one too), but the execution is brilliant. I received the blue with yellow trim; it’s plush but not overly so, it just feels very nice to stand on. The technology is interesting – as opposed to your... Read more

The hot dog yoga mat bag is for the working professional or traveling yogi who needs a garment bag and yoga carrier in one. I work a regular 9-5 in addition to teaching and taking yoga classes. I go from work to a class or vice versa, with clothes mashed in a backpack in addition to my yoga bag... Read more

HotDrop is a relatively new yoga clothing line that was created by a Bikram instructor. Even if you don’t practice hot yoga of any kind, we all sweat. I was able to try out their Signature Long Sleeve Tee and the Geofloral String Along shorts. At 6’1”, finding sleeves and pant legs that fit my... Read more
