Fab Find Friday- this MAT
I love yoga.
I have wrist issues.
Those two things can be mutually exclusive. Doing Downward Dog when you have shooting pains in your wrist at that angle tends to keep you from finding your “ohhm”. I’ve tried all sorts of modifications to avoid wrist pain.
Some days I just have to scrap all the floor work in my yoga practice. Skipping your down dogs and up dogs and planks and chataraungas doesn’t leave much.
Lululemon must have heard my cry. They have created a yoga mat that works beautifully to keep me in place but is padded enough to protect my wrists on everything but the worst days. The mat is two sided, with the colored side more smooth and easy to wipe down after a sweaty yoga session, and the back side has slightly more grip in case you tend to slide around more.
I was given the mat by the awesome staff at Lululemon Atheletica in Fort Worth at University Village to product test, but even so, I was really surprised at how pleased I am with it. It is a little on the pricey side, but as with so many things, you pay for what you get with yoga mats. I’ve worn out so many, I can safely say that a cheap yoga mat is just that… cheap.
If you’re looking to get a new mat, consider spending the extra cash and get a Lululemon, you won’t be sorry.
That’s my Fab Find. Happy Friday!
