Each mat is hand made and so each will be slightly different and unique. The Zakti yoga mat has a stylish finish - the Black one, pigmented with charcoal, has flecks of natural white colour where the mesh shows through. The Natural one, has flecks of the natural jute colour. A fantastic design and kind to the environment. Simply good Karma!

100% Cotton Yoga Belt with Metal D rings
Yoga Belts are used in many styles of Yoga and help you to 'bind' in a pose by extending your current reach. For example, if you are unable to hold your toes or feet in Paschimottanasana (seated forward bend), you can loop the belt around your feet and fold forwards within your current capacity holding the belt. The binding element of poses is introduced to make an energetic connection and the belt helps you to feel that you've made this in a way that wouldn't be possible otherwise. Use under the guidance of your teacher for best results, never force or strongly pull yourself further than you are comfortably able to reach.
