A traditional Indian style coarse weave yoga rug based on the original Indian yoga mat. 100% cotton, coarse weave rugs are designed for Ashtanga or Power Yoga where grip whilst sweating is essential. Yoga rugs were originally used before what we all know now as a 'yoga mat' was used. The rug's grip increases as it absorbs perspiration. The rug is embroidered with each of the seven Chakras (energy centers within the body) to help keep you aligned as well as helping you concentrate on being:
Sahasrara - Fully Connected SpirituallyAjna - FocusedVishuddha - CommunicativeAnahata - LovingManipura - ConfidentSvadhishthana ConnectedMuladhara - Rooted
These rugs are often used with a standard yoga mat, placed underneath, to help keep the rug in place..
