20+ Reasons to Throw Your Yoga Mat Away – Reason #22
Are you looking for a Yoga mat for allergies? Have you ever opened your new Yoga mat, rolled it out on the floor, and had to hold your breath or plug your nose due to the harsh smell of the chemicals used in the manufacturing process? Perhaps you had to let it air out before you could even use it? Unfortunately, most of us have had this nauseating experience if we have used any of the mass-produced Yoga mats.
If you have an allergy or chemical sensitivity to petroleum-based, plastic, or environmental toxins in general, practicing Yoga on a Yoga mat made of synthetic materials can be difficult. The truth is, Yoga was never done on rubber or plastic Yoga mats and is actually counterproductive to the optimum health and experience you are working towards. Rubber and foam insulate our auric energy field hindering our bodies’ natural connection to the earth.
Every hand-made Ayurvedic Yoga mat is dyed with Ayurvedic herbal formulas retained for thousands of years. Due to the fact that aura mat Yoga mats are dyed with herbs, they actually carry the properties of anti-microbial, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial. This makes our Yoga mats great for today’s COVID challenges and for anyone who suffers from allergies and environmental toxins. Simply put, there might not be a better alternative to Ayurvedic Yoga mats.
Ayurvedic Yoga mats are crafted of completely natural material. Even the dyes are from plants. There are absolutely no chemicals or harsh preservatives in our Ayurveda Yoga mats. We were the first to sell Ayurvedic Yoga mats in the US and we have maintained our integrity with regard to the ancient manufacturing processes and the Ayurvedic artisans who retained the information. We simply will not improve the designs or modify the Ayurvedic dye formulas to make more money or to help “production” in the name of consumption. Period. Unfortunately the same can not be said for other brands emerging today claiming to be the first to bring an Ayurveda Yoga mat, yet there isn’t anything Ayurveda about the product whatsoever.
Once the original Ayurvedic Yoga mat designs and dye formulas are altered, these Yoga mats are no longer authentic Ayurveda Yoga mats and are just another knockoff in the black market. If the Yoga mat is bright in color, this is a clear indication that chemicals and preservatives have been added to improve marketability since we are all attracted to bright, flashy colors. These additives can cause allergic reactions for those sensitive to synthetic chemicals.
The Ayurveda dying process is so advanced, that every dye bath is actually poured at the base of the trees in the local community so that the benefits of the dye bath, may carry on as it is upcycled back into the earth. Ayurvedic Yoga mats are biodegradable too!
So if you are sensitive to environmental toxins and looking for a yoga mat for allergies simply throw away your toxic Yoga mat and buy an Ayurvedic Yoga mat today. Or, if you just want an all-natural healthy option that does not off-gass while practicing Yoga and pranayama, Ayurveda Yoga rugs are the solution for you.
