Here are a few of our most frequently asked questions. If you don’t see what you are looking for, please reach out to us!

What are Aura Mat yoga mats made from?

Our mats are made with a blend of organic jute and 100% pure cotton. They are then dyed with natural, medicinal herbs dyes like neem, tulsi and turmeric. The underside of the yoga mat is made of natural tree rubber to help it grip to the floor. Our yoga mats are 100% free of harmful synthetic materials.

Why 100% natural fiber and not synthetic materials?

Because synthetic plastics ‘off-gas’ and release unpleasant vapors while you practice. They also do not biodegrade. Our natural fiber yoga mats are very durable and eco-friendly. When your Aura Mat has come to the end of its life it can be recycled and is fully biodegradable. 

How does the Aura Mat feel?

Woven with a textured rib pattern from natural fibers, our mats are soft to the touch and provide excellent cushioning support and grip for your hands and feet.

What are the Ayurvedic medicinal herbal dyes?

Our mats are made using a blend of traditional Ayurvedic herb dyes. These include tulsi, turmeric and neem. These herbs are renowned for their antimicrobial, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.

What is Ayurvastra?

Ayurvastra is the ancient art of producing textiles with healing properties. Made from natural organic fibers and herbal-dyes, the fabrics act as healing agents that allow the potent plant benefits to be absorbed through the skin.

What is my aura?

The human aura is the subtle electromagnetic field that surrounds every living body. It stores negative and positive energies and radiates like a giant halo around your entire body. Kirlian photographic technology can show our auras and their many colors, which indicate the frequency and state of your aura.

What makes Aura Mats special?

The combination of natural materials, medicinal herb dyes and ancient Ayurvedic crafting practices makes Aura Mats holistically supportive of your wellbeing and aura – far more than just a mat to practice on.

How easy is the Aura Mat to transport?

Our mats are easy to take on your daily commute and provide a clean practice space wherever you are: from your home to the yoga studio, or even the office or the park.

s the yoga mat slippery because it’s fabric and not plastic?

No. Our natural fiber Ayurvedic yoga mats offer the perfect grip to allow you find your flow. Our yoga mats are woven with a traditional, centuries-old design that allows you to gain traction while insuring you are in alignment at the same time.

How easy are Aura Mats to wash?

Our mats are machine washable and easy to clean. We recommend using cold water on a gentle cycle with a natural, non-bleach detergent to keep them clean and hygienic.

Once it’s washed, simply wrap your mat in a towel and squeeze out any excess water. Then hang your mat or lay it out flat surface and well-ventilated area out of the sun to completely dry the yoga mat. If exposed to direct sunlight, the natural dyes may fade.

To preserve the power of the herbal dyes, we recommend washing your mat no more than once a month. To lightly refresh it, you can wipe with a warm damp cloth.
