The cushions are filled with organic, earth-friendly buckwheat hulls and provide a firm foundation for good posture and proper alignment. Green is the color of life, balance and growth, but the soft green silk fabric also reflects hues of orange and yellow depending on the light!

What a magnificent piece of yogic wall art to keep in the home, studio or yoga / meditation space!

I first tried yoga when working my way through the P90X videos. It helped me tremendously. It strengthened my legs and core to levels that I had not previously attained.
I especially like the idea of the extra log mat for men. One of my biggest problems is that my hands and feet would always be off the mat when I went into downward dog and with this mat I don’t think I would have that issue.
Nope, it won’t be an issue at all! Hope you enjoy the mat!
I always assumed that yoga was something middle aged women did. But nowadays that stereotype has been destroyed by professional athletes sharing stories online of their yoga allowing them to carry on their careers into their late 30’s / early 40’s.
I have never tried it myself but always wondered if I should. I injured my back a year ago in a car crash and some certain exercises I perform cause me pain. Do you think yoga would help this or still cause pain?
I absolutely know that yoga would be able to help you with your pain after the accident, Craig. I suggest you start classes with a certified instructor and with consistent practice, you’ll see the results!
I have long thought about yoga.
I would like, to be honest. My ex-wife had yoga classes for about a year. I purchased she one of the best yoga mat from the USA. She spent a lot of money but after a year or so she quit.
Actually, I not clear why? Maybe just laziness as many of us is tend to be? Anyway, I am close to the action to attend for yoga classes.
If Yoga already has thousands of years of proven value then the results should be.
The main thing is to believe in yourself.
I couldn’t agree more: regular practice and belief in yourself!
Its great to know that yoga is not mainly for women.
As a man doing office work for long hours , drive for long hours in my car some times .
I feel pains in my nick from sitting for long hours in front of the computer , and I feel pain in my back when driving .
I feel I should do somethin about that to not to go into chronic ailment .
I would to ask if the book “Real Men Do Yoga” can help me ?
The book provides practical tips and techniques to incorporate yoga into other workouts such as sports, bodybuilding or weightlifting. Therefore, it absolutely can help you. Let me know how it goes, Sam!
Wow, this is very interesting, I never know all this thing about yoga. Thank you for all this great information. My cousin loves yoga, I will send her your website and I’ll keep you for my future reference. Your website is nice, keep up your good work!
