Seven Eco Friendly Yoga Mats Reviewed

Christelle is an active yoga student and teacher and although she does not have a yoga website she wanted to get out the word on eco friendly yoga mats so she could direct other yoga students to a source she knows about. I offered to place this helpful yoga mat review here since I am happy to share information that is going to support you in your quest for improved well being.

As Christelle and I discovered there are a number of eco friendly earth friendly yoga mats available. This is good news since many of the cheap yoga mats are often made from petroleum by products that do not biodegrade and simply contribute to the creation of garbage once there yoga life span is completed. They can’t be very good for your health either.

So sit back and relax and check out the seven eco friendly yoga mats reviewed below. Remember with some yoga mats their is a possible allergy issue since some yoga mats contain latex or rubber
