In­ever thought there could be a bad op­tion for a yoga mat un­til I ended up buy­ing a mat that gave me no grip and left me slip­ping all over the place dur­ing my class. That’s when I re­alised yoga mats are not al­ways cre­ated equal. Luck­ily, I got my hands on the TEGO Stance Truly Re­versible Mat with GuideAlign. As soon as I re­ceived it, I quickly booked my next yoga ses­sion. Its PVC ma­te­rial was not only soft to touch but also cush­ioned and com­fort­able. I loved the unique feel and found the pad­ding more than enough for my knees. I was slightly wor­ried about the mat get­ting slip­pery, but it has held up well. It had a fan­tas­tic grip and felt so nice un­der my feet and hands. On one side of the mat, the guide align de­sign helped keep my pos­ture in check so I could bal­ance bet­ter, stretch deeper and achieve the full ben­e­fit of the pose. When I re­versed the mat, the hon­ey­comb struc­ture pro­vided a con­fi­dent non-slip grip, per­fect for my ex­tended sweaty ses­sion. Yoga mats be­come a source ground for sweat ac­cu­mu­la­tion dur­ing rig­or­ous work­outs and tend to de­cay after some time. To my sur­prise, even after mul­ti­ple uses now, the mat did not flake out or stink. It’s closed cell con­struc­tion re­duces the im­pact of sweat seep­ing into the mat thereby im­prov­ing dura­bil­ity and over­all hy­giene. I en­joy tak­ing the mat to my lo­cal yoga class and it’s also nice to set up at home when I feel like stretch­ing but don’t want to do on my con­crete floors. It folds down nicely with­out any has­sle and it’s light weight al­lows for easy travel. Although the mat is light and com­pact enough to store seam­lessly in a per­sonal bag, it comes with a quiver bag that has a padded shoul­der strap and sep­a­rate stor­age space for keys, wal­let and phone.
