Beautiful Unique Yoga Rugs

Are you looking to replace your plastic yoga mat by a more eco-friendly alternative? Look no further...

At Ananda Hum, we have looked for 100% natural, ecological and biodegradable alternatives to the standard yoga mat. All these natural yoga mats are handmade using traditional techniques and fairly support local handweavers.

Here are 5 reasons why using a traditional yoga rug is so much better:

1- Yoga, more than just exercise is a ritual. By using a traditional rug (together with burning incense and chanting mantras), you enter into "yoga mood" and honour a millennial tradition.

2- Ahimsa - non violence is the first ethical rule of yogic philosophy. It calls for a respect towards others, oneself, animals & the planet. Using 100% biodegradable yoga rugs is a way to show great respect towards Mother Nature.

3- Reduce the amount of toxicity in your life. Many mats are made using toxic products. Widespread bad chemicals used to make PVC mats more flexible and durable are Phthalates. They are harmful for humans and the planet. People with atopic skin should stay away from all these chemicals. They also smell bad...

4- if you tend to sweat and/or have sweaty hands (like me), plastic yoga mats are not your best friends, especially in downward facing dog... cotton and other natural fibre yoga mats are so much better as they absorb excess sweat and provide a great grip.

5- Aesthetics: they just look so much better that plastic ones, so much more natural and they feel amazing.

Unlike most natural yoga rugs, they are non-skid thanks to a natural rubber layer on the bottom. This ensures that your mat "sticks" to the floor.
