Frequently asked questions
Using your Yoga Mat
Before you first use your new yoga mat, gently spray your mat with water or wet your hands and feet and rub the areas of your mat you predominantly use as this will ‘wear in’ your new mat and provide grip as you may slip because it hasn’t been used before. The more you use your mat the grippier it will become as the microsuede layer offers reactive grip.
I recommend wetting your hands and feet or spraying your mat before each use for the first few weeks to ‘wear it in’ and initially provide grip.
If you sweat alot during your yoga practice it is best to use a towel to absorb excess sweat. Even though our microsuede layer is designed to absorb sweat, once it has reached full absorbency it will release excess liquid and become squelchy.
Also give it a good wash and clean after to keep it clean and hygienic.
What is my yoga mat made of?
Hippy Soul Yoga Mats are made of biodegradable natural tree rubber base with a luxurious microsuede top layer which is bonded using heat treatment. Designs are printed using Water Based Inks which are Non-Fade and UV resistant. There are No Phthalates, Latex, BPA, Silicon, Chlorine or Toxic Glues used. Our yoga mats are also Vegan Friendly.
What is the size of my yoga mat?
Our Yoga Mats are 173cm x 61cm and 4.5mm thick.
How much does my yoga mat weigh?
Each yoga mat weighs between 2 – 2.5kg.
Why does my new yoga mat have an odour?
Even though our mats are made using natural tree rubber, non-toxic and biodegradable products and microsuede, initially your mat may have a rubber odour as it has been packaged up and unable to breathe. Hang your new yoga mat up for 24 hours to air and the odour will dissipate.
