Anyone who has ever performed a Pungu Mayurasana (Wounded Peacock) or Taraksvasana (Handstand Scorpion) yoga pose knows you better have a good grip. Heck, just a downward dog requires a good deal of….stick. In other words, a good, grippy yoga mat goes a long way towards meditation.
Hybrid Bliss Yoga Mat
In the vain of all that yoga stands for, the folks at Kharma Khare are taking reincarnation quite literally using recycled and recyclable materials. Kharma Khare’s mission is simple – create the best yoga mats for your practice and our planet.
We believe that conscientious companies can simultaneously help resolve an environmental challenge and be profitable enough to create jobs for people on our planet. We believe that companies can be a role model for change, in improving quality of life for ourselves and the planet.
Kharma Khare offers several yoga mats including the Hybrid Bliss Yoga Mat.
The Hybrid Bliss Yoga Mat is made from 4 mm of recycled rubber car tires salvaged from a land fill and transformed to a super grippy material that provides incredible traction and support. This surface is topped with 1 mm of sustainable natural rubber latex (NRL) creating a highly versatile yoga mat ideal for a range of practices from Yin to Bikrham.
