Cork yoga mats have been growing in popularity over the recent months. While cork mats are commonly made from two bases – natural rubber and TPE, we will focus here on the latter. Cork mats are considered eco-friendly because both cork and natural rubber are sourced in a sustainable manner. Additionally, these materials are biodegradable and 100% vegan.
Focusing on utilisation, such mats are understood to be perfect for hot yoga, owing to the hydrophilic and non-slip characteristics of the cork top surface. The rubber base adds durability to the mat. Additionally, these mats can be used for multiple forms of yoga – hot yoga, vinyasa flows, ashtanga yoga and yin yang yoga. Such non-slip yoga mats are worth a try due to their versatile properties.
