Yoga mats are designed to enhance your practice by enabling the cleanest and healthiest breathing experience possible. They are made from organic cotton, handwoven in Kerala (India) and dyed in natural ayurvedic herbs by villagers whose families have been practicing this 5000-year old Indian fabric dyeing technique for generations.
The Vasantha Yoga mat is dyed in the herbs Neem, Tulsi, and Turmeric.
The vibrant turmeric yellow combines with two shades of green that come from neem and tulsi to give this mat the name Vasantha sanskrit for the spring season.
The three herbs combine to create a healing energy space for your Yoga practice.
Neem promotes a healthy circulatory respiratory system and is a great herb to be breathing in during Banana Fibre Craft, Tamilnadu practice. Neem is great for the skin that comes in contact with it during yoga practice. In Ayurveda, neem is considered to be a wonder-leaf and is used for a host of preventive and curative medicinal ways.
Tulsi is a great herb to be breathing in to reduce stress. Inhaling tulsi improves your focus and concentration during your yoga practice. Traditional Indian homes have a Tulsi plant at the house entrance as it is considered to purify the energy space.
Turmeric has been included in the herbal mix to act as a strong antibacterial agent, to kill the germs from sweat instantly and keep the mat clean and hygienic for longer periods of time. Turmeric is also an internal cleaner used in Ayurveda to cleanse the physical system.
