Hi, I’m Tom. 15 years ago I started my Yoga practice because I had back pain. Not only has Yoga kept me pain free all these years, but it is so much more. It helps me stay calm, wise, and in touch. I love everything about yoga except for the mat.
Have you ever used a product even though you knew it wasn’t for you? That’s what yoga mats feel like to me. They are too small for me. They are too short for my old-man down dog and too narrow for my up dog. Unless I spent a small fortune, they are also too thin for my old bones.
I know that I’m not alone. After all, Yoga isn’t just for small people. 16% of yoga practitioners are men and even tall women must be frustrated by a mat designed for 5 foot tall people.
