Note: The Special Man Flow Yoga Edition of the mat is sold out, but more mats are already on the way, they should be available by the end of December/early January. If you’d like to be the first to know when they’re available, sign up for my email list!

We built this mat to reflect our mission of helping people get as strong as possible with no-frills, fitness-focused yoga. This mat is the result of 2 years of research & development, rigorous testing, and many late nights. I invite you to purchase your mat from Amazon today! (Don’t live in the US? We recommend Stackry.)

Here are the features of the mat!

This premium cork yoga mat comes in 3 variations:

No Slip, Smooth Cork Surface

No Slip, Smooth Cork Surface

  • No more sliding during downdog or plank.
  • Don’t worry about your feet sliding away from one another when pushing your limits in lunges, warrior poses, or wide stance positions.
  • Gets better as it gets wetter – Great grip to start, but it gets even better when you start sweating.
  • Perfect for people who sweat a lot.

Premium Cork

Premium Cork, 6x Thicker Than Normal Cork Yoga Mats

  • 6x Thicker Than Normal Cork Yoga Mats – Our cork is not just a layer of condensed cork. Most cork mats have a layer of cork about as thick as sandpaper. Ours is higher quality, more durable, and thicker.
  • Porous, sweat-absorbing – great for people who sweat a lot during yoga.
  • Naturally antimicrobial to prevent the spread of bacteria.
  • Non-toxic and easy to clean.
  • Sustainably sourced – perfect for the environmentally-conscious.

Thicker IS Better

Thicker is better

  • The perfect blend of cushion and support; just the right amount of padding.
  • The Cork is 6x thicker than normal cork yoga mats, but the mat itself is also thicker than traditional mats, built from more solid, heavy-duty material.
  • The thickness of our premium materials give it the perfect amount of cushioning and support, great for an aggressive yoga practice, as well as restorative yoga and cool-down stretching. It’s an incredibly well-balanced mat.

Natural Rubber Base – not TPE (Thermoplastic elastomers)

Natural Rubber Base - not TPE (Thermoplastic elastomers)

  • The base of our mat is made from natural rubber, whereas most yoga mats are built from TPE. Natural rubber is non-toxic and made wholly or partly from recycled materials.
  • Performance wise, this means that the mat is also firmer; which allows this mat to be thicker and still be supportive – without the sponginess that makes it hard to balance.

Longer & Wider: Size Matters

  • 20% More Surface Area, 12″ longer, and 2″ wider
  • Standard mats are usually 24″ x 68″, Ours are 26″ x 80″
  • More space to practice on, more of a personal buffer for practicing at a yoga studio, don’t have to worry about your feet going off the mat or hands going over the edges

Unrolls flat, stays flat

  • No more break-in period. Roll this mat out as soon as you buy it, and it rolls out flat, and stays flat.
  • Other mats require a block or weights to stay flat, and getting them flat is a cumbersome or sometimes unsuccessful process. Say goodbye to this problem forever!

Built-In Alignment System

  • Ensures proper technique, for maximum safety and effectiveness.
  • Allows you to focus on your body instead of wondering if you’re aligned correctly or not.
  • Prevents pain or discomfort in your knees, back, and shoulders.
  • Helps you prevent injury from improper movement patterns over time.
  • Gets you better results in less time.

Heavy-Duty & 1-Year Warranty

  • More durable, and more rugged than almost any other yoga mat.
  • You can use it anywhere – indoors, outdoors, on cement, or on grass.
  • Tough enough for hot yoga, but nice enough that you won’t mind having it laid out on a living room or office floor.
  • Great for all types of yoga & other types of fitness – even calisthenics or weight training.
  • 1-Year Warranty – We stand by our products. If something goes wrong or you’re unsatisfied, just send an email to results@bodybyyoga.training and we’ll fix it.

We built this alignment system because we’re focused on you getting the best possible workout from your time spent on a yoga mat, and we wanted a yoga mat that would help you do that.

The Built-In Alignment System helps to:

  • Ensures proper technique, for maximum safety and effectiveness.
  • Allows you to focus on your body instead of wondering if you’re aligned correctly or not.
  • Make sure you aren’t contributing to imbalances, or aligning yourself differently on one side vs the other.
  • Prevents pain or discomfort in your knees, back, and shoulders.
  • Helps you prevent injury from improper movement patterns over time.
  • Gets you better results in less time.

How it Works:

  • The markings on this mat are reference points. They are not direct foot or hand placement markers (like the game “Twister”, for example) because it varies from person to person.
  • These markings are universal – they work for everybody. That’s because no matter what your mobility levels are, your feet will always turn out at the same angle for certain positions, and your goal is still to create certain lines with the body.

  • Vertical Bisecting Line
