Cork Yoga Mat

Cork has a unique blend to two qualities making it an ideal choice for a yoga mat surface. Firstly, it is water resistant. Secondly, it is durable and flexible. These traits help us create a truly unique mat that can provide a non slip experience despite a sweaty surface. You can read more about it here.

Cheaper options might appear lucrative in the first instance, but we am sure you've heard this before - You get what you pay for. Most of the cheaper cork yoga mats (and yoga mats in general) are TPE and PVC bases (more info here). These are not very durable in general, and can negatively influence your practice in numerous ways (slipping, lack of support etc). We manufacture our mats with natural rubber as the base. These mats are produced sustainably, and are far more durable.

Your Surya Namaskar cork yoga mat will last for many years. Ofcourse, looking after the mat appropriately can increase the life even more. Most of us in the Surya Namaskar team here have been using our cork yoga mats for 2 years, with absolutely no problem. We only started this brand 2 years ago, so this time span will most likely increase in the future.

Absolutely. We use cork and natural rubber, and both there materials are 100% sustainable, vegan and recyclable.. You can read more about the manufacturing process and environmental impact here.

These mats are perfect for hot yoga. The cork top surface ensures that your slippery hands don’t ruin your downward dog (we’ve been there!). You can read more about it here. You don’t need to use any other towels to stop you from slipping either.

Our mats are primarily created for yoga and pilates. However, these can also be used for more active workouts like HIIT. Some of the Surya Namaskar team members, as well as our happy customers have used it as more of a home or gym workout mat with no problem. Understandably, prolonged use of the mat for high impact exercises with shoes could reduce the lifespan of the mat.

Care and Maintenance

Simply wipe it off with some warm water and a damp cloth. Then, let it air dry before storing it away.

The cork surface is really easy to clean, and the use of soaps or detergents is commonly not necessary. Using these occasionally should not pose any problem. Though, frequent cleaning with strong smelling soaps (or detergents) could change the neutral smell of the mat, and might not be ideal for some yogis.

Avoid folding or creasing the mat. Please roll it up loosely with the cork surface facing out. If the mat does get wet, please let it air dry completely before rolling and storing it.
