I recently purchased a great deal on Groupon for some Yoga sessions at a local studio and I could not wait to get started. Recently my life has been “go go go” and I desperately needed to press pause and be in the moment.
Ever since my half marathon, my right knee has been a little finicky and it has been tough to get into some yoga poses (like pigeon pose) without feeling a twinge of pain. I even stack 3 different yoga mats, just to find comfort in my poses…
Obviously, I didn’t want to carry 3 yoga mats with me to a studio so I decided to purchase a new one and I knew exactly what I wanted to get! I have heard so many great things about Aurorae Yoga mats in the blog world so I knew this would be the best choice.
Aurorae has a new line called Northern Light and I was lucky enough to have one sent to me for review and could not wait to get started! Here is brief description of their latest line:
Aurorae Northern Lights Yoga Mat with Golden Sun Focal Icon is the most innovative design that will awaken the energy within you. PER eco-safe material, biodegradable and phthalates free.
With the flow of our universe's solar winds and the magnetic energy from its ultimate source, the sun, Aurorae's Northern Lights has been created. Dance with nature's spirits and from this incredible illumination; draw the power and potential within yourself.
This unique design replicates the natural phenomenon and energy source of Northern Lights. Each individual mat has a uniqueness of its own and no two mats are exactly the same. So find the power and potential within you and live it.
I received the Energy Northern Lights mat and the first thing that caught my attention was how thick it actually was (5 mm thick to absorb impact on joints).
I laid it down to give it a try but someone beat me to it! (Zen Approved!)
I attended my first yoga class with the Energy mat the other night and I loved it. Not once did I feel uncomfortable in any pose because of my knee and I was able to enjoy the class instead of worrying about pain.
One other feature that assisted me during the yoga session was the Golden Sun Focal Icon at the end of the mat, it helped concentrate on a fixed object while I was working on my balance poses.
