We've replaced our studio loaner mats with Manduka Studio mats! They are now located on a wall mounted rack by our prop area! Mats are free to borrow (As usual - we ask that you clean them after use with the provided cleaner in our handy basket, then return them to the rack).
Big Heart Yoga now has retail!
If you like the support of our new studio mats, you'll LOVE the support of the variety of Manduka mats for sale in our new retail area!! Manduka makes lovely high end yoga mats that are guaranteed for life! The studio mats are very similar to the Manduka ProLite line of mats. The PRO mats are thicker than the ProLites, and both lines are available in extended lengths. Many of the mats we have in stock are "seasonal colors" and will only be available for a limited amount of time.
Manduka recommends "breaking in" their PRO and ProLite mats with either "practice, practice, practice" or the salt method. The salt method is basically like exfoliating the top of the mat after manufacturing so that the mat becomes a bit stickier faster. Over time and use, these mats become stickier - the salt method jump starts that process a bit. We've broken in all of our new studio mats with salt and love! And I'd be happy to break in your new PRO or ProLite Manduka as well ($20 for that service)!
The "Big Heart Yoga" branded mats are considered "hybrid mats" (like a regular mat and a mat towel combined). They have a microfiber top to them - making them feel a lot like a towel. These mats become stickier the more you sweat. These particular mats are also machine washable and dryable!
We also stock mat carriers (straps), mat cleaner and homemade essential oil blends! Check out our in-studio retail area!
