Do you know that a yoga mat can be an invisible threat to your health?
100.000/cm3 – THIS IS THE NUMBER OF BACTERIA
WHICH CAN GROW ON YOUR YOGA MAT AFTER WORKOUTS OR PRACTICING YOGA. IN FACT, DURING YOUR PRACTICE, YOU ELIMINATE TOXINS FROM YOUR BODY BY SWEATING WHICH CAUSES THE BAD ODORS OF YOUR YOGA MAT AND UNTIL TODAY, THERE WAS NOT REAL SOLUTIONS TO ASSESS THIS PROBLEM.
What are the benefits from practicing the activity you love if you can develop diseases?
Yoga is one of the healthiest activities that makes you feel good and heals your body, allows you to to gain back the range of movements that your body is designed to have and to develop qualities of mind such as patience, hope, faith, love. However, the worldwide success of this discipline brought another significant issue. I’m talking about the massive production of yoga mats and props that most of the time are made of PVC, plastic or toxic materials. Today the ecofriendly solutions are very limited and very expensive. Most of the time, they are not biodegradable and sustainable, causing a catastrophic impact on our Mother Earth, not to mention that they constantly release toxic particles dangerous for your health.
This is why we created SoulMat Yoga, the world’s first germ-free, nanotech, ecofriendly cork yoga mat.
