Gaiam Athletic

If having a lot of space is essential for you, you will benefit from investing in a duraMAT designed by Gaiam. Not only is it wider and longer than a traditional yoga mat but it also features a dura-dense technology that provides you with firm support and long-lasting performance.

Built from compressed PVC, it offers the cushioning that you will come to appreciate. You can use either one of its sides – a smooth one for extra stickiness and a textured one for a better grip – to attempt a wide variety of poses. There is even a possibility to spread yourself on the mat and meditate in Savasana due to its substantial dimensions.

Take it out with you to the beach to add some breeziness and fresh air to your practice, or practice at home in front of the TV if you are just starting out. Either way, you are guaranteed to have a good time with the duraMAT in use.
