Grace’s Pick of the Week:
Barefoot Yoga’s New Performance Grip Mat

Grace’s product Pick of the Week is our brand new Barefoot Yoga Performance Grip Mat: “I’m excited to announce this new mat. This high performance mat is a dense mat with superior traction and made to last. It is affordable and an excellent value if you are looking for a mat that is also durable. One side has a pebble-like texture and the other a matte finish. It is recommended that you roll your mat with the ‘dots’ facing outward to prevent your mat corners from flipping up. Personally, I would use both sides, switching between them, to reduce wear and tear on one side. Both sides offer excellent traction. At 5 pounds, it is a little heavier that most standard mats, but still light enough you can tote it to class.”

Using the Wall as a Prop

It is very common to use props in a yoga practice. Yoga Props help with alignment and do the pose that is right for your body. There is no stronger prop than the wall. It is there like a steadfast friend, always at your back, or wherever you need it most. Use the wall with you legs straight up the wall for sivasana or to help you square your hips in warrior 3. There are so too many poses you can do at the wall to mention here but it will certainly help with your practice.
