NEW YOGA MATS AND OTHER PROPS!
Right so everyone has been asking about new mats and that’s really great to hear!! I am not ordering beginner mats though…those you can already get most sports stores here in TnT. I am only ordering specialty mats for those of you who are ready to graduate.Unfortunately the Utopian Sticky Mat like mine, is no longer being produced. The Jade Mat I also used to sell, while it had an awesome grip, I have found doesn’t stand up to the heat and gets slippery on the floor pretty quick for the kind of money you spend on it. I also didn’t want to go with the mats that everyone already has here so I did some research to find alternatives. These are the mats that I am going to go with both listed in the top 10…
1. The Liforme Mat and
2. The BMat
I have put together a catalogue of sorts so that you can see what will be available.
It would also be great if you were interested in a mat to let me know beforehand so that I don’t over order right now.
Whatsapp me at 730-YOGA to let me know, nah?
LIFORME YOGA MATS…
These are the standard colours…
And I also ordered the LOVE Mat (red) and the Happiness Mat (orange)…
Here are the ratings on Amazon…
This is one of the most popular mats right now and I found out about it from Sindy…a guest instructor here from Toronto. She completely RAVED about it!
Here are the Specs
Natural Rubber base and Liforme’s unique eco-polyurethane top surface.

B MAT YOGA MATS…
These are the standard colours. I was drawn to them because of their bright colours. But they are also a bit cheaper. They do not come with fancy designs or packaging or a mat bag and that’s what they sell…SIMPLICITY. It’s a Canadian brand and I heard about from my friends in other yoga studios there…
including our very own…DANEA!!! She has the Saffron mat!
HERE ARE THE RATINGS!
My intention is to order the standard length and the extra long in these mats.
The 6mm is comparable to the Manduka Pro and the 4mm is comparable to the Manduka ProLite
The standard length is comparable to Manduka and Liforme, but their extra long measurement is as follows:
At the end of the day, no mat is perfect…I just realized that the Manduka was PVC…alllll this time I thought it was a sturdy natural rubber…this explains why I always found the mat to be slippery for me. The Liforme is great, but could do with some more length. And while the BMat is so gorgeous with its bright colours, it will require a bit of extra care to clean the bright colours, but Danea says is quite easy and she loves her Saffron mat!
Strong (6mm) **Approx. $850TT (Regular length, 5lbs); **Approx. $950TT (Extra Long, 5.8lbs)
Everyday (4mm) **Approx. $700TT (Regular length, 4.1lbs); **Approx. $800TT (Extra Long, 4.5lbs)
**These mat prices are not dictated by the company and can only be finalized as soon as they clear customs etc. These prices are based on the shippers best guesstimate to clear.
Which mat you choose is totally dependent on the weight you think you can handle and how much travelling you have to do with it and the cushioning you need for your knees. The thicker, the more cushioning, the thinner, the lighter to walk around with.
