Meditation mats provide support to the body so that the body can achieve that optimum posture and desired spinal alignment. Basically, a meditation mat configures the spine according to the sitting posture of lotus, half-lotus or a kneeling posture. The scientific reason of using meditation mat is to reduce the spinal stress. The ultimate aim is to make one s sittting sessions even more effective whilst reducing potential physical harm. Ultimately, the key factor is to create the best physical condition so that the path to Nirvana is as unhindered as possible....

The Yoga Mat also helps you characterize your own space. Whether it is in a gym, or a studio, or anywhere for that matter, the Yoga Mat settles your personal domain. As a result it is crucial to know the different kinds of Yoga Mats. This is in order to give you an idea about which Yoga Mat will serve you best. In gyms and Yoga centers, and ashramas, it s routine and humdrum to use a Yoga mat. Nowadays, on account of its grip, it s also called a sticky mat. The Yoga Mat also provides the all important cushioning on a hard floor, we mentioned above. If you are just beginning you4 Yoga practices, you might not want to buy a Yoga Mat right there and then. Most Yoga centers, ashramas and studios rent out mats, by and large for a dollar or two per session. The disadvantage of such mats is that a lot of people have probably been on them before you, and they could turn malodorous between sessions. You can buy Yoga mats for as little as 15. In fact, lots of studios will let you store your mat with them. That is if you become a regular student.

Yoga mats are used for insulating the body from floor temperature. Try to use 6ft. 3ft. Mat can be of Kusa or other grass, woollen carpet, well tanned hide. The main purpose is hygienic security, comfort and uniformity of temperature by insulation against ground contact.

Hello everybody, Yoga is a gentle exercise that can help align the body, ease the mind, and restore a sense of balance and wholeness to your life and one essential piece of yoga equipment is indeed the Yoga mat. Energy must be allowed free circulation throughout the body and it is said that a proper meditation cushion allows these physical as well as spiritual dynamics to happen. Perhaps this is the reason why in the age old days the rishis used to meditate sitting on the tiger skin. In the modern day, a yoga sticky mat gives your hands and feet some traction and allows you to assume the different postures without fear of slipping and sliding and also aids in the physical as well as spiritual dynamics to happen
