Why are cork mats so popular?
Cork is a natural material , very trendy in all gyms, yoga studios, pilates enthusiasts and of course yogis and yoginis!
The natural characteristics of cork make it a material of choice in various fields of application, in particular in yoga articles , pilates, for cork yoga mats but also cork accessories, such as yoga bricks .
🧘🏻♀️ Here are the MANY benefits of opting for a CORK YOGA MAT:
🌸 100% NATURAL RECYCLABLE and RENEWABLE:
Cork is a material of natural origin that can be extracted from the tree by hand without harming it. Cork regenerates over time. It allows a sustainable balance between agroforestry management and human action. It is in line with current trends in natural materials, it falls into the category of vegetable leather. It is a clear example of circular economy.
🌸 HYPER LIGHT - FEATHER WEIGHT
The lightest material that exists!
Lightness: 90% of cork cells are occupied by air.
A cork yoga mat is 2 times lighter than a rubber yoga mat, which is an undeniable advantage!
🌸 SOFTNESS and PLEASURE
Very pleasant to the touch, you will be amazed!
You thought cork was rather rough, a bit like bottle corks? Well, you will be amazed at this peach skin effect...
🌸 EXCELLENT GRIP
Cork yoga mats or cork overlays are naturally adherent: the more you sweat, the more they adhere, which makes them particularly interesting for dynamic yoga such as vinasaya yoga, bikram yoga, ashtanga flow...
If you tend to sweat profusely during your yoga practice or have sweaty palms, cork yoga blocks and cork yoga mats are waterproof! No risk of slipping!
In addition, sweat (or rain if you practice outdoors) will not penetrate the material.
🌸 ANTIBACTERIAL and HYPOALLERGENIC
Very hygienic, cork is a natural antimicrobial and anti-odour. Say goodbye to carpet deodorizing spray! You won't need it.
🌸 THERMAL INSULATION
Ideal for isolating yourself from cold ground in winter or hot ground if you practice on hot ground, the cork yoga mat definitely has only advantages!
🌸 HIGH RESISTANCE to movement also called “high coefficient of friction”
🌸 ELASTICITY AND FLEXIBILITY
In other words, your cork accessory is UNDEFORMABLE :-)
The high air content of its cells allows it to be compressed up to almost half without losing flexibility and recovering its shape and volume when it ceases to be under pressure.
Thanks to these properties, your cork yoga items are resistant over time and will accompany you for a very long time. In other words, a cork yoga mat is a very good investment!
And finally, the MAINTENANCE of your CORK MAT …
With water and a little soap if it is stained… simply :-)
Beautiful models are offered to adapt to the tastes and aesthetic expectations of each of us!
And without forgetting the YOGA BAG in Liège , waterproof, very soft and sublime!
