It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of yoga. While, I wouldn’t go quite as far as to call myself a “yogi”, in addition to a good strong martini, my regular yoga class is one of the things I miss most about non-pregnant life. It was really challenging and I loved pushing myself even harder each week. Now that I’m well into pregnancy, I’ve found that even prenatal yoga is fun and can really help relieve some of the back pain that comes along with carrying the lil’ guy front and center. Plus, without that good strong martini something needs to help destress me after a long day at work, ha!
So, needless to say, when Plank asked if I would review one of their yoga mats I immediately said, YES! I was thrilled when it arrived, and while the “spilled pills on the bathroom floor,” motif may at first glance be unusual, I think it’s quirky and kind of hilarious. Plus, it’s much more eye catching than the standard pink or blue mat. I mean, if that design doesn’t strike up a conversation in the prenatal yoga class, I don’t know what will!
After giving the mat a thorough test drive, I’m even more in lurve. It’s got both great length for all those downward facing dogs, and a strong grip that works on both carpet and harder surfaces. For me this is really important since I like to go both to classes, as well as squeeze in a few minutes at home (BTW did you know you can find free classes on You Tube? Perfect for traveling or squeezing in ten minutes here and there!). Overall I would rate Plank’s yoga mat highly, especially if you like quality products with unique design. It truly blows away my poor ol’ mat from Target. You can check out all of Plank’s offerings here!
