With the warm weather came a renewed pledge to get in shape (we forgot just how painful that can be). So we've been running and faithfully doing our Baron Baptiste yoga DVD. Which brings us to the subject of green yoga mats.
Yoga itself seems so naturally Zen, so intrinsically good -- how could any yoga mats not be green?
Well, apparently, some aren't.
With piqued interest, we read this recent post at Feel Good Style about green yoga mats.
Some yoga mats are actually made of materials that off-gas harmful chemicals. Gross. Our yoga mat is so old we doubt there's anything left to off-gas (we also doubt that it is green in any way -- we bought it years ago at Target).
But, if any of you are looking into purchasing a yoga mat anytime soon, we highly recommend reading Feel Good Style's roundup of green yoga mats. It's a good place to start.
