Aurorae yoga mats sent over their Northern Lights Sunset Yoga Mat for me to test. This is a really nice yoga mat. I opened up the package and immediately noticed the size. It is a bit wider and quite a bit longer than my old mat. This mat is made from Eco Safe and biodegradable material / SGS approved, world's largest testing agency.
The mat is thinner than my old one but seem denser. You know you can't feel the floor so much through it. Not like overly fluffy just the perfect feel for yoga. I love this mat. It is super comfortable for all yoga postions. With the added length you do not have to repositionyourself all the time to stay on the mat either.
The Northen Lights Mat does not come with a carrying strap or a way to kepp it closed. This is not a problem however because it seems to stay rolled up quite nicely.
Auroae also sent me one of their slip free rosin bags. This little guy is really nice. Just a light pat on the hands and no problems with slippage during your poses. This is especially important if you tend to perspire during your routine.
