Hugger Mugger Earth Elements Yoga Mat Review & Giveaway

Posted by Tara Burner 155 comments


A big thanks to Jennifer of HuggerMugger.com who enabled me to review their Earth Elements Yoga Mat and offer an additional one as a giveaway!

Hugger Mugger also gives back to different causes and is planning on continuing that practice.

Not only do they offer the Earth Elements Yoga Mat but they also offer a variety of mats.
They also have yoga straps, bolsters & pillows, and other great items for you too.

Because of recent back and hip issues, I’ve spent some time in child’s pose and this mat is so relaxing for that.

I love this mat.
It’s soft, cushy, thick enough that I don’t feel my hard tile floor under me at 5mm thickness.
This yoga mat has awesome grip power too.
I don’t slide around or lose my footing at all.
It’s long too – measures 24″ wide by 72″ long!
Not to mention, the eco friendly factors!

I like the label too.
It has the Sun Salutation on it.

Details about the Earth Elements Yoga Mat
Made from a newly developed and patented TPE (Thermal Plastic Elastomer) foam, this yoga mat contains no latex, PVC or rubber, and uses no toxic materials in its production. This yoga mat features a closed-cell construction that prevents absorption of fluids, making it easy to keep clean. Earth Elements naturally provides a “dry-sticky” traction unlike our Tapas Original, Ultra and Performance yoga mats, which have a tackier surface. It features an extra soft touch with beautiful colors and textures inspired by nature, for nature. These yoga mats are 72 inches long

And, if you get all caught up in the holiday hustle & bustle that’s going on right now, take a few minutes, grab a Earth Elements Yoga Mat and breathe. (shirt from Divine Blessings)

One lucky winner will win the blue Hugger Mugger Earth Elements Yoga Mat pictured here:

Retail Value: $52.95
Contest open until Jan 1, 2011 11:59 p.m.
Winner will be announced on Jan 2, 2012 via email.

I really appreciate the fact that the Earth Elements Yoga Mat is eco friendly. I have owned ones that were not, and I do wonder what has become of them after I have thrown them out. I spend so much time on my mat in bare skin, it’s important there are no chemicals either. I am always a fan of companies that give back to the community, and it’s great to know Hugger Mugger donates a percentage of their sales.
