Is your News Year’s resolution to get more healthy and have some fun? Yoga is a perfect addition to any exercise program.  You can relax, rest, recuperate and stretch – yoga also helps me get the healing sleep that I need.

I’ve seen so many yoga products over the years and they all are made from plastics and rubbers that are not healthy or beautiful. The wood blocks, though natural, are noisy and heavy…. but you can Get Inspired! Take a look at the beautiful yoga mats and accessories that are available at http://www.corcyoga.com

These beautiful yoga mats will get your NEW YEAR off to a happy, green start.  They are made in Portugal using cork …. a product that is earth friendly, non-slip, created from natural materials and recyclable. These beautiful mats and bags are hypoallergenic, and durable too.

You know that a regular mat is made of PVCs and chemicals — the enduring smelliness tells you that …. and they get slippery and more smelly when wet… besides all that they are hard to clean.

Start with a great material – use Cork products by CorcYoga. They make mats, blocks, bags, backpacks and accessories. Get Bendy and relaxed with an awesome mat. I love mine.
