After much research, we have bought a lovely set of new forest green sticky mats for Studio 1.
These are the best mats for yoga on a wooden floor and provide a firm base on which to anchor our poses.
They do need some wearing in as they have a coating on them when they are new, so we ask that you do as many dog poses as you can for the next couple of weeks to bring them to their optimum performance!
You will also note they are thinner than the orange mats: this is better (no really!): you have more contact with the ground, which is better for balancing poses and for understanding how to work the base of poses better. There are plenty of mats, so if you do need cushioning for some asanas, you can always double them up.
