hippyshopper points us to a new option for yoga mats. In truth it had occurred to me that the bright purple mat I use for Pilates seemed a little, shall we say, shiny and synthetic. And so it is. These yoga mats are natural and even biodegradable, which conjures up images for me of doing yoga in the woods and then just leaving your mat there to be absorbed by the forest around it. But then, I'm a bit strange.
