Plank Eco-Friendly Yoga Mat Review and Giveaway

Tuesday, August 9, 2011

Do you ever wish you could perform a Sun Salutation on the beach with the waves lapping around you? Or what about holding a tree pose while the sun comes up over the forest? These are the feelings yoga evokes, but to be honest, yoga on the beach or in the forest isn't really as serene as it seems.

There are bugs, people, sand bits, sticks, and uneven ground to make things a little less than calm.... So, let's keep the fantasy and imagine all the calming nature surroundings with an Eco-Friendly yoga mat.

I recently had the opportunity to review the Plank Eco-Friendly Luxe Yoga Mat  in Shag (seen above.) It's almost like doing yoga on the beach - with hands in the sand - minus the dirty sand.

There is a whole collection of Plank Yoga mats with vivid/serene images. That makes your mat unique and kinda green-looking. But the best part is the cooshiness of these mats. I've done my fair share of floor-work and let me tell you that the mat matters!


Plank mats are cooshie and made from sustainable natural rubber. But don't take my word for it - Plank has generously offered the Shag Eco Friendly Yoga Mat to one Suburban Jungle reader.

To Enter to win: Visit Plank and tell me what Plank product is your favorite. Leave a comment on this post.

*This contest will end on August 17, 2011 at 9:00 PM EST. The winner will be selected by random.org. No compensation was received for this posting. This contest is open to all adults 18+ (all countries). The prize will be shipped directly from me. The plank mat being given away was tested by me - I did not remove the protective coating so it is essentially "like new."

As Plank's founder & Creative Director, I am warmed, fuzzied and honoured to read and see so many people liking and sharing Plank's creation.
I really wanted to create products for those of us who love yoga or want our nearest and dearest to try it, that were gifts to them or myself, as theirs or mine being well matters to me... and a big thank you to Angela for sharing that a mat does matter... and that's why you like Plank's luxe yoga mats...
