Be brave & believe ~ you are enough...
Finally, my dream of creating a very special ‘Mindful Mat’ has finally come to life!
To be honest, in the very beginning stages, l was only thinking along the lines of designing a special yoga mat ~ but as time passed by, l realised l wanted to create something so much more than just a typical yoga mat.
Yes, yoga is a massive part of my life, but l wanted something to inspire creativity and promote physical and mental freedom, which is limited often by a chair or sofa…
The Soul Stories Mindful Mat encourages you create your personal space for:
~ stretching out
~ being pro-active
~ yoga practice
~ work out
~ relaxing, inside & outside
I would recommend leaving it unrolled in a special place – so it entices you to crawl onto it as much as possible – trust me it really does work!?! Every opportunity l can get l just want to roll around on it!
The quality of the mat is more than l expected. The 4mm natural rubber comfortably protects your body from any surface underneath and the beautiful microfibre suede on top makes it feel wonderful to touch!
At this stage – eco friendly certified natural rubber can not be printed on directly, which is why ‘Disrupt’s’ custom mats have used an innovative moisture absorbing design.
To say lm just a little bit excited would clearly be an understatement.
Just like the ~ i dream of jeanne ~ tote bags, they are a special limited edition product, 100 mats per design.
Once they sell out, this design will never to be reprinted… Australian made!
Comes with a FREE ‘over the shoulder’ carry strap.
$150 aud for this inspiring piece of art built into an eco friendly Mindful Mat.
*NB ~ If using the Soul Stories ‘Mindful Mat’ as a yoga mat, then the first few practices might feel a little slippy because of the brand new print residue left behind.
Hang in there, it simply needs to be broken in after a few usages. We find a gentle wipe over with a damp cloth enables you to practice perfectly on a grippy Mat
To speed up the process, we recommend wiping down your mat several times with diluted 2 tsp of bicarbonate of soda with a very damp towel – this will start to reduce the slippery feel of the mat immediately.
Once dry, simply wipe down with a damp towel to remove any excess bicarbonate of soda…
Another slip-reducing strategy is by practicing on a slipless towel,
which will also protect your mat in the long run.
These Mindful mats can also be washed with diluted apple vinegar,
either by hand or a very gentle cycle in the washing machine (yes they are that durable). Please do not use a cleaning solution that is too soapy or the soap may leave a slippery residue.
If your mat is lightly soiled, using a spray bottle or damp cloth wet the soiled surface with water then wipe it dry with a clean terry cloth towel.
To decrease the mat’s drying time, lay it on a dry towel and roll the mat and towel together. Step on the rolled up mat and towel to squeeze most of the water from your mat into the towel. Unroll your mat and hang it to air dry.
With use and washing your mat should become softer and stickier
Disrupt’s custom range of yoga mats are lighter, non-slip and easier to clean than traditional mats. They use a nano-grip underside to ensure your downward dog is easy and your plank will hold for as long as you can. Disrupt’s custom mats have used an innovative moisture absorbing design that ensures a longer lifespan and comfort, both in outdoor and indoor surfaces. It is also eco friendly certified ~ the base being made with natural rubber and the top is made from a microfibre suede. Its a leaf and polyester blend, which means no glue, no pvc AND absolutely none of the nasty stuff…
