Lotus is the national flower of India. It grows in mud and rises above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty. The lotus flower represents long life, health, honor and good luck. Our yoga mat is thicker and more luxurious than most children’s mats.
The cushion-y texture provides a comfortable pad for play. The mat is perfect for yoga, but also great as a play mat, sleeping pad or surface for an outdoor picnic. The Little Yoga Mat is biodegradable, recyclable and hypoallergenic.
It is BPA, latex, PVC, formamide and lead-free. The mats are lightweight with a non-slip grip and clean easily with soap and water. Our yoga inspired designs are printed with eco-friendly ink. Research shows that if you start early and start young by introducing your child to a healthy lifestyle that includes yoga, the seed will be planted.
Made of TPE (thermoplastic elastomer), an eco-friendly foam-like material.
14" x 36"
Good for ages 0-4 (Have an older child? Try the Tree Mat for ages 4 and up!)
The Little Yoga Mat Story:
"After happily volunteering to teach yoga at my daughter’s New York City pre-school, I realized I had some basic logistical problems. How would I teach yoga to 20 children in a space that only holds 10 adult yoga mats?
As a yoga teacher, I always had extra mats around the apartment but not one small enough for my daughter, so one night my husband and I cut an adult mat into four small mats. They were just the right size to give to the kids in my daughter's class.
The boys and girls loved them. The teachers loved them. We were on to something. The children loved having a mat their size. The teachers discovered that the mats helped the kids know where to do their yoga poses. No more running around. Everyone got focused.
My daughter proudly carried hers while strolling to and from school. Many moms stopped and asked, “What an adorable mat. Where can I buy one?”
And the idea of developing The Little Yoga Mat was born. To all the budding yoginis out there, I invite you to begin your yoga journey with The Little Yoga Mat."
