Choosing a Travel Yoga Mat

1
00:00:01,159 –> 00:00:04,770
hey guys let’s talk about yoga mats and

2
00:00:04,770 –> 00:00:06,930
traveling in particular with yoga mats

3
00:00:06,930 –> 00:00:09,870
so I’ve got three here so I’m by no

4
00:00:09,870 –> 00:00:11,490
means an expert because I’ve only ever

5
00:00:11,490 –> 00:00:14,099
owned a few yoga mats found one that I

6
00:00:14,099 –> 00:00:17,039
love this one and I’ve been sticking to

7
00:00:17,039 –> 00:00:18,779
it so I really haven’t had the need for

8
00:00:18,779 –> 00:00:21,060
a lot but I have a few more and so let’s

9
00:00:21,060 –> 00:00:23,580
talk about it so if you’re looking to

10
00:00:23,580 –> 00:00:25,890
travel the biggest question you gotta

11
00:00:25,890 –> 00:00:27,990
ask yourself is what is your traveling

12
00:00:27,990 –> 00:00:30,090
intention so if you’re looking to

13
00:00:30,090 –> 00:00:33,210
bringing yoga mat with you what’s your

14
00:00:33,210 –> 00:00:35,790
reasoning if you’re going to a yoga

15
00:00:35,790 –> 00:00:37,260
training it might be a good idea to

16
00:00:37,260 –> 00:00:38,940
bring a really really awesome yoga mat

17
00:00:38,940 –> 00:00:41,430
that you can really wear and tear on and

18
00:00:41,430 –> 00:00:43,530
kind of expensive because that’s your

19
00:00:43,530 –> 00:00:45,510
purpose is yoga it’s the intention or

20
00:00:45,510 –> 00:00:47,879
the fitness or whatever it is if you’re

21
00:00:47,879 –> 00:00:49,739
going just for like a weekend business

22
00:00:49,739 –> 00:00:50,879
conference you might want something

23
00:00:50,879 –> 00:00:52,440
that’s just like you just want your

24
00:00:52,440 –> 00:00:54,449
hands dirty so you for spring this like

25
00:00:54,449 –> 00:00:56,610
little cheap thing so there’s a couple

26
00:00:56,610 –> 00:00:59,340
reasons you just got to think about why

27
00:00:59,340 –> 00:01:01,350
am i bringing a yoga mat with me

28
00:01:01,350 –> 00:01:02,789
traveling I believe everyone should

29
00:01:02,789 –> 00:01:04,680
bring yoga mat with their them when they

30
00:01:04,680 –> 00:01:06,659
travel you could do Airport yoga you

31
00:01:06,659 –> 00:01:08,040
could you know it’s a great way just

32
00:01:08,040 –> 00:01:10,320
simple without weights and all that kind

33
00:01:10,320 –> 00:01:11,850
of stuff you don’t need a whole lot of

34
00:01:11,850 –> 00:01:14,700
space you could just you know you don’t

35
00:01:14,700 –> 00:01:16,470
even need a yoga mat really you can do

36
00:01:16,470 –> 00:01:19,049
as stretches or anything anywhere but if

37
00:01:19,049 –> 00:01:21,600
you are an avid yogi or you do like the

38
00:01:21,600 –> 00:01:23,430
practice of yoga why not bring yoga

39
00:01:23,430 –> 00:01:26,009
mouths let’s talk about it and a few

40
00:01:26,009 –> 00:01:28,259
three options actually and I’m making

41
00:01:28,259 –> 00:01:30,329
this video because I just got one I got

42
00:01:30,329 –> 00:01:32,670
a new yoga mat in the mail today that I

43
00:01:32,670 –> 00:01:34,409
was gonna bring traveling with me I’m

44
00:01:34,409 –> 00:01:35,579
not gonna bring it anymore and you’ll

45
00:01:35,579 –> 00:01:37,740
see why so the first thing first when I

46
00:01:37,740 –> 00:01:39,509
have that absolutely love these are all

47
00:01:39,509 –> 00:01:41,810
travel style mats this is the lack of

48
00:01:41,810 –> 00:01:42,960
Manduca

49
00:01:42,960 –> 00:01:45,090
throw light I got this a couple years

50
00:01:45,090 –> 00:01:47,040
ago actually about two and a half before

51
00:01:47,040 –> 00:01:48,960
my first yoga training and I did bring

52
00:01:48,960 –> 00:01:51,180
this to my yoga training I traveled and

53
00:01:51,180 –> 00:01:53,640
by car so it’s a little bit heavy not

54
00:01:53,640 –> 00:01:55,860
too bad it’s not as heaviest um this is

55
00:01:55,860 –> 00:01:57,540
about four pounds four point four I

56
00:01:57,540 –> 00:02:00,689
waited on my scale it was $75 I got it

57
00:02:00,689 –> 00:02:03,080
on Amazon and these things Manduca man

58
00:02:03,080 –> 00:02:04,970
actually get better with time there is a

59
00:02:04,970 –> 00:02:07,190
10 year warranty but this one’s like the

60
00:02:07,190 –> 00:02:09,080
more I use it the stickier the better it

61
00:02:09,080 –> 00:02:11,510
gets so it’s a great function functional

62
00:02:11,510 –> 00:02:13,850
for everything if you’re doing hot yoga

63
00:02:13,850 –> 00:02:15,920
you can always add a towel to the top of

64
00:02:15,920 –> 00:02:18,230
it if you get slippery this is just I

65
00:02:18,230 –> 00:02:20,270
just love it so I think I will have this

66
00:02:20,270 –> 00:02:24,770
one forever another option would be just

67
00:02:24,770 –> 00:02:27,020
like I said if you’re just a weekend

68
00:02:27,020 –> 00:02:29,660
traveler and just want a yoga mat for a

69
00:02:29,660 –> 00:02:31,730
little little practice here and there

70
00:02:31,730 –> 00:02:33,020
you might want just something that’s a

71
00:02:33,020 –> 00:02:34,700
little bit cheaper and that’s a little

72
00:02:34,700 –> 00:02:38,720
more less durable this one is probably

73
00:02:38,720 –> 00:02:40,910
retails for between 10 and 20 dollars so

74
00:02:40,910 –> 00:02:43,250
it’s a really just easy rubber little

75
00:02:43,250 –> 00:02:45,170
yoga mat so this is the one that you

76
00:02:45,170 –> 00:02:46,490
just wouldn’t get your hands dirty it’s

77
00:02:46,490 –> 00:02:48,560
not the best if you’re looking for a

78
00:02:48,560 –> 00:02:50,690
super hard awesome practice you probably

79
00:02:50,690 –> 00:02:51,590
want something with a little more

80
00:02:51,590 –> 00:02:53,900
cushion or that is a little more durable

81
00:02:53,900 –> 00:02:55,570
but this one’s a great option for

82
00:02:55,570 –> 00:02:57,709
travelers it’s just a simple one that

83
00:02:57,709 –> 00:02:59,240
way if you get in trouble for bringing

84
00:02:59,240 –> 00:03:00,920
it you can just throw it away

85
00:03:00,920 –> 00:03:04,010
do be do this is the one I just got in

86
00:03:04,010 –> 00:03:06,050
the mail it’s really awesome because

87
00:03:06,050 –> 00:03:08,900
it’s got a cool pattern it’s called it’s

88
00:03:08,900 –> 00:03:11,690
from yoga design lab and actually this

89
00:03:11,690 –> 00:03:14,720
black strap came with it but this is the

90
00:03:14,720 –> 00:03:16,459
one I wanted to travel with I thought

91
00:03:16,459 –> 00:03:19,010
would be super cool because it’s compact

92
00:03:19,010 –> 00:03:22,400
it rolls up really tightly notice we

93
00:03:22,400 –> 00:03:25,040
could do all this stuff in behind ya and

94
00:03:25,040 –> 00:03:27,019
you can probably you can probably whack

95
00:03:27,019 –> 00:03:28,610
somebody with it and hurt them pretty

96
00:03:28,610 –> 00:03:31,670
hard so great for traveling right not so

97
00:03:31,670 –> 00:03:33,739
much so what I realized what this is I

98
00:03:33,739 –> 00:03:35,810
don’t do a lot of hot yoga if you’re

99
00:03:35,810 –> 00:03:37,760
doing a hot yoga training and you’re

100
00:03:37,760 –> 00:03:39,170
looking for something that’s like this

101
00:03:39,170 –> 00:03:40,100
is like a towel

102
00:03:40,100 –> 00:03:45,350
velvety nice texture and a really great

103
00:03:45,350 –> 00:03:47,660
rubber back for sticking but the towel

104
00:03:47,660 –> 00:03:50,510
portion of it it’s for hot yoga so you

105
00:03:50,510 –> 00:03:52,220
do need to get this a little bit wet or

106
00:03:52,220 –> 00:03:54,410
sweaty before he actually really is got

107
00:03:54,410 –> 00:03:56,640
a good grip to it

108
00:03:56,640 –> 00:03:59,580
the awesome thing about this patterns

109
00:03:59,580 –> 00:04:00,570
are so fun

110
00:04:00,570 –> 00:04:03,690
this is the geometrical one this is the

111
00:04:03,690 –> 00:04:07,350
yoga towel it’s the yoga tell combo so

112
00:04:07,350 –> 00:04:09,330
it is like you know a towel on the side

113
00:04:09,330 –> 00:04:11,160
mat on this side you can sort of and

114
00:04:11,160 –> 00:04:13,830
wash machine it’s great I thought this

115
00:04:13,830 –> 00:04:15,450
would be a great option for traveling

116
00:04:15,450 –> 00:04:18,209
and I thought differently after I

117
00:04:18,209 –> 00:04:20,430
received it the biggest reason is it’s

118
00:04:20,430 –> 00:04:21,450
really heavy

119
00:04:21,450 –> 00:04:24,210
it’s really heavy it’s heavier than this

120
00:04:24,210 –> 00:04:26,250
one this one’s four point four pounds I

121
00:04:26,250 –> 00:04:28,230
weighed this one it said on the thing

122
00:04:28,230 –> 00:04:30,450
that I was three pounds I was like okay

123
00:04:30,450 –> 00:04:31,560
three pounds that’s not bad

124
00:04:31,560 –> 00:04:33,960
and it shipped in a box that was six

125
00:04:33,960 –> 00:04:35,670
pounds and I weighed it and I was like

126
00:04:35,670 –> 00:04:37,830
over four and a half pounds so it’s

127
00:04:37,830 –> 00:04:40,050
really heavy although it’s compact and

128
00:04:40,050 –> 00:04:44,040
thin very thin it’s okay and that’s one

129
00:04:44,040 –> 00:04:45,570
big thing I cannot have when I’m

130
00:04:45,570 –> 00:04:47,580
traveling especially this upcoming

131
00:04:47,580 –> 00:04:49,950
traveling so but if you are again if

132
00:04:49,950 –> 00:04:51,330
you’re doing like a weekend thing maybe

133
00:04:51,330 –> 00:04:53,490
you are doing a hot yoga or you’re going

134
00:04:53,490 –> 00:04:56,430
to a yoga studio in that city that you

135
00:04:56,430 –> 00:04:57,990
know it’s gonna be hot this would be a

136
00:04:57,990 –> 00:04:59,580
great travel companion that’s great

137
00:04:59,580 –> 00:05:00,390
that’s awesome

138
00:05:00,390 –> 00:05:03,660
but because what I’m doing in next week

139
00:05:03,660 –> 00:05:05,730
is actually I’m going for a month in

140
00:05:05,730 –> 00:05:07,620
Europe and so I have to travel really

141
00:05:07,620 –> 00:05:10,980
light and for lightness this is not it

142
00:05:10,980 –> 00:05:13,290
this is heavy so I’m really disappointed

143
00:05:13,290 –> 00:05:15,120
because I bought this one on Amazon

144
00:05:15,120 –> 00:05:18,360
fifty four dollars and I will keep it

145
00:05:18,360 –> 00:05:20,250
because I teach you the hot yoga studio

146
00:05:20,250 –> 00:05:21,960
and I could use it as much as I want

147
00:05:21,960 –> 00:05:27,200
there but not when I travel to Europe

148
00:05:27,200 –> 00:05:29,310
maybe one in travel elsewhere but not to

149
00:05:29,310 –> 00:05:32,220
Europe so this one this is why I put the

150
00:05:32,220 –> 00:05:34,040
strap on this this one’s coming with me

151
00:05:34,040 –> 00:05:37,169
this for this travel adventure one

152
00:05:37,169 –> 00:05:38,940
because it’s like two and a half pounds

153
00:05:38,940 –> 00:05:41,669
really light and I thought this one was

154
00:05:41,669 –> 00:05:44,850
more compact and it’s it’s not it’s not

155
00:05:44,850 –> 00:05:47,160
much different so yes this one’s coming

156
00:05:47,160 –> 00:05:50,790
with me super excited so when you think

157
00:05:50,790 –> 00:05:52,919
about travel traveling with the yoga mat

158
00:05:52,919 –> 00:05:55,050
just think about what your intention for

159
00:05:55,050 –> 00:05:57,660
that mat is I went to yoga trainings

160
00:05:57,660 –> 00:05:59,880
with this one I have flown carry-on

161
00:05:59,880 –> 00:06:02,340
I have taken yoga mats on my carry-on

162
00:06:02,340 –> 00:06:04,010
either like

163
00:06:04,010 –> 00:06:05,960
with my carry-on like it’s just an extra

164
00:06:05,960 –> 00:06:07,880
thing they see that it’s a yoga mat so

165
00:06:07,880 –> 00:06:08,870
they’re like you know whatever just

166
00:06:08,870 –> 00:06:11,120
bring it and I’ve also had it like

167
00:06:11,120 –> 00:06:13,010
sticking out of a backpack

168
00:06:13,010 –> 00:06:15,380
I’ve also strapped it to the top of a

169
00:06:15,380 –> 00:06:17,510
suitcase and put it on the top there as

170
00:06:17,510 –> 00:06:19,460
long as it’s attached it’s fine I have

171
00:06:19,460 –> 00:06:21,770
never had anyone say anything about my

172
00:06:21,770 –> 00:06:24,440
yoga mats on my carry-ons they’ve

173
00:06:24,440 –> 00:06:26,150
actually it’s a great conversation

174
00:06:26,150 –> 00:06:27,860
starter you get a lot of people being

175
00:06:27,860 –> 00:06:29,390
like so what do you do though what

176
00:06:29,390 –> 00:06:31,310
you’re doing young and that’s so cool so

177
00:06:31,310 –> 00:06:33,130
it gets talked about what you’re doing

178
00:06:33,130 –> 00:06:36,860
so picking yoga mats up to you there are

179
00:06:36,860 –> 00:06:38,300
other options as well like towels

180
00:06:38,300 –> 00:06:40,160
there’s foldable baths

181
00:06:40,160 –> 00:06:43,040
there’s a lot of them so think about why

182
00:06:43,040 –> 00:06:44,840
you’re going why are you needing yoga

183
00:06:44,840 –> 00:06:48,260
mat and letting you know that this one

184
00:06:48,260 –> 00:06:50,740
is the one I’m bringing to Europe and

185
00:06:50,740 –> 00:06:53,630
before I leave if I wouldn’t be too sad

186
00:06:53,630 –> 00:06:55,490
if I had to you know throw it away like

187
00:06:55,490 –> 00:06:58,970
I said toss it this one is like my baby

188
00:06:58,970 –> 00:07:01,340
this is my yoga mat that I’ve always

189
00:07:01,340 –> 00:07:03,200
used so I would be really disappointed

190
00:07:03,200 –> 00:07:06,770
if I had to get rid of it or if I had to

191
00:07:06,770 –> 00:07:09,860
pay like 25 or 35 dollars to check the

192
00:07:09,860 –> 00:07:13,820
bag instead so here it is men do the mat

193
00:07:13,820 –> 00:07:15,620
I would recommend this one to any anyone

194
00:07:15,620 –> 00:07:17,810
if you’re traveling maybe go something

195
00:07:17,810 –> 00:07:20,540
cheaper if you’re doing hot yoga this

196
00:07:20,540 –> 00:07:23,390
wouldn’t be an option but anyway that’s

197
00:07:23,390 –> 00:07:25,100
all I got for you today just wanted to

198
00:07:25,100 –> 00:07:27,380

199
00:07:27,380 –> 00:00:00,000
