This past year I have had to change my exercise routine from mostly cardio classes to exercising at the gym only or at home due to my health taking a bit of a hit by a series of bronchitis flare ups and resulting asthma attacks.
So, when Aurorae asked me, if I would be interested in testing out their Aurorae Synergy Yoga Mat-Towel I was more than eager to give it a try. In the exercise classes, I’ve always had a problem with my hands getting sweaty and slipping during certain exercises such as planks, mountain climbers and such, and so I was excited to see, if the Aurorae Synergy Yoga Mat and Towel actually worked better than the regular exercise mats we have in the gym class or the numerous yoga mats I’ve tried out at home throughout the past many years.
The Aurorae Synergy Yoga Mat-Towel is definitely unique, and it is obvious as soon as you pull it out of its box. The soft top layer is soft like a towel, while the bottom is more of a regular exercise mat material.
My first test was of course the plank, which is one of my favorite exercise moves, although it can be difficult to carry out for more than 30 seconds at a time with a slippery mat and sweaty hands. The Aurorae Synergy Yoga Mat-Towel is definitely a better fit with the plank than my usual exercise mats, and it is extremely comfortable to do yoga on. I will admit it, I need yoga in my life, because life in a house with three boys can be quite stressful. My 21-month-old old daughter only naps on rare occasions, and so the Aurorae Synergy Yoga Mat-Towel is more used for toddler-mom exercises than actual yoga these days, because once I pull out the mat, Bellamy Blue immediately comes to sit on top of me, no matter what yoga pose I’m in.
In fact, the Aurorae Synergy Yoga Mat-Towel has become quite popular in our home of four very active, very dance happy kids, and Bellamy Blue seems to think that the Aurorae Synergy Yoga Mat is her personal ballet/gymnastics mats. This little girls is one big energy bundles, and she will dance in her little tutu until the wee hours of the night if she could.
Of course, Bellamy Blue is not the only one who is a big fan of the Aurorae Synergy Yoga Mat, because her big brothers are also keen to breaking into a dance, or showing up whichever new exercise they’ve learned at PE, and the new mat from Aurorae provides such a soft surface on top of our hard, cold tile floors that the mat is out almost every day, even if I am not exercising or doing yoga.
It sure is a good thing that the Aurorae Synergy Yoga Mat and Towel is washable, because with all the activity it needs to be cleaned thoroughly once in a while, so that I can actually do yoga in nice clean, soft conditions. I have washed Yoga Mat every couple of weeks, and it seems to be holding up very well. We do have a front-loading machine though, which is definitely a lot more gentle than a top-loading machine, and I would not recommend washing it in a top loading machine.
What’s so great about the Aurorae Synergy Yoga Mat and Towel:
The Aurorae Pledge Candles are soy candles made of 100 percents soy wax. We’ve been pleasantly surprised about the subtle and relaxing scent of the Aurorae Pledge Candles, and we love lighting it for family dinners, which tend to be quite chaotic a need a little piece of calmness added.
