‘‘I bring b-AIR mat everywhere I go!‘‘
This b-AIR yoga mat is the mat I was given as a gift. And after nearly a month of use, I decided to write an article sharing my experiences on this mat.
Perhaps any yogi wishes to have a good mat because it will help us practice asanas more easily. What is a good mat, how to define a good one?
First of all, for me, the mat material must be safe for health. There are many types of yoga mats, made from PVC, TPE, artificial rubber and natural rubber. And of course if you own a biodegradable, natural rubber mat, this will be more safe for your health and it is also environmentally friendly.
And B-air is a safe and friendly mat. B-air is made of natural rubber, so when you peel off the carpet, it smells rubber. So it took me the first 2-3 days to get it of the smell because I was a little sensitive to the smell. But after I spread it out for about 3 days, the smell disappeared. Now after nearly 1 month, I hold the carpet to inhale forever and smell nothing. And I like that. CARPET WITHOUT SMELL 😁
And good yoga mats are mats with good grip. Good grip can help Yogi practice Asana without slipping.
B-air has good grip. Although the surface of B-air carpet is quite smooth, but maybe because of rubber mats, B-air grip I appreciate. Although the first time I touched the carpet, I felt a bit slippery. I contacted Beinks on this issue and got the answer that for a new mat, there is a very thin layer of oil to preserve the carpet. Once the oil layer has gone away, the mat will become grippier. And up to this point, I feel like the answer is right, it doesn't feel like it was at the beginning.
In terms of design, I really like it, I really like gentle pastel tones. Even though my mat is quite bright, it will be dirty easily if used outdoors. So it needs to be cleaned regularly. I often clean carpet once a week.
About the thickness, B-air is a travel mat, so I can't ask for it to be soft and cushioning, because the carpet is only 1.5mm thin. But the advantage of a travel mat is that you can take it wherever you go. Normally I go to practice or teach, there are mats in the studios, I usually layer B-air on top, just have the support / cushion of the mat underneath, and I do not have to worry about sharing unsanitary mats already used by others. There are pros and cons. The mat is thin, so those who have knee pain will not be able to use it without a cushion underneath. As for me, I often practice Vinyasa, so the thin mat doesn't really matter, or I go to teach too, mainly modeling, it doesn't matter much.
Currently, B-air is "my favorite"! Everywhere I go, I bring it along. Sometimes I feel like it is an ornament for myself, not a practice mat anymore.
I would recommend this to a friend
