Yoga Mat Giveaway

Tomuno is an eco-friendly yoga mat company and a Boston-based small business.

The mats are sold in places like Sports Club LA and leading yoga studios around the country.

Tomunu mats are natural mats. The rubber is harvested from actual rubber trees, rather than typical yoga mats which are plastic. Switching to a mat like this is an eco-friendly and green choice.

Note: Because these are natural rubber mats, they are designed for unheated yoga
yoga and are not recommended for hot yoga or Bikram-style yoga.

The natural rubber also provides fabulous grip so if you’re prone to slipping and sliding on your mat, you may want to look into Tomuno.

I love the extra cushioning in these mats. Extra thick at 5mm, which my joints appreciate. I practice ashtanga yoga and more power-based and vigorous yoga and over time, a little extra cushioning goes a long way to help stay injury-free.

More about my yoga practice, yoga journey, recommendations for yoga classes, apparel and clothing, mats, books, DVDs, podcasts and much more, please check out this very comprehensive post:

Yoga FAQ’s

Also, I have many more posts linked in my Yoga Section, covering everything from my 500 Hour Teacher Training to Moon Days to Yoga DVD & Clothing Review posts and more.

Nutshell: I got my yoga teacher training credential at the RYT-200 hour level in 2001, I’m not currently teaching. I have a current daily personal practice at home; I don’t follow DVDs or podcasts, but rather I do what comes to me and what my body asks for that day. I practice ashtanga or power-based yoga and practice for about 20 minutes per day. I normally practice on a Manduka mat and have had the same Manduka Black Mat Pro for nearly a decade and have hauled it around the world with me and it still looks brand new, tens of thousands of practice hours and sweat droplets later. I will be anxious to see how the Tomuno mat stands the test of time.

    Awesome! I have a regular ol’ Gaiam mat. :)

    My current yoga mat is a cheap-o one from Target… I’m tall, it’s short, my hands get sweaty, it gets slippery… needless to say having a proper mat would be awesome!

  5. Sophia — March 2, 2012 at 11:08 am (#

    I love yoga, i love hatha, and also ashtanga. I practice every other day for 30-45min in my living room, and it’s my alone time after i put my son (18mos) to sleep. I enjoy it because it not only keeps me fit, but it clears my mind and gives me peace from within, i always feel better afterward and it also keeps my skin clear and glowing! I have no idea what kind of mat i have i bought it at whole foods about 8 or 9 years ago when i first started lol..but i need a new one desperately!

  6. Kati — March 2, 2012 at 11:09 am (#

    I practice Iyengar yoga and I love it! The focus on proper alignment and long holds really has helped to keep me relaxed and injury free. I would love to win a new mat – the one I have is a cheapie that I got at TJ Maxx like 10 years ago!

  7. Sassy — March 2, 2012 at 11:11 am (#

    I do videos from youtube for yoga at home & I use my carpet, but I’d love to have a yoga mat!

    My current yoga mat is a pink/ white flower Gaiam mat. It is pretty old and I think its time to retire it so I would love to win this one :)

  9. Emily — March 2, 2012 at 11:13 am (#

    I have a basic pink yoga mat I bought on clearance at TJ Maxx!

  10. Renee — March 2, 2012 at 11:14 am (#

    The yoga mat I have now is not a yoga mat at all. It is like a cushion-y piece of foam that rolls up (sorry, I don’t know the brand). Maybe it is a basic exercise mat, because it does not have the sticky surface and it totally absorbs sweat (gross!).
    This giveaway is awesome :)

  11. Mellissa — March 2, 2012 at 11:17 am (#

    I need a new mat so bad, I have a cheap one from TJMaxx that is just not cutting it anymore.

  12. Mandy — March 2, 2012 at 11:17 am (#

    Oh, I’m in the market for a new mat! I have a Tapas sticky mat that is beginning to show its age (nine years!). I’ve done all sorts of yoga, but was introduced first to Ashtanga back in 2003 and it’s my prefered style. I meditate and do yoga as often as I can. Thanks for the chance to win a mat with a green agenda! Great blog and I can’t wait to try your delicious recipes! Namaste!

  13. sara l — March 2, 2012 at 11:20 am (#

    I’ve been practicing on and off for about 10 years with a preference for a home based practice. I’ve been wanting to get “on the mat” with more frequency. This would help a lot!

  14. Kalyn — March 2, 2012 at 11:21 am (#

    My current yoga mat is some cheap one that a friend gave me. She got it for free and wasn’t going to use it. I would love to have a new one!

  15. Alex@Spoonful of Sugar Free — March 2, 2012 at 11:23 am (#

    Ohmygosh…i need this. Why? Because of my answer to the first question: I don’t own a yoga mat. I usually just do it all on a towel. Need.

    I have the most simple and cheao yoga mat that I got on sale at Century 21! This one looks amazing, I would really like to have it!

  21. Jacqueline@digintobooks — March 2, 2012 at 11:32 am (#

    I actually don’t have a yoga mat now so I just borrow the ones at the gym!

  22. Meghan — March 2, 2012 at 11:32 am (#

    I have a plain old super cheap mat from some superstore. I started because I’m an actor, and it was part of my training; I have continued because, as a person with fibromyalgia, it helps ease my symptoms instead of put me at risk for joint injuries.

    I have a cheap Reebok yoga mat that I got at Target over 10 years ago. Probably time for an upgrade!

    I have a blue Gaiman. Did I spell that right?

  28. Sarah C — March 2, 2012 at 11:44 am (#

    I had a green mat from Target, but just as I was starting to get into yoga, hubby borrowed it and left it at the YMCA – never saw it again. So, currently, I am mat-less.

  29. Kim — March 2, 2012 at 11:46 am (#

    My yoga mat doesn’t even have a brand name. It’s a cheapy from Ross.

  30. Sarah — March 2, 2012 at 11:47 am (#

    I had a pink gaiam cheap one that said “THE FIRM” on it which was pretty embarrassing. I just replaced it with a manduka prolite in olive green – it’s pretty cool.

    I have a mat of unknown origin and style that I got from a second hand store. It gets the job done, but I’d sure love a new one!

  35. Gurpreet — March 2, 2012 at 11:59 am (#

    I have a very simple plain mat as i had no money when i bought it.. I practice yoga atleast 4x a week for 1.5 hours each session… I will be very very happy to receive this mat.. my old mat is almost dying :(

    Right now I have a Lululemon mat I won after completing my yoga studio’s 30-day challenge…it’s good but I am always looking for new mats! Thanks for this and I hope I win!!

    while I do not practice formal Yoga, I do take the occasional class when I can and I enjoy doing my own stretching and meditation. starting Yoga for real is certainly on my to do list!

    I have a Manduka mat that I got on clearance at Dick’s Sporting Goods – I think it was on clearance because the color was discontinued.

    I have been doing yoga since October of 2010 and I am learning learning learning!

  41. Kathy in Michigan — March 2, 2012 at 12:13 pm (#

    I just have a cheapie from Target. I had a brain tumor removed and I’m trying to learn yoga to help retrain my brain for balance. I like the idea of a class rather than doing it at home but I’m taking yoga at a community center and I’m not real comfortable with the teacher. Trying not to give up!!! : )

    I was using a club mat, and my yoga instructor took pity on me and gave me one of her old ones. It is kind of short and thin, but I appreciated the gesture and have been using it for about 3 years. A new mat would be great.

  44. Christina Allyn — March 2, 2012 at 12:34 pm (#

    I have a mat so old the brand sticker has come off! I have been practicing Hatha/Vinayasa/Power yoga for 7 years!

    I currently have a junky mat found on sale at Target – I actually find pleasure in forgetting my mat and having to rent one at my yoga studio!! I practice vinyasa yoga as a way to counteract some of the pounding my body takes while jogging – is a great way to keep the hip flexors moving and reducing injuries!!

    I recently got a Manduka mat. I like it but find I still keep slipping. Would love to try this one out!
