I got an email the other day for a product called the YoFoMat. And I have to say I am rather intrigued!! I am tempted to order one of these origami, travel anywhere, eco mats. It folds away to the size of a book (or ipad box apparently) so you can carry it in your purse or bag.
Does anyone have one of these things? It’s being sold by a company called Khataland. I can’t tell if it is clever and functional or if it is a home shopping network disaster. Needless to say, I must have one. It appeals to me because I cycle everywhere and find that it is too cumbersome to travel with my yoga mat and my usually crammed full Osprey flapjill messenger bag. But then again I just can’t tell if it is a good mat with all gimmicks aside.
Moving on into the realm of the techy. A rather interesting iPhone/iPad app was brought to my attention. Michael Gannon, the self branded ‘Yoga Dealer’ has come out with the first ever Ashtanga app. Now this I have tried and tested, and I do approve! There are beginner and advanced options with useful pictures, info, and direction.
Lastly, I am a sucker for anything made by Yogitoes. I am obsessed with the uStrap. It looks like they are coming out with a new Skidless towel. The brand is called Prism with Brock Cahill as the poster yogi. It is made from recycled polyester and represents the glow of the chakras! I think it looks great. And I love the Walle esque ad campaign.
