- SEASONING YOUR NEW MAT
- When you first get your Kurma mat do not use straight away, a light film from manufacturing must be rinsed off. Not washing your mat before use will lead to a slippery initial usage.
In order for your mat to reach its optimal grip, salting it is very important. To salt your mat, you will need: Water & Salt
How to season/ break in your mat:
o Wet your mat with water and throw a few cups of salt on your mat (any type of salt will do).
o Scrub the salt and water all over the mat with a heavy duty scrub sponge
o Let the salt water completely dry onto the mat, then scrub it a little more.
o After the salting, rinse the mat clean. To rinse the mat, use a mild detergent or just water. If you use soap of any kind be sure that all soap is washed off really well before using the mat.
Your mat should be grippy and ready for a lifetime of use.
Keep in Mind
Like a good pair of shoes, your yoga mat will take a little time before it has reached its optimum and lifetime potential for an amazing grip!
The best way to break in your mat is to do lots of yoga practice :)
The more you use your mat, the better the grip becomes. Your salty sweat helps it too!
It's nice to use a yoga towel for the first few uses if you find it still slipping after the salt wash.
- TIPS FOR CARE & STORAGE
- o Wiping your mat down with a cleaning cloth is all that is required for ongoing cleaning
o Do not put your yoga mat in a washing machine or dish washer
o Avoid storing away your mat if it is wet
o Your mat is best stored roll-up, rather than folded
