Aurorae Yoga {Review & Giveaway} Yoga Mat and Slip Free Accessories

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

If I told you that there is an exercise that has been practiced for more than 5,000 years and includes benefits such as flexibility, strength, posture, breathing, concentration, less stress and more... would you know what I was referring to? Of course you would, it's the world-renowned way to build your body as well as develop inner peace for your mind: yoga.

Even better, yoga is a completely customizable experience every time you roll out your mat. The only way to be certain of all that it can do for you is to try yoga for yourself and see. There are no special skills or talents required, you just need to be prepared with the right equipment - first and foremost a thick and durable mat from Aurorae Yoga.

Like I said, no special skills required!

Available in six soothing colors that help define your inner self (e.g. Ocean for caring, cooling and trustworthy or Infinity for strength, sophistication and professionalism), Aurorae Yoga Mats contain all of the features that make for a high quality yoga experience.

The extra-long 72" length means that I can lay completely stretched out and not touch the floor and the ultra-thick 1/4" mat is softer and absorbs more impact than any that I have ever felt before. Instead of a thin piece of flimsy rubber, Aurorae Yoga Mats are amazingly padded and, although a strange analogy, almost make me feel like I am resting on a memory foam mattress topper rather than a yoga mat.

While enjoying the luxuriousness of using a yoga mat that cushions your entire body, Aurorae Yoga has also come up with solutions to the common complaint of slipping while doing yoga. It is difficult to hold positions with sweat dripping down onto the mat, causing your hands or feet to slide out of place, right? Now you'll never have to move around again, thanks to their innovative Slip Free Rosin Bag and Yoga Sport Sweat Towel.


The perfect size to fit in your hand, the Aurorae Yoga Rosin Bag increases gripping power and absorbs perspiration simply by touching it. I wondered if it would leave a powder or chalky feeling to my hands and feet, but in fact, it didn't. After barely holding it in my hand, I rubbed my fingers together and found that my hand felt drier (but not dried out) but still perfectly clean - no odor or sticky residue remained.

As it comes in its own zip-close plastic bag, this Rosin Bag is easily transported in your gym bag or kept with your workout equipment at home to be brought out when it is time to do yoga. Apply a small amount before beginning and then keep the bag nearby for an extra dab when needed.

For a little extra sweat removal, Aurorae Yoga's latest product is their Yoga Sport Sweat Towel, a 16" x 23" towel that fits right in to your yoga experience. Made out of 100% natural cotton soft terry, this is just the thing to pull out and use in conjunction with the Slip Free Rosin Bag to keep your yoga practice at its finest. Rubbing this towel on my forehead felt soft and refreshing!

As well as offering only the highest quality products, Aurorae Yoga truly cares about your shopping experience. On the constant lookout for simple and cost-effective ways to help you improve and enjoy your practice, they strive to make sure you are completely satisfied with every purchase. If you ever have any comments or concerns, contact Aurorae Yoga and you will always be treated like a friend and not just a customer. I think that's something we can all appreciate.


Whether yoga is a huge part of your life, you are just getting started or you need a unique and appreciated Mother's Day gift, Aurorae Yoga is a great place to look. All of their products have rave reviews on Amazon (they are the #1 yoga mat!) and you or the lucky recipient will definitely not be disappointed. Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will get to try out all three of Aurorae Yoga's great items, because...

One lucky person will win an Aurorae Yoga Mat, Yoga Sport Sweat Towel and Slip Free Rosin Bag! ARV $43!
