What better way to inspire yourself to keep going during a particularly testing yoga session than looking down during a pose and seeing a positive message?
That’s exactly what Affirmats founder Jason Graham thought the day he decided to create the brand.
The floor pieces come in a range of bright colours, that a bound to boost your mood and best of all they feature messages that will remind you of how create life is when you’re working out.
Hand-embroidered affirmations such as ‘I am free’ or ‘I am healthy, I am wealthy, I am love’ are sewed into the biodegradable mats which are 5mm thick and ECO-PVC/jute.
As of this summer, they even come in XL size (Dhs315.88) for those blessed with extra height and the great thing is the messages will never rub off like it would on a mat with printed words.
Affirmats – which recently landed in Dubai from their birth place of Los Angeles - are slip resistant and ergonomically friendly. They were the first yoga mat line to be launch in Urban Outfitters stores and in Dubai you can grab one at Kata & Asana (G5 Al Barsha Mall, Al Barsha 2, 04 354 9091) and Astanga Yoga Dubai (Habtoor Grand Hotel, JBR) in marigold, purple, turquoise, or slate blue.
The Classic size is Dhs275, while custom made you can get one line for Dhs404, two lines for Dhs433 or three lines for Dhs455.
From on the beach to in the park, we won't be surprised if soon you're seeing these unique mats all over the emirate.
