The “Lady Blue Cork Yoga Mat” boasts an exceptional grip, comfort and stability through a mix of softness and combined cork/natural rubber density which allows for perfect weight distribution.

This Surfasana Yoga Mat is made of thick organic cork, supported by a natural rubber layer. A 4mm-thick and 100% sustainable cork mat, beautifully designed, offering wavy back and blue dreamy tones. 

The “Lady Blue Cork Yoga Mat” is directly inspired by one of the most popular squash tail high-performance shortboard shapes (here a 5’6” x 18” board) seen here through the dreamy Asian lens of our favorite artist designer, Pauline.

Optimal grip performance

The natural organic cork we use in our mats provides for an optimal grip and offers a pleasant soft natural touch under your palms and feet.  

While rubber-tops and chemical alternatives become more slippery as sweating increases, Surfasana™ natural cork-based yoga mats not only do not absorb water, but the grip actually increases the more we sweat and as the mats become wetter.

Low Maintenance & High Durability

Impermeability: thanks to their natural anti-bacterial cork top and natural rubber bottom Surfasana™ Mats show an exceptional impermeability. Water, sweat and other liquid do not penetrate the cells of the mat and stay on the surface. This makes the cleaning of the mat very easy as only a gentle brushing with a wet towel is required to clean up after most practices.

100% Sustainable & Renewable

Cork is harvested by hand from cork-oak bark and is a fully natural and sustainable material. It takes about 12 years for the first harvest to occur and can then be harvested every 9 years, without causing any harm to the tree. Considering that each cork oak tree has an average life span of 200 years it is a highly natural renewable resource.

Natural rubber is produced by tapping rubber trees for latex, yielding up to 19 pounds of natural latex per tree, every year. It is a natural process that starts when the tree is 5 to 6 years old and can last up to 28 years thereafter. Every 30 years or so, the tree dies and is replaced by another 10. Each tree yields 2.1 cubic meters of wood as biomass and produces easily biodegradable litter.

Antimicrobial & Antibacterial

Cork is naturally hypo-allergenic, anti-microbial and anti-fungal. Indeed scientific studies show that cork offers high antibacterial activity against many bacteria and fungus, sometimes up to 100% efficient in bacterial reduction. 

Thanks to its antibacterial and anti-microbial properties, natural cork provides a safe, comfortable and natural surface for our practice. It also eliminates the need for chemical disinfectants, PVC or other potentially harmful material.

Eco-friendly

By using only natural organic cork and natural rubber produced by trees, we naturally contribute to fighting climate change as both cork oak trees and rubber trees absorb millions of tons of Co2 from the atmosphere every year.

It is estimated that every year cork oak forests retain up to 14 million tons of CO2, contributing to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, one of the main causes of climate change.
