    These mini mats would allow me to focus more on my practice and breath… I wouldn’t have to worry about slipping all over the place and I can just enjoy the movement of yoga:) (Size #2)

    I just LOVE these! What a brilliant concept. I am dying to try them out – perfect for when I find myself in less than ideal circumstances traveling and visiting friends etc. These would make sure nothing gets in the way of me and my daily dose of yoga no matter where I am! 🙂

    Wonderful as I do a lot of travelling and can never take my mat, also tend to slip, especially in downward dog – what a great invention..

    They inspire me to connect better to the ground and, in feeling safely held I float up with buoyancy and lift! 🙂

    As I travel Long distances to Europe, to be with my Husband in Italy, it is incredibly difficult for me to keep up my practice. I often have very long lay overs at Airports and like to do some really good stretches while I wait… these will really help me alot! (Size 1)

    wow, the concept behind it, is brilliant, light weight , easy to pack and the effective method of not slipping & sliding all over the place and best of all it stops sweaty palms… I would simply love having that to make YOGA much more enjoyable & comfortable for me…(size # 2 – hand & feet )

    I do hot yoga and sweaty palms are sometimes really uncomfortable. These mini mats would be great for extra grip during hot yoga classes! Besides they would fit perfectly in my purse, pocket, or travel bag!!! It would be so great to not lug that mat around with me all the time 🙂 (size 2).

      P.S One of my other reasons would be that it’s my birthday on the 29. August and it would be the perfect gift! 🙂

    I’m a teacher and I can only fit 10 or 12 max people in my dinky little studio, and often need to demonstrate asanas away from my mat – these gorgeous paws would really help me to be able to do so without slipping about or running back to my mat the whole time, and more than that could actually mean I could do away with my mat altogether and fit an extra bod in the class! Size 2.
