About your Mat
1. How do I clean my Kosha Yoga Co. Mat?
Though your Kosha Yoga Co. Mat is washing-machine friendly (see instructions below), we recommend gently hand-washing your mat with a mild detergent and washcloth then simply hang to dry. This tender love and care will lengthen the longevity of your mat and save water. However, if you decide to machine-wash it, follow the instructions below:
Wash on a gentle cycle with cold water
Use a mild detergent. Do not use bleach/softener/strong chemical solution
Find a machine without an agitator because it can damage your mat
Do not put your mat in the dryer, simply air out to dry
2. How often should I clean my Kosha Yoga Co. Mat?
This depends on several factors: the type of yoga you practice, how often you practice, how much you sweat and where you practice (indoor or outdoor). Taking all these factors into consideration you may wash your mat after every 5 - 8 uses. If you choose not to wash your mat, you may hang it out to dry so that it's always looking and smelling fresh.
3. What are Kosha Yoga Co. Mats made of?
Our mats are made of 2 materials: a 100% natural tree rubber base and microfibre suede-like top layer. The base of the mat is made of natural rubber to ensure great grip, stability and cushioning for your joints. The top surface is made of a sweat absorbent microfibre material which looks and feels like a soft towel. The top surface is printed with your favourite design through a process called thermal-dye sublimation, which brings out the vibrant colours of the design and does not fade away easily.
4. How much do Kosha Yoga Co. Mats weigh?
Kosha Yoga Co. Mats weigh 5 pounds and are slightly heavier than the general-purpose mats that are available locally. Our mats are friends of the environment and are made of 100% natural rubber, which ensures that your mats, once laid out, do not slip. The natural properties of rubber as a material lend unmatched grip and stability and also add some weight to the mat. Additionally, our mats are longer and wider (72" x 24") than most mats available in the market. This extra room on your mat also adds a little weight. Though the complimentary carrying strap you get with your mat will lighten the load conveniently!
5. Can I use my Kosha Yoga Co. Mat for hot yoga?
Yes, you can use your mat for hot yoga. The microfibre top surface of your mat is highly sweat absorbent and has been designed for sweaty practice. In fact, the traction and grip of your mat increases with sweat ensuring your mat works just as hard as you do!
6. In addition to yoga, what are the other ways I can use my Kosha Yoga Co. Mat?
In addition to all forms of yoga, you can use your mat at the beach, gym, picnic or even as a gorgeous rug in your living room!
7. Are your mats covered by a warranty?
All our products are covered under a 12month warranty against manufacturing defects. In the rare case that you find your Kosha Yoga Co. product to be defective, please write to us at email@example.com with details about the order. Please note that the warranty is valid for manufacturing defects only and does not cover damage to the products caused by misuse or regular wear and tear.
8. Do I need to break-in my new Kosha Yoga Co. Mat?
Just like your favourite pair of jeans, your mat requires a break-in period. Your mat is manufactured with a thin, protective layer applied to its surface to keep it safe during transportation. The true grip of your mat emerges once this layer wears off. The best way to do this is practice, practice, practice! The next best option is to sprinkle some water on the mat before practicing for the first 2-3 uses. But, if you want to speed things up a little, follow the simple steps mentioned here.
9. How do I use the carrying strap as a yoga prop?
Your carrying strap doubles up as a yoga strap which you can use to improve your practice. A yoga strap is a prop that can help you better your alignment, posture and flexibility. Follow our blog for posts on how to use a yoga strap.
10. What are Kosha Yoga Co. Blocks? How do I use them?
Yoga Blocks are useful yoga props meant for both beginner and advanced yoga practitioners. They can improve your practice by helping you better your alignment, posture and flexibility. Our yoga blocks help you stretch deeper, bend further and reach higher with each practice. Follow our blog for posts on how to use a yoga block.
