yoga gear recommendations:

Because it's a part of how we practice and it's helpful to have what you need available to you as a practitioner, we are a wholesaler of B Mats. And we don't really get into the business of endorsing products or selling stuff. 

If you'd like to purchase one, we'll ship it to you, but we'd rather you come in for a class, practice the kind of yoga that good mats are made for and take one for a test practice. Give Lyndsay a call for more info: 919-704-5365
