As the end of the year is coming closer and closer I am getting ready for my New Years resolutions! Christmas is pretty much around the corner already and NYE is not far behind. So I thought it was time to get ready for 2016!
After failing Insanity, 2 times, not completing the Gluteal Goddess schedule from Bret Contreras and than not finishing the Bikini Body Guide, I decided to go for a different approach next year. I am going to do sports and activities that I actually like! Maybe combine different schedules or make my own. But one of the activities I definitely want to do more of is Yoga! When I did a 30-days of Yoga schedule with youtube videos from Yoga with Adriene I was happy! I liked doing Yoga and it made me feel better about myself, I noticed differences in my posture and my flexibility. And so therefore I want to continue this and get better in it! See what yoga can do for me my fitness, my mental health and my lifestyle.
Well one thing I need for this New Years resolution to work is a good yogamat! And so I stumbled upon Yogagoods.nl*, the only website selling Manduka* items in the Netherlands…

On the website I could find a lot of amazing yogagoodies and while I was actually looking for a yogamat I also found the perfect mat carrier!
This Manduka Go Steady 2.0 can store almost every yogamat and besides this also features a huge compartment for yoga clothes and little compartments for items like your watch, wallet, phone etc. As I tend to take with me a lot of items I am happy that with this bag I can organize my items well. I’ll probably won’t lose my items in this bag!
Besides the mat carrier I also found the perfect yogamat on the Yogagoods website! They have a lot of different Manduka mats but I decided to go for the classic Manduka black mat PRO as I have read a lot of good things about this mat. They actually call it the ‘Taj Mahal’ of yogamats! Well with a lifetime guarantee I can’t imagine this mat will be a dissapointment.
The black mat PRO is pretty heavy and with 6mm of cushioning it is pretty thick as well. Besides this the mat is 180cm (71″) long and 66cm (26″) which is longer and wider than most yogamats. Perfect to end my practice with a long and comfy Shavasana!
One thing I think is important to mention about Manduka is that this brand puts the Earth first in there business. Manduka is an ecological brand and in the production of making new items they make sure no toxic emissions get released during this process. With the lifelong guarantee of the black mat PRO and with high durability of all there items Manduka wants to reduce landfill waste.
I really love this mindfullness in a business and I think Manduka is doing great with the steps they are thinking. Another reason why I already love my new yogamat! Of course I started breaking in my mat already and I am super happy. The mat is really comfy, does not move during my practice, and although I have read that this mat can be slippy in the beginning I have not really noticed this yet!
