Wild Coast Yoga was dreamed up in Raglan by two friends, passionate about yoga and who share the love of the ocean. From its ever changing colours, wildness and freedom to it’s healing, restorative properties. We wanted to create deluxe yet environmentally friendly mats where yogi’s could get swept away from their daily lives and embrace everything the ocean has to offer during their practice.
Beautiful yoga mats inspired by the wild west coast beaches of Raglan, the place we call home. With world famous surf spots and black sand beaches Raglan is truly unique. Each mat features one of a kind aerial photography of famous surf spots in NZ or beyond printed onto luxury yoga mats.
Our mats are 3mm thick and made from environmentally friendly tree rubber base which is biodegradable and recyclable, a microfibre top which is made from recycled plastic bottles and with water based ink. Our mats use the highest standard of new technology available in the making.
Our mats have an absorbent top layer of micro fibre towel bonded to the natural tree rubber that gives you sweat grip of a towel and the cushion of a yoga mat. Our mat grips better the more you sweat. You can also lightly spritz your mat with water to increase grip.
Great for both regular and hot yoga and have a carry/stretch strap included.
Why tree rubber?
For a start our eco friendly tree rubber is biodegradable and recyclable. It is not only an environmentally friendly, renewable resource, but it also has a greater resistance to tearing when hot, better dynamic performance and won’t retain moisture like other synthetic rubbers.
Our mats are free from silicone, toxic glue phthalates, PVC and chlorine.
If you notice that your yoga mat is a little more slippery than what you are used to please give it a few practises to break in. This is due the complex printing onto the microfibre surface. We recommend lightly spraying the mat with water or simply dampening hands and feet at the beginning of your practice, especially if you have naturally dry hands and feet
