Why Use a Yoga Mat?

agoy has brought the yoga mat up to date with a range of yoga mats in vibrant colours and styles. These yoga mats are designed and tested by experts for optimum comfort, style and durability – unlike cheaper yoga mats, these mats will withstand the demands of a regular practice – the agoy yoga mats last.

The agoy Studio Classic and Deluxe yoga mats are ideal for creating a firm, even and non-slip surface on carpets and hard, cold floors. The agoy cotton yoga mat is ideal for hot and sweaty yoga and should be used over a regular yoga mat.

The Story of agoy Yoga Strap

"I knew we had the potential to produce a great yoga strap once we were able to make it out of something as cool as recycled plastic bottles. It wasn't easy to get the recycled yarn to feel as soft as we wanted, but once we got the right feel it made sense to add two natural rubber strips along the length of the strap to give it additional grip. This was never a simple yoga strap for me - you see, as a yoga teacher I always keep at least 2 or 3 straps in my bag, and I really felt that this strap had to be something very special."
