Being a full-time yoga teacher is incredibly rewarding – it’s also physically and mentally challenging and somedays exhausting. Self-care is something it’s taken me a while to be good at doing, but I have realized it’s so important for me to be a good teacher for the students that rely on me to be their teacher. I’ve been using my new Pranamat Eco the last few weeks to help provide me that self-care.
I won’t lie – at first I was both equal parts nervous and intrigued by this Pranamat with it’s beautiful, yet pointy little lotus flowers. I had seen several of my yoga friends online trying it out and began to wonder about it myself. So I do what all curious people do and decided I had to try it for myself!
The Pranamat Eco is made with hypoallergenic materials like natural linen & coconut fiber, real cotton, and the plastic used to make the lotus flowers is also certified for use in surgical equipment. Having a few friends with pretty severe chemical allergies has made me more aware of paying attention to the materials products are made of.
I chose an all Lavender mat, not only do I find the color beautiful but lavender soothes and stimulates and for me the color was important. I do love purple!
Lastly, let’s chat about price. The Pranamat Eco is pricey, but it is also guaranteed for 5 years, made of incredible high-quality materials in Europe, and costs about the same as 2 hour long massages. Plus you can use my code: CLARISSAMAE10 for 10% off the purchase of your own Pranamat Eco!
As a teacher who is charged with holding precious space for her students, it’s important that my body and mind are ready for whatever challenges and emotions are brought in tagging along with the students. For me making this change to teaching full-time has made it clear that I wasn’t doing enough to take care of me and as someone who promotes care of self I needed to be more intentional about my own care time.
And whether you are a teacher of yoga, children, an employee at a company, a barista, a police officer, or anyone who serves others in anyway this beautiful little tool is something that will help you remember to take care of you too! I highly recommend this Pranamat Eco and I think you will really start to see some incredible benefits!
