Yoga dates back well over 2,000 years, but the first yoga-specific mat was only introduced in the late 1980s, when Utah-based Hugger Mugger made a lightweight, durable, sticky yoga mat that could handle any asana. In the nearly 35 years since, Hugger Mugger has continually improved its technology, while adding a sustainable element; its latest mats are environmentally friendly, biodegradable, recyclable and non-toxic TPE.

Now is as good a time as any, perhaps even better, to pick up a home yoga practice. A couple weeks ago we recommended YouTube yogi Adriene Mishler (of “Yoga With Adriene” fame) who offers high-quality yoga instruction, completely free, for getting your routine going. You’ll enjoy her class a whole lot more if your Warrior II isn’t slipping all over the rug in your living room. Thankfully, Hugger Mugger’s Earth Elements Eco Yoga Mat is currently 25% off at Backcountry. Namaste.
