Q: How do I care for the Natree Rubber yoga mat?
A: Because our mat is made from natural tree rubber, proper care is essential to keep the surface from degrading. We recommend cleaning your mat with a 50/50 mixture of water and organic apple cider vinegar. Please do not place in the washer/dryer or leave in the sun. Because the mat is open cell, all natural, it will degrade over time so do not use oils or chemicals on this mat.
Q: Does the Natree yoga mat come with a warranty?
A: Absolutely. Clever Yoga has a special “Namaste” Lifetime Guarantee. If you are not 100% satisfied with your mat, we will replace it free of charge, or give you your money back, no questions asked.
Q: Is the mat environmentally safe?
A: Yes! The Natree yoga mat is made out of eco-friendly natural tree rubber, free of harmful plasticizers, no PVC or latex. It is 100% recyclable and contains no ozone depleting ingredients.
Q: My hands and feet often slip during hot, sweaty yoga practices. Will this mat keep me from slipping?
A: Absolutely! The shiny, smooth surface of the Natree yoga mat has optimum grip, and is totally slip resistant. You can sweat on the mat, move through vinyasas and arm balances swiftly without any worry of slipping. The other surface of the mat can also be used, for more hatha like and restorative practices. So, the life of the mat can be extended by using both sides.
Q: Can I use the mat for anything besides yoga practices?
A: Absolutely! Lots of folks use the mat for pilates practice as well as for working out and stretching. The mat has superior cushioning and support as well, so your knees and elbows won’t hurt while using your mat.
Q: My new mat smells like rubber. Will the smell go away?
A: The smell will definitely fade over time. Because the mat is made from natural tree rubber, there will be a slight rubber scent. After use and cleaning, leave your mat unrolled to air dry, in the shade. Lots of people report not minding the smell, because they know the mat is eco-friendly, with no toxic materials.
Q: I notice after I use the mat, there are foot print “smudges”.
A: It is very common to see light smudges after use. Just use very mild, diluted apple cider vinegar and water to clean and lightly pat dry. You can even air dry, but not in direct sunlight. You may also notice wear patterns at the top and bottom of the mat where your hands and feet are most often placed. This is totally normal due to the open cell, all natural material.
