Basically Perfect Yoga Essentials Cork Yoga Mat and Cork Yoga Blocks Non-Toxic
YOUR YOGA IS TOXIC.
11 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD SWITCH TO NON-TOXIC CORK TODAY
Yoga's promise of well being and health is a draw to so many of us looking to be good to ourselves. But did you know your yoga mat may be toxic? Believe it or not, most conventional yoga mats are! The irony!

The solution? Switch to non-toxic cork! 

Every yogi knows having a firm grip on your mat is important in your yoga practice. No one wants to slip and slide in down dog. But unfortunately the materials that provide that grippiness come at a cost of toxicity to us and our environment. Most yogis are in pretty close contact with their mat, practically breathing it in, and this should concern us.

Conventional yoga mats use materials like PVC known to be toxic to our bodies, which research says can cause cancer and damage the liver, reproductive system, central nervous and respiratory systems through inhalation and skin contact. Many mats include toxic chemicals like phthalates, an endocrine disruptor, to make the mats pliable and grippy. The problem is, an endocrine disruptor may mimic the body’s hormones, disrupting our delicate hormonal balance, causing all kinds of reproductive issues. 

Conventional mats expose toxic chemicals, not only to those who purchase them, but to workers and the environment during the manufacturing process. They are not biodegradable nor recyclable, and will continue to harm the environment with its toxicity when disposed of. 

There have been mats made from non-toxic alternatives like jute, but these have had their own drawbacks in optimal function, like a rough texture or other functional issues that make them less than ideal. 

Tell all of your loved ones! Choosing cork for your yoga is without compromise as the benefits of cork go well beyond it being non-toxic. Who knew cork wasn’t just for wine bottles? Be safe, and enhance your yoga practice further. Learn about cork and our thoughtfully created Basically Perfect cork-based yoga essentials below!
1 ]  :  BASICALLY PERFECT YOGA CORK MAT.
Basically Perfect Cork Yoga Mat Non Toxic
Non-Toxic
The Basically Perfect Cork Yoga Mat is made from all natural, sustainably-sourced cork and natural high density rubber. You can feel good knowing that the mat you are in contact with and breathing in is non-toxic, free of phthalates, PVC, TPE, foam and other harsh chemicals. 

Eco-friendly
Cork and rubber are both harvested without cutting down any trees. Only the bark of a cork tree is stripped to harvest cork and rubber is tree sap. 

Non-slip, grounding cork surface offers the strongest grip, wet or dry. 
Basically Perfect Cork Yoga Mats are non-slip, and will actually become grippier with heat and sweat. The texture and the earthy grounding feel you get from the combination of the cork surface and the high density rubber bottom is like no other, a feeling you will actually crave. 

No yoga towel needed!
There is no need for a bunched, yoga towel above your mat, even during the sweatiest of practice. Chances are, if you practice hot yoga or any kind of yoga in which you sweat, you’ve had to deal with these distractions on your mat. Immediately enhance your practice with a more confident grip.

Self-sanitizing
To top it off, this cork yoga mat is self-sanitizing! Cork is a naturally antimicrobial material and odor free. The cork surface stays fresh, free of germs and bacteria, so sweat away! 

Durable. Will never chip.
Premium cork is durably fused together with the natural rubber bottom through a special high temperature bonding process without the use of adhesives or harsh chemicals to create our mats. Unlike others on the market, our process ensures the cork will never chip or crumble even with heavy use, so no worries there. 

Simply elegant
The natural, modern minimalist look of cork spells simple elegance. Goes with any decor in your home, blends in beautifully against the wood floors at your studio, adding to the serenity of your practice. Did we mention there are no logos or superfluous designs on the surface of the mat? No distractions. Just a pure, Basically Perfect Yoga Mat that checks off all of the boxes.

So yeah, this is a Basically Perfect Yoga Mat.

Huge fan. I got this because my hands are always slipping and this mat is awesome for that! Also super ways to clean dust and dirt off and already smells better than other mats. Big fan - highly recommend

In love with this beautiful mat + company!

Biodegradable?! No harmful chemicals?! Oh my goodness! I've been searching for a new quality, eco friendly yoga mat for a while now and I am so thankful I came across BasicallyPerfect. I ordered through the BP website, and was able to get the tracking information. Did have a complication with the delivery through the carrier.. but Mika was extremely understanding and kind. She was honest, communicative, and took action immediately.
The beauty of this yoga mat is like no other, absolutely love the simplicity. As soon as I felt it, I knew I could trust the quality.
If you are looking for a perfect yoga mat, this is it! It's seriously the best yoga mat I have ever practiced on and I actually plan on getting more to be able to have them at all my upcoming retreats.
THANK YOU SO MUCH, Basically Perfect. I am beyond happy with my purchase! :)

perfect

Do not typically leave reviews, but felt compelled to with this mat. I've owned many yoga mats throughout the years and this one trumps them all. I practice mysore 6 times a week, there is absolutely no slipperyness what-so-ever, regardless of how sweaty. The earthy smell from the cork is a welcome addition to my practice. I've recommended this mat to many friends and will never go back to a rubber mat again. Looks, smells, and feels great. If you are comparing several mats, do yourself a favor and purchase this one, guaranteed improved practice. Could not be more pleased, perfect.

Better than a Manduka

I've used a Manduka Pro for years - It's pretty much the gold standard when it comes to premium mats, but I sweat, and despite the breaking in with salt I've done to "season" it, it's never given me the grip I feel good about when I'm sweating. This "Basically Perfect" mat does it all. The grip is really good even as you sweat and it's been a game changer not needing a yoga towel on the mat. I also tried bending the mat to see if the cork may come out eventually - that was my only hesitation before purchasing this mat, but you'll see that even if you tried, the cork will just bounce right back into shape so no worries there. I'll bet you you'll start seeing a lot more of these cork yoga mats in your yoga classes. It's really much better than any mat I've tried. Big thumbs up!

Beautiful!

This mat looks beautiful in my living room where I have hard wood floors. I can leave it out and it doesn't bother me - sort of blends in with my floor and decor. Love my new mat! This is not a cheap flimsy mat.Very nicely made.

Glad I found this mat!

My search is over. This mat does everything it says it will. Have really been enjoying this mat and I keep telling people about the benefits of cork. I love how well it grips and how fresh and clean it feels against my skin. This mat has a very luxurious feel - it's not cheap compared to some of the flimsy cheap mats out there but it's worth the price. Happy!

Great Solid Block!

This is a great solid block with a nice earthy cork texture - very well made and high quality! Very happy with my purchase. Thank you!

Awesome traction - great mat!

I am a sweater and this mat really doesn't slide. Awesome traction and the rubber bottom grips to the floor as well with some heaviness to it. Highly recommend this mat.

Very happy! Love this mat!

Checks off all of the boxes! This is a great mat! Go cork!

Best Yoga Mat Ever!

Super happy with this purchase! This mat is super grippy and feels really grounding - I LOVE what it's done to my practice! You don't need a yoga towel. Plus it's really beautiful and I get many compliments at class with people asking me about it and I get to tell them about all of the benefits of cork. Non-toxic, eco etc.! Highly recommend it!
