My name is Xak, and I’m an avid yoga enthusiast and young entrepreneur. I started doing yoga when I was in my senior year of college around 2015, although it wasn’t until near the end of 2017 that I started making yoga a regular practice. Since, I have dedicated anywhere from 7-45 minutes per day, making Yoga a daily routine. It’s now more than simply a hobby, it is a focal part of my life!
It didn’t take long to recognize the benefits yoga has had on both my body and mind. I am not only more limber, have better physical balance, and am more awake throughout the day, but I’ve also noticed my mind beginning to become more mindful and aware.
Yoga has really changed my life, and if you’re just starting out, I hope it will change yours too!
I Couldn’t Touch My Toes…
Something that I had always been hesitant about before I decided to give yoga a shot was my flexibility. I have never really been that flexible (and I still am not the most flexible person you’ll ever meet). I thought you needed to have flexibility to be good at, or even to attempt, the art of yoga.
Yoga is all about postures (asanas), building strength, and flexibility, right?
This is what I, like many other people, I’m sure, believed yoga was about before I even gave it a shot. I had done one of the biggest mistakes you can do, I made an assumption. I had put yoga in a box before getting to know what it truly is about.
Yoga is a journey. Yes, you’ll gain flexibility and physical balance when you continually practice yoga, but you’ll gain so much more than that. You’ll also learn more about yourself than what you thought you knew, find mental balance to juggle all the things that life has in store for you, and feel the energy of the world in motion. I know that I did!
Where You’re at in Your Journey
Whether you’re just starting out in yoga, or you’re a seasoned veteran far beyond my skill-set, I am here to help you find the perfect yoga mat with your needs! Having a mat that you connect with is super important, even if you might not realize it.
Having a mat you love and trust will make you want to get on your mat more. If you’re stuck without a mat or with a mat that isn’t comfortable, is too small, is too big, is a color you don’t like, or reason xyz as to why it’s not right for you, then you’ve come to the right place.
Finding Your Perfect Yoga Mat
My end goal is to help you find the perfect yoga mat for your needs. While this site mainly focuses on larger yoga mats, never fear! If you decide that a smaller yoga mat is more up your alley, click here to see what I have to say about those options!
As always, if you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below, and I’ll do what I can to help! Along with yoga, helping others is a huge passion of mine 🙂
