Constructed from natural rubber on top for maximum cushion and stick, with an eco-fiber lining on the bottom for structure and durability, the Yoga for Men Legend mat is the best mat for men that we have ever used, bar none. And we’ve tested them all (well, most of them, anyway).
Not only have we tested this mat, but we’ve sent it to our pro athlete clients who punish the Legend in ways most of us can only imagine. We’ve stuck them under the feet of teachers who are on them day after day, class after class. All of this has led us to say, with great confidence, that this is the best yoga mat you will ever use.
The health benefits of Yoga in general are extremely well documented, but a recent study by researchers from the University of Maryland School of Nursing and the National Institutes of Health took a unique look at the relationship between various aspects of yoga practice and specific predictors of health.
This study, published in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, separated yoga practice into different components and then correlated them to several known factors associated with good health. The study implies some interesting possibilities, and we'll take a look at them over a few different articles.
