Breaking Bad Habits On Your Yoga Mat

This month at Plank, we're all about Bad Habit Breaking, in life and in our Yoga Practice! 

By using a Plank Yoga Mat (PYM), we've been able to break the habit of collapsing into our joints, by focusing on creating firmer foundations through our hands and feet. However, when we use a grippy mat, we lose our foundations and sink into our joints because we are relying on the stickiness of the mat to root us down, not our own body strength. 

The PYM is a mat that asks the practioner to think before doing, not just simply to do. So next time you are on your mat, be conscious of whether or not your are sinking into your joints, or using the strength of your foundations and muscles to hold your poses. If the answer is "sinking"...then it just might be time for a new mat!

Check out this awesome photo of our Ambassador, Elizabeth Rowan, rocking her firm foundations in Handstand. ​
