These mats are the sort of thing you talk about and never get. Well, not me!!
I needed to find somewhere to put my pretzel-shaped body while doing my yoga moves.
I had limited space and very small budget - the average mat seemed to retail for about $30-80!! It seemed a little out of my range. All those super-slick Yoga and Pilates specialty stores seemed to mark them up just a little too much.
Then I stumbled on a blue one almost identical to the one in the picture. It was at a daggy hardware store at a ratty shopping complex in deepest darkest Rowville (shudder!).
The price tag read $4.
I was aghast. And delighted.
I thought "Wow! This is great. I can buy this here and pretend I got it from a snazzy Yoga store and no-one will ever know....er"
Like it matters.
Anyone thinking of buying one, try the rubber stores and the hardware stores first.
