Looking for a perfect yoga mat for your practice? You can happily skip the troublesome hunt and turn to Chennai-based brand Juru. Take your yoga practice up a notch with Juru’s biodegradable yoga mats, props and accessories. From yoga mat-overs (a cover for your much-used mat) and mats to essential props and accessories, they’ll have you covered. Started by yoga teachers, Puja Borker and Toral Walsh, the brand’s name is a portmanteau of jute and rubber, which were the only materials used initially.
Apart from this, their range of eco-friendly and biodegradable yoga products (first in India, apparently) are also made using combinations of natural rubber and cork, and natural rubber and cotton. It is ideal for yoga enthusiasts who want to go organic with some style and comfort. Pick from light-weight and attractive mats or simple cork mats, which give you an enhanced grip while you practice. You could even go for one of their foldable and reversible mat-overs that can be put over your old mat.
What’s more, you won’t have to constantly worry about it peeling and flaking. Also on offer are props and accessories such as yoga belts (in different colours), cork blocks, yoga headstand pillows, bolsters, knee cushions, blankets and handy bags for your mat.
