I've been practicing yoga for 5 years now and gone through the spectrum of mats as I've progressed in my practice - I think I've reached my peak mat. Doesn't smell, doesn't lift up or move from the floor, super soft, great grip even when I'm sweaty and the perfect amount of cushion for knees.
Also the gold alignment is 🤌 If you're on the fence this review is the sign that you should click buy. Invest in yourself and your health.
This is great May, I’m returning to yoga after a long break and this mat is guiding and non-slip as well cushioned. Massive must that it’s eco-friendly. If you buy it you won’t be disappointed ⭐️
I love the ethics of the company and their commitment to planting trees .
I love the gold print in the neutral cork background !
The grip is good and I look forward to teaching on my mat 🧘♀️
Well worth the cost as this is great
It’s a lovely mat , but way too small , designed for hobbits .
I’m a very average sized man
And I don’t fit on my mat .
I treated myself to this mat for my yoga practice as I wanted a more natural environmentally friendly mat and it is just what I wanted and I purchased when there was 15% off. I was impressed with all its eco friendly qualities including being biodegradable and that a new tree is planted for every one sold. I have found it to be strong, nonslip and feels comfortable. I also like the markings which help me to place my hands and feet in the right position.
Yes I recommend this mat.
It's really nice. Feels lovely and soft, and much more grippy than my old one. The markings are great for alignment, too.

100% NATURAL CORK SURFACE
The Balance is sturdy, grounding and offers incredible padding in a much loved classic size. Easily rolls up just like a typical yoga mat. Perfect balance of weight and size.
Cork is a natural raw material which is 100% biodegradable, recyclable and renewable. Our cork bark is sustainably harvested in Portugal from the Cork Oak Tree without harming or cutting down any trees – that regularly grow to the wise old age of 300 years.
Cork contains a magical waxy compound called Suberin - which activates when wet - giving you powerful resistance and grip. The more you sweat - the more you grip. Cork offers a beautiful soft-touch, non-sticky grip.
We’ve combined the recycled tree bark of Portuguese cork trees with the natural sap of the rubber tree to create the perfect combination of grip and bounce. Our mats are buttery soft to touch yet firm enough to protect your joints & keep you focused. Cork is filled with millions of pockets of air, which bounce right back when compressed.
Natural Tree Rubber
The base of our mats is made from natural rubber – Sourced in Vietnam from the tree sap of the Hevea Brasiliensis tree a 100% renewable resource that is hand tapped from living rubber trees.
A weighty rubber layer prevents corner rolling, sliding and offers protective & firm cushioning for your joints, no matter how demanding your yoga practice gets.

“I got through a full practice on the Cork Space yoga mat with no slips and no slides. I felt rooted in my standing sequence and supported in my seated sequence. It was beautiful, both the practice and the yoga mat.”

How Flexible is Cork
The cork layer is made from tiny bits of compressed cork pieces bonded to a rubber base, this makes the mat super flexible across uneven ground and easy to roll up.
Why Choose Cork Space over Cheaper Alternatives?
Although at first glance they may appear similar, cheaper cork mats that use TPE or PER as they base are not as durable or sustainable. Poorer quality cork can also be more prone to chipping off. Many wonder why they didn’t invest in a better mat (that makes them smile every time) years ago.
Is Cork Sustainable?
Cork is a sustainable material because it can be harvested every 10 to 12 years and replaced with new bark. It also has a low carbon footprint, as the trees are not cut down in order to harvest the cork.
Demand for cork provides much needed investment in the industry, providing jobs and supporting the local economy. The harvesting of cork is a sustainable practice. While cork bark is regrowing, the trees suck up even more CO2 from the surrounding environment which helps combat global warming.
Suitable For Hot Yoga?
Yes – absolutely. It can handle any amount of sweat you can throw at it. Just lay it out flat to dry when you’re home. When wet the cork goes darker.
