Give the Gift of Liforme: Why a Liforme Yoga Mat is the Perfect Gift

Want to know the secret of picking out a great gift? It's easy when you know you’re giving something useful and attractive that is going to really improve someone’s life. If that sounds like a tall order, we know something that fits the bill. No surprise, we think a Liforme Yoga Mat makes the perfect gift. Yoga is a such a wonderful and popular practice because it helps you feel good: more comfortable in who you are, more connected to your body, less stressed, better able to meet your daily challenges. A Liforme Yoga Mat amplifies all of that because it makes the yoga experience even better. Here’s what raises our mats above the rest.

Alignment Guides

Many wannabe mats have tried but none have matched the efficacy of the original Liforme AlignForMe System. That’s because we designed our guidelines to be intuitive and flexible so they work for different practices and different bodies. For people that are new to yoga, the visual reinforcement of alignment cues is an invaluable aid for evolving body awareness and safe habits. Long-time practitioners can also benefit from adding this additional layer of visual feedback as they fine-tune and internalise the alignment of a wide range of postures over time. The AlignForMe system seamlessly elevates the yoga practice experience, no matter the experience of the yogi. And if you ever see one that looks a bit too similar to ours, we highly recommend you just say no to the illicit copying industry and take a moment to consider whether it comes with good karma or not (we suggest not, and you don't want to practice yoga, of all things, on that kind of foundation). 

Ultimate Grip

Nothing is worse for your stability and your confidence than slipping around on your sweaty yoga mat. Unfortunately, many mainstream mats, from the budget bin on up to the highest end, are made out of a material, PVC, that is just inherently slippery. That’s why those bunchy mat towels have proliferated and people are treating their brand-new, expensive mats with salt scrubs. All of that is completely unnecessary when your mat’s surface has been purposefully designed to prevent slipping. You won’t find a surface that grips like Liforme’s proprietary eco-polyurethane on any other mat. 

Truly Eco-Friendly

All people of conscience are becoming increasingly concerned with the amount of stuff we’re contributing to the trash piles of the world. When you give a gift, you’re passing that responsibility on to a loved one. It’s not a very good gift if it comes with a side order of environmental guilt, is it? We’re proud to say that giving a Liforme mat comes with none of that because our mats are proven (in tests by independent scientists at Imperial College London) to be biodegradable in landfill conditions within one to five years. A lot of companies claim their products are eco-friendly but don’t have the research to back it up. We do.So now that you’re all set to get mats for everyone on your list, the only question is who gets which mat? With our Signature Liforme Yoga Mat, Liforme Travel Mat, Liforme Yoga Pad, Expressions Collection, and unique special editions, there really is something for everyone. Head over to our Mat Buyer’s Guide to find the ones for you!

Love,
