Have you ever tried to practice yoga in a room that has carpet? When you put your mat down, it is very hard to balance and feel secure. Whether you put weight onto your hands or feet, the mat just sinks and moves underneath you.
The rooms in my house are carpeted and when I wanted to do more yoga at home, I knew I needed to find a solution. I even went so far as getting a quote to put down hardwood flooring in one room, but spending thousands of dollars to do so just didn’t make sense. In my quest to find a cost-effective alternative, I found the LifeBoard!
The LifeBoard comes in two 8.5 lb. pieces that snap together to make a firm, solid surface. It’s basically a portable yoga floor made out of recycled materials that sits securely on the carpet (or any surface really, including outside). Since it’s a non-slip surface, my yoga mat doesn’t move at all while practicing yoga.
I’d HIGHLY recommend this product to everyone in a similar situation. At about $100 and a money back guarantee, it’s the best investment I’ve made in my home yoga practice.
Although a home practice doesn’t replace working with a qualified yoga instructor that you trust, it will take your yoga experience to the next level. Don’t let having carpeted rooms be your excuse for not developing a consistent yoga practice any longer. You can order a LifeBoard for yourself through Amazon, where it has a current customer rating of 4.9 out of 5 stars.
Do you have another solution for practicing yoga on carpet? Please leave a comment! I’d love to hear from you.
