Enjoy The Freedom of Going Mat-Less!

YOGA PAWS™, THE YOGA MAT YOU WEAR HELPS YOU ENJOY THE BENEFITS OF THE YOGA LIFESTYLE ANYWHERE, ANYTIME

Reviewed by Madelyn Miller, the TravelLady

Holding your downward facing dog or triangle pose has just gotten easier.  The introduction of a simple yet innovative new prop means that yoga fans can easily practice their routines wherever and whenever they want – without a mat.

Instead of lugging around a bulky, cumbersome yoga mat, you can simply toss Yoga Paws™ into your purse, pocket or travel bag for a convenient and effective fitness tool that goes wherever you go.  Simply slip on the comfortable, lightweight Yoga Paws mitts onto your hands and feet and you are ready to practice yoga anywhere.  They can be used on most any non-abrasive surface such as carpet, hardwood floors, or with a towel when traveling.  To clean, simply wash with a mild soap and air dry.

Now I have no Excuses

It is so easy to travel with Yoga Paws. It doesn't matter if the hotel you are visiting (or family or friends) have a gym. You don't need to worry about a schedule or take any special yoga clothes.

You can use the Yoga Paws in your room. Or if you are visiting a place with a gorgeous countryside, you can use it outside. You can even do yoga   in Central Park  or on your lunch hour—just pack the yoga paws into your purse.

Yoga Paws are small mitts that fit snugly over the palms of your hands and the balls of your feet.  They are made from a unique non-slip material (nylon/polyvinyl blend) similar to that of a traditional yoga mat, with perforated holes for ventilation.  The top is made of breathable stretch polyester, secured with a Velcro closure.  They are very comfortable to wear and are effective for the range of beginner to advanced yoga poses.  Yoga Paws have been featured in Marie Claire, Self, Prevention, Fitness, Health, New York Times, BusinessWeek and Lifetime Television, to name just a few.

Yoga Paws are ideal for anyone who enjoys practicing yoga, pilates or any other related fitness routines that involve the use of a mat, particularly:

      Frequent travelers
      Professionals who exercise at the office during their lunch breaks
      Anyone with a busy, on-the-go lifestyle that needs to be prepared to exercise whenever and wherever they can squeeze in the time
      Perfect to use at home.  Tuck them away in a drawer and practice in any room of the house.
      With a traditional yoga mat or new cloth mats, for extra stability

Yoga paws sell for $29.95 and are available in women's and men's sizes.  Yoga Paws are available through online retailers such as Amazon.com, as well as directly through the company's website at www.yogapaws.com .  For more information or to place an order, call 866-964-2790.

"I am very excited about Yoga Paws," said Paula Brill, a luxury travel consultant.  "Because I travel frequently, I have found them to be the perfect fit in my suitcase.  Now I can practice yoga safely in my hotel room.  I simply spread out a clean hotel towel on the floor, and the paws keep me as safe as if I were using a mat."

"I use Yoga Paws when I do yoga in places that I don't want to take my mat, like the beach," said Mary Lou Doner of Seaside Park, N.J.  "They really help stabilize my hands."
