Sheepskin yoga mats are a lovely alternative to the rubber mats most people use for their daily practice. The are super soft and provide lots of cushioning when sitting for long periods. They are particularly popular with practitioners of Kundalini yoga.
You may ask if Yogi's are meant to be vegetarian or vegan but actually there is no rule against eating meat in yoga and Kundalini practitioners believe that the skins are a by-product of the meat and that the sheepskin has helped to get to a higher place in its spiritual evolution when used for meditation.
Irish Hide Designs source sheepskins from the Wild Atlantic Way in Ireland, where the animals live a happy and healthy life, and where veterinary regulations are strictly adhered to, we have the skins tanned in Europe for happy yogis all over the world.
