Crazy Huge boingboing.net does…a yoga mat review. Prana Revolution.

prana revolution eco yoga mat boingboing.net

You know the world’s getting hip to greening our habits, and taking care of our laptopasana-bent bodies, when uber-cool-for-school Boing Boing is doing an eco yoga mat review. So what’s their favorite mat?

You guessed it: the prAna Revolution, which I sorta (haven’t actually used one, yet) reviewed a week or two back.

So what’s the big deal? Boing Boing is an Everest-mighty e-publication that makes elephantjournal.com’s web traffic look like Boulder’s low-sloping foothills. Getting a shout-out from such a popular web site is akin to God reaching down and touching Adam’s finger…it’s the kind of web event that send 5 kajillion (to get technical) new readers your way, and that Google sits up and takes notice of. More importantly, Boing Boing’s review will give a jump start to the greening of yoga practice everywhere—why, only a few years ago there weren’t any good green option. Now there’s Jade, Manduka’s eKo, and prAna.

Boing Boing is worth following on twitter—which I did since seeing the above review (click image for complete review of prAna, and be sure to read all the snarky comments). I encourage all you greenies and yogaers and Buddhoids to do the same. Why? Good. Writing.

    the Revolution mat is my new ride, i'm lovin' it. Great to see a mainstream conversation on yoga accoutrement! :]

    I had the chance to practice with its little brotha' – the prana neo natural, which i hear is the same construction as the Revolution, and it was AMAZING! I practice yoga occasionally with different teachers, but I could feel the difference. It's got my two thumbs up. ;-)

  3. [...] well-educated citizens of Boulder what Treehugger is, you’ll get a lot of blank stares. Boing Boing makes Treehugger look small, and yet hardly anyone I know, including me, knows what Boing Boing is. [...]
