7 Pretty Yoga Mats …

I think everything in the world ought to be pretty. If I have to look at it, why shouldn’t it have a little flair, a little design, a little prettiness? This “pretty” philosophy carries over from my home to theyoga studio, where the functional utility of a yoga mat gets all gussied up. Here are 7 pretty yoga mats, all of them designed to work beautiful, and be beautiful, adding a little inspiration while you’re stretching and balancing.

1. Gaiam Dragonfly Yoga Mat
