Product Specifications

Shipping weight : 7 pounds

Material :the base is made of natural and sustainably sourced rubber and then topped with a thin and flexible all-natural layer of sustainably sourced cork.

Length : 72 inches

Width : 25 inches

The pros and cons of this product.

Pros:


Cork is naturally antimicrobial. This means your mat will stay smell-free without the use of sprays or cleaners.

The manufacturer GURUS, has teamed up with Trees For The Future , to plant a tree for every Gurus product purchased. This ensures that every item produced gives back the natural resources that helped create it

Cork naturally displaces moisture. During practice when this mat gets wet due to sweat, this mat will not slip and at the same time will maintain its grip on the surface it is resting on. There is no need to use a towel on this mat whilst using it.
This mat is double-sided,so you can use the rubber or cork side when practicing depending on your requirements that day. Both sides offer excellent traction.

This mat is great for indoors and outdoors as the cork layer does not absorb heat the way foam and rubber mats do. This is ideal for those that love to connect with the outdoors to enhance their yoga or meditation practice.

Check out this awesome review post !! :

” Once you step on this mat you will immediately feel the difference in quality compared to tradition rubber or vinyl yoga mats. The cork surface has a really nice premium feel and great traction. It really does make the ordinary yoga mat feel cheap. I’m also really impressed with the build quality and aesthetics of this mat, it reminded me of an Apple product when I opened the box. Its’s always a win to get such a nice product that is Eco friendly. Good job Gurus! ”

Cons:

I did find one negative observation in the reviews when doing my checks. This mat was reported as being a bit to heavy to be carried around. Weighing in at 5 pounds or 2.5 kg approximately, I suppose that could be true as this is equivalent to a large box of household laundry powder !

How much does it cost?

The price for this excellent Guru Natural Cork Mat is $99.50 (plus $25.83 Shipping & Import Fees Deposit to Australia where relevant) as advertised on Amazon.

Where can I get it?

How long does delivery take?

Delivery time to my native country (Australia) has been estimated at approximately 14 – 21 days if you choose AmazonGlobal Priority Shipping at checkout or 10-11 days if you choose AmazonGlobal Priority Shipping at checkout.This is according to the product specifications on the Amazon website.

Is there a Guarantee/warranty/refund policy for this product?

I had a look on the Amazon site for a Guarantee/warranty/refund policy for this product and it referred me to the manufacturers’ website. The manufacturer ilovegurus.com site states the below in relation to a Guarantee/warranty/refund policy for this product :

Gurus Guarantee – ” We spend a lot of time perfecting our sandals and think you’ll love them. We do know everyone’s feet are different, so if your aren’t happy in Gurus, please email us (gurus@ilovegurus.com) and we’ll have you smiling! ”

I know right,it only refers to sandals !! This guarantee is at the bottom page of all product pages on their site whether it be a sandal or a yoga mat page. I think this is just a case of their site administration not updating each page with the relevant information and their guarantee for sandals would equally apply to their yoga mats.

So just What are my thoughts on the product?

First up, let me say that my review on this product is built on my own online research of this product with information gathered from the supplier and other online reviews of the same product. I have never owned or used this product personally myself.

With that being said, I can now say what I personally liked about this set as an avid fan and devotee of yoga and meditation:

  • I really like the idea of a mat and a cushion helping to support me comfortably while trying to concentrate on the meditation at hand and not having to worry about sore knees, back etc whilst sitting.

  1. I found this really interesting as I’ve been wondering if there was a more natural alternative to my current yoga mat. I’d imagine there would be a lot of people interested in this mat for its natural fibres and the sustainability focus of the company. Do you know if it comes in any fun colours, and if it is easy to roll up and store away? The weight of it wouldn’t put me off because I’d only be using it at home, but I do need to be able to store it easily. Also, what is the grip like on it? I’m very beginner in my yoga practice and don’t like to feel like my feet are slipping around in poses (unless I know it’s my own fault from my form haha).Thank you

    1. Hi Emily,thanks for your comment here!I dont think it comes in any other colour other than the natural cork.Being a double sided mat the grip is stated to be excellent on whichever side you use.It was also shown in my research that with the mat being made of cork and rubber,it still had an excellent flexibility about it to roll up etc.

  2. For a very long time i have been thinking about getting a yoga mat to practice my daily routine on but i haven’t came across one that rally impressed me until now. I really am interested in the type of material used to create these mats as it seems to be more resistant to the movements done in yoga. Thanks for sharing will definitely check it out.  

  3. Hi Billy, This is an excellent review with all specific information about The Guru Natural Cork Mat. The most important part of this product is antimicrobial and it has also guarantee. Is it available in other color also and how long time need to delivery it in Malaysia?.I am going to buy one of that soon. Thanks for sharing this important product with us.

    1. Hi mz.thanks for your comment here! From what I found in my research,this is only available in the natural cork colour.I am pretty sure the relevant delivery time is stated from wherever in the world you are viewing the Amazon link from e.g. it should state delivery time to Malaysia if viewed from Malaysia.
