Mother’s Day Giveaways – Win a Classic Cork Yoga Mat worth £65

Bonjour lecteurs! It has been so busy lately with all our fab giveaways and many blog events that I barely had the time to exercise. I usually try to go for a daily jog but the terrible weather has not helped either… After some snow, it is now raining a lot and the last thing on earth I feel like doing is to run. I know that many of our readers love exercising and keeping fit. Like moi, really, when I am not spending much time at a cool bar like Café Fantasia 🙂 So when I organised our big Mother’s Day series of giveaways, I knew I needed to offer more than beautiful lingerie, cool accessories or natural beauty products… Today is totally different as you can Win a Classic Cork Yoga Mat worth £65. Feeling like you could do with a bit of meditation or use a new mat to exercise indoors? This one is for you! So don’t miss out on this unique opportunité!

CorkYogis – A Brand on a Mission

CorkYogis is a website where you can find some of the best Cork Yoga Mats. Seen on le fameux Dragons Den, the shop is also supporting the charity Destiny Foundation. The CorkYogis’s founder came across this organisation and felt they were doing something important!

This is what I want to be like!

Indeed, it fights injustices of human trafficking and the challenges that survivors face. The charity helps women in India out of sex slavery by giving them an education so that they can learn skills to find a job. Their motto is ‘One life at a time’ and we totally love that, because if you do too much at the same time, it is not always effective.

So the brand is here to combine the huge popularity of yoga in the west while supporting vulnerable communities. For every natural CorkYogis mat purchased, the label provides a contribution towards a training course for one girl. For every CorkYogis bag purchased, you help someone else!

And the mats then? Well, we are coming to it right now!

CorkYogis – The Mats

The brand’s founder is herself a huge yoga fan but the constant slipping around on wet, sweaty mats became a bit too much for her. And then, she came across some Canadian paddleboarders using a cork surface for paddleboard yoga. L’idée de génie! The cork holds some amazing grip so that you don’t slip!

A great natural colour too!

We seem to do a lot of collabs with similar brands this week 🙂 It was the same concern for the brand Slipfree that we featured in Baba Fashionista!

What do you think?

  4. Karen Hughes
    March 15, 2018 / 5:28 pm

    I think it would be really good,not as slippy, because that’s were i struggle as i get sweaty hands.

  5. Annaloa Hilmarsdottir
    March 15, 2018 / 6:09 pm

    Very light to carry and non-slip

  6. Carolyn99

    These are beautiful and so much better than the rubber ones, which tend to pong!

    I like that it provides an amazing non-slip, anti-bacterial and natural surface for yoga practice with grip that actually increases as you sweat.

  14. Katy Malkin
    March 16, 2018 / 8:10 am

    Would definitely like to compare to my current mat especially if it is sustainably made

  15. Claire Glace
    March 16, 2018 / 9:02 am

    Visually its fab, and i would imagine the cork gives a cushion feel…..

  16. Mary H
    March 16, 2018 / 9:52 am

    I love the idea of a cork mat. I think it wouldn’t be slippy during those long sessions.

  23. Ali Thorpe
    March 16, 2018 / 2:43 pm

    I’ve never used a cork mat although I they’re appealing as they’re more eco-friendly. My mat is getting slippery as it’s old and I have thought of replacing with cork but it can be expensive.

    March 16, 2018 / 4:13 pm

    I think it’s a brilliant idea, much better than a synthetic mat and sustainable too.

  25. Emma
    March 16, 2018 / 4:13 pm

    It looks fab, and very natural 🙂

  26. Hannah
    March 16, 2018 / 4:44 pm

    I really like the idea of a cork mat. It’s more hygienic, and eco-friendly & I imagine it’s more ‘grippy’ than a conventional yoga mat. I also really love the ethos of the company Cork Yogis who seem to be all about giving back to the community & empowering women.

  27. Lucy Barlow
    March 16, 2018 / 6:43 pm

    Just gotten back into yoga after years – loving it – love the idea of a natural material for yoga mats!

  29. Laura Chapman

    I think the cork yoga mat is fab and love that they’re helping women in India out of sex slavery – what an amazing idea!

  30. Jackie Howell
    March 17, 2018 / 8:43 am

    so many great features but the fact it is sustainable is great news to hear as well as every purchase helps the cause to stop human trafficking.

  31. Sharon Hirst
    March 17, 2018 / 1:03 pm

    I am wanting to start doing yoga or Pilates. This would be very useful

  32. Carolyn99
    March 17, 2018 / 2:46 pm

    I think it’s fantastic to have a cork mat! So much nicer than a rubberized plastic one.

    Love yoga so anything new to help me out is exciting – looking forward to trying it…if I win of course!

  40. Elizabeth Smith
    March 18, 2018 / 6:40 pm

    Sounds a very sensible idea

  41. pete c
    March 19, 2018 / 11:00 am

    as long as it is practical and can be adequately cleaned then it looks good

  42. Rich Tyler
    March 19, 2018 / 2:55 pm

    Seems like it’s a great idea!

  43. Rebecca Barnes
    March 19, 2018 / 4:23 pm

    Cork would be brilliant for the grip… I have hot hands while doing yoga..!

  44. Amanda S
    March 19, 2018 / 7:23 pm

    I love this idea and it seems more sustainable than something made of plastic!

  45. Sadiyya Maryam
    March 20, 2018 / 6:42 am

    To be honest I have never seen a cork yoga mat but the practical aspect is great as it’s non slippery.

  46. Carolyn99
    March 20, 2018 / 7:49 am

    I really adore these mats. I would love to use one everyday for Pilates.

  47. Mary H
    March 20, 2018 / 9:04 am

    Cork is really comfortable and would be easy to keep clean too.

  48. Rebecca Barnes
    March 20, 2018 / 10:23 am

    It’s wonderful that this is supporting sustainable business activities!

  49. Jodie Cook
    March 20, 2018 / 1:29 pm

    I currently have a georgoues purple plastic yoga mat, but it does get quite slippy! I actually have a cork bath mat, which is great as it absorbs water really well and is non-slip (but would obviously be far too small to borrow to do yoga!), so a much larger version of that sounds like a great idea to replace my current yoga mat!

  50. Sharon Freemantle
    March 20, 2018 / 5:07 pm

    Light and practical

  51. Laura Scott
    March 20, 2018 / 7:45 pm

    Just started yoga after having two kids. This may would be great. The cork will be nice a spongy.

  52. Mary H
    March 21, 2018 / 8:38 am

    My knees hurt so a cork mat would be perfect for kneeling poses like the cat.

  53. Kelly Hemmings
    March 21, 2018 / 12:30 pm

    I’d love to give it a try. I’ve heard so much about these fab natural made cork mats that absorb sweat making hot yoga much easier

  54. Laura Scott
    March 22, 2018 / 10:15 am


  55. Mary H
    March 22, 2018 / 11:50 am

    I think the cork mat would be quite hygenic too for those extra sweaty sessions.

  56. Karen Holden-Craufurd
    March 22, 2018 / 5:13 pm

    Looks good…..will be admired at my yoga class

  57. Sheena Batey
    March 22, 2018 / 5:59 pm

    Durable, easy clean and non slip. Perfect.

  58. Rebecca Barnes
    March 23, 2018 / 9:20 am

    It’s wonderful that buying these cork mats can have such a positive impact on girls globally.

  59. Mary H
    March 23, 2018 / 11:39 am

    It’s so gorgeous, I have been dreaming about all the difficult yoga positions 8 will be able to do on it, as I will be practising so much !

  65. Carolyn99
    March 26, 2018 / 9:21 am

    It is so gorgeous, that I have been dreaming about it. Specially all the really difficult positions I will suddenly be able to do, as I will be practicing so much on the cork mat if I win!

  66. Rachael Sexey
    March 27, 2018 / 9:13 am

    It looks surprisingly comfy ?

  67. Ruth Harwood
    March 27, 2018 / 9:19 am

    I love the sound of this – would make my yoga easier! I can only do so many moves due to neck issues, but what I can do would be great on this mat!

  68. Laura Scott
    March 27, 2018 / 1:13 pm

    environmentally friendly

  77. Laura Scott
    March 31, 2018 / 8:31 pm

  87. Laura Scott
    April 5, 2018 / 8:02 pm

    Looks like a great mat that will really help my yoga practice as the cork is absorbent.

  88. Mary H
    April 6, 2018 / 8:55 am

    Because it’s made from a natural substance and is more hygenic, I bet it doesn’t smell a bit funky after all that sweat.

  89. Laura Scott
    April 6, 2018 / 9:21 pm

    Flexible, which is good for durability and storage (as stored rolled up).

  98. Laura Scott

  102. Caron Twyman
    April 10, 2018 / 10:38 am

    The cork mat looks good. I bet it is quite springy and easy on the hands and feet. I must say, the picture reminds me of Coldplay’s The Hardest Part video, lol.

  103. Lorna Roberts
    April 10, 2018 / 11:40 am

    It looks gorgeous!

  104. Laura Scott
    April 10, 2018 / 8:01 pm

    Cork will be much better than a rubber mat. As it is antibacterial it will prevent it from smelling.

  105. Laura Scott
    April 11, 2018 / 5:56 am

    Flexible, non slip, hygienic, sustainable- what’s not to love?!

  106. Mary H
    April 11, 2018 / 7:53 am

    I love the the mat had a good grip when a yoga session gets sweaty.

  107. Laura Corrall
    April 11, 2018 / 5:43 pm

    I’ve never seen a yoga mat made of cork, but anything that means it’s not all yuck and slippy is genius!

  108. Laura Scott
    April 12, 2018 / 8:09 am

    I love that it is sustainable and it contributes to an excellent cause.

  109. Carolyn99
    April 12, 2018 / 8:23 am

    I love everything about this mat. Sustainability, touch ability, natural, comfort…everything!

    I even think I would be motivated to do far more Pilates and yoga if I had one.

    And I would be the subject of intense envy at any classes I took it to!

  110. Mary H
    April 12, 2018 / 5:01 pm

    I love the colour that the natural mat provides. Calming.

  112. Dean T
    April 12, 2018 / 11:43 pm

    I hate plastic things they cause too much damage to the seas, I think cork is a brilliant material we should use more of and the mat looks fab

  113. Laura Scott
    April 13, 2018 / 7:50 am

    Would love to use this mat to practice yoga, non-slip and hygienic. Great!

  114. Mary H
    April 13, 2018 / 9:22 am

  117. Carolyn99

    This is just fantastic. My yoga and Pilates would improve no end as I would be unable to leave the mat for long!

  123. Samantha R
    April 14, 2018 / 1:35 pm

    I think it would be so comforable as it would be soft& would mould your shape.
