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!
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!
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?

The Classic Yogi – Classic Cork Yoga Mat
Today we present you with The Classic Yogi – Classic Cork Yoga Mat. Made of natural cork for the perfect grip, the mat is fab for any exercise you would like to do indoors or if you are a huge yoga fan. Measuring 68 x 24 inches and 3mm thick, it looks very natural. And the best? It is a sustainable product!
CorkYogis is the first company to create luxury cork yoga mats with a social mission. Remember, every time you purchase one, you support a girl and her education!
Parfait to carry around to gyms and yoga classes, it will become your favourite item too at home.
CorkYogis standard cork yoga mat provides an amazing non-slip, anti-bacterial and natural surface for your yoga practice with a grip that actually increases as you sweat. So that you can remain comfy while you exercise! I totally love l’idée!

It looks like a great practical mat
I think it is great! It will be cool – I have a sun lounger mat made of cork for the beach!
I do yoga and think this would be great
I think it would be really good,not as slippy, because that’s were i struggle as i get sweaty hands.
love yoga. this wld be fab
Very light to carry and non-slip
These are beautiful and so much better than the rubber ones, which tend to pong!
ive never seen one before! x
no slip, that is great.
It looks very practical
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.
i think it is a really cool design xx
I sounds great, non slip and springy
Would definitely like to compare to my current mat especially if it is sustainably made
Visually its fab, and i would imagine the cork gives a cushion feel…..
I love the idea of a cork mat. I think it wouldn’t be slippy during those long sessions.
Really interesting, would love to give it a go!
I think they look fantastic – anything natural has to be a bonus!
It looks great – environmentally friendly, natural and attractive. It seems to fit in well with the whole yoga ethos.
I think its great especially for the fact it helps the environment
I really like this mat and i think it will be very sturdy to use too.
I’d love to try it as my hands slip on all the other ones out there.
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.
I think it’s a brilliant idea, much better than a synthetic mat and sustainable too.
It looks fab, and very natural 🙂
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.
Just gotten back into yoga after years – loving it – love the idea of a natural material for yoga mats!
I love brands that combines great quality products that take a social responsibility.
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!
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.
I am wanting to start doing yoga or Pilates. This would be very useful
I think it’s fantastic to have a cork mat! So much nicer than a rubberized plastic one.
super light to carry
I saw these on dragons den and thought they was great
I have cork underlay and it’s really warm underfoot (as I found out while I was laying it!).
A mat made of cork is JUST FANTASTIC!
Beautiful and sustainable. Tactile and very posh!
Looks great, I’d love to try it
looks classy and perfect for all floor based exercise – love it’s non-slip
Love yoga so anything new to help me out is exciting – looking forward to trying it…if I win of course!
Sounds a very sensible idea
as long as it is practical and can be adequately cleaned then it looks good
Seems like it’s a great idea!
Cork would be brilliant for the grip… I have hot hands while doing yoga..!
I love this idea and it seems more sustainable than something made of plastic!
To be honest I have never seen a cork yoga mat but the practical aspect is great as it’s non slippery.
I really adore these mats. I would love to use one everyday for Pilates.
Cork is really comfortable and would be easy to keep clean too.
It’s wonderful that this is supporting sustainable business activities!
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!
Light and practical
Just started yoga after having two kids. This may would be great. The cork will be nice a spongy.
My knees hurt so a cork mat would be perfect for kneeling poses like the cat.
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
I think the cork mat would be quite hygenic too for those extra sweaty sessions.
Looks good…..will be admired at my yoga class
Durable, easy clean and non slip. Perfect.
It’s wonderful that buying these cork mats can have such a positive impact on girls globally.
I bet it’s really light too, so very practical to take to class.
Really hope I win this, looks great.
Brilliant yoga mat!

Would love this, really great
Great mat for a great cause.
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 !
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!
It looks surprisingly comfy ?
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!
Really hope I can win this cork mat, think it will be fab.

Flexible, which is good for durability and storage (as stored rolled up).
The cork will be really comfy and will help my yoga practice
love it! looks comfy and hardwearing
i think the yoga mat will be very useful for me!
Really interesting to read about, would like to see my yoga loving daughter’s opinion on it.
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.
It looks gorgeous!
Cork will be much better than a rubber mat. As it is antibacterial it will prevent it from smelling.
Flexible, non slip, hygienic, sustainable- what’s not to love?!
I love the the mat had a good grip when a yoga session gets sweaty.
I’ve never seen a yoga mat made of cork, but anything that means it’s not all yuck and slippy is genius!
I love that it is sustainable and it contributes to an excellent cause.
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!
I love the colour that the natural mat provides. Calming.
I’ve heard great things about cork yoga mats! Would love to try!
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
