Aurorae is a family business, popular active lifestyle e-retailer, and yoga mat company founded in 2009 by yoga student and cancer survivor, Dennis Ingui. Cancer-free for more than 15 years, Ingui started practicing yoga as an outlet in his life to help build his body and develop inner peace of mind. Aurorae’s flagship Classic Yoga Mats became the top-rated yoga mats on Amazon.com after less than a year in operation, quickly making Aurorae one of the top yoga mat companies in the country. What started out as a hobby grew into an enjoyable venture for Ingui and his family.
In addition to Aurorae’s variety of yoga mats, designed for all levels of practice, Aurorae boasts a 5-Star feedback rating on all other products including yoga accessories and active lifestyle products. From a yoga mat company to so much more, Aurorae is looking forward to providing the best and most unique products available to the yoga and active communities.
In the last couple years, Aurorae has expanded beyond just a yoga mat company, and now offers a variety of high-quality yoga accessories, fitness and yoga apparel, accessories, aromatherapy products, and active lifestyle products such as swim towels and flip flops. Their product development team is consistently hard at work designing new eco-friendly, quality products for you to enjoy. They also partner with charities through the Aurorae Charitable Partners Donation Program to give back to communities and organizations in need.
- Drew W.Verified BuyerRated 5 out of 5 stars1 week agoReviewingAurorae Cork Pro Yoga Mat 73" 5mmAwesome for men who sweat during practice
(These are initial impressions, I can't comment on how this stands up to use over time. )
I'm 6 ft 195lb and top-heavy, so I tend to slide forward during down dog if my palms are sweaty. It really distracts me during practice. However, the thickness of this mat combined with the cork do a great job of keeping me stationary. I slide about 1 inch per 30-45 seconds on a standard mat, which is reduced to less than a 1/16in in the same time on this one, and that's only during intense sessions. This mat is thick enough to be used on tile or other hard surfaces if your movements are controlled. 1 more mm would be ideal but this is a great compromise if you have to carry it around. I keep it atop foam mats so the weight and portability aren't important to me (the thickness is also decidedly immaterial due to the foam mats). Comfort and quality are 5 and 5 so far, but then I've only used it a handful of times. If the cork starts breaking off before a year I'll be back to revise this review. I would've given 4 stars if it were more expensive, unless it was 6mm, then I still would've given 5. I've given a 4 for durability because I just don't know yet, but it seems sufficient. The important take-aways are: good apparent quality, right price, very comfy, soft and smooth, keeps me steady, long and wide enough for at least a 6-foot person.Preferred Type of Yoga Practice VinyasaLevel of Yoga Expertise BeginnerFrequency (a week) 2-4Perspiration Level ModerateDurability Star RatingRated 4.0 on a scale of 1 to 5
- Allison S.Verified BuyerRated 4 out of 5 stars2 years agoReviewingAurorae Cork Pro Yoga Mat 73" 5mmGood Enough
Disappointing the surface of the mat is a thin layer of cork mesh, pieces of the cork had fallen away exposing the mesh holding it together. The rubber is very supportive in the various positions I've been in. I use it on laminate flooring, but the mat does bunch up when I'm using a foam roller. I had gotten one previously for my 6' tall brother who enjoys the length. Said it was slick and that he sweats a lot.Preferred Type of Yoga Practice OtherLevel of Yoga Expertise BeginnerFrequency (a week) 2-4Perspiration Level LightDurability Star RatingRated 4.0 on a scale of 1 to 5
