Blankets have been a supportive staple in yoga since the 1960s and 70s, when Iyengar Teacher Roger Cole traveled to Mexico specifically to buy traditional Mexican blankets for his yoga practice and students. They remain an ideal prop of choice, thanks to their durability and versatility, great for propping yourself up in a restorative posture, adding weight and warmth during savasana, and padding sensitive areas throughout asana. You can also use one as a meditation-cushion alternative or simply as a throw for your next beach day! Take home a piece of the country’s rich culture with Native Yoga’s selection of colorful blankets in various patterns and combinations—all handmade in Mexico.
- Melissa B.Verified BuyerRated 3 out of 5 stars2 years agoReviewingNative Yoga Mayan Calendar Blanket Black/WhiteLove the design but
It is a bit large for a yoga blanket but the biggest problem is both myself and the surrounding area looked like a blizzard had struck so I put it in the dryer for a while on fluff hoping the excess lint would be greatly diminished . It wasn’t. Perhaps a wash will do it but haven’t tried that yet. It is a lovely blanket otherwise.Preferred Type of Yoga Practice Vinyasa, Yin (Restorative)Level of Yoga Expertise IntermediateFrequency (a week) 5-7Perspiration Level LightDurability Star RatingRated 3.0 on a scale of 1 to 5
- GrandprixsheRated 1 out of 5 stars2 years agoReviewingNative Yoga Mayan Calendar BlanketMisleading
The picture for this blanket is misleading. I thought one side of the blanket would have the scene of the man carrying the woman and the other side of the Mayan calendar. The man carrying the woman wasn’t on my blanket. The quality of the blanket is excellent and it’s a large blanket, but I ordered it specifically because of the picture of the man carrying the woman which it, so I’m sending it back. I’d rate the quality of the blanket 5 stars, but because the advertised picture is misleading I have to give 1 star. If you don’t mind this discrepancy, then it’s a great blanket otherwise.Preferred Type of Yoga Practice OtherLevel of Yoga Expertise BeginnerFrequency (a week) 0-1Perspiration Level LightDurability Star RatingRated 5.0 on a scale of 1 to 5

I use this blanket under my mat when practicing outside and it is wonderfully durable and when in the sand, very little sand actually makes it through, easy to clean and I love the weight.Preferred Type of Yoga Practice OtherLevel of Yoga Expertise IntermediateFrequency (a week) 5-7Perspiration Level LightDurability Star RatingRated 5.0 on a scale of 1 to 5
