Yoga and fitness on water? Yes, you heard it right! The newly developed inflatable yoga mats now allow us to take our yoga and fitness from the gym to the pool.
These inflatable mats offer participants the opportunity to challenge their body in a new and fun way – while getting the best possible core body workout.
Taking fitness to the water will awaken our fast twitch muscles which rarely get asked to fire on solid ground. The instability under your feet means your body is continuously being challenged to find balance, or a place to rest. Just sitting, kneeling or standing on the mat pushes your body to find balance.
