Yantra Mat - Fully Tested and Approved!

So I finished week two of testing out the Yantra mat and this is my final review. If you missed the first two parts please read those first: What is a Yantra Mat? and Yantra Mat Review (Week 1).

This past week I tried all of the basic positions shown on Yantraway.com.

Back
This is the position that I recommend starting off with. It is very comfortable especially if rest your head on a folded towel. The first week I wore a tank top, but this week I tried it with just a sports bra as is shown on the website. Even with the sharp points on my bare skin I was still very comfortable.

Stomach
I found this position very comfortable with a tank top on and with a folded towel under my head. However, when I tried this position with just a sports bra on as shown in the picture below I found it VERY uncomfortable. I guess my stomach is just too sensitive.

Seat
In this position you have the mat on a chair and sit on it as shown here. I liked this position a lot. If I cound sit on this at work without everyone thinking that I was a weirdo I totally would.

Cheek
This position totally surprised me. After trying the stomach with just the sports bra position I thought this position would be horrible. I am not able to lay my head down on the mat as a pillow the way it shows in the picture because my ears are too sensitive, but just pressing my cheek onto the mat for a couple minutes completely relieved my jaw pain! I have very bad TMJ so this is really amazing. I will be doing this position often.

I learned that lying on the mat energizes me too much, so I can't use it right before bedtime as is recommended in days 5-14. I believe I will continue using the mat almost daily as a way to reduce stress and relieve jaw pain when I get home from work.

I personally think the mat is totally worth the $69 price tag (for the medium size), if you are looking for a new way to relax and relieve pain. What do you think? Would buy one? Let me know your thoughts!




This review is solely my opinion. Other people may have different experiences with the product. I have received no compensation for my review other than receiving a sample to test.
