Decorate your yoga mat using markers
There are truly limitless possibilities to how you can personalise your DIYogi™ yoga mat if you choose to draw or write on it.
All DIYogi™ mats can be customised on their entire surface - if you opt for a plain yoga mat, you can draw on it using the free set of stencils it comes with; if you pick the Mandala one, you can colour into its Mandala contour.
Or you can ignore the contours or stencils and just use your wonderful imagination!
Below are just a few ideas to get your creative juices (and your body) flowing:
Mandalas give us all a sense of calm and balance - so having one on your yoga mat while practicing helps you deepen your focus inwards. Plus they are just so visually pleasing!
There is a Mandala stencil included with all plain mats to help you draw one...or a few!
Intentions for your yoga practice
If you have a recurring intention for your practice you can now write it down on your DIYogi mat so it’s always in your sight.
‘Breathe’, ‘Enjoy’, ‘Let go’. What’s yours?
Yoga mat quotes
What’s your favourite quote? Write it down!
Here’s a good one we love: ‘You are what you repeatedly do. Excellence is, then, not an act, but a habit’ (Aristotle).
That way you will have it in front of your eyes for extra motivation whenever you practice.
3 things you are grateful for
Get a positivity boost while you practice!
Pick your main sources of gratitude and write them down on your mat so they are always within sight.
Yoga mat alignment lines
You can use the DIYogi™ mat to draw alignment lines that are tailored specifically to your own body. You can design them just as you like them, knowing exactly which alignment cues will help you most when you practice.
If you wish to avoid having your mat look too 'technical', our tip is to integrate them into a wider drawing!
A yoga mat with personalised messages
Ask the most important people in your life to leave their marks on your mat – names, signatures, small drawings or supportive messages and good wishes.
Imagine always having a reminder of their love and support in front of you while you practice!
