How do I use a Gajahgoogoo mysore yoga rug?
sticky mats that get more slippery when wet, mysore rugs provide
better traction when they are damp. To use your rug, simply
place it on top of a sticky mat. If you would like to improve
grip even more, lightly mist your rug with water before you
begin your practice. Some ashtangis prefer to start practice
on a sticky mat, then roll out the mysore rug when they have
started to sweat.
do I care for my Gajahgoogoo mysore yoga rug?
all the perspiration the rugs absorb, it was important to us to
develop a rug that could be machine washed – after all, how
many of us have access to a dhobi-walla to handwash our rugs?
mysore yoga rugs are machine washable on gentle cycle using cold
water only. Do not use the spin cycle or the dryer; the rugs should
be hung to dry. Some like to use their rug while still damp for
increased traction. Colours may fade slightly over time.

after washing. Just lie the rug flat to dry and these will fade
I need a mysore rug?
you are happy with your sticky mat and you like the tackiness that
it provides, there is no need to get a mysore rug. Some reasons
to choose a Gajahgoogoo mysore yoga rug are
you perspire a lot and are looking for something that will absorb
their sweat and provide traction even when wet
you like the convenience of being able to machine wash the rugs
you prefer the feel of natural fibre to rubber underfoot
you want to choose a more environmentally friendly medium to practice
you want a rug that can do double duty as a (good looking) floor
rug when you are not practicing on it
you want to be able to fold your rug to carry it to practice or
to travel with, instead of rolling it up
you find lines on the rug helpful in checking your alignment
what I like best about using my Gajahgoogoo rug is that it provides
a nice balance between traction and slide. For example, when I jump
back into chaturanga (plank position), my toes sometimes (often)
brush the mat as I bring them through my arms. On a sticky mat,
my toes will jam and I get stuck there, while on my Gajahgoogoo
rug I can continue to swing back into chaturanga. One day, I hope
I’ll be able to jump back on any surface – until then,
I’m quite grateful to the selectively sticky nature of my
I get an original rug or a non-slip rug?
depends on how you plan to use your rug. If you always put your
mysore rug over a sticky mat, then get an original rug, because
it’s a little lighter and more compact, and takes up less
space in the washing machine (and its cheaper).
if you want to practice without a sticky mat, or you’re thinking
of traveling with your rug, then you might want to choose a Gajahgoogoo
Journey non-slip rug. The rubber backing makes the rug just a little
thicker and heavier (1.7kg vs 1.3kg), but you have the flexibility
of practicing on just about any surface without having to bring
a sticky mat along. The nonslip version is also machine washable
