Inspired by traditional practitioners  

Yogis practiced back in the days in shalas with a mud floor covered with dry dharba grass & cotton cloth spread on the top.

Conditions have changed and the surface is not made up of mud anymore so we had to adjust a little and create a bit thicker surface than the cloth.

Leela: Yoga Rug is about 3 mm thick which will create some extra cushioning when you place it on your mat.
