READ: buy the SHAKTI mat NOT the YANTRA mat
on 21 January 2011
A few months back my roommate bought herself a Shakti mat. I tried it and I absolutely loved it. I got my own Shakti mat and have used it almost every night since. However, when my parents came over from the Philippines just this Christmas gone, my dad tried the Shakti mat and fell in love with it too. I gave mine to him to bring back to the Philippines and thought that I'll just get myself another one. When I saw this Yantra mat, at almost half the price of the Shakti mat, I thought, how different could those plastic spikes be? Plus, this colour was beautiful (considering I'm not a purple person) and the bag looked really handy. But now I am sorely disappointed because it is inferior to the Shakti mat. Believe me, believe me. How different can those spikes be? They wouldn't be £25 cheaper for nothing, that's how. Oh well, at least my dad is back home in the islands enjoying the Shakti mat!
