As you know one of the can’t do without yoga accessories is a yoga mat.
When I started yoga back in 1999 there were not many places to purchase a yoga mat. I could only find them at the studio where I was practicing. But nowadays they are everywhere and I mean everywhere. So you maybe asking yourself, why make this list? Well because I’m all about supporting Canadian businesses. Yes, you can buy them at Shoppers, Walmart, Chapters, even Canadian Tire which are all good places but if you wanted to buy from an independent Canadian business here are some choices.
If I’ve missed a business please send me an email and I’ll get it up here.

This might be the quickest way to get one. In addition it helps support your yoga studio which to me is always a good idea.
