The Yoga Mat

Gillian Lemermeyer

Abstract


After centuries of yoga practice without any specialized surface, the yoga mat now seems to have become a nearly indispensable part of the practice. This phenomenology explores the intimations, the intimacy, and the space of the yoga mat in its everyday usage. It seems that the mat convenes a sacred space not only for the practice of yoga but of the practice of yoga.
