Questions and answers

  • Are you a Canadian Company?

    Yes! We are proudly a born, raised and operated Canadian company.
  • Where are your products made?

    Our products are made in many different places, from all over the world. Check out the product FAQs below for details based on each product or each individual product page.
  • How do I day-to-day clean my mat?

    The best way to clean your B MAT is by wiping the surface on a regular basis with plain water and neutral soap or use our tested and approved B CLEAN Mat Spray. Alternatively you could whip up a cleaning solution with enzymatic action by mixing half water and half vinegar or lemon juice. Any of these options are a effective gentle cleaner, great on a B MAT surface.
  • How do I give my mat a deep clean?

    If you feel like giving your mat a deep clean you can hose it down or soak it in a bath tub, max 30 degree water, with a mild soap (warning: saturation of the mat material can contribute to a degradation of our logo).
  • Which chemicals can I use on my mat?

    Avoid using solvents or harsh abrasives as these will break down the compounds that keep the B MAT grippy and supportive.
  • How do I dry my B-Mat

    Hang your mat over a shower bar or ledge to air dry. You can take it outside to dry, but if you take your mat outside to dry, keep it in the shade to avoid direct sunlight and avoid hanging it over metal or wood. Draping it over a plastic bannister works great. Because B MATs are like a sponge, a fully saturated mat may take 48+ hours to dry out. Leave yourself enough time to have the mat dry before you practice on it.
  • Can I leave my mat outside to dry?

    It is best to avoid prolonged periods of direct sunlight (an outdoor yoga class is still a go though!), as sunlight can oxidize the rubber material of the B MAT therefore compromising its grippiness and colour. This can occur directly if left outside in the sun OR indirectly through car/home/studio windows. So yes, you can leave your mat outside to dry. But no, do not leave it outside to dry directly in the sun.
  • There is a yellowish tinge or soapy suds in the runoff water when cleaning my mat, is this normal?

    It's competely normal to see runoff water being a tinge off-colour and/or some soapy suds coming out of your mat when washing. Proceed to wash and dry as directed. These are just components of the interior layers coming forth in the washing process due to being fully saturated.
  • How do I roll and store my B-Mat?

    When your B MAT is not in use, it should be stored indoors, away from direct sunlight. Direct sun exposure to your B MAT can cause UV damage and dehydration. Your B MAT can be used outdoors, however it should never be left in direct sunlight for an extended period of time. When rolling your B MAT for storage, please roll it with the logo facing the outward. This will prevent creasing in your B MAT.
  • What are the various B-Mat specs?

    All B MATs are 26" across and either 71" (regular length) or 85" (long length) long. For weights and thicknesses, see the specs section of the various product pages.
  • Where are B-Mats made?

    Your favourite supper grippy mat is made in Spain!
  • What is the lifespan of a B-Mat?

    This is dependent on a number of things. 1) How often you practice. 2) Your style of practice. 3) How you care for your mat. Our mats are made of high quality ingredients and constructed to withstand heat, sweat, and a vigerous vigerous vinyasa flow, several times a week for several years. If you clean your mat gently after each class are store it away from sunlight between practices you will be able to extend the life of your mat for 3+ years.
  • What are B-Mats made out of?

    Our mats are 100% rubber (both natural and synthetic). Natural rubber is inherently super grippy and antimicrobial in nature making it perfect for a sweaty practice. The synthetic portion we use to increase the durability and longevity of the mat. This means you will have a mat that lasts longer and you won't have to replace as often (less waste), while having the peace of mind that the mat itself is still biodegradable over a long period of time.
  • I have a latex allergy, can I use a B-Mat?

    The latex component in our mats is deproteinized, meaning the the allergen is removed (hypoallergenic). That said, we like to be on the safe side so we still do not recommend our mat if you have a latex allergy.
  • Do you use azodicarbonamide in B-Mats?

    No, our mats are 100% azodicarbonamide free.
  • Do I need a towel on my mat in a hot class?

    The use of a towel in class is purely a personal preference. If you're worried about slipping, the B MAT's grippy texture keeps your asanas in place without a towel. Some yogis prefer adding a towel to their mat if they are prone to sweat A LOT or if they enjoy the added cushioning. Again, personal preference.
  • My mat is dusty, what should I do?

    Dust is totally normal when you first start using your new mat. The surface texture of our mats attract dust at first because of their grippy texture. The dust attraction will go away after you’ve used your mat for a few weeks – all the more reason to get your yoga on!
  • There is a nick on the edge of my mat, what should I do?

    Don’t worry, this is normal and will not lead to your mat deteriorating. Our mats are hand cut without big machinery which can lead to some imperfections along the edges.
  • My mat is slippery, what should I do?

    One of the best aspects of our mat is their extreme grippiness and lack of slippery surface. In some cases yogis find there is a period of 5 or 6 practices where they "break-in" the mat before they feel the full benefits and glory that is a B MAT! If you are experiencing a slippery mat over a longer period of time, we need more info to find out why, such as how it has been cleaned and cared for. Please email us at contact@byoganow.com and we’ll talk through this together. You could also try adding a hot yoga towel for an additional layer or absorbency and see if that makes a difference.
  • When will you be launching different colours?

    If you're interested in a particular colour mat feel free to leave us this feedback on social media or email us with requests. We'll let our product development team know what you yogis are looking for.
  • How do I know which thickness mat I need?

    Check out the product descriptions on the shop area of our website to see the benefits of each thickenss of mat.
  • Is there a smell to B-Mats?

    B Yoga greatly prides ourselves in not using harsh chemicals, finishes or sealents on our mats. With that said any smell omitted from our mats is going to be the natural rubber scent which is inherent to the material used to make up the mat. This natural rubber scent is most apparent (but still fairly mild) first out of packaging but will dissipate with time and increased air exposure.
  • The outermost part of my rolled up mat looks lighter in colour than the rest when I unroll it. What should I do?

    Not to worry. This colouring is just this area of your mat exhibiting dryness. It is the only area of the mat directly being exposed to air when rolled so this only makes sense (especially if you are in a dry environment) but dont worry it doesn't effect the functionality of your mat. Spray some water on this area and/or bring into a humid environment (ie: steamy bathroom or hot yoga room) and continue use. This area of the mat should rehydrate with no problem. Also, try rolling your mat from alternating ends each time you use it to avoid this.
  • How do I use all these props? Do I need all of them as a beginner?

    Head to each product's product page to read up on the uses of each product. You can also find specs and details! You definitely do not need ALL the props as a beginner but they will each have their own benefits so take the time to learn about the various props and if you think they will benefit you. Still have questions? Email us at contact@byoganow.com and ask one of our staff, we all have a love for our yoga practice and should be able to help you out!
  • How do I clean my cork products?

    The great thing about cork is that the natural material is inherently antimicrobial which means it is fairly low maintenance. If you want to clean your cork products you can try a natural antimicrobial spray (like the B CLEAN) and wipe, or you can place your cork product in a ziplock bag with some baking soda and place the bag in the freezer overnight. Just like that, fresh cork props.
  • How do I know my size?

    All our products are industry standard sizing. That said, all our styles are of a "relaxed fit" nature so when in doubt, size up!
  • Will my bolster / mod cushion / zabuton feel just as amazing as my Halfmoon one? Are they made the same?

    You got it! Our manufacturing facility in Burnaby, Canada makes all our soft goods for the Halfmoon Soft Goods and the B CALM Soft Goods! This means that you have 30 years of long standing quality behind BOTH brands goods. Check out the product pages for variances in details, embellishments and textiles between brands.
  • Do I wash my B Calm products?

    We encourage you to head to the product page of the product in question and read up on it's care instructions! When in doubt, hand wash in cold water and hang dry. If you still have questions, email us.
  • What size does the phone pocket accommodate for?
