What is a Yurt?
The Pacific Yurt is a modern adaptation of the ancient shelter used by Central Asian nomads for centuries. The compact shape of the yurt and combination of lightweight members in tension and compression mean that the structure is highly efficient in maximizing strength while minimizing the use of materials.

The Pacific Yurt is a lightweight, low-cost, state-of-the-art version that retains the sense of wholeness of the ancient form while delivering the structural integrity, longevity and low maintenance demanded by modern users.

Though generally classified as a tent, the yurt is much stronger and weathertight. The Pacific Yurt is a circular structure that consists of a durable fabric cover, tension band and a wood frame that includes a lattice wall, radial rafters, central compression ring and a framed door.

“There aren’t many places where you can sleep this comfortably and still see the stars.”
James H., Wyoming

In the last years Yurta is used for class of yoga and meditation becuase there are the sounds of nature that accompany the deep sleep of our guests, who sometimes are surprised how the lullaby of the night is even more effective than complete silence.

That’s why we decisso to practice yoga in a space so deeply and traditionally used in other cultures.
See you there!

And the only accessory that we use during the hours of practice weekly or daily, and we can consider it an investment: it should not hinder us, but should give us support for a correct practice.

One of the most important things to consider is the thickness, because especially in the practice of Ashtanga yoga is very solicit joints. The thickness must be sufficient to absorb the impact of knees and elbows in asanas and must have a good degree of absorption and traction sweat, so that your back, shoulders and knees can not scroll increasing effort to avoid slipping .

Maintaining the cleanliness of the mat will be crucial, because the sweat and transportation will be full of microbes, so we should try to do so frequently. So in choosing the yoga mat, we should ensure that resist to frequent washing and to stop us from slipping between asanas and another.

The price of a good mat can be very variable: we must consider that more hours of practice we perform, and we must have more of a yoga mat good quality! Most yoga practitioners extends care they have for themselves and their surroundings. There are yoga mats with environmental awareness available.

Finally to keep our mat in good condition we should also think about the transport it in a yoga-bag, suitable for measurement of our mat (see online shop).
