About the MagicMat Train
All aboard the yoga train! This is the very first yoga mat I ever created! I was sitting at the kitchen table thinking up a theme for my next class. The Little Engine that Could popped into my head. And so did the idea to make a GIANT TRAIN out of yoga mats so all the little yogis could travel together! It’s my most popular mat by far!!
My classes clamor to earn a ticket to chuga-chuga- chuga choo-choo down the track! Along with asana, yogis can practice gross motor skills using the 12 foot train track i created out of the yoga mat scraps! Don’t be surprised, but grown-ups always want to come along for the ride!
The MagicMat Train is handmade with love on my living room floor! The full train with box cars measures approximately 17 feet long. Box cars are 28 inches from top to bottom and box car wheels are 17 inches in diameter. Train includes one red engine, 3 train-engine wheels, 2 box cars, 8 box car wheels, 8 box car windows, and two couplers. Also included is a 12 foot by 20 inch train track.

I USE RECYCLED YOGA MATS and CREATE BY HAND WITH LOVE.
Yoga mats have large pieces that go together simply. In class we work together to create the giant train which promotes community, creativity, problem solving, and teamwork.
