I love my Root Board and was very pleased to get the Root Bag to help protect it, but I do wish that the bag had a strap of some kind. It's a little hard to carry the board when it's in the bag, and I like to keep my board protected during transport.
Sabrina- Thank you for the review. We appreciate you writing. And yes, the strap would be a nice addition to the bag. We are designing such a product and hope to have it on the site in the coming months.
I wanted something like this for a long time. I found DIY versions on Pinterest of a yoga board and almost made one. I finally found The Root Board, and although they offer DIY instructions, I didn’t feel like tackling that. I practice in rooms with plush carpet, and this is the perfect solution. I purchased the clips to help secure the pieces together. I’m amazed at how stable the surface is and the quality is wonderful.
I practice on a carpeted area most often and using the root board has made all of the difference!! I love that it is two pieces so it can be easily stored also!
My current doctoral studies mean I spend much of my time seated, hunched over a computer or a notebook. The Root Board allows me to create an ergonomic environment where ever I find myself, and to assume multiple yoga or Pilates poses which support good posture and blood flow. I absolutely love it. It is also just a beautiful piece of craftsmanship!
The board is working fine, but it's not an ideal tool for Ashtanga. My heels extend beyond the end of the board when I'm in seated poses, and the holes in the sides of the boards are where I place my hands when transitioning out of seated poses. I find myself constantly having to move around on the board to avoid the crease in the middle, the carrying holes, or I need to move back so my heels don't fall off the end of the board. But it's still better than practicing on carpet!
What a difference! Practicing on carpet versus practicing on the Root Board on carpet...I feel stable and more confident. Balance poses come quicker and more stable. I'm happy I made the investment in myself and my practice. Thank you!
Greetings and thank you Brian for you customer service and quick responses. I am enjoying board as I build a consistent yoga practice. Namaste
I highly recommend a Root Board to anyone who needs a solid base for yoga. I use it every morning and also when I’m working out. It’s solid, strong and pretty :) I have found it was definitely worth the money. The room I do yoga in is carpeted, so my Root Board has been a life saver! I also loved my free little present :)
The Root Board is very beautiful and does the job of supporting my practice on carpet nicely. I know it will enjoy many years of use. However, a small piece of bamboo did crack off the first time I put the two halve together which was disappointing. I haven't noticed any other pieces cracking or falling off at the connection points since then.
I hated doing yoga in my kitchen but it was the only place with a hard floor. There I was next to the fridge and the stove ... the environment was not what I wanted for my practice. Now I do yoga in a beautiful room in my home that is peaceful and serene. It takes 2 seconds to set up my Root Board and it works perfectly. This is the best money I've spent in long time!
Anne-Marie - We love the short story. So wonderful that the Root Board is helping your practice. Love it!
Clips for the Root Board
So far I’ve use this board in four different places and have loved to have that solid surface of stability underneath me wherever I go. I don’t always have a yoga room to practice in and I travel a ton, especially in the outdoors! Whether it’s doing restorative, flowing, or even using it for a picnic, i love the is board!!
It looks like it will be a great yoga board. However the wood is split in the corners and one of the pieces is warped and does not fit well with the other. I’ve got pics if you’ll let me upload.
Whoa, that sounds like a defective board, Brian. I'll write to you privately so we can arrange a replacement Root Board to be sent to you. We're sorry for the inconvenience.
This is a game changer for your practice! Let’s you practice on carpet, grass, and other soft or uneven surfaces. LOVE my Root Board! Will be a fan for life!
Very kind of you, Elina. Have a fabulous day!
I recently renovated a spare room into a yoga sanctuary, and didn't want to incur additional expenses for replacing the carpet with hard wood floor. My root board is PERFECT and does exactly what I wanted it to do - which was to provide a stable, sturdy surface for me to practice on. 10/10 highly recommend!
It’s beautiful and works so well! Adds a nice base under my mat on a carpeted floor.
Awesome!!! Now I can safely do yoga in my home. Thank you!
This has made such a functional difference in my practice, I truly love it. On top of it being the support I needed it is beautiful and extremely well constructed. I love it.
It is a great addition to a yoga routine. I use it on a carpet and the stability is every bit as good as a studio floor. Love it.
The Root Board will forever be part of my home yoga studio and outdoor practice. I love the bamboo feel on my bare feet and the support it provides with or without in conjunction with a mat. And outside it instantly levels the ground for yoga practice the way it was meant to be - balanced. The Root Board is one of the greatest yoga inventions in the universe!
It was delivered quickly (within a week) and I was finally able to set it up on the newly laid sod. Quality looks and feels great. It’s beautiful. I was looking forward to my first yoga session surrounded by pine trees and a beautiful lake today and the board does not stay together. Going to through the yoga mat on top to see if that is the issue.
I see the clips are now available for sale. Ordering today to see if it will help.
I practice in a small rugged space and needed a flat surface for sliding handstand drills. This is the perfect fit, and it’s a two-piece thing so it stores nicely. The “puzzle” edge where the two pieces fit together pops up a little if the ground you’re practicing on is uneven. A way to keep that flatter during practice would have made this a 5 over a 4, but I’m extremely satisfied!
Juliana- Thanks so much for writing this review. So glad the Root Board is working for you. We have good news too regarding the side clips. They are now available in the store and as you can see (if you go to their product page) they are getting good reviews so we're hopeful they will work for you. Namaste!
One of the problems of my pandemic home practice is that the area I was able to practice only had rugs and for some reason just that little cushion made my practice at home just not that enjoyable. Enter The Root Board and now I am finally excited to practice at home and feel very supported during my practice. Completely worth the purchase for a much improved home practice.
