I was practicing on carpet - losing grip and wearing out my really nice mat. Now I don’t slip and have grip. Thanks Root Board 💕
So far I love it. Only complaint is I wish it was a tad bigger. I am a tall yogi 6’1. I can make it work but my extra large mats don’t fit. Excited to try it outside in the sand but it’s winter in Wisconsin. Holds up great on tbr carpet. It’s kinda nice to grip underneath the wood and find a bit of a deeper fold in certain asanas.
Thank you for the notes, Mark. We are hopeful that there is a longer version in our future. Stay tuned. Love the comment about gripping the board to gain deeper fold, too. Good luck, stay safe!
I moved into a new house in September and my Yoga practice has been struggling due to carpeting in my workout room. Also, planning to utilize this in my backyard which is all grass. Tried for the first time today... what do you know?!?.... I can balance again!! What a difference.... thank you!
The Root Board is a game changer for yoga practitioners who live in carpeted homes - so perfectly designed to be portable, lightweight and strong!
We see what you did there, haha. Thank you for your kudos, Peter.
The root board exceeded my expectations with its exceptional quality and impeccable finishing. It has become an essential foundation for my practice, providing a solid and reliable surface. While I rated it 4 stars due to the joint between the boards, I want to emphasize that the overall product is fantastic and greatly enhances my experience. It would be bonus if there were an option to purchase the root board without the joint for those who don’t need portability. Additionally, a customizable option based on customer requirement of dimensions would be a valuable addition. I look forward to any future improvements and appreciate the excellent work on the current root board.
I have exclusively practiced on carpet throughout my at home yoga journey. I always thought this was acceptable until the root board was suggested to me. Wow! What a difference maker! It provides a much more stable surface and I had no idea how much more improved my flows would be. My only feedback would be the connection between the two boards seems loose, so it doesn’t seem like one solid surface when you are using it. It buckles easily even with the side clamps if that makes sense. And my bones are getting used to using a more firm surface! But otherwise I highly recommend
The Root Board is amazing. I bought one for my wife, who loves yoga. I’ve tried it a few times and it is amazing how well it transforms any kind of practice that requires solid ground. I honestly didn’t know how much of a difference it would make from doing yoga on carpet. But it does. If you have a carpet then it is well worth getting. It will force you to align properly and as a result make you stronger.
Importantly the customer service is amazing, probably one of the best I’ve ever encountered. When I had a problem with the initial board that arrived, I received a reply within a day, and an offer of a replacement. Really understanding and clearly care that everyone using their products have an amazing experience.
This company is also community focussed — they even have a DIY instructions listed on their website on how you can make your own board from raw materials. The added time and quality of finished product for me made it worth the extra cost, over if I’d made one myself. So it might seem a lot on the surface but when you cost it out, it is actually well worth it. I’d recommend it to friends practicing yoga on carpets in a heartbeat.
Received my Root Board recently and just used it cause my weekly in studio class was cancelled. The board quality is excellent and looks good too. The combo of interlocking teeth on the 2 pieces w/the clips makes for a stable surface to practice on. Works great on my soft family room carpet. Worth the $ spent. Plus I bought it thru your site which is actually slightly less expensive than amazon. Thank you! Tim C
You are awesome, Tim. Thank you for taking the time to write and for the recommendation. Namaste
My Bamboo Root Board has given me a new home for my daily practice and I am so grateful🙏 The Board is perfect in design. It is fairly lightweight and the carefully designed handles make it so easy to set up and break down after my practice. I would recommend this board for anyone with a home practice🙏
So happy the Root Board is working out for you, Heather. We appreciate your business. Peace!
I am loving my board...I didn't know how I was going to manage yoga on the shagged carpet in my new rental, this solved my problem!
Love my Root Board it fits perfectly in my yoga/ meditation room also works perfect for my height of 5 feet 7 inches and weight of 135 pounds.
I was looking for a slim surface on which to be able to place my yoga mat. I have some hardwood floors, but they're in the dining room and not where I want to be doing yoga. I googled, was pleasantly surprised by the reviews/materials/price, and ordered. I have used it every day since getting it and love it. My only complaint is that sometimes if I stand at the connection joint, I notice it, but that cannot be helped so I am choosing to not dwell on this because I like that the item can be folded for storage/movement. Thanks for making a great product!
Kerry- thank you for the kudos. And yes, there are always tradeoffs when designing products and for us the two piece construction allows for easier transport and storage, but it comes at the price of some slight separation at the joint. Worth it in our opinion.
Again, thank you and for your contribution. Brian
I love my Root Board. A definite must have for any home practice with carpet. Feels just like the studio. Definitely recommend
The root board lets me practice in the privacy of my home despite it having a high pile carpet. It provides a solid, stable, and large surface where I can conduct a flow of any level without worrying the mat will collapse or slip. It's also very attractive and well built
I've been wanting to pick up a Root Board for an extremely long time, and I'm so glad I finally did!
Five stars, though I must admit, the boards are much heavier than I expected. (This makes sense though, since it needs to lay flat and securely without shifting.) Hauling them on a few-minute walk to the beach took more out of me than I expected; I hope that a good backpack/bag/strap situation is created eventually to help move the board to new places!
I splurged for my mother's day gift for myself, and I'm elated I did. Yoga outside is one of my favorite places to practice, but the frustration of the wonky ground made it less than ideal. My Root Board has held me up for 3 beautiful sessions in the grass and on the porch. I'm enjoying the stability so much I'll be using it in the basement on the gym-foam-floor.
It's a beautiful addition to my new mat and the start to my outdoor practice.
Louise Anne- We're so glad you are experiencing yoga in the wild as we have. We use our Root Boards in the backyard and the beach and it has been transformative. Namaste.
Arrived in perfect condition, beautiful, high-quality product, works great on my very soft exercise room carpet. I am very happy with this purchase.
Five stars for The Root Board. Beautiful, functional, crafted (and packaged) with a fastidious attention to detail.
I love the quality of the board’s wood—I know it’s going to last a long time and it makes me happy to know it’s sustainably made. The only thing is that I find the board to be very heavy and a little difficult to get the slats of the board to line up and click together (it’s a tight fit). Because of this I don’t take the board apart but just keep it together all the time, since I don’t want to deal with the hassle of assembly each time. I’m not sure it’s that easily transportable for me personally, but it gets the job done as far as having a wood surface to practice on instead of carpet, so I’m happy overall.
I purchased this to place on top of thick carpet which made balancing tough. It fits just wider than my mat and slightly shorter because I have a larger than standard mat and it's helped me regain my balance and confidence in my poses. It was easy to fit together and feels sturdy, would recommend to anyone who needs a good base under their mat.
This has changed my yoga practice at home. I did not realize how important it is to have a stable foundation until I felt the difference from practicing on carpet. Highly recommend!
When I moved to a house with plush carpet everywhere, I have been using that as an excuse to get lazy with my yoga practice. Since I’ve received the Root Board, I’ve been I looking forward to starting my day with a morning practice. It’s easy to set up and store away for small spaces.
My only regret is that I didn’t buy this sooner. Of the 3 years I’ve been practicing yoga, I’ve lived in a carpeted home for almost 2 years. I forgot how good it feels to practice on stable foundation. Thank you so much for creating this product. I’ve had it for almost a week and it’s rejuvenated my passion for yoga. I’ve doubled my at home practices. It’s completely transformed my experience. If you’re thinking about purchasing The Root Board, do it. It comes with the clips. You don’t have to buy them separately.
Miranda, it is reviews like yours that bring us the greatest joy. We experienced the same frustration practicing on carpet. So glad you found us and are benefiting from the Root Board! Namaste
Love my new Root Board. After practicing on carpet for the past 2 years it's nice to have a solid surface again. The board is beautiful and well made. Mine arrived damaged so definitely get the route protection.
100% recommend for a home practice where you don’t have a hard surface availed
