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!
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.

These clips gave me the added stability that I needed on my carpet. I am in love with this board but sometimes on my higher carpet I would feel just a slight bend in the middle where the two boards meet. Not anymore! Now I can practice yoga feeling like my mat is right on the studio floor. Absolutely no more bending in the board and the clips don’t get in the way of my practice at all! 100% recommend these clips!
I absolutely love this board! It feels like my mat is on a yoga studio floor instead of my carpet! If you’re on the fence about buying this, get off of it and just do it...you’ll love it!
This was an impulse buy after seeing a demo on Allison Ray Jeraci's IG page and was something I didn't even know I needed. It's perfect for those of us doing zoom yoga at home and missing the bamboo floors of our yoga studio for balance postures. Delivery was quick and the root board is as beautiful as it is functional.
I've been enjoying using the root board as a platform for my home practice in spite of having wood floors. The sunny blonde bamboo along with my essential oils sets the stage for my daily yoga experience and enhances a calming , meditative state. . I plan on bringing it outside as soon as the weather warms up a bit more. . . . Easily assembled but the tongue and groove lifts up a bit . Would like to find a remedy for that.
Thanks, Orly, we're grateful for the review. We're currently testing side clips that clip onto the two edges of the boards at the seam. We should have them available on the site within a week. Namaste. Brian
Since the pandemic hit in United States, I have been practicing yoga on carpet and although it was fun to challenge my balance at the beginning, later on it was not so fun for my joints. The Root Board was exactly what I needed to bring more stability and safety to my home yoga practice. I love the fact that is made with sustainable products, easy to carry and that it looks beautiful!
As advertised, very well made.
I started my yoga journey a few years ago and didn’t stick with it. As I started to connect more with yoga during quarantine and doing yoga at home. I had the problem of doing yoga on the carpet. I hated it! So I started thinking of ideas and how I could make my yoga journey better. I researched if there was any boards like what I wanted and almost gave up hope and thought I would be the one to start the business. Then I stumbled upon root board, and read over the website for days. I contemplated the whole purchase questioning whether it would be worth the purchase or if I would just somewhat like it enough to try a few times and stow away. Well I was wrong the craftsmanship on the board and everything is amazing. I opened up my package and felt like I had just purchased something designer for yoga. This far reached my expectations, and as I go further in my journey and my teacher training I hope to collaborate with rootboard for my needs and others around as well.
The root board has changed my practice. I feel more steady and grounded practicing at home on carpet with my board. It has improved my balance postures and my overall practice. I would highly recommend the root board!
I've been wanting to move my practice upstairs but its all carpet, and someone mentioned that there are boards you can use to mimic a floor. I did some research and found the Rootboard, read the reviews, and checked out their website. Something I REALLY loved was how they teach you how to make your own board if you don't want to buy one! I thought that was such a nice touch and made me instantly fall in love with them as a brand. I decided to purchase one and I'm SO happy I did! It is so sturdy, super high quality, and feels just like practicing on a floor! I've moved my yoga practice upstairs into this cozy little corner in a spare bedroom, and I can practice as much as I want without any wrist pain. Its life changing! I HIGHLY recommend it!

I absolutely LOVE my Root Board. My mat does not budge one bit - and the board looks so beautiful. It came well packaged in two pieces that fit together like a giant puzzle so “assembly” took all of 30 seconds. My apartment is carpeted throughout so the Root Board is a game changer for my yoga practice. Well worth the money.
The board is well construct and sturdy. Easy to set up and stow afterward. I have a deep pile carpet so it flexes a bit at the dove tails, but not so much with a good yoga mat. And I used the cardboard in which it was delivered to add a bit more stability. Much less an issue on short or medium pile carpet. Overall very happy. For me at least it is much much better than having the yoga mat directly on carpet.
I have been doing yoga on my thin carpet since quarantine began. I looked at options and am so happy I got the Bamboo Root Board. It is high quality and looks nice in my space. Shipping was fast it was easy to lay out and I am living in hand hold bliss with a hard surface under my mat again. Thank you!!!
The root board serves its purpose in quality. It will provide a stable platform to help perform yoga poses or any exercise for that matter. It is also a beautiful piece of furniture and very high quality.
This board was just the thing I needed to make me feel more in balance
First the Root Board is beautiful!. It immediately made me feel like my living room was in a yoga studio. What a difference to have a "floor" under me. Wrist tenderness is gone and my balance is better. When it creaks (very light) I envision I am on Maui in the Bamboo Forest. Why did I not buy one sooner?! Thank you for my wonderful board.
Since Covid I have been doing my Yoga and Barre classes virtual. The room I use is carpeted and I have been struggling with balance. I did an internet search and discovered there were yoga boards. I found several on line but opted for the root board over the molded plastic ones. I am so glad I did as it is beautiful. Even more it is making such a difference , no more struggling with balance poses (well no one than I did in studio) and it is way easier on my wrists. All I'm all I am so happy with this purchase..no regrets.
I ordered the Root Board because I decided to move my practice upstairs after several failed attempts at Zoom sessions. It felt like there was always some type of activity happening downstairs. I created my own space to record and teach but the upstairs is completely carpet. I started to feel the impacts of practicing on a soft surface on my wrists and ankles so I decided to do some research. After shopping around, I decided that the Root Board was, by far, my best choice. I love that it is heavy and sturdy. It really is comparable to practicing and teaching on a yoga studio floor. I would recommend as an addition to anyone who is looking to create their own space in their home.
Valarie - your story of the distractions downstairs is exactly what Kathy experienced! So glad the Root Board is working for you.
