My Manduka Mat Broke My Toe

1 Comment

I think I actually broke my toe on a yoga mat. Not a brick, not a wall, not a 2×4, but a yoga mat. It takes a real spaz to pull off something like that.

The victim: my 2nd left distal phalange.

The culprit: the Eko mat.

The good news is that a somewhat broken toe doesn’t need much by way of treatment, and I can still hobble around and generally do yoga. The bad news is that vinyasas are out, as are Sun Sal B’s- – way too much maneuvering of the foot involved. And my whole lower body is achy from avoiding walking on my bad toe.

    I think I had read your post regarding your toe mishap earlier and didn’t react; sorry for your accident. I have the same mat and do find that I have to use the Eko towel over the mat, and wet it down well, to get the right movement. I only use the mat for the prasarittas and maybe the beginning of dropback practice. Otherwise, the mat has too much grip.

    I see you love squirrels too. I posted two pictures a friend took on a recent trip to the Grand Canyon.
