The worst part of yoga isn’t practicing plank or pigeon pose—it’s rolling up your mat after all is said and done. That’s because, regardless of whether you’re a total newbie or a bonafide handstand queen, you’re still prone to coiling it too loosely to stash in your bag or accidentally unraveling the whole damn thing. There goes your zen!

Luckily, a gift from the yoga gods is here to make this ever-present annoyance completely disappear: The Backslash Fit self-rolling yoga mat. And, BTW, on Black Friday/Cyber Monday—November 23 through the 27—you can get it for 20 percent off on Amazon with the code 20HOLIDAYMAT. (We’re affiliated with Backslash Fit.)

Backslash Fit Smart Yoga Mat, BackslashFit.com $89.99

It’s designed to furl up perfectly—that is, evenly and with the just amount of tension—every damn time. Behold:

There she rolls!

How It’s Different

As if the roll-and-go trick isn’t enough, the mat is also made to remain in its tight little coil—no strap required—and balance upright on either end more confidently than you in tadasana, the pose in which you stand on both feet.

What’s more, it’s lightweight, extra cushy, has a durable surface, and is extra long so you never end up with a hand or foot on the floor. It also has a non-slip bottom so you can’t possibly slide the mat out of place.

Further proof the future is here: The mat includes an Amazon Alexa command that turns your device into a yoga teacher and talks you through a flow of the day from Women’s Health.
