Brshi — BHU YOGA Natural Darbha Kusha Grass Yoga Mat, Meditation Mat with anti-skid Rubberised Backing

Sold Out

Reconnect with the earth with the Brshi from Bhu Yoga — a natural handwoven darbha grass yoga mat. Darbha grass, a sacred grass in India, has been the material of choice for ancient ascetics, sages, and the earliest yogis for their dhyana meditation and yogic practice.

With its natural earthy texture and fragrance, the Brshi helps you travel back to the time of the earliest yogis. Darbha grass, also known as Kusa or Kusha grass is a sacred grass for many beliefs that originated in the Indian subcontinent. For thousands of years, from the time of the Vedas and Buddha, darbha grass has been used to make "Brshis", literally meaning, "a roll of twisted grass made as a seat or cushion for religious students and ascetics" in Sanskrit.

The sacred Darbha grass aka Kusha grass is mentioned in the Vedas as well as early Buddhist accounts. For its Ayurvedic properties, it has been the material of choice for yogis, gurus, sages, and priests for thousands of years and to this day.


72 inches long x 26 inches wide (6 feet x 2 ft 2 inches)

Why should you choose the Brshi natural darbha grass yoga mat:

  • It’s what the earliest yogis used.
  • You’ll enjoy the tactile response and the fragrance of the sacred darbha grass.
  • It’s 100% bio-degradable and a sustainable choice.
  • You’ll be supporting traditional handloom weavers of rural India. Our mats are not mass-produced in factories.
  • It grips — natural rubber latex is applied to the back helping the yoga mat grip to indoor surfaces
  • It’s light-weight — a perfect travel mat
  • It comes with a complimentary sling mat carrier

The Brshi Mat is ideal as a:

  • Hatha yoga mat (choose one of our other mats for Vinyasa Yoga)
  • Meditation mat
  • Prayer mat or pooja mat
  • Turf mat

Usage & Care Instructions:

  • Check the side of the yoga mat before laying it on the floor. The naturally rubberised back looks a bit darker than the top surface — this should go on the bottom. If you feel your mat slips on the floor, it’s likely laid out upside down so try flipping it over.
  • Wipe the mat with a moist towel and let it air dry
