The Scorpion mat is designed to be used in all directions.
It is symmetrical left to right, asymmetrical top to bottom.
Start by SEEING your alignment. Then, test yourself. Orient in a different direction on the mat and FEEL your alignment.
Use the mat to help you observe the strength + flexibility differences in your body from one side to the other. Measure and witness the changes in your body over time.
More than meets the eye...
The use of positive and negative space keeps the mind engaged with the reference points and interpolating lines + angles.
Labels + language...
Standard terms are given to each element in the design allowing instructors and practitioners to find common language while using the mat.
