Yoga mats

No yoga practice is complete without a good yoga mat. Just like the many different yoga styles, yoga mats come in a range of choices. From extra thin to thick, from open cell structure to closed cell structure, normal grip or sticky grip, wide and long lengths, good yoga mats come in different types to suit the needs of every yoga practitioner.

Discover our yoga mats and their own unique qualities. Choose from professional yoga mats, standard yoga mats or ecological yoga mats. We have yoga mats for everyone. Thin, lightweight yoga mats are useful for travel, while thicker mats with extra grip are perfect for mild yoga or Pilates.

Thickness yoga mat

The thickness of your yoga mat sometimes differs per yoga style. When you practice many standing postures and balance exercises, a thinner mat is fine. This way you have more grip on the ground. When you make a lot of lying and sitting postures on the mat, a slightly thicker mat is fine. This prevents pain on your knees and spine. Yoga mats are available in thickness between 3 and 10 mm, the most common thickness is between 4 and 6 mm.

Yoga mats specifications

The material your yoga mat is made of dictates its texture, stickiness, eco-friendliness, and durability. Eco-friendly yoga mats are made of natural materials using environmentally friendly processes and are made of ingredients which are not harmful to humans or the environment. There are also synthetic yoga mats available that still contain harmful dyes and chemicals. Eco-friendly yoga mats do not contain such ingredients. The sustainability of a yoga mat is an important factor for many. Some yoga styles or techniques make different demands on a yoga mat. A more dense construction usually means that it is more durable. Certain yoga mats are more suitable for specific yoga styles.

Grip is also a very significant consideration. Some yoga styles require that the yoga practitioner poses for a prolonged period of time, therefore the grip of a yoga mat is of great importance. It is important that your hands and feet stay in place to ensure that you can support any pose with a good, solid base without slipping. For two reasons, the size and weight of a yoga mat is important. First, some people need an extra-long yoga mat because they are extremely long. Also the weight of the yoga mat can be an important consideration when you need to transport your mat to and from your yoga class.

The visual appearance or design of a yoga mat is a personal matter. Many people will make their choice because they enjoy what a yoga mat looks like. Some people like a vibrant colour or design, while others find bright colours or designs disturbing and prefer to choose a quieter and more subtle mat. Discover our yoga mat collection, we offer a wide range of colours, textures and printed designs to choose from.
