The travel yoga mats are the thinnest mats and mainly designed for travel. These yoga mats are lighter and thinner than the standard 3 - 4 mm mat, but are still capable of providing sufficient strength and support. The lightweight is ideal for carrying.

A yoga mat of 4 mm thickness is the most used yoga mat and has a perfect combination of grip, comfort, damping and weight. If you often do yoga, the 4 mm mats are very suitable because they offer sufficient damping for your wrists and knees. In terms of grip, this mat is also very nice, hands and feet do not slip away during the different yoga postures. Moreover, these mats are light in weight and thin enough to take every day to the yoga studio.
