Choose the right mat!

Before you buy your yoga mat there are a few things you might want to consider. For example, what type of yoga do you want to practice? If you do intensive yoga you need a mat with a lot of grip, so look for a mat with a lot of texture.

There’s different kinds of thickness to choose from as well. Don’t automatically think that thicker is better. It may become way to soft, especially when you want to hold your poses for a longer amount of time. However, they might be more comfortable for back-exercises.

If your just starting out and you’re not quit sure yet, it might be the best idea to start with a 3 mm yoga mat for overall stability and support.

Oh, and if you’re a bit taller then average, off course there are extra long yoga mats available as well! 🙂

Compare different materials.

There are different types of materials to choose from in a yoga mat. They also differ in thickness and traction. A lot of yoga mats are made from either PVC, natural rubber, cork or cotton. Rubber mats usually have jute and cotton in them which makes them more eco-friendly. PVC mats are usually used by beginners.

PVC mats do tend to get a little slippery. So, If you tend to sweat a lot or you want to do a lot of hot and intense yoga it may be good to use a cotton, or natural rubber yoga mat. You can also put a regular towel over your yoga mat.

Natural rubber mats tend to have really good grip.

Mats and Materials:

1. Natural Rubber Yoga Mat


2. PVC Yoga Mat


3. TPE Yoga Mat

4. Cork Yoga Mat

This is a great choice for your yoga mat as it’s 100% environment-friendly, safe to use and very lightweight! Although you don’t see to many yogi actually using them they are a great choice to travel with.

Cork is made from tree bark which naturally grows back after its clipped from the trees. This way no new trees have to be planted!

After more and more use, this mat will get more grip because of your own perspiration. A cork mat is actually very suitable for all the yoga styles you can think of; from Hatha to Vinyasa!

One more amazing detail: This mat cleans itself! Yes, that’s right. With this material, bacteria don’t stand a chance. You should absolutely not wash it with chemicals.  

5. Jute Yoga Mat

Jute mats are a lot safer than most of the PVC mats and also better for the environment. Organic jute is 100% recyclable, natural and eco-friendly! They are also very lightweight and easy to clean.

Because jute is a very natural material you might have to get used to it at first. It is more raw than other types of mats and therefore feels different then other, smoother, mats. But because of the natural look it will be a real eye-catcher!

6. Cotton Yoga Mat

Cotton mats are one of the most environment-friendly mats available. They have a very soft texture.

This material absorbs moisture and therefore has great grip. It is well used for yoga styles like: Hatha, Ashtanga, and hot yoga.  

In conclusion: If eco- and environment-friendly is important to you, buy a natural rubber or TPE mat. If you prefer to have the best grip, choose PVC or natural rubber. Would you like something different for a change, try cork or cotton!
