Finding The Right Yoga Mat For You

Posted on: July 17th, 2010 by
Find A Yoga Mat That's Right For YouThere are so many yoga mats available today.  How do you choose the right yoga mat for you? Yoga mats can prevent injuries that can occur while practicing yoga.  The flooring is typically a slippery surface (e.g. wood floor) . Yoga Mats will cushion the floor and provide support, which is needed for improving balance and coordination and provide better overall health. Purchasing your own yoga mat will limit the exposure to bacteria and germs and you are only exposed to your own germs. You are responsible for your own mat and you can clean it with a disinfectant spray or yoga mat cleaning wipes anytime.

People want different things from their yoga mat.  Some people care mainly about the color, some want a thick yoga mat, while others prefer a thin mat and some want an extra long mat, while others want a shorter mat.  Most people want the mat to be non-slip or skid resistant (a sticky mat), while others don’t care because they are putting something (e.g. a yoga blanket or yoga towel) on top of the mat.  Determine what features are most important for you in a yoga mat before you begin your search.  A well chosen Yoga MAT will help you create a yoga space which is relaxing to you and your body.
