Namaste and Slay : Choosing The Right Yoga Mat

a guide to choosing the right yoga mat bajezen.blog

 

Any yoga practitioner whether they are a beginner or a seasoned professional needs a yoga mat. I have already mentioned the numerous benefits of yoga in my previous post: Yoga Is for Everyone. Have I  convinced you ? 

 

 I have purchased a few mats in the past; none of which I was particularly in love with. I decided it was time for a change and did some research. I never knew there were so many options out there.  Investing in the right yoga mat will enhance your yoga practice ten fold. Everyone has their own style and unique flair so you definitely want to choose the mat that will cater to your specific needs. Did you know that there are different mats for hot yoga versus regular yoga?

Here are a Few Factors To Consider When Choosing A Mat 

Thickness 

Durability 

Your Type Of Practice 

Price 

Eco-friendliness  

 

When making a purchase deciding which product to choose is always one of the most difficult factors.

  1. I wish you posted this last year.
    I did get a mat for myself…which is still almost unused as i dont know how to do yoga.
    Ita stuffed with blankets in a closet. I will take it out tomorow and check how good/bad it is…maybe i will get motivated to use it finally.

    • I was not blogging last year 🙂 Thanks for reading. The one I have now I sweat and slip all over the place. It is currently on my wardrobe catching dust. Like you I have to get motivated to use it my exercise is running up and down with my daughter .

  2. I have friends who practice Bikram Yoga. That’s too much heat for me. I already have Hot Flashes and I can’t see myself getting into pretzel positions
    Years ago when I was younger and more flexible I spent a few days at a health spa and took some yoga classes. Maybe one day I’ll try again. Perhaps yoga classes will help ease my painful arthritis joints. I also notice that my arthritis does not bother me when I’m dancing.

    • Any yoga I do here is hot yoga lol . I sweat so much . The movement defintely helps . I keep it simple I can’t bend like a pretzel or headstand . I do not think I want to lol

  3. There’s no yoga place in my city but I was really tempted to purchase. I love beautiful stuff; and honestly I don’t think many people know that you have to consider these qualities when buying a mat

    My gym has yoga classes that I’ve always wanted to take!

    Whenever I make the step forward to actually do it (as I’m a bit nervous haha), then I will definitely refer back to this post because I wanna make sure I come prepared!

    Thank you for sharing 🙂
