9 awesome sites to buy yoga mats online
You don’t have to bend over backwards to look for the best places to buy a yoga mat.
A good mat is a must to guarantee a solid foundation on which you can safely practice yoga and its highly challenging poses. With so many types of mats out there varying in styles, thickness and material being sold in store and online, it can be quite a challenge to find the best one.
Yoga mat FAQs
Yoga mats can vary pretty widely in their thickness. The thinnest yoga mats tend to be around 4mm thick, this is perfect for optimum contact with the floor, grip and good balance. If you have sore or sensitive knees you might want to opt for something thicker, anything up to 6.5mm, but remember this may make challenging poses harder to balance in.
A yoga mat should ideally be long enough so that you can lie down flat (eg. in corpse pose) without any your body resting directly on the floor. The average yoga mat is around 182cm long.
The best way to clean your yoga mat is to use a solution of water and white vinegar. Mix 1 part vinegar with 20 parts water and wipe the whole mat.
There are a couple of ways to make your yoga mat less slippery. The more you use your mat the less slippery it will be, so make sure you thoroughly break it in and remember to use the same side every time you practice. You can also use a thin microfiber towel on your mat to help you grip, even if you’re sweating.
