Which yoga mat is right for you?

Updated: Sep 5, 2023

So recently i've been asked a lot "which yoga mat do you recommend?" Maybe this is due to the outbreak of coronavirus, who knows!


With the upcoming venture into hot yoga at the studio it's a great time to invest in your own yoga mat too.


But there's lots of mats out there so i thought i'd let you all know my top recommended mats which i have used, both currently & in the past!


Which yoga mat is the best?

Lululemon

Highly Recommend

Having previously worked for the company, I love Lululemon yoga mats! Made from natural rubber they are reversible, amazing grip & wear really well! Some lovely designs & colours too!

Available in different thicknesses and also available in a longer length for men!


They range from £48 upwards (travel mat) & the nearest store for us Lancashire based folk is the Manchester store in the city centre or the Trafford centre, where you'll be able to view the full range and give one a try or please feel free to have a go on mine!

Liforme

-Recommended

Now i haven't personally had one but i have many friends who do have one! Just like i love my Lululemon one they love their Liforme mat, slightly dearer, they start from £100!


They have alignment markers on the mat and come with a handy carry bag, which is a lovely added bonus. Amazing grip too and they have many different collections!

A selection of these mats are available to buy at the studio or online!


which yoga mat is the best?

Yoga Studio Yoga Mat

-Highly Recommended

At a cheaper and more affordable cost, the yoga studio yoga mat has an equally compatible grip & quality as the above mats plus you also get a carry strap included too!


It's what I currently practice on at the studio!


Made from natural rubber & they are available in different colours, They are available at the studio to buy for a worth while investment starting from £55!



Obviously mats are readily available from most places these days, tkmaxx being a hotspot, sports shops & even Aldi! However i have found, from past use, that these mats don't provide enough grip for me personally & they do tend to wear quite quickly! So if you are a keen yogi/ germ conscious/ practice hot yoga my advice would be to invest in one of the above mats!


Top Tip:

If you get a rubber mat, my advice would be to clean this down in the shower & air to dry! Essential oil heavily infused used sprays can prevent the mat from keeping its grip!

My mat spray in class is some disinfectant & water, perfect for plastic mats but I would use sparingly on rubber ones. Please double check with whatever brand you go with for the best advice!

(If you do attend my classes and are still happy just using my mats please feel reassured that my mats are deep cleaned on a regular basis and sprayed down after each class but will be a £1 to rent after the 23rd of August)


I hope you have found this helpful! And any further questions please feel free to ask.

I bought one of the yoga studio mats. I am very pleased with it. Good grip under foot. Thicker than my previous mat. The alignment line does help and I am surprised at how naturally I am in line with it. Reasonably priced. Easy to clean. The carry strap can double up as a yoga strap for those extra stretches.
