Which Yoga Mat Should I Buy?

As a yoga instructor I often have students who are new to yoga ask me which mat is the best. There are so many different options out there and it all depends on what is most important to you in a mat. Some mats are thinner making them lighter to carry but, hard on knees if you have bony or sensitive joints. One thing I look for in a mat is how sticky it is because, when I sweat my hands slip on most mats. However, if you are more of a restorative yogi this might not be something that’s important to you. There are also other qualities about mats that are important in our consumerism; things like Eco-friendliness, price, and design. I personally have the jade mat right now and love it! Luckily, we aren’t the only ones wanting to know how mats compare. Here’s a link to a comparison of eco-friendly, non toxic yoga mats.
