Your yoga mat will quickly become your « home », the place where you will feel good, your partner for (almost) every day. That's why making the good choice is very important!
The first virtue of a quality yoga mat is to keep you stable and anchored to the ground, but for each person the needs can be different. Here are the 5 important criteria to take into consideration:
If you like balance postures, fast flows where joints are not too stressed, a thin mat (3 mm) will suit you perfectly: it will allow you to feel connected to the ground and very stable.
Finally, if you want a mat that you can lay over the mats offered in the studio or if you want to be able to fold it, choose a very thin mat (1 mm).
The material used for your yoga mat will determine its durability and feel.
If you want to take it with you everywhere, you will need either a PVC belt, quite light and thick (Soft Range), or a very thin, foldable and very light belt (Travel Range).
Don't choose the same mat if you do yoga once every two weeks or every day! In the second case, it is important to practice on a more durable and resistant material (Intense and Pro ranges).
It's finally the easiest thing to do ! Now...
Choose a design that inspires and pleases you. This will facilitate your concentration and help you to let go, to escape.
A nice mat always makes the practice more pleasant and helps to be more regular and motivated.
