Whether you are in a Pilates Plank, or in a seated meditation, I have compiled a list of my favourite mats that will suit any level of practice.
The Ultimate Yoga Mat - Lifeforme
Lifeforme is my all time favourite yoga mat brand. I love the company's ethics, commitment to sustainability, and the quality of their products. The mat is durable, almost 4mm thick, and has the perfect grip. The “Align for me system on the mat” is a great navigational tool for your practice, and plus it looks cool too. The mats are pricey, but if you are using it on a regular basis, it is a great investment ( I have had mine for years). It weighs in at 2.5kgs, so I would not use it as a travel mat. They also have beautiful travel mats on their website.
An excellent All Rounder - Yogi Bare
Another one of my favourites, that is almost as good as the Lifeforme mat. Yogi bare mats are made with eco- conscious ethics, and they come in at a lower price point. Most of their mats are 2.5kgs, and the same thickness as Lifeforme coming in at 4mm. Great design, grip and also made with eco friendly materials.
Looking for for a thicker mat - Manduka Pro
Are you looking for a thicker mat for those boney joints? Then, look no further than the Manduka pro. Manuka is a popular brand, and all of their mats are durable, and will last you for years. This pro mat is a dense mat, with plenty of cushioning to support your joints. A Manduka mat, is a mat for life.
Dreamy Travel Mat - HolderEight
This brand stands out to me, as their beautiful prints bring joy to my practice. They are made with rubber and microfibre technology, so even though it is a thinner mat, Holdereight do not skimp on quality and grip. They are super light and foldable, and they look gorgeous anywhere in the world.
Best Budget Set - Mc Sport HIIT Yoga Kit
Looking for an entry level yoga kit? Look no further than MC Sport. This kit contains a yoga mat, a block and a belt to really help you to support and explore your practice. The kit also comes with a handy yoga mat carrier bag, to really complete the set.
