Which yoga mat should I choose?

Whether you are new to yoga or looking to upgrade your old yoga mat, there are several things to consider when choosing the right yoga mat.

There are basically two categories of yoga mats. There are either yoga mats made of natural rubber or yoga mats made of PVC.

Natural rubber yoga mats with super grip for dynamic yoga

Yoga mats made of natural rubber are distinguished by having a very good grip, even if you sweat a little during your training. They are really good for dynamic forms of yoga such as Ashtanga Yoga or Vinyasa. The natural rubber mats are environmentally friendly and made from a degradable rubber material. However, this means that there may be traces of latex, so if you have a strong latex allergy you should not choose a natural rubber mat. At goyogi.dk we sell natural rubber mats from Manduka ,Liforme and lululemon .

Yoga mats for hot yoga and bikram yoga

If you do either hot yoga or bikram yoga where you sweat so much that you use a hot yoga towel on top of your yoga mat, we recommend you choose the Manduka PRO or PROlite mats. They are made of PVC, which is a closed-cell material so that sweat and bacteria do not penetrate into the mats. They have really good support and a lifetime warranty. They are also 100% latex free.

Good support for Yin Yoga or meditation

If you practice Yin yoga or more meditative forms of yoga, we recommend either the yoga mats from Moonchild Yoga Wear or the PRO or PROlite yoga mats from Manduka. The mats from Manduka are also very good for Hatha Yoga. They provide really good support for joints and muscles and have a grip that just gets better and better the more you use them. If you sweat during your workout, these mats can get a little slippery.
