Feeling fed up with a worn out yoga mat?
Maybe you’ve tried (and ditched) several yoga mats already. When yoga mat woes have you down, it’s time to replace a flimsy mat with one that is expertly crafted.
There are so many yoga mats to choose from... Is it possible to confidently pick one that has guaranteed quality?
Imagine having the one yoga mat that does it all:
We rigorously rated our best yoga mats for 2017 based on 10 important questions…
These professional mats are extra long and thick compared to standard mats. So, if you’re tall (or tend to move around a lot) this mat is perfect.
The base is thickly lined, and won’t slide around on the floor.
Mat size: 72" x 24" x 5mm thickness
The texture of these mats are surreal. On first impression, it’s shocking how soft the microfiber surface is to touch. Caution - you might start to snuggling with your mat in class!
There’s no need to line these mats with a towel because your grip actually improves as you sweat.
The no-slip, ultra-absorbent surface is engineered to maximize traction, whether you’re practicing slow and steady or jamming with hot yoga.
You might imagine my horror when I spilled a post-yoga smoothie all over my mat.
My brain yelled at me:
No!!! I’ll never get that out!
Surprisingly, simply wiping the mat down with a damp cloth and mild soap totally cleaned the mess. Not a stain was left!
A special sublimation dye printing process is used to ensure that the design will never fade, even with lots of use.
The base of this yoga mat is made of 100% natural rubber.
Plus, there is absolutely no harmful, synthetic PVC.

This mat is made with natural rubber, which is recyclable, renewable, and sustainably resourced.
Fresh from the package, the mat smelled minimally of the plastic liner. This smell went away within a couple of hours of being opened.
With long-term use, the mat stays fresh. You won’t hesitate to rest your face on this non-stinky (and very soft) yoga mat!
Although these mats are very sturdy, they weigh just 5 pounds each.
They’re especially easy to carry in a great, 100% natural cotton canvas mat bag.
All mats in the Yoga Mats for the Devoted collection are inspired by yogis and designed by independent artists.
With so many options and colors to choose from it’s possible to choose a unique mat that expresses your creative side.
A portion of each mat sale goes back to the indie artist and yogi team that designed it.

Yoga has traditionally been seen as a path to heightened consciousness and mindfulness, though this aspect is increasingly less emphasized in the West. The practice facilitates a profound awareness of how body, mind, and spirit are linked and how each individual is connected to all life on the planet.
In a world dominated by nonstop activity and the proliferation of high-tech devices, yoga is one of the few popular endeavors that require only a sticky mat and a commitment to practice. No technology is needed.
As a yoga practitioner, you know that yoga practice is sometimes the only time of day when someone truly unplugs, enters a state of calm, moves their body, and simply breathes. As a yoga teacher, you have the honor and privilege of guiding people through that process — a process that is sometimes delightful and often challenging, but always rewarding.
Teaching yoga is often thought of as a lifestyle business. This means that you have chosen a pastime that is central to your own lifestyle and are taking the chance that you can create a career, or supplement other income, by devoting yourself to it.
We are called to teach because we love any excuse to get on our yoga mats, cherish watching our students develop, and likely have a pronounced aversion to cubicle life, endless meetings, and uncomfortable shoes!
