Yoga Life, HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT YOGA MAT

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT YOGA MAT

all of us know the importance of yoga very well. Today “asana” has become synonymous with “yoga” .  In the yogic view, the body is a temple of spirit, the care of which is an important stage of our spiritual growth . 

(Yoga Life, Why we need asana in yoga Practice)


Yoga asanas is all about your posture,  If you want to attain maximum benefit from yoga, you must  ensure that your posture is right. 

while you are doing yoga asanas lying down on your back, a  yoga mat is very helpful. If you're new to yoga you should be looking more at basic what we should look in yoga mat


 1.Material -The material of the yoga mat is important when you pick a mat. There are some options you are going to have when you go out in the market to buy a mat for your yoga. PVC- the most commonly used materials used to make basic, cheap yoga mats  but It is neither good for you nor the environment since it is so hard to recycle . 
rubber mat - Rubber mats are a better choice. Made of natural rubber, 

cotton mat-These are the most natural of all the mats available in the market, and even though they soak up the sweat, they are easily washable. They are soft and give more grip 

You might consider jute, recycled or natural rubber, or even organic cotton when looking into the materials of your new mat. 

2.Thickness & Size-  A standard yoga mat is usually ⅛ inch( metric 4 mm) thick but ⅛ inch mat may be too thin for you when you’re in certain poses and you’re doing your very best to focus on the breathing Get the ¼ inch (metric 6 mm) mat. It’s thicker, so it will provide more support for your joints 
Your mat should be long enough for your entire body when you lie down Standard yoga mats are about 68 inches long. If you’re taller, make sure to get an extra long yoga mat. 

3.Style & Texture - yoga mats are available in different color and prints get your favorite color or print your yoga mat can inspire you to practice more. You’ll look at it and it will remind you of your commitment Stickiness 

4.Stickiness. Why it's important: A sticky yoga mat keeps you from sliding all over the place and helps you maintain your alignment as you move from one pose to another, 

5.Sustainability & Price- Price is also an important consideration when you buy your mat Look into the price But more cheap mats don’t have a long life, and will tend to wear out fast Look out for some good brands that guarantee quality products.

if you take away anything at all from this guide, know that if you feel comfortable on your yoga mat, little else matters. Buying a yoga mat isn't about finding the most expensive or nicest looking one, but instead finding one that can help you practice yoga safely and properly. and it is applicable for all kind of yoga whether it is  power yoga, hatha yoga, astang yoga, vinayas yoga or any other kind of yoga
