How To Choose The Best Yoga Mat

This is not going to be as complicated as choosing the best treadmill in Malaysia.

But it helps to be aware of the available options out there!

1. Where Are You Going To Use It?

Keep in mind of the location you will most likely be using your mat.

  • On the go (to your favorite gym?)
  • At home
  • Outdoors (park or beach)

It needs to be able to grip unto whatever surface you’re laying it on!

2. Material

Yoga mats come in many types of material:

  • Rubber
  • Jute
  • Cork
  • PVC foam – There are many other names for this. Nitrile rubber or NBR, synthetic rubber, vinyl, etc

Rubber, jute and cork are all environmentally-friendly options as long as the rest of the fitness mat is not made of synthetic material too. They are usually more expensive.

3. Dimensions

The average yoga mat dimensions are 68 x 24inches. Or 172 x 61cm. If you’re shorter than 6 feet, this size should be fine!

You may want to get a larger mat based on your workout routine, height and body size.

4. Thickness

There are mats that are 1mm thick. And others that are more than 8mm thick.

Thicker mats tend to provide more support for your joints. But this also depends on the material.

However:

If you want to be able to pack up the mat quickly, thick mats can be troublesome to roll back up.

And you may not be able to hold balancing poses as well on a plush mat!

5. Portability (Weight)

Some mats can weigh 2kg or more. You can treat that as bonus arm work out if you have to carry it around from your home to the gym frequently.

Though it’s probably best that you leave the heavier mats at home! As there are other mats that are made for travel!

6. Non-stick Surface

Perhaps the main reason for getting a yoga mat in the first place:

The top of the mat should not be sticky to the touch. Or get slippery when you start sweating!

While the base of the mat may be textured for additional grip.

7. Other Features

  • Durable
  • Quick-dry
  • Easy to clean
  • Odorless
  • Reversible
  • Eco-friendly
  • Guidelines on the mat

How To Maintain Your Yoga Mat

Daily use can wear out any mat fast! The way you store it matters too!

Here are some ways to keep your yoga mat clean and in tip top condition:

  • Follow the care instructions (if any)
  • Wipe the yoga mat down with a damp cloth (use water, a homemade baking soda solution or diluted vinegar) after every session
  • Let the mat fully dry before rolling it up
  • Once in a while, deep clean your mat by soaking it in a tub for at least 15 minutes
  • Avoid using alcohol on your mat – this can degrade the material
  • Do not store your mat where it will be exposed to sunlight
