The Importance of Finding A Quality Yoga Mat

When you practice yoga, one of the most important purchases is your yoga mat.  You want to make sure the mat is the right one for your particular style of yoga and which feels comfortable.  A high quality yoga mat is not only important for your practice, but can even keep you safer in the long run.

Because of the increasing popularity of yoga, there are many yoga mats available that are durable and are made from biodegradable materials that aren’t toxic. 

Plastic Mats Are Cheaper And Have Toxic Materials

The older, plastic mats that used to be so popular are less favorable today because the cheaper mats are not bio-degradable.  But, be wary of any synthetic, plastic mat because half of the mats available today, at least the less expensive ones, are made with PVC. 

PVC mats can last longer but they’re made with toxic materials.  The last thing you want when you practice yoga is to have toxic chemicals all over your body.  Further, these mats are not biodegradable and are impossible to recycle.

Natural Rubber Yoga Mats Are Firm and Flexible

There are also rubber yoga mats available, natural and synthetic, that can be appealing to many yoga practitioners.Rubber mats offer a lot of grip and are very flexible.  However, synthetic mats can wear down fairly easily and get damaged from heat.

Natural rubber is biodegradable and can be reused more readily. Synthetic rubbers, on the other hand, are not biodegradable and are harder to recycle.  Therefore, if you decide to buy a rubber mat, make sure to buy the natural kind that is bio-degradable and better for your body.

Eco-friendly mats are better for your body and the environment.

The best mats that are offered today are the eco-friendly brands. They are not only better for the environment, but better for your body.  Eco-friendly mats are all made from biodegradable materials that are not toxic for your body and much better for the environment.

Eco-friendly mats come in cotton, jute, cork and many other materials that are comfortable and can meet your yoga style.  Most of these mat types will provide you with the right grip that’s helpful for your balance in all types of yoga practices.

Most of the eco-friendly mats are thicker which can help prevent you from getting injured during more strenuous types of yoga.  Depending on your yoga type, you can find an eco-friendly mat that works best for you.


There are many different yoga mats that are eco-friendly and can work with your style of yoga.  They are better for the environment and won’t leave any toxic materials on your body.
