Yoga Mats

by 97495429 July 19, 2012

To all of you Yogis out there: I need your help. I'm looking to buy a new yoga mat and I can't decide which to go with. My trusty mat I picked up for $5 is no longer serving its purpose. I've heard many amazing things about Lululemon's "the mat," but I'm not sure if I want to shell out $68. I've also been considering Gaiam's reasonably priced and well rated "Prosperity Mat" for $20, and their rubber mat in black for $40.

My dream mat will be ... 
+ Sticky/grippy enough to last through sweaty Vinyasa practice. I am over sliding around in downward dog.
+ Light enough to tote on the subway when I head to class, but not too thin.
+ Have color options, although I think I'm leaning towards black or gray. I know, it sounds picky, but it's important to me!
+ High quality. I don't want to pay for an inexpensive yoga mat only to have it wear out after a few uses.

I've realized that having a yoga mat that performs is an important part of an enjoyable practice. What is your favorite mat or brand? Do I splurge or are the lower priced options just as great? Any advice is truly appreciated!

P.S. Have you seen Lululemon's "Sh*t Yogis Say?" It's hilarious.

Thanks, Jess! I'm definitely leaning towards one of the Gaiam mats so that's so great to hear! xx

I have a Gaiam mat similar to the prosperity one and have been using it for a few years now (though I don't go to yoga all that frequently…). I highly recommend it, and I prefer vinyasa and ashtanga yoga over all others. I haven't had any issues with it!Jess // Curating Style
