It is a mat made with resistant rubber specially designed to practice yoga which measures 8mm thick and 183cm x 61cm. Easy to roll and transport (it comes with a rope to tie it).
It has a non-slip side that is the one that must be in contact with the ground. It is very important that, when it comes to choosing the yoga mat, it must have a good adherence to the ground, since that will prevent it from slipping, which will result in a bad execution of the exercises, discomfort, and even injury.
It has the recommended thickness for yoga exercises, 8mm. This is a very important factor, since an excess or lack of density/thickness can complicate the execution of some exercises.
Its dimensions are also ideal to practice yoga. When it comes to choosing a yoga mat, you must take into account its length and width regarding your own measures. You must be able to fit while lying down in the mat. You must choose the one that better suits you according to your size.
Another aspect that must be kept into account when choosing your yoga mat is transport. Not all mats can be kept in the same way or are not as comfortable to transport.
If you need to take your mat with you daily to the gym, you must look for one that is light, easy to roll, and which also has a rope or some kind of grip so that moving it is more comfortable.
You must also keep in mind the kind of yoga that you are going to practice. Normally, if you are going to practice soft yoga (for example Hatha, Yin, Nidra, relaxation...) you must look for comfort and the protection of our joints and ankles and also for inverted position (plough, candle...) for which you need to be extremely careful with your neck and cervical spine.
In this case, you must choose a mat that measures between 5 and 8mm thick. If on the contrary, you are going to carry out dynamic yoga (Ashtanga, Vinyasya, Hot yoga...) where most of the positions are standing and where you will need to use our balance, you must look always value stability, which is the reason why a mat of 3-5mm thick is recommended.
