Best Yoga Mats Online

Let me share a little story, the first mat I ever bought was from a discount outlet store near my home. I thought, what a deal because it was under $10. This was years ago. I had not yet understood the concept of you get what you pay for. Now, I do my research and buy yoga mats online.

You get what I am saying, this is why you will find this blog useful as I did the research for you. So, little did I know that with every Sun Salutation yoga move I made… little particles of my mat were falling apart. I was horrified and quite embarrassed that other classmates can see all the little pieces that fell on the floor.

Was I a Yogi? Or More Like a Surfer

Let’s talk about hot yoga so in a class like this or power yoga be prepared to sweat a lot. As I slipped around on my discount mat and could not hold a strong down dog. I made a decision to invest in myself and get good quality yoga mats online worthy of me.

Your yoga practice is not about yoga gear, but about the person, you become when you are on it. However, having a good yoga mat will keep you motivated to stay on the mat. That way you can reap the benefits your yoga practice can offer on and off the mat.

Let’s Break It Down

This break down will consist of 18 of the best yoga mats online. You will see the details, pros, cons and what others are saying. These are not in any particular order. Because it really depends on what you need from a yoga mat. A great yoga mat online can be expensive. Therefore, I also included budget friendly under $30 yoga mats. I’ve got you covered 😉
