What Yoga Mat Thickness is Best; Is Thicker Better?
When shopping for the perfect yoga mat, thickness is an essential factor to take into consideration. Thickness is a trade off between cushioning, stability and portability. If you go too thin, it won't provide enough cushion and protection during more complicated movements; however, if your mat is thicker than 3mm then you may not get that same stability or connected feeling as with a thinner mat. Thickness also makes a significant difference to the weight of a mat, our thin, 1.5mm Travel Yoga Mats come in at 1.5kg, foldable and easy to take with you to the studio or on your next vacay! Our Luxury 3mm Yoga Mats are 2.2kg and can be rolled for storage and provide good stability and cushioning. For those looking for more cushioning our 5mm Mats are our thickest and also heaviest mats at 2.7kg!
Ultimately - it's all about what brings out YOUR best practice! Whether comfort or connection are most important to YOU when doing yoga... there'll be a perfect thickness mat!
What Are the Best Materials for Yoga Mats?
Not all Yoga Mats are created Equal! Look around at your next class and you'll find mats made from various materials:
PVC, PU or TPE
Natural Tree Rubber
Natural or organic cotton
Each material has pros and cons. Here at Luxya we strongly believe that natural rubber is the best, and safest material. Naturally non-slip, biodegrabable, recyclable and free from glues, silicone, phthalates, PVC or chlorine.
How to Clean, Wash & Disinfect a Yoga Mat?
As a yogi we all spend a lot of time on mats. Whether that's at home, at the studio or gym or if we're lucky outside in our local parks or even on the beach. The last thing we want to disrupt our flow is a dirty or worse smelly mat!
To keep your mat clean after a practice take a cloth and dampen it with water. You can use this to wipe off the majority of any dirt. Make sure to clean both sides of your yoga mat. For a deeper clean you can create your own Yoga Mat Cleaning Spray. Make sure you dry your Yoga Mat thoroughly before rolling and storing and never dry your mat direct sun!
Can You Do Yoga Without a Yoga Mat?
Absolutely! Yoga sans mat is totally doable, but a yoga-specific mat will definitely enhance your practice. It's great for beginners - a quality yoga mat will give you that extra oomph of support as you get used to the movements and poses!
Must Have Yoga Accessories? What Do I Need?
If you're a beginner, you don't need much to do yoga – just your body, a space to practice and potentially a yoga mat. Ready to take your yoga practice up a notch? With some extra accessories, you can explore more challenging poses. Our luxury printed yoga mats come with their own carry straps for convenience between home, the gym or your yoga studio. For yogis who are always on the move, we also offer lightweight yoga mats that can be folded up and carried with ease, making them the perfect travel companion. Whatever your preference, you’ll find your ideal yoga mat with Luxya Yoga.
