Type of Yoga Mats:
First we tell you what type of mat you need to buy. The most commonly available yoga mat in the market is made of PVC and is very affordable. But do remember that Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is carcinogenic and is harmful to us and the environment. Try and avoid this mat as much as you can. Rubber Mats are a better choice. Made of natural rubber, yoga enthusiasts endorse this mat. It is a basic, simple and not too expensive. Padded Mats are soft and comfortable. Usually, the insides of these mats are made of foam, which is covered with cloth. These mats give more support than an average mat but provide lesser grip. They can also be only partially washed – while it is easy to wash the covering cloth, the foam cannot be washed. Cotton Mats-they are soft and give more grip than the padded mats.
One of the leading brands in the market, Soul Mat Roll offers you the extra cushion feel you will need during work out. Made of TPE Material, this mat is odour free and is reasonably priced. They have two categories- Starter and Pro which are targeted towards beginners and expert users. Buy here.
