  • All About Mats

    November 06, 2019 2 min read

    Mats come in all kinds of materials, colors, sizes, and flavors. Some smell like flowers, some look like they should be in a museum, and others feel so soft I want to wear them around my shoulders like a bunch of blankets. Over my years as a yoga practitioner, yoga teacher, and yoga learner, I’ve tried as many mats as I can to find the right one for me. As I learn and grow in this life, my wants shift and change along with the brand of my new favorite mat.

    Here is a comprehensive comparison of six mats that I’ve tried and loved.

    All About Mats l The Community Hub l Mukha Yoga

    Jade Harmony

    • Comes in a wide variety of super cool colors
    • Made of 100% rubber with no PVC, EVA, or other synthetic rubber which makes it seriously non-slip, especially when sweaty (very important to me since my hands and feet sweat profusely)
    • Comes in three lengths - 68”, 71”, 74” - and two widths - 24” or 28” - so you can customize it to your body
    • Jade plants a tree for every mat sold and some colors have different charities they contribute to as well

    Yoga Design Lab Cork

    • Made with sustainable, all natural cork on one side and rubber on the other
    • Cork is antimicrobial and literally repels germs and odor with its closed cell design
    • Weighs only 2 lb so hello healthy back lifting you out of my trunk!
    • Feels insanely cushiony because of the rubber bottom

    Hugger Mugger Tapas

    • Designed by Sara Chambers (founder of Hugger Mugger) and based on her original, first ever USA-made mat made specifically for yoga practice
    • Available in three lengths - 68”, 74”, 80” - and weighs only 2.4 pounds
    • Made of heavy metal & phthalate-free PVC that is long lasting and durable
    • Extremely affordable!

    Manduka eKO Lite

    • Made from biodegradable, non-Amazon harvested, natural tree rubber with non-toxic foaming agents and non-AZO dyes
    • Super durable and long lasting with a tacky, rippled texture that sticks to your hands
    • Comes in many thicknesses - 1.5mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm
    • Feels bouncy and dense but light

    Jade Voyager

    • Crazy easy to travel with as it folds into a square the size of a yoga block!
    • Thickness (1.5mm) and weight (1.5 lbs) contribute to the portability of this mat and ensure that wherever you go, you will be able to practice safely
    • Surprisingly durable for the size
    • Grippy traction is not compromised in any way with the surface of the mat

    Manduka PROlite

    • Improves with use over time so what might feel slippery at first will get better as it gets used to you
    • OEKO-TEX certified, emissions-free manufacturing, and sustainable engineering ensures high quality material will not peel, flake, or fade
    • 5mm thickness protects joints and provides superior cushion
    • Closed-cell surface keeps moisture and sweat from seeping into the mat and breeding bacteria
