Two Sides to All Yoga Mats; Know Which Side is Up Yoga mats come in three basic thicknesses. At 1/4″ this one tops even the thickest sticky mats. Roughly the thickness of two average mats together, this one will help cushion all those boney parts and not bunch up the way two mats together always seem to do. It’s not only thicker, it’s denser to boot. It’s cushion without mushiness. However, this cushion comes at the price of being quite heavy — more heavy than four average mats combined! Probably not the best choice for a mat you tote around unless you want to get in some extra strength training. This one is the kind you buy, find a place for, and leave it there. Also note that the roll this yoga mat makes is huge, something to consider if between practice storage space is an issue. The “thick” mats at 3/16″ will still provide extra cushion without the hassle but if you’ve tried them and they’re still not enough, this might be the way to go. Mats that are about one third as thick as this one (1/16″) are good for travel or placing…

Which Size Manduka Is Right for You? I obsessed about whether to purchase the regular size Manduka or the longer 85″ model. I am only 5’9″ tall and was told by almost everyone that unless you are 6′ tall or over you don’t need the longer mat. Besides, the longer model is “so” heavy. As usual, I went my own way and purchased the longer mat and am glad I did. I love the longer mat. First of all, when I am completely stretched out on my stomach, my entire body is on the mat, face, hands and feet–not on the floor. I like the balanced feeling of every part of me being on the mat. Also, when I do my various asanas, I can now start in different spots on the mat and therefore put less wear and tear on the same spots. Second, I am afraid I don’t understand the “weight” issue? The 71 inch model weighs 6.5 pounds, this one weights 9 pounds. For me that’s not much of a difference, especially since I am only carrying the mat from the parking lot to the yoga room, not backpacking across India. Most of the time the mat is at home…

Want to get better? Get a better mat. $85 for a yoga mat? Like most of you, I had the same reaction, but it is one of the best investments I’ve ever made. Yeah, it’s a lot of money, but the best always is — and this mat is clearly the best. That’s why your instructor uses one. You won’t believe how much better your poses and jump-backs will be until you try it on this extremely supportive surface. It’s well padded, but firm — never squishy — so your stability is excellent; and its surface relies on texture, not stickiness, to ensure superb grip, even when sweaty.Ā
