Yoga Mats and Yoga Mat Bags
A yoga mat is an important accessory if you'll be practicing yoga on a wooden floor or any hard or slippery surface. Yoga mats are typically thin and have a textured surface to prevent slipping.
When shopping for a yoga mat, one factor to consider is thickness. Thinner mats are ideal for balance, while thicker mats provide more cushioning, which may be more comfortable for seated or kneeling poses. Standard yoga mats are about 1/8 inch (3 mm) thick, which works for most practitioners. If you feel that you need more cushioning, though, you may want to try a 1/4 inch (6 mm) thick mat. For maximum portability, on the other hand, you may want a thinner mat; travel yoga mats are often around 1/16 inch (1.5 mm) thick.
Another factor to consider is length. Your yoga mat should be at least six inches longer than you are tall. If you're more than 6 feet tall, look for an extra-long yoga mat.
If you'll be carrying your mat with you to a yoga class, consider getting a carrying strap or yoga bag. Some yoga bags are designed to be simple and compact, while others have pockets and other compartments for keys, cell phones, water bottles and other items.
At Walmart, you'll find a great selection of yoga mats and bags as well as other yoga and pilates equipment, all at Every Day Low Prices. Save money. Live better.
