Yoga mats aren't just essential for yoga practices these days. Now they're a lockdown staple in a time of home workouts and juicy stretches for quick breaks. There are two main aspects to every yoga mat: the material, and thickness. Yoga mats made from materials like suede (our personal preference) are better for grip, which is particularly useful for sweaty palms (and now you know why). A typical yoga mat is 3 to 5mm thick but if you want more comfort for your knees and wrists, thicker ones are available at up to 8mm -- bulky, but safe. Then there are travel yoga mats too, which are thin enough to fold into a square and carry around. Find the best yoga mats 0f 2021 here:
