Benefits of Long Yoga Mats

Your yoga mat’s ideal size must enable you to execute several kinds of yoga poses in a comfortable manner, so that you stay on the mat. A lot of fitness centers and yoga studios have wood floors; however, doing your poses directly on them is hard, especially when performing stances on the knees. Using a yoga mat will allow you to practice with ease, so that you’re on a cushioned surface at all times, where you can’t lose your steadiness or can’t slip.

Yoga has various kinds, and even if majority of them share numerous classic yoga postures, how they are executed is different, and it can be an issue when you choose the type and length of a mat. Yoga entails kneeling on the knees, doing jump backs, or spinning on the back in a variant of completely wrapped lotus. With that being said, you can consider getting thick and long yoga mats, which offer you no less than a 4-inch margin on every side. Choose something that provides the best traction despite being wet due to sweating.

Our extra long ¼” deluxe yoga mat is seven feet long and is extra thick, offering you greater padding and support. Its life span will never disappoint you because of its great durability and high quality. Additionally, it is heavy metal, latex, and phthalate free. And if you want something that won’t pose a problem to your health and the environment, this is the right one for you!

Another perfect mat for the health conscious is the CLEAN Yoga Mat. This is an antibacterial yoga mat that diminishes odors and defends against harmful bacteria. It has a sticky surface and is very resilient and guaranteed to last long.

PURE Yoga Mat, on the other hand, is a pioneering mat that is 100% free of phthalates and other harmful substances. This is considered as among the longest, stickiest, and thickest mats that are sold these days. It is made of high-quality materials, meaning it would definitely last longer than the usual mats available. It is great for any type of yoga, particularly for restorative postures.

One thing to take into account before purchasing a yoga mat is the weight. When you carry it at an average distance, you may opt for a lighter mat instead. A yoga mat can be less than two pounds or weighs up to nine pounds. The difference is huge, so it would be best to think about its main use and how convenient it would be for you in general.
