The Almighty Yoga Mat

October 20, 2017


When I started yoga, my fabulous teacher Madame Prudhome a 70 something year old woman who's yoga studio offered blue shag carpeting and a starlight ceiling told us to use bath towels or the camping foam mats she had lined up against the wall. Even when I started teaching, camping foam mats or puffy exercise mats were what we used. When you don't know what you're missing, you don't know! I even remember when yoga mats became a thing. And today, for many of us, our yoga mat is not just a tool but it has become our sacred space.


In light of the consumer model we live in, choosing a mat can be a complex thing. How is one to choose? Does price really make a difference? I have had so many mats over the years and I know what I love but it's a personal choice and if you are not in a position where mats are at times given to you or where you get to try many of them easily, reviews are a good place to start.


So here goes: My favourite mat is the sattva jute mat from hugger mugger. It's light, thin and has a rough and sticky feeling to it. I have tried many mats over the years and always come back to this one.
