How to Choose the Right Yoga Mat


Yoga mats range greatly in price and quality, and finding the right mat can be overwhelming. Clever Yoga wants to make that decision a little easier on you  by breaking down the importance of the mat and helping you decide which yoga mat is right for you.

While yoga doesn't have to require much equipment, a yoga mat is essential for your safety and improved performance. It will cushion your joints during difficult poses. It will keep you from slipping during a sweaty workout. It will provide the traction you need to position your body correctly. 
But a yoga mat is also more than that. It represents your own space that is reserved for you and nobody else. It serves as a reminder to your nervous system to slow down, breathe, and take a break from the world. This is why it is so important that you have a mat that you love, a mat that feels secure and a mat that brings you joy. 

Up until recent years, there was only one type of yoga mat and the only choice was blue or pink. Now, there is a yoga mat perfectly suited to every preference and style. 

There is so much more to a yoga mat than color choice. A yoga mat needs to keep you stable during difficult poses. It should be comfortable and supportive for your joints. It should be easy to clean and easy to put away when you are finished with it. Some of you may also desire to have a mat that is environmentally friendly. 

Clever Yoga has designed a perfect yoga mat for every yoga practitioner – no matter your practice, lifestyle, values or budget. All mats are high quality and backed up by a special Namaste warranty.

The LiquidBalance Mat

Clever Yoga’s LiquidBalance mat is the highest quality yoga mat available. This mat is not your average yoga mat. It offers superior grip, comfort, support and durability that other mats cannot offer. The LiquidBalance mat is extra-long and extra-wide making it a perfect fit for all yogi bodies. It features 4.5 mm of non-toxic natural tree rubber thickness to support joints and provide the perfect amount of resilience. This mat is perfect for the yogi who values quality and comfort. The cost is higher than a standard yoga mat, but this mat will last a lifetime and be well worth the investment. 

The Liquid Balance Travel Size

The LiquidBalance yoga mat also comes in a convenient travel size that has the same features but is thinner and lightweight - perfect for yogis on the go. It rolls up quickly and works great as a mat topper in the yoga studio or any other destination.

The BetterGrip Yoga Mat

Clever Yoga knows that not everyone is ready to invest in a premium yoga mat, but that shouldn’t mean that there shouldn’t be a high quality mat available to keep them safe and comfortable during their yoga sessions. The BetterGrip yoga mat is easy on the wallet but still well constructed and durable. This mat is perfect for yogis who want a high quality mat for an affordable price. 

The Natree Yoga Mat

Clever Yoga also offers a Natree yoga mat that hits the sweet spot in between the BetterGrip and the LiquidBalance mats. The Matree yoga mat offers comfort and support while also providing a slip resistant surface with optimum grip. As with all Clever Yoga mats, the Natree mat is completely eco-friendly with no PVC or latex materials. 

No matter what the preference, style and budget, Clever Yoga has a yoga mat that is perfect for you!
