You should pay attention to the following points when purchasing yoga mats: the length should not be shorter than the height, and the width should not be narrower than the shoulder width.
The thickness is about 6mm. The thin mat will feel pain when the joint touches the ground. If it is too thick, it will affect the stability of the standing movement. (In general, beginners choose 7MM yoga mats are moderate)
Observe the elasticity of the yoga mat. Pinch the yoga mat by hand. If you feel that the two fingers are easy to pinch together, it proves that the yoga mat is too soft. Even if the yoga mat is thicker, the joints will be painful when the knees touch the ground. If the yoga mat is too hard, it is not very good. Our fragile skin is unacceptable, and it is easy to break and not easy to store. Be sure to choose a flexible, moderately soft yoga mat to match your practice.
The uniformity of the yoga mat. The yoga mat is tiled and observed to be evenly foamed. If the foamed surface is unevenly foamed, it is easily damaged during use. If the foamed convex portion is damaged, it cannot be repaired.
Moderate weight. Because yoga mats are often carried around, we try not to choose too heavy cushions to carry around.
The anti-slip property of the mat surface, the mat is tiled with the palm of the hand to press the mat and then push forward. If the mat slides on the ground or the hand slides on the mat surface, the slip resistance of the mat is not very good. It is possible to cause unnecessary damage during the practice. Such mats should be used with caution.
