Rubber yoga mat is very common in life, more common is TPE material and PVC material, it is a kind of mat used to practice yoga, when practicing yoga, it can prevent the body from slipping and prevent the human body from pressing with the ground. So in the eyes of most people, the thicker the yoga mat, the better. is it really like this? Here we look at the same is not the case.
Is the thicker rubber yoga mat the better?
Yoga mats are laid on the mat below when practicing yoga. The Yoga mat has uniform surface particles, full air bubbles, soft handfeel, non-toxic, odorless, non-slip, strong springback ability, and strong anti-tearing ability. It is an ideal choice for yoga practitioners. In addition, the yoga mat can effectively block the coldness of the ground, has a strong grip, has outstanding resilience, flatness, slip resistance, and human skin affinity.
Many beginner yoga people often have such ideas in order to prevent themselves from falling: The yoga mat should be as thick as possible. In fact, this kind of thinking is wrong, because the yoga mat is not flexible in terms of thickness. The role of the yoga mat is to protect the body from being squeezed when it comes into contact with the ground. Therefore, elasticity is more important. For example, the 3mm yoga mat of TPE is better than the 6mm elasticity of the PVC anti-fatigue mat .
With a yoga mat of the same material, the elasticity of a thick mat will be relatively good. When you buy a yoga mat, you can find that the same kind of yoga mat will have a big difference because of the different prices. If the quality is equal, the 6mm thick mat of PVC yoga mat is more flexible than 5mm. The best yoga for beginners is 6mm. The thickness of the international standard yoga is 6mm, and this thickness is determined by a series of tests before it is accepted by all over the world. For those who have just come into contact with yoga, it is best to choose a 6mm yoga mat.
