The most important indicator of yoga mat customization is slip resistance. The surface of a good yoga mat has a very complex raised pattern that acts as a slip. If you can try it, you can do the most common posture of the "lower dog" yoga. If you can keep breathing for 4~5 times, the hands and feet will not slide forward and backward, which means that the slip resistance of the mat is very good.

Why yoga mats avoid acid and alkali heat and exposure. Use at home, usually once a week, wipe with a neutral detergent, then wipe with clean water. Do not put it in direct sunlight, and put it in the cabinet when not in use. If the northern family uses floor heating, it is best not to put the yoga mat directly on the ground. If you are practicing yoga outside, the yoga mat is inconvenient to carry, and you can also choose a yoga towel. This kind of towel is generally priced at tens of dollars and can be used on public yoga mats for convenient hygiene.

There are many varieties of yoga mats on the market. The cheaper twenty or thirty yuan, the expensive one thousand yuan, what kind of suitable for yourself? The price difference of yoga mats lies mainly in the material. The lowest grade yoga mat is pvc material, the cheapest price, slip resistance is not bad. However, some experiments have shown that this material may cause damage to the liver and kidney, so it is not recommended. The second type is a tpe-made yoga mat, which is non-toxic and degradable, and has a long service life, which is suitable for personal use. The third type is a yoga mat made of recycled cotton, hemp and other materials. This mat is environmentally friendly, but it is more expensive and not durable. The fourth type is a natural rubber yoga mat, which is also the most expensive one. It has no odor, and its elasticity and slip resistance are good, but it is quite heavy.
