One of the most common questions I get is; "What yoga mat should I get?"
How much of a difference can a yoga mat really make? When starting my yoga practice, I didn’t think much, but after almost 20 years of experience, I now know better.
Several experiences slowly changed my view: a down-dog-turned-plank, because I couldn’t keep my hands from slipping; joints that I was trying to preserve started to ache because of a lack of cushioning; an inability to relax in savasana because my mat smelled like it was well past its expiration date.
So I decided that investing in a good mat was a wise idea.
