What is a PVC yoga mat?
A PVC yoga mat is a yoga mat made from the material PVC (polyvinyl chloride). The PVC yoga mat is a sustainable choice because it will last a very long time. But the PVC yoga mat is not necessarily an environmentally friendly choice, due to the use of harmful solvents and plasticizers.
Yet the PVC yoga mat is one of the most used yoga mats, because they have a rough and sticky surface that will prevent you from slipping. A PVC yoga mat is great for all forms of yoga, but sweating makes them a bit slippery. Because the PVC yoga mat has a dense cell structure, the moisture is not properly absorbed.
