What is a TPE yoga mat?
A TPE yoga mat is a yoga mat made from the TPE material. TPE (Thermo Plastic Elastomer) is a combination of plastic and rubber, and these yoga mats are free from harmful substances, hypoallergenic and 100% (biodegradable). If you want an environmentally friendly yoga mat, then a TPE yoga mat is a good option.
This TPE yoga mat has instant grip. This material is also softer than PVC, which offers more comfort when sitting and lying down. It is a very pleasant yoga mat for yoga styles such as Yin Yoga and Kundalini Yoga. However, because it 'gives more' balance positions become a slightly greater challenge and the open-cell structure ensures a shorter lifespan for very active forms of Yoga such as Ashtanga Yoga, Power Yoga, Vinyasa Flow and Hot Yoga.
