An affordable yoga mat for beginners
We have good news for you: a good yoga mat does not have to be expensive. When you have completed your first yoga classes as a beginner, you probably want to buy your own mat. That is much more hygienic and you can also practice at home.
In many cases, a basic yoga mat offers an ideal balance between thickness, weight and affordability. As a beginner, it is extra nice to stand firmly on your mat, so that you do not slip during the poses.
If you want to become more familiar with the range of yoga mats, read this blog, which will help you choose the best yoga mat.
Cheap is expensive
Do cheap yoga mats have sufficient quality? Yes. And no. As with everything in this world, cheap is often expensive here. Some beginners buy a cheap yoga mat for € 10 at Action, Hema, Xenos, Flying Tiger or Lidl.
That is fine, of course, but you may wonder how much and how long you enjoy this.
A yoga mat has to endure a lot;
- Pressure. Due to the pressure of your weight, mats can dent in some places.
- Wear. Lateral pressure and sliding cause cheap materials to crumble.
- Perspiration. This causes you to lose grip on the surface.
The cheapest fitness mats crumble, dent and tear quickly. This also gives you those crumbs on your mat. Many beginners then come home from a rude awakening, because it is important that you are standing sure and firm during your practice. Just think, when your hands and feet slip during downward dog, the fun is quickly over.
We know that 'not feeling confident or comfortable' is a reason to quit yoga classes. That's a shame.
Cheapest yoga mat with good quality
Whether you are a beginner or a teacher, we think it is super important that you are standing comfortable on your mat. Or sitting or lying down. That is why we also believe that good yoga mats with a low price should exist. Those are the Basic Yoga mats from Love Generation.
Love Generation is our own brand. We select and test all products and materials ourselves - you don't want to know how many samples are reviewed before we make the best choice. Based on our years of experience as a yoga studio, we choose the highest quality materials. Qualitative products with a beautiful design (we love beautiful things). We are very proud of that. In this way, quality becomes affordable.
What else you should know about this product line:
Standard thickness for beginners is 4 or 4.5 mm
The thickness of your yoga mat has nothing to do with how good your yoga is or how long you practice yoga, but with what kind of yoga you practice, the floor you practice on and your personal preference.
A standard yoga mat is usually 4 or 4.5 mm thick, this is the most common thickness of a yoga mat. This size is thick enough not to feel the cold of the ground (we can't all do yoga in the heat of Bali) and thick enough not to bother your knees during low lunge yoga poses (Anjaneyasana).
The basic product line has 4 mm or 4.5 mm, so just the right thickness to keep your balance and to stay grounded with sufficient insulation and damping.
A basic yoga mat that is nice and light
A cheap basic yoga mat is not only economical in your wallet, but also lightweight. The Love Yoga mat from Love Generation only weighs 1100 grams. This makes it very handy to take with you. Of course you don't want to arrive at your yoga class sweaty and frustrated.
Cheapest travel yoga mat
Secretly, this line is also the cheapest travel yoga mat. The great thing about these Love mats is that you can easily fold them. Fold them twice and then they fit on the bottom of any medium-sized suitcase :-)
And further more.....
Finally, we would like to advise you to choose a yoga mat that you like! A nice mat works great for your motivation. Many of the 4 mm yoga mats have very nice prints!
