Do you want to buy a new yoga mat? Pay attention to the thickness of your yoga mat, among other things, because there are different thicknesses to choose from. The thickness of your yoga mat is not related to how good your yoga is or how long you practice yoga, but with your personal preference. Most yogis buy a basic yoga mat of 4 or 4.5 mm, this is the most common thickness of a yoga mat. This size is thick enough not to feel the cold of the ground (we cannot all practice yoga in the warmth of Bali) and thick enough not to bother your knees during low lunge yoga poses (Anjaneyasana).
This basic yoga mat of 4 mm or 4.5 mm is also the perfect thickness to keep your balance and to stay grounded with sufficient insulation and damping. A yoga mat of 4 mm or 5 mm is lightweight and therefore handy to carry. Of course you prefer not to have to walk or cycle with an overweight yoga mat, to arrive at your yoga class completely sweaty and frustrated. Moreover (and for some one of the main reasons) many of the 4 mm yoga mats have nice prints.
