5 non-slip yog mats that will keep you steady
Lululemon The Reversible Mat
The Mat from Lululemon is a must-have in anyyogi’s arsenal, for good reason. Not only is it reversible, so you can practice on whatever surface best suits you (one side is smooth, the other has some perforation), but it’s also ultra-absorbant, so it will easily soak up sweat and wick away moisture. Plus it’s antimicrobial additive will help prevent bacteria and mould build-up.
There’s nothing worse than sliding all over while trying to master a new pose, which is why we love this rubber-free Gaim mat as it is made with a unique topcoat that promises to wick away moisture and provide a better grip as temperatures in class rise. And with 5mm of cushioning, it’s also soft on your joints.
Yoga mats are notoriously bad for the environment, but Jade prides themselves on sustainability as well as high-quality. With optimal grip, cushion, and a range of cool colour ways, this style offers everything you could want in a yoga mat.
If you’re the kind of person whose bold, printed tights stand out among a sea of black leggings in your yoga class, then this yoga mat has your name all over it. Boasting a funky black, white and yellow design this sturdy, flexible mat is as stylish as it is functional.
