Choosing the right yoga mat
You may discover that there are many different yoga mats. If you do not know much about it yet, choosing the right yoga mat is a big challenge. Yoga mats come in different thicknesses, lengths, materials and last but not least, colors and design. How do you choose? Below you will find an explanation of the materials, thicknesses and dimensions. This can help you find the yoga mat that best suits you, your yoga style and wishes.
Material Yoga Mats
PVC Yoga mat
Most yoga mats are made of PVC, also called Sticky Yoga mats. These mats have a good grip, so that you do not slip away in a yoga posture, and the mat stays well on the floor. There are many different qualities in PVC mats. A good quality PVC yoga mat is suitable for all yoga styles, has a long lifespan and some of these mats are virtually indestructible. An advantage of this type of yoga mat is that it can be washed in the washing machine. PVC yoga mats become increasingly stiff with longer use, this means that your yoga mat gets more grip and is therefore finer in use.
TPE Yoga mat
Do you prefer an environmentally friendly Yoga mat, then perhaps a TPE mat more that suits you. A TPE (Thermo Plastic Elastomer) is a combination of plastic and rubber. These Yoga mats are free from harmful substances, hypoallergenic and is 100% biodegradable. This yoga mat has good grip. TPE is softer than PVC yoga mat, which offers more comfort in sitting and reclining yoga postures, These Yoga mats fit well with Yoga styles such as Yin yoga and Kundalini Yoga. Because it is softer, balance postures are a slightly bigger challenge. Due to the open cell structure, the yoga mat will have a shorter life span with active forms of Yoga such as Ashtanga, Power, Vinyasa Flow and Hot Yoga.
Natural Rubber Yoga mat
made of natural rubber are naturally an environmentally conscious choice. Natural rubber is sometimes also processed with another material such as cotton or jute. These yoga mats have a very good grip, even with moist or perspiring on the palms and feet. Nature rubber yoga mats have a longer lifespan than TPE, but wear out with intensive forms of Yoga. One hundred percent natural raw material is sustainable for the environment, this type of yoga is slightly less durable in terms of lifespan. Natural rubber has a 'specific' smell that does not completely disappear. Take this into account. A natural rubber yoga mat is ideal in grip and comfort.
Other Materials Yoga mat
Bodhi yoga has also made yoga mats made of other materials such as cotton (traditional yoga back), as well as new quality plastics that are more durable and therefore provide a different comfort. These specific properties can be read with the product.
Dimensions and Thickness of a Yoga Mat
The standard dimensions of a yoga mat in Europe is 1.83 cm long and approximately 60 cm wide. Bodhi has also developed yoga mats for longer people with a length of 2.15 cm. Yoga mats extra wide of 80 cm have the advantage that you have more room to move.
Yoga mats come in thicknesses ranging from 2 mm (yoga trip mat) to 10 mm. The most commonly used yoga mats are between 4 and 6 mm thick. Which thickness is the most suitable? That depends on a number of factors. For example, 4 mm mats are more stable with standing and balancing, 6 mm yoga mats provide a little more and are more comfortable. These are fine with sitting and lying postures. Thin yoga mats and / or stiff yoga mats are often perceived as better with ordered yogi, and with less experienced people it may feel more sensitive to the feet.
Also the yoga style is an important factor. With which the yoga teachers naturally have experiences. And can give personal advice. You can also decide for yourself what works best for you and especially what is best for your body.

The shape and weight of the chaff creates an excellent strength without being too heavy and does not lose its resilience.

The height of a meditation cushion can be lowered by removing some buckwheat chaff from the pillow. You pull out just as much until the pillow has your ideal height. On these cushions you can sit in Easy Pose, Lotus position and in Seiza (legs on both sides of the pillow). If the cushion feels too low, a tip is to put it on its side or place two cushions on top of each other.

The meditation mat can be used on its own for your meditation, but it is advisable to combine it with a meditation cushion or meditation bench.

A meditation bench is not adjustable in height, and is mainly suitable for people between 1.65 and 1.80 cm. Meditation benches are made for the Seiza seated posture, the Japanese sitting posture from the Zen meditation.
What do you pay attention to when buying yoga clothing?
Yoga clothing is preferably made of a natural material that breathes well and can often be washed. The fabric should be elastic so that it stays in shape during the yoga exercise and should not pinch anywhere. The preference among many yogis is that the yoga clothing is not too wide and does not shift during the exercise, otherwise usually distracts. Most women like it when a yoga top at the front closes a little higher, so that it also stays comfortable during over bends and inverted postures. Finally, the preference is for a yoga top built-in cup so you do not need an extra bra underneath.
