So you've heard about yoga and you've decided it might be something for you. Don't be fooled by the "for beginners" label. Yoga is for everyone, regardless of fitness level or general state of health (although it tends to be quite good for it).
The best way to start your yoga journey is with the best yoga mat you can get. I'll be honest here, I am a yoga product junkie. I am a huge fan of Yogi brand and have a premium membership with them to have access to their future yoga product announcements.
However, I believe it is important to offer the alternative products to our readers in case you decide you want to try yoga but don't want to pay for a subscription to Yogi. So for a quick overview, Yogi sells premium foam mats that tend to be more expensive. They also have a professional grade equipment that is capable of handling the more demanding yoga practices for more committed practitioners.
I also believe that it is important to know the differences in the mats so you can make the best purchase for your lifestyle.
The "cheapest" yoga mats tend to be thinner and smaller than Yogi's mats (or most other brands). However, that doesn't always mean you get a better mat. Thinner mats are not necessarily bad, but most should still be quite grippy when wet.
It is good to score a yoga mat that has a few extra thick layers of texture on the surface to give you some extra grip. While this may not be as grippy as the premium yoga mats with their various designs and textured surfaces, it will provide you with a better experience over time.
The second "cheapest" option is the single sided foam mat. These mats are obviously cheaper to produce. However many of the cheaper mats are made with denser foam which is more likely to break down faster than Yogi's more expensive mats.
Traditionally, most people practicing yoga only had access to this type of yoga mat. These mats do tend to be a bit thinner and cheaper. However, they also last longer and they definitely tend to be more durable.
