I was pleased when Lexi Watkins from contacted me to see whether I would be interested in sharing the extensive and detailed research they had done on Yoga Mats, with the aim of finding which is the 'best' one. has conducted over 50 hours of extensive research on dozens of Yoga mats, consulted with over 100 yoga professionals and read 50 industry publications as part of the research.

Lexi informs me that the aim was to find the 'best' yoga mat for the masses by focusing on the mat's ability to provide the right amount of traction, density, comfort and stability whilst also focusing on size, portability, weight, colour, eco-footprint and price. They focused on 30 mats and whittled this down to their top 10. 

The results of the research from include:

- Best Overall Yoga Mat: Manduka PROlite

- Best Eco-Friendly Yoga Mat:  Jade Harmony Professional

- Best Budget-friendly Yoga Mat: Gaiam Print Professional 

- Best Non-slip Yoga Mat: Liforme Yoga Mat

- Most Low-maintenance Yoga Mat: Yoloha Creative Cork Yoga Mat

it seems that the 'best' Yoga Mat is personal to each person and one that makes you comfortable, relaxed and supports you whilst also being stable and portable.
