A good yoga mat has a very complex embossed surface that acts as a slip. If you can try it, you can do the most common posture of the "lower dog" yoga. If you can keep breathing for 4~5 times, the hands and feet will not slide forward and backward, which means that the slip resistance of the mat is very good. Below we use the lower dog type to make a test on yoga mats of different materials:
NBR: The lower dog type can maintain 2-3 breaths. Since the thickness is more than 10 mm, it is easy to step on the stamp.
PVC: The lower dog type can maintain 2-3 breaths. Good anti-slip effect when dry, sweating is anti-slip performance
TPE: The lower dog type can maintain 4-5 breaths. Slip resistance is sufficient for general yoga use
Linen: The lower dog type can keep more than 5 breaths. The anti-slip performance is excellent, and the lower dog type has no problem at all.
Rubber: The lower dog type can maintain 4-5 breaths. Slip resistance is sufficient for general yoga use
A subtle anti-slip gap for a completely different user experience:
Due to the different anti-slip effect of the yoga mat, it is the difference between the breathing in the yoga body. Don't underestimate the difference between these breaths. This is an important expression to distinguish between beginners and seniors of yoga. It is impossible to be a beginner by the yoga mat to deal with the slip resistance of yoga mats. It is true that only a good yoga mat can give you the desired yoga performance!
