So in most people's eyes, the thicker the yoga mat, the better. is it really like this? Let's take a look at it together.

Is the rubber yoga mat as thick as possible? Yoga mats are laid on the mat below when practicing yoga. The surface of the yoga mat is evenly granulated, full of bubbles, soft to the touch, non-toxic, odorless, non-slip, strong rebound, and has strong tear resistance. It is an ideal choice for yoga practitioners. In addition, the yoga mat processing yoga mat can also effectively block the ground cold, strong grip, outstanding resilience, flatness, slip resistance, and human skin affinity.

Many beginners in yoga often have the idea to prevent themselves from falling: the thicker the yoga mat should be. In fact, this idea is wrong because the yoga mat is heavy in elasticity and not in thickness. The role of using a yoga mat is to protect the body from being squeezed when it comes into contact with the ground. Therefore, flexibility is more important, such as TPE's yoga mat 3mm is better than PVC yoga mat 6mm elasticity.

With the same material of the yoga mat, the thick cushion is relatively elastic. When you buy a yoga mat, you can find that the yoga mat of the same material will have a big difference depending on the thickness. If the mass is equal, the PVC yoga mat 6mm thickness mat is better than 5mm. The most suitable yoga for beginners is 6mm. The yoga standard for yoga mat processing is 6mm. The thickness is determined by a series of tests and accepted by all over the world. For those who are new to yoga, it is best to choose a 6mm yoga mat.
