2. Your yoga type is an important factor in your mat selection.
The type of yoga you do is a big factor in what kind of mat you choose. If you are wondering which type of yoga is suitable for you, you can find it from my previous articles.
Flow yoga classes require more complex movements, and you will need a non-slip mat to keep your balance. If you prefer Yin yoga classes or if you have just started yoga, you may prefer a softer, thicker and comfortable mat. Having lines of alignment in the middle or on the edges of the mat will also be useful in all kinds of yoga practices.
