Circle Sportswear non-slip and eco-friendly yoga mat: for a comfortable and environmentally friendly practice

The yoga mat is certainly considered an accessory for the practice of asanas or meditation. However, it is far from being a mere detail. Many yoga studios ask their students to bring their own mats to class. If you practice at home or want to continue your morning Sun Salutations on holiday or while travelling, you will of course need to bring your own. 

Investing in a yoga mat is therefore a must. But be careful not to choose it lightly. Because the quality of your practice (and all the physical and psychological benefits you will get from it) depends of course on you, but also on your mat! 

At Circle Sportswear, we offer you a high quality non-slip yoga matextremely durable and above all eco-responsible. Because "being in yoga" means being in communion with oneself, but also with nature.

The 2 essential criteria of a good yoga mat: non-slip and the right thickness

You thought you were using your gym mat or Pilates mat for your yoga sessions? You only have to try it once to see for yourself that this type of equipment is completely unsuitable. Yoga is a discipline of its own, and in order to benefit from all the virtues of a regular practice, whether it is dynamic or more meditation-oriented, it is necessary to acquire a very specific type of mat. 

A non-slip yoga mat

For a yoga mat, being non-slip is essential. Even with moderate effort, the body sweats. The soles of the feet and the palms of the hands often become a little sweaty.

You don't need to do a lot of postures to feel the heat. A simple Head Down Dog held for a few seconds already raises the body temperature. And if your bare feet or hands slip on your yoga mat, the posture will be anything but comfortable and beneficial. The non-slip property of a yoga mat is therefore absolutely essential for the quality of your practice. A non-slip yoga mat guarantees you comfort and stability in all asanas. Whether you practice Vinyasa Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Iyengar Yoga or Hatha Yoga, this is the number one criteria!

A 4-6 mm thick yoga mat

Again, the thickness is a criterion for your yoga mat. It should not be neither too thin nor too thick. Most beginners find yoga mats between 4 and 6 mm thick too thin. But they soon change their mind. Because this thickness provides the necessary comfort while maintaining a good stability on the floor. good stability on the floorThis is especially true for standing and balancing postures.

In addition, there is a lot of talk about a form of connection with the Earth in the practice of yoga. With a thicker mat, it will be absolutely impossible to feel this precious and beneficial connection.
