Round yoga mats

5 posts in this topic

Hi everyone, I'm new to yoga and actually got started by watching candace on YouTube. In starting to take it more seriously now and practice more frequently .

I was hoping for opinions on my first mat to buy. I have seen some round mats and would love to know if any of you guys use them, recommend them etc and why? Thought it would be good to get an insight before I part with my money! Thanks!

Round? It'll be tough if you attend a class.

I use and recommend the Jade Harmony

Pricey, yes. Worth it, yes.

You get what you pay for...don't skimp on the mat

I would avoid a round mat unless you plan on exclusively doing yoga at home. Jade is good, but there are a lot of great mats that are cheaper. If you are looking to make an investment in this new hobby, avoid a PVC mat. They are slippery and don't last very long. Normally they contain a lot of cheap chemicals as well.
