Choosing the Best Yoga Mat for You: Price and Budget

As you can imagine, the price range of quality yoga mats can be as wide as the selection. You can spend as little as $15 for a standard vinyl mat at the local sporting goods store or more than $100 for a high-end mat in a studio boutique. Again, though, your budget will depend on your specific needs, style, attitude, and practice.

The bottom line? You typically get what you pay for. Whether you’re a seasoned pro and spend hours a week on your practice or you’re brand new to yoga, your yoga mat is an investment. Take your time, do your research, experiment with different sizes and materials and, above all else, don’t skimp on quality.
