1、1. Smell it. When buying, ask to open a new yoga mat and smell if there is any odor, the smell is too heavy, or it will not last for a long time, so it is recommended that beginners go to the physical store to buy yoga mats.
2、2. Be level. Lay the yoga mat on the ground. It should be smooth. If it is not smooth, it will hinder the easy completion of yoga movements.
3、3. Don't skid. When buying a mat, be sure to try the mat on the ground and push it away gently, it must have a dry feeling, so that it is not easy to slip, and the grip is strong. Avoid too much foaming agent on the surface of the yoga mat will have a slippery feel, which is not conducive to the safety of practice.
4、4, not easy to break. Before you buy a yoga mat, bring an eraser with you and use it to wipe the yoga mat to see if the material is easy to break, because a good yoga mat must have a certain ability to resist pressure and not be easily torn.
