Yoga has now become one of the most popular fitness programs in the city. Whether you are practicing at home or in the gym or in a yoga studio, it is necessary to have your own yoga mat for safety and hygiene reasons.
There are many varieties of yoga mats on the market. The cheaper twenty or thirty yuan, the expensive one thousand yuan, what kind of suitable for yourself? The staff of Dongguan Chashan Hengfeng Zhixie Cloth Factory said that the price difference of yoga mats mainly lies in the material.
The first one: the lowest yoga mat of the yoga mat manufacturer is made of PVC material, the cheapest price, and the slip resistance is also good. However, some experiments have shown that this material may cause damage to the liver and kidney, so it is not recommended.
The second type: TPE material yoga mat, this kind of mat is non-toxic and degradable, the price is between 200-500 yuan, and the service life is longer, which is more suitable for personal use.
The third type: is a yoga mat made of recycled cotton, hemp and other materials. This mat is environmentally friendly, but it is more expensive and not durable.
The fourth type is a natural rubber yoga mat, which is also the most expensive one. It has no odor, and its elasticity and slip resistance are good, but it is quite heavy.
The most important indicator of yoga mats is slip resistance. The surface of a good yoga mat has a very complex raised pattern that acts as a slip. If you can try it out, you can do the most common posture of the ‘lower dog’ yoga. If you can keep breathing 4-5 times, your hands and feet will not slide forward and backward, which means that the slip resistance of the mat is very good. ”
Yoga mat manufacturers yoga mats avoid acid and alkali, high temperature and exposure. Use at home, usually once a week, wipe with a neutral detergent, then wipe with clean water. Do not put it in direct sunlight, and put it in the cabinet when not in use. If the northern family uses floor heating, it is best not to put the yoga mat directly on the ground. If you are practicing yoga outside, the yoga mat is inconvenient to carry, and you can also choose a yoga towel. This kind of towel is generally priced at tens of dollars and can be used on public yoga mats for convenient hygiene.
