What is the difference between an exercise mat and a yoga mat?
The main difference between a yoga mat and an exercise mat is usually the thickness/thickness. Yoga mats are usually considerably thinner than an exercise mat. A gymnastics mat has a thickness of 0.9 cm - 2.8 cm, whereas a yoga mat usually has a thickness of approx. 0.6 cm. Since a yoga mat has to be easy to handle, transport, set up and take down, the compact and thin design is an advantage.
What should be considered when ordering yoga mats?
The right yoga mat can be recognized by the essential points for yoga mats, which stand for good functionality as well as quality and durability. Good yoga mats have an increased TPE content, which has a positive effect on tear strength and flexibility. A higher tear resistance also means a higher / longer durability. In addition, good yoga mats are made of a particularly non-slip material that allows the athlete to use the mat in almost any situation. Thanks to the improved, double-sided texture, the yoga mat is particularly slip-resistant and at the same time is easy on the joints and pleasantly soft. For easy and space-saving storage, the PRO GYM yoga mat has a practical shoulder strap that also allows for comfortable transport
What can you use a yoga mat for?

The optimal size of the yoga mat for the respective athlete depends on the body size. The ideal length of the yoga mat is approx. 10 cm longer than the body size. If you are 175 cm tall, a length of 185 cm is ideal for the yoga mat. The current standard length is now 183 cm, with which most body sizes achieve optimal training success. The situation is similar with the width, which is now set at 61 cm, analogous to the length standardization.

In the outdoor area, for example on a meadow with short grass, it is important that it is dry. Depending on how dirty it is, cleaning is recommended after use in order to achieve optimal training results again during the next training session.

It is particularly important to keep the mat free of sweat and fat after training in order to achieve optimum slip resistance with the best grip and the desired training effect.
What material is a yoga mat made of?
A yoga mat is usually made of the material "TPE" / "TPR". The term "TPE" stands for "thermoplastic elastomers" / "thermoplastic rubber" and refers to a material with properties similar to rubber that have been combined with the properties of thermoplastics. For example, "TPE" has the option of being plastically deformed with thermal heat supply and being processed into a yoga mat, for example. Thermoplastic elastomers have been increasingly used since the middle of the last century. The "TPE" material is non-toxic because it does not use any plasticizers or heavy metals and is environmentally friendly because it is 100% recyclable and biodegradable.
