The best travel yoga mats you can buy
- All yoga mats are inherently portable, but yoga mats built for travel are extra pliable and lightweight so they don't take up too much space in your suitcase.
- The highly rated Manduka eKO Superlite Travel Yoga Mat is made of durable materials and weighs only 2.2 pounds.
Yoga is the ideal form of exercise for travel. You can do it anywhere, even in hotel rooms (or airport waiting rooms, if you can get over the awkwardness) and with almost no equipment. The one thing you do need for yoga, however, is a mat.
While yoga mats are inherently somewhat portable, designed to be rolled or folded so you can toss them in your car or carry in your backpack on the way to class, some mats are certainly better for travel than others.
Travel yoga mats are usually thinner and more compact. Often the materials are more pliable, and they sometimes come with additional straps or pouches for added portability. The best ones are foldable, so you can pack them in a suitcase without taking up too much space.
Sometimes travel yoga mats have less padding than regular mats, which can be an issue for people who have sensitive knees or wrists. That said, there are plenty of them that rival the quality of typical mats while remaining travel-friendly.
