Liz from Reviews.com recently made me aware of their review of yoga mats. Here's where I confess that I am not a mat connoisseur. I've been using the same purple mat for about 15 years, and I think I paid $10 for it. And it's holding up nicely, thank you very much.
These days, however, there are as many mats as there are students of yoga. I imagine trying to find the best deal must be quite a daunting task. How many hours do you have to google before making a decision? (I could make it a lifetime pursuit.)
The reviewers checked out 30 mats and came up with a list of their 10 best. You can click here to go straight to the review page, where they explain the criteria, give you a list of the top ten mats, and even offer some other suggestions.
Seriously. No excuses left. Get a mat and use it. You'll be glad you did.
