Price is an important factor when considering a yoga mat. If you’re a new yogi, it might make sense to choose a more affordable mat with fewer frills. But it’s also good to consider longevity vs. initial cost. All of our top picks are durable and can withstand heavy use for many classes to come, so putting down more money upfront might help you avoid having to replace a cheaper mat later.

I personally believe the Liforme Yoga Mat is the best yoga mat currently available. Though slightly thinner and lighter than its “Everyday Practice Mat” competitors, it still manages to be incredibly durable and supportive enough for knees and other bony joints. It feels great on the skin, stays grippy without clinging in wet or dry conditions and comes with helpful alignment markers to keep you balanced and strong.
When I first started to do yoga again after several decades of inactivity, I had concerns. Was I too old for yoga to be effective? Would the extra pounds that I had picked up over the years prevent me from doing the moves properly? Was I too stiff to enjoy yoga? Would I be embarrassed to join a yoga class and be surrounded by younger people doing advanced moves? Now that I have been doing yoga for a few months, I have never felt better.
Experts say: "Kino's videos are great for beginners, and for experienced practitioners looking to refresh their knowledge.

She also explains both the purpose and the benefits of each pose, all while moving through a simple and meditative flow." — Serena Tom, Yoga Teacher, Equinox
I’ll explain exactly what is in each video in a second, but, first I want to give you a chance to watch Cat’s introduction video.

Trending Now: Trends in yoga clothing and activewear change rapidly, and we are always excited to see what is coming next. This year brought us a ton of mesh paneled cut outs. We love this trend as it caters to yogis who prefer a solid color legging, but want an element of chicness. Printed yoga leggings have taken over recently, and we've seen lots of trends come out of this. Recently star print leggings have been popping up everywhere. We always love animal prints and this season was no exception with a large number of takes on the traditional leopard print.
