Yoga is an incredible workout: not only does it increase flexibility, strengthen muscles, and calm your mind, but it can also seriously whittle your waist, ease lower back pain, improve blood pressure and cholesterol, even boost your immune system.

They start at just 5 minutes long, so you can fit in a sequence anytime, whether it's first thing in the morning or while you wait for dinner to cook. Pick one (or a few!) to practice daily and learn for yourself how yoga can benefit your mind and body.

Experts say: "Initially, Dana used her Instagram account as a way for her to track her own progress. She quickly became popular on the platform because she frequently posts photos of herself contorting her body in complicated and advanced yoga postures. People love Dana because she promotes self-love and her poses are aspirational. She advocates that yoga is for EVERYBODY, that people of all ages, sizes and body types can have a regular yoga practice. Most of all, she is relatable, transparent, and authentic — which is why so many people connect with her." — Serena Tom, Yoga Teacher, Equinox
… However, I was immediately skeptical of the opacity of a marketing phrase “non-Amazon rubber” which usually means Indonesian and Malaysian rubber. There is a significant problem of illegal logging, slash and burn clearing of primary rainforests, besides the 'usual' associated losses of flora and fauna, it results in a hazardous seasonal haze that covers much of lower Southeast Asia. A topic that deserves more turning over.
In addition to our personal and wholesale yoga mats, we also supply tote bags that allow you to roll your mats up and carry them between classes. Our reusable water bottles provide a sustainable alternative to carrying disposable water bottles to your yoga classes. You can order useful accessories such as disposable wipes for your mat and equipment, and our YogaMate mat even comes with a handy towel and tote bag.
About the channel: Dana Falsetti, the women behind Yoga Trees, came to yoga after years of struggling to love her body — and her practice helped her finally find inner peace. Her channel is mostly her quick Instagram tutorials, which are super helpful. You can also find her longer classes at Cody (see below). Falsetti has been featured in many online and print publications, including Shape, Mind Body Green, and more.
A good yoga mat should walk the line between being squishy enough to take some of the pressure off your joints, while being dense enough to offer a stable foundation. Too-soft mats may be comfortable, but they’re difficult to hold a pose on — and while you can stand on a too-firm mat forever, you may end up hurting your joints. Beginners, pregnant yogis, and people with sensitive joints should consider thicker mats, which offer more support. Yogis who commute or travel a lot may prefer thinner mats that are easier to roll up and carry.
We wanted to see how the most popular options compare, so we sought out mats that people were most excited about — from old favorites like the Manduka PRO to newer releases like the Alo Yoga Warrior Mat. We sifted through numerous “best-of,” “bestselling,” and “top-rated” lists, reached out to over 30 yoga instructors for their opinions, and dug into requests and queries from our yoga-loving readers.
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.
