The standard thickness of a regular yoga mat is 4–5 millimeters. Travel mats are generally 3 millimeters or less, and thick mats are 6–9 millimeters. The type of yoga you practice can help you figure out which thickness is right for you. Instructor Jane Witzenburg advises, “If you are doing a lot of lunges, use a thicker mat. If you are doing more balancing postures, use a thinner mat.”
The name of the video really says it all. Texas-based yogi Adriene Mishler directs you through a series of poses that works the lower body and gets you one step closer to the elusive "yoga booty," all while clearly having a blast. She serves up the sequence with a side of goofiness—you’ll feel like you’re taking class with one of your funnier friends. And laughing totally counts as a workout, right? (via Yoga with Adriene)

Experts say: "When you watch Tim's videos, his laid-back 'California' vibe truly shines through. People love him because his yoga videos are geared for both beginner and intermediate practitioners, and he'll also throw an advance yoga posture into the mix, which makes his videos more dynamic than other typical online classes. He always gives very specific instructions, too. When you watch Tim, you feel like you are getting more than just an online yoga class — you feel like you are getting to know the 'real Tim.'" — Serena Tom, Yoga Teacher, Equinox
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.
Like any sport, yoga requires a specific understanding of technique. It takes focus and attention to set up a yoga pose correctly, work within the pose, and then safely move out of it. Yoga instructors typically use the term “alignment” when referring to form. Correct alignment is when your bones are stacked and stable. This prevents injury because the muscles are working with the bone structure, rather than being pulled too much in one direction or another. When the muscles and bones are in correct alignment, you can typically go deeper into the pose without fear of injury, breathe more deeply, and receive more benefits from the posture. The 15 yoga videos for beginners below will help you achieve proper alignment in each pose so you can start feeling like a yoga pro in no time.
If you liked Erin Motz’s routine (listed above) but are craving some runner-focused R&R, this longer sequence has your name all over it. As instructor Goldie Kaufenberg mentions in her intro, this plan targets the pelvis and the body below it through gentle twisting and core work. After going through the 48-minute sequence, you’ll feel longer and more limber—the perfect complement to any endurance workout. We’re also big fans of the fact that she gives you options for the poses, walking you through the modifications you might need. (via Lululemon)

I bought this mat around 2 years ago when I started actively practicing. It has been through a lot with me, even a yoga teacher training! The pattern on the mat is beautiful and soothing, always gives me a good vibe when I roll the mat out. It has been a long time so it has gotten some little cracks in it, and over time it can feel thin when you need to be on the mat for an entire day. But I still love it because of the sentimental values. Now I am back to buy another one from Hugger Mugger – probably a thicker one.
Each pack of goodnessKNOWS® snack squares comes with four bite-size bars, so you can share—or not. Real fruit (like actual cranberies, blueberries, and strawberries) and whole nuts make them chewy with just the right amount of crunch, while dark chocolate adds cocoa flavanols (that's the good stuff in dark chocolate). Try a little goodness for yourself: Use code 25GREATIST to get 25 percent off one box of your favorite flavor.*
At 5.5 pounds and 4.2 millimeters, the Liforme is relatively light and thin for a partly-rubber mat. Our more experienced testers thought it was “the perfect thickness,” though one added, “I think if other people had more sensitive joints, it would be slightly painful.” If you need more cushion, we’d recommend the Hugger Mugger Para Rubber Mat or the Jade Fusion Mat.
Watch this video tutorial which asks you to explore the distrust you live with, and that we all live with, from living in a society that constantly offers bad support, or support that actually takes away more than it offers in the form of debt. What would it look like to reach a wall, and to know that beyond that wall we didn't have to live like this? In this set of exercises we do intense breath, visualization, and movement to connect with and imagine a world beyond financialization. *This video comes with free access to our introduction and warm-up videos.
