    Recommendations on yoga mat


    Hello! Looking for recommendations on yoga mat that has good support for sweaty hands 😂 let me know which one you use and for how long!

    Try a yoga mat that is good for hot yoga specifically! I have Lululemon The Reversible and it's great - one side for regular yoga, and the other side for when you need more grip (it's perfect for hot yoga, or someone who doesn't want to slip).  A little pricey but I've had mine for 5+ years and have zero complaints - it's still holding up really well. 


    I use the Manduka PROLite and I love it.  I've had it for 7 years (they have a 10-year warranty), I use it every day and have never tired of it.  It's a bit thicker (5mm) which is more comfortable for knees. I highly recommend.

    (I also have a Lifeform which is also great.  The size is a bit larger in both width and length than the Manduka and it has lines on the mat which is nice for alignment, but I still prefer my beloved Manduka.)

    I love my Manduka PROLite! 

    Hi. I practice hot yoga 6 days a week. I’ve been through several mats in my many years of doing yoga. The mat I finally found that I didn’t slip all over the place was the B Mat Strong. It’s 6mm as to the regular size mat 4mm which they sell. The Strong is better on the knees and I like the cushion. I’ve had it now for 2 years as to 6 months w my other mats. Good luck. 🙂

    I got you girl! I have sweaty hands and feet, genetics LOL. I use a regular yoga mat (not made for sweaty hands) and place a yoga length towel on top! You can find these towels on Amazon. 🙂


    I use a Jade yoga mat and I looove it!! It's held up very well over the years and is actually grippy, not smooth. I mostly go to hot yoga classes where I'm sweating a lot and really need to be stable, especially in downward dog!


    I'm another Bmat fan. I have a strong for my studio practice and a travel one for the road. Both are great! Been using Bmat since 2016.
