A good yoga mat is like a guide dog for the blind. It can lead us in the right direction. When choosing a yoga mat, it's important to consider not only the material, style, or design, but also the thickness, which is crucial for proper alignment and support during yoga practice. 

Based on years of production experience, we have covered three common thickness for the convenience of different yoga lovers to choose from.

For Athletic Yogis

The most popular thickness of a PU rubber yoga mat is 4.5mm or 5mm. The luxury PU surface owns wonderful slip resistance while the natural rubber bottom offers you excellent shock absorption. 100% natural rubber bottom  provides support and rebound resistance to your hips, knees, and wrists.

The 4.5mm-thick yoga mat becomes a leader, not only because it provides a good anti-slip mat for yogis, but also has the right weight to reduce unnecessary shipping costs.
