What? Form Travel Rectangular Mat in Marble, £50
What is it? A sustainable and machine-washable yoga mat with alignment guides to help correct form.
The verdict: “I took this mat on my latest yoga retreat as it is small, lightweight and easy to travel with. When I rolled it open for the first time, I immediately fell in love with the oceanic design and the discreet geometric pattern created by the alignment lines that help achieve proper form when doing yoga moves. Unlike many other mats, the surface is soft rather than rubbery. I anticipated the smooth surface would equate to it being more slippery, but I actually felt really supported as there was loads of grip.
The travel version compromises on thickness in order to make it lighter and easier to carry. That works well for me, because I prefer a thinner mat, but you might want extra cushioning for sensitive knees – in which case, their Pro mat might be a better choice. This mat is made from recycled materials, and is fully recyclable at the end of its life – which is a big win compared to many other mats which end up in landfill.”
