A yoga mat should be comfortable and supportive, provide sufficient grip to keep you from slipping, and be no-fuss enough to clean and carry (whether from home to the park or back to in-person classes at your beloved gym or studio). Our hatha and hot-yoga instructors Downward-Dogged, Ashtanga vinyasa-flowed, and Savasanaed on 38 of the best yoga mats (and one mat alternative), and the one that came out on top is Lululemon’s The Reversible Mat 5mm. Its dual-textured sides, firm-yet-cushiony rubber construction, and ample size will have you covered, no matter what style of yoga you practice.

Lululemon The Reversible Mat 5mm, the best yoga mat

Lululemon The Reversible Mat 5mm

The best yoga mat
Your hands and feet won’t budge, and the 5 millimeters of natural rubber provide plenty of padding for knees. It’s available in a massive Big size too.
We recommend
JadeYoga Harmony Mat, a natural rubber option

JadeYoga Harmony Mat

A natural rubber option
Made of natural rubber, the Harmony mat feels like it suctions to your fingers and toes, and is especially good for hot yoga. But being rubber, it has that telltale odor, especially when new.

Gaiam Performance Dry-Grip Yoga Mat, a rubber-free mat

Gaiam Performance Dry-Grip Yoga Mat

A rubber-free mat
The PVC-made Performance Dry-Grip offers comparable stickiness, support, and cushioning to our two top picks, but without the latex.

Yoga Accessories 1/4″ Extra Thick Deluxe Yoga Mat, a bargain mat that holds up

Yoga Accessories 1/4″ Extra Thick Deluxe Yoga Mat

A bargain mat that holds up
This squishy ¼-inch (6.2 millimeters) PVC mat is a bargain—and it’s usually on sale. It’s 6 inches longer than your average cheapie, too.
Budget friendly
JadeYoga Voyager, a foldable mat for travel

JadeYoga Voyager

A foldable mat for travel
This was the only travel mat we tested that folded small but still gave us excellent traction during our practice and didn’t move around on the floor. Expect to sacrifice some cushioning for that portability, though.
