Hate going to the store when you can just as easily buy what you’re looking for online? I’m right there with you. When trying to shop for yoga mats, it’s sometimes easier to find what you’re looking for online rather than going store-to-store. I’ve found a few places you can check out if you’re in the market for a new mat that.
Even if you don’t find what you’re looking for, the websites below can give you a rough idea of what you’d be looking to spend as well as the many different types of mats available on the market.
Chances are, you’ve probably heard of amazon.com. It’s one of the biggest online markets in the industry, and it has hundreds of thousands of items related to yoga. For yoga mats specifically, it has over 30,000 results to sift through.
While this may be amazing for some, this could easily be seen as overwhelming for others. With so many options, how can you be sure that you’re making the right choice on your mat? Luckily, you can filter the results on amazon and sort by highest reviewed to reduce the number of results and help you narrow down your options.
There’s nothing wrong with purchasing a mat on Amazon, and it also, along with many sellers on the site, has a wonderful return policy!
If you’re still leery, see what I had to say about the mat I bought off of Amazon!
If you’re in the market for a more eco-friendly yoga mat, you should check out Barefoot Yoga Co. They have a variety of yoga mats ranging in price, but all of their yoga mats are what they claim to be “earth conscious.” The selection on Barefoot Yoga Co. is not as extensive as Amazon’s, so it shouldn’t leave viewers feeling to overwhelmed.
They have about 6 different types of mats to choose from and an assortment of colors on each! Their FAQ is very helpful in letting potential buyers which mat would work best for them. If you have any questions that aren’t answered in the FAQ or simply want to work with someone from Barefoot Yoga Co. to help you find the perfect mat, they’ve helpfully listed their phone number right at the top of their Yoga Mat Guide.
Perhaps you’re in the market for one mat or perhaps you’re in the market for buying a high quantity of mats at a wholesale price. For either scenario, yogaoutlet.com is worth checking out. They have over 100 different styles of mats to choose from, many of which you can get a discount for if you buy in bulk. They have brand names such as Jade Yoga, Gaiam, Manduka, PrAna, and more!
Aside from just mats, YogaOutlet has many other yoga accessories including: clothing, mat-cleaners, pillows, chairs, and many additional yoga necessities. This website is really cool and is worth checking out if your looking for anything yoga related.
To Buy or Not to Buy?
Before you make any purchases, I highly recommend reading reviews on whatever it is you’re looking to buy. Reviews are so helpful, as many people are honest when writing them. They will let you know what they like and what they don’t like about whatever item they’ve already bought.
Aside from reviews, do some research of your own. Find out what companies you like (or don’t like) and what causes they support. I personally like to support something whenever I make a purchase, as it’s a reminder that I have a pretty good life compared to many people in many parts of the world. I am fortunate for what I have and like to give back whenever I can.
These may not be your same desires, and that’s okay! You should still ask around and do some research to avoid buying something that you don’t know much about. It will save you from having to return the item and starting over.
I hope this was helpful, and I hope you find the mat you’re looking for! If you have any questions or comments, feel free to leave them below!
