Yoga mats in the Philippines

If you want to start building your own fitness space at home, you can start small with a versatile yoga mat. Not only can you perform yoga poses with one, but you can also use it for a variety of exercises.

From items with gorgeous nature prints to mats made of eco-friendly hemp, here are 9 yoga mats in the Philippines you can check out.

– Note: choosing the right yoga mat thickness –

Yoga mats’ thickness can range from 0.55MM to 10MM. Those who often do exercises that require active yoga poses or exercises should opt for mats 5MM thick and below, so they can ensure more support for their stability.

If you tend to perform poses that will require closer contact with the floor, choose thicker mats from 5MM and above, so your joints will be given extra cushioning.

If keeping your fitness equipment more eye-catching as well as practical will motivate you to fulfill your routine, then you may want to check out Flow Manila’s Pu Natural Rubber Yoga Mat (P3,200, ~USD63.16).

Featuring a gorgeous depiction of nature, it will help you be more at peace with your poses with its calming lines and colors. But of course, it’s more than just its look as it’s also at just the right amount of thickness at 5MM, providing both firm cushioning for your joints and balance. You won’t have too much environmental impact with the mat, made of polyurethane and a natural rubber base which are more eco-friendly than other yoga mat materials.

The materials may fall short, however, when it comes to durability, but if sustainability is also your priority, together with its other features, the Flow Manila’s Pu Natural Rubber Yoga Mat should come as a good choice. Do note, though, that it’s not the best mat for people with latex allergies given its natural rubber material.

If you often do active exercises that require more stability, you may want to consider mats as thin as the Miniso Yoga Mat (P299, ~USD5.90). At 3MM, it will help you achieve balance as you do your poses, while also not compromising your grip given its textured surface. Aside from helping your poise, the 3MM mat is also suitable for travel. 

It’s made of plastic, so it is not the most eco-friendly. But you can be rest assured of its durability, and if you tend to be allergic to rubber, its latex-free material will spare you from any reaction.

Sometimes you might need to do poses that require you to hold a pose on a mat. The Lululemon Reversible Yoga Mat (P5,028, ~USD99.24) may come in handy then, as it is a reversible mat with dual textures. 

One side, made up of polyurethane, has a smooth and more sticky feel that will help your hands and feet stay supported on the mat, while another side, made of natural rubber, provides grip that ensures you’re supported throughout your poses with its more textured material. Both of these materials are more eco-friendly than plastics too. 

If you’re allergic to latex, this may not be the best mat for you though, given that it features natural rubber.

They are more environmentally friendly than the usual plastic-based mats, as the material is a man-made blend of plastic and rubber that can be recycled.

If you think yoga mats look all the same, the Flow Fitique Hemp Yoga Mat (P1,099, ~USD21.69) will offer a visual change as it’s not the usual type of mat entirely made up of plastic or rubber.

With its top layer’s natural hemp fibers, its coarse, unique natural look can be mistaken for a carpet, serving both practical uses as well as aesthetics.  Fabric from hemp is eco-friendly too, given that hemp, compared to cotton, for example, doesn’t require pesticides and needs little water to grow. It’s also equally durable. 

Grip isn’t a problem either, as the hemp layer’s coarse texture will help you stay supported by the mat, and it’s not rough enough to give your skin scratches. Plus, the hemp has woven PVC rubber underneath that gives the mat extra floor grip and support. 

Thickness: 6MM
Length: 183CM
Material: hemp, PVC
