Do the stresses of everyday life make it difficult to stay motivated and focused while you practice yoga? Polishing your practice is a bit easier when you have something pretty and functional under your feet to capture your attention. Trade out that old, crumbling rubber thing you bought at a discount department store (the one you’ve needed to replace every two months) for one of our fan fave yoga mats! Each one has its very own personality and speaks to a number of yogi souls, so you won’t have any trouble finding your perfect match. With these unique, colorful designs unraveling beneath your toes, you’ll never want to roll up your mat again.

Worth mentioning is one feature common to all of these luxurious mats: their synthetic suede surfaces. These mats provide extra comfort and grip during your sweaty practice. Gone are sessions of slippage and frustrating mat tears. These mats from Apeiron are optimal for both light and intense practice, so you can turn the heat up as high as your little heart chakra desires.

For the Star Gazer: Just a Phase

The moon’s cyclical nature is a reminder that nothing is set in stone. Like the moon, you are bound to wax and wane, to grow and emit your luminosity at different intensities every now and then. Trouble balancing in half moon pose? Gaze at these lunar phases and accept life’s little changes as they come. Proceed with an open, encouraged mind knowing that you are never bound to immobility.

For the Beach Bum: South Beach

Termed for its tropical namesake, the “South Beach” mat harnesses the balmy, sandy energy of your favorite island oasis. Hear that? It’s the roll and crash of foamy waves on the shoreline. Sea glass, shells and pebbles tumble in the surf and splash onto the beach, just a few feet away from where you lie in Savasana.
