Whether you’re into classic vinyasa flows, hot yoga, Pilates or any other fitness class, yoga mats are a great way to upgrade your practice. You don’t need a private coach (a la Hollywood stars like Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and countless others) to take advantage of the health benefits of the ancient spiritual exercise, which began about 5,000 years ago in northern India and helps to increase flexibility, improve muscle tone and support the cardiovascular system.
Mats and holders can give you extra comfort and ease at home or at your favorite yoga studio — and you can use them to express your style, too. With favorites from Alo, Bandier, Jade, Lululemon, Manduka and more, here are eight of the best yoga mats and accessories loved by teachers and yogis alike (including fitness star and The Talk co-host Amanda Kloots). There are options for every type of fitness enthusiast, from mats for yogis who are on the taller side to non-slip gear for keeping your feet firmly in place. Check out our top picks below.
