20 Perfect Picks For the Yoga-Lover in Your Life: With the holidays nearing, it's time to start thinking about what to give the people on your list who spend as much time on the mat as they do at home.
Great info here. I always plan to do yoga when I travel but never have room in my luggage for a mat. The best on this list is a non skid towel you can use instead >>> has anyone used a non skid towel to do yoga or pilates? I think i'm going to get this but would love to know what you think of it. :)
Manduka eKO SuperLite Travel Mat: Weighing in at only two pounds, the Manduka eKO SuperLite Travel Mat ($35, originally $39) offers the grip you've come to love from Manduka mats, but it easily folds up to fit in your suitcase or carry-on bag. It's 1/16 inch thick and made of biodegradable rubber that won't flake off or fade and comes in tons of great colors. Too thin for you? The eKO Lite Mat ($42, originally $46) is twice as thick and weighs 3.5 pounds.
Having a yoga mat that fits in your carry on changes everything about taking your practice with you on the go. Foldable, stowable and under 2 lbs of natural, biodegradable tree rubber, these eKO SuperLite travel mats fold up to about the size of an iPad. It means that wherever this summer takes you, you take your practice.
