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.
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.
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. :)
Hitting the road for a mid-summer vacation? There’s no need to take a break from your practice. Even if you’re traveling without a mat or don’t have the space to roll one out, you can still get your yoga fix and effectively stretch your whole body with these eight standing poses.
