If you practice yoga based on soft training, you will often encounter sitting on a mat. At this time, a thicker and softer yoga mat will make you more comfortable. But if you are practicing a type of yoga that is more vigorous such as Power Yoga, Flow Yoga or Ashtanga Yoga, then you need a thinner and harder mat. A yoga mat that is too soft is not easy to do. Some people who are more demanding will feel that too thick yoga mats hinder their contact with the ground, etc. In fact, the thickness of yoga mats depends on personal preference.
If your movements are not so static, and you don’t sweat as much as running, are they somewhere in between. Which kind of mat should be used? I will answer “or choose a thinner one.” Thick cushions (above 5 mm) lose the feeling of contact with the ground, and will feel “distorted” when doing a lot of movements. In foreign countries, most yoga practitioners love to use thin mats. This is the reason. If you feel that your knees are uncomfortable when the thin cushion is doing some kneeling movements, you can put a towel under your knees.
