Observe the elasticity of the yoga mat. Squeeze the yoga mat with your hands, if you feel that your fingers are easy to pinch together, it proves that the yoga mat is too soft. Even if the yoga mat is thicker, the joints such as the knees will be painful when they touch the ground. If the yoga mat is too hard, it is not very good. Our fragile skin cannot accept it, and it breaks easily and is not easy to store. Be sure to choose a yoga mat with good flexibility and moderate hardness to match your practice.
The uniformity of the yoga mat. Lay the yoga mat flat and observe the uniformity of its foaming. If the foaming surface is uneven, it is easy to be damaged during use. If the foamed protrusion is damaged, it cannot be repaired.
Moderate in severity. Because yoga mats often need to be carried with us, try not to choose too heavy mats for easy carrying.
The anti-slip of the cushion surface, the cushion is flat, press the cushion with the palm of the hand and then push forward.

Unnecessary injuries may occur during the exercise, such mats should be used with caution.
