The best yoga mats are the ones that allow you to have a steady practice. That is, I believe, the single most important attribute!
Yoga mats are designed to help you during your yoga practice and prevent your hands and feet from slipping. They are also commonly known as non-slip mats, non-skid mats or sticky mats. They are a core item for the practice of Yoga "Asanas" today.
The Classic Yoga Mat
The "Aurorae" Classic Yoga Mat is an ultra thick, extra long mat with a focal point icon to help you focus during your practice and maximize the calming effect of Yoga.
It is available in a wide variety of Colors, it is also eco-friendly and free from Phthalates and Latex.
The 1/4" thickness provides enough cushion and comfort to protect your knees and joints.
"Aurorae" mat is one of the most durable and easy to care for yoga mats at a very affordable price. It has also been SGS approved (The world's largest testing, inspection and verification company for certification and your safety).
Best Yoga Mat-Size Towel
And last but not least, a Yoga mat towel is also necessary if you are interested in practicing Hot Yoga.
Hot yoga is offered in almost all yoga studios. The room in which you practice the hot yoga is heated up to 85˚ to 110˚ F, so you can imagine that you will be sweating copiously!!!!
You can use any kind of big towel to cover your mat but is preferable to use the one that is specifically designed to prevent slipping during your yoga practice.
Simply place the side with the silicone eco nubs face down on the yoga mat or low-pile carpet. Once you distribute your weight in a yoga posture, the eco nubs will "grip" the mat and keep your hands and/or feet from slipping in mid-stretch.
The towel is made of 80% polyester and 20% nylon material. It is super absorbent and will put a hygienic layer between you and your exercise equipment.
The towel is machine-washable and dryer-safe (it's designed to dry fast).
It measures 24 x 68 inches.

"All I can say is THANKYOU! so much for making this site! I was put on anti-depressants when I was 13 (now 20) after a childhood of severe abuse in every imaginable way. Just a few weeks ago I've come off my medications for good and am never going back. I came across this site today, it has helped so much already!
