From the biggest Black Friday deals to our long-time WH faves, we’ve got your back
The best yoga mats and exercise mats are a hot topic and for good reason: how else are you going to smash your home workouts while keeping your joints safe?
Black Friday yoga mat deals can be just the thing if you’re planning to finally start up that few-times-a-week stretch sesh habit, maybe as a New Year’s resolution or just a proven mood-booster (honestly, the benefits of yoga are endless) as we head into the bleak mid winter.
From protecting your body from injury by keeping you steady and stable during yoga asanas (poses) to providing a softer surface for chest-to-floor burpees (vom), a yoga mat is the bread and butter of a great exercise kit.
First off, it’s totally OK to just buy one mat and use it for both your yoga sessions and your home workouts – you don’t need to fork out for both.
But, having said that, a yoga mat tends to be thinner, longer and more grippy than a standard exercise mat. Exercise mats can be a bit thicker to offer extra support for any higher-impact movement. They might be ribbed or made of foam too.
So, think about what you’re going to use your mat for the most before getting click-happy online.
How thick a yoga mat should be really depends on personal preference. If you have joints that ache after exercise (or just generally), choose a yoga mat above 3mm thick. This will make sure there’s enough cushion to support you whilst you move. If you like to feel the floor/ground beneath you (some do for extra sturdy vibes), plump for a yoga mat of 3mm or less.

There are five main factors to be aware of when adding to cart:
For those who answered yes to the anti-bac point above, you may be wondering what the best way to clean your workout mat really is.
Wipes or a cleaning spray applied in circular motions to both sides of the yoga mat with a towel are a good call for a quick fix between classes, but at some stage you are going to want to give your exercise mat a deep clean. The best course of action depends on the workout mat you have so check the label or instructions it comes with.
Some workout mats are machine washable (rejoice!), in which case giving it a deep clean is as easy as throwing it in the machine, putting it on a cold gentle cycle with mild detergent and air drying it afterwards.
Other yoga mats require just a bit more effort. The safest way to deep clean a yoga mat is by using a gentle cloth and warm water with either dishwashing soap or a mild detergent. Once you have cleaned both sides, make sure to use clean water and rinse the surface of the mat with the cloth before giving it a quick dry with a towel and leaving it to air dry.
Now that you know how to care for one, it’s time to get purchasing. We’ve done our best to source yoga mats, exercise mats, workout mats that not only fit every budget but that are also definitively great. From luxe athletic brands to more affordable options it’s time to shop – and ship – your new yoga pal.

Keep an eye out for any mats that have our WH Lab Approved badge proudly displayed on their picture. Think of it like a Where’s Wally for quality products, as these items have all been given our resident PT and yoga expert’s seal of approval.
Our pro put a total of 20 mats through their paces, seeing how each one performed during yoga, yoga nidra (a form of guided meditation), HIIT and even weights sessions. They were scored based on how grippy, comfortable, portable and stable they were (with bonus points for eco credentials), and only their favourite few made it on to this list.
But, if you fancy a bit more choice, never fear. Our editors (no strangers to a soothing stretching session) have listed their top black friday deals and picks for a spot of at-home yoga.

The MandukaPROlite Yoga Mat is a five star favourite. Not only does it rival the high-spec PRO for cushioning and durability, but it’s far lighter at only 1.8kg. As with the whole Manduka offering, it’s produced using environmentally-friendly processes and even has a lifetime guarantee. We’re calling it: this is a yogi must.

If you’ve ever tried a dynamic Pilates workout, or given hot yoga a go, you’ll know that your time on the mat can get pretty sweaty. And, as any overly keen lifeguard will tell you, wet surfaces are slippy (not ideal when we’re trying to perfect various precarious poses). Imagine our surprise then, when we found this With Every Atom mat actually becomes MORE grippy when wet.
Our expert said it offered amazing grip in all poses, even during sweaty sessions, and the weightiness of the mat allowed it to lie flat instantly while providing a luxe feel. This does make it less portable, so we’d recommend it for home yoga sessions only. But, beyond this, we had no complaints. 
USP: This mat gets grippier the wetter it gets, so there’s no need to worry about slipping hands during sweaty hot yoga sessions. 
Dimensions: 183cm x 68cm, 5mm thick
Weight: 2.5kg
How much? £60.00
We’re all for keeping your fitness routine fresh by trying new things. And, luckily for us, so is this versatile mat. It’s double-sided, with the cushioned red surface ideal for yoga and the grey side (with its anti-slip coating) providing a brilliantly grippy platform for energetic workouts. 
Our expert said it lay flat on the floor instantly when rolled out (nothing like tripping over curled-up edges to ruin your flow) and was robust enough to withstand a weighty dropped barbell, while also proving super comfy for yoga. The eyelets were a nice touch for hanging in our home gym, too.
USP: This double-sided mat is great for stretching sessions and sweaty workouts alike.
Dimensions: 180cm x 61cm, 5mm thick
Weight: 2.1kg
How much? £65.00
 If slipping limbs always seem to ruin your yoga sessions, this Sweaty Betty mat is the one for you. It was by far the stickiest mat we tried — our expert’s hands stuck fast in Downward Facing Dog — and is even sturdy enough to withstand a HIIT or weights workout without any marks being left on the latex.
The basic, block colour design isn’t going to light up your living room, but the mat is lightweight enough to roll up and take with you for al fresco sessions. It unrolls like a dream too, and the 4mm thickness provided an impressive amount of cushioning, protecting our tester’s spine from hard floors.
USP: Unbelievable grippy, this mat is one for seasoned yogis looking to take their practice to the next level. 
Dimensions: 183cm x 62cm, 4mm thick
Weight: 2kg
How much: £26.99
Ever tried savasana (also known as corpse pose — you get the idea) on a hardwood or tiled floor? Not fun. Or it didn’t used to be, anyway. Now, thanks to this plush mat, you can transform the hardest surfaces into cushioned workout zones.
It’s sticky and feels soft on bare feet, a potent combo for yoga, and is also more than durable enough to provide a solid base for weights sessions. Thicker than most mats, it cocooned our spines during ab workouts, but can still be rolled up tight thanks to its nifty adjustable carry straps.  
USP: The plush, 10mm thick rubber provides plenty of cushioning for ab workouts and burpees. 
Dimensions: 183cm x 61cm, 10mm thick
Weight: 1.25kg
How much: £24.99
Don’t fancy shelling out big bucks on a luxe yoga mat? Well, if it’s great grip you’re after, turns out you don’t need to. This Domyos Travel Yoga Mat was great for standing practices, allowing us to flow between poses without worrying about slipping. It’s incredibly thin too, so can easily be scrunched up and popped in your gym bag.
Don’t expect much support though — at only 1.5mm thick, it didn’t offer much protection for our expert’s spine during lying poses. However, if you want a mat to lay on top of your yoga studio’s well-worn offering (think hygiene, people), this portable option will definitely do the trick.  
USP: The thin, lightweight design means this mat will take up minimal space in your gym bag. 
Dimensions: 180cm x 62cm, 1.5mm thick
Weight: 1.2kg
How much: Was £49.95, now £29.97
First things first, let’s address the elephant in the room: this mat looks great. But, how did it perform?
Thankfully, there was plenty of substance to back up its stand-out style, with a layer of soft towelling providing a nice, soft feel to the upper. This could be a little slippy on dry hands, but (top tip) you can solve this small setback by giving it a quick spritz with water before using.
It’s incredibly light — great for travelling — and the soft towelling provided a surprising amount of cushioning for a 2mm mat. It did mark quite easily, though the fact that it’s machine washable means cleaning it is a doddle. 
USP: The thin, lightweight design means this mat will take up minimal space in your gym bag. 
Dimensions: 183cm x 61cm, 2mm thick
Weight: 1.5kg
How much: £60.00
If a mat has any green credentials, it’s a big bonus in our book. So, when we found out this mat is partly made from literal algae (yep, the stuff from lakes and ponds) we knew we had to give it a try. 
Our expert said it was one of the most comfortable mats they tested, offering mattress-esque levels of cushioning, and felt soothing on their hands and feet. It was surprisingly lightweight and portable too, handy if you fancy some Pilates in the park. Our only niggle: it wasn’t amazingly grippy, so we’d reserve it for more relaxed practices.  
USP: Top eco credentials make this a conscientious buy. It looks great and provides comfy cushioning too!
Dimensions: 190cm x 60cm, 5mm thick
Weight: 1.5kg
How much? Was £19.99, now £9.99
