Finding a good yoga mat is like finding a great pair of running shoes. It has to have the right size, fit and grip, This eco super light travel yoga mat by Manduka is our FitSugar Team's favorite because it's lightweight, folds up and is great for on the go. I've invited FitSugar host Anna Renderer to tell us about this yoga mat. Hi. Thank you. When I found this yoga mat, I fell in love. It is so lightweight, it weighs about 2 pounds, so super easy to take with me wherever I go. Not heavy and bulky, and it folds up. So as you see I mean it's already folded up pretty small, I can fold it again. Wow, really tiny. I can put it in my purse if I want to, I absolutely love it. What is this made out of? This is made out of a natural tree rubber. So, it's actually very eco-friendly which I love, all of us yogis do, and if you feel it - I'll just fold it out here for you so you can step on it and feel the consistency of it. It's nice and sticky. Yeah. It's got a really good grip. It's got a great grip for doing yoga. Go into kind of a wide stance where you might slide a little bit on a regular mat. Okay. So this is really regular size yoga mat also, you feel how wide it is too. Wow. So you think travel, you think Like mini. Like mini, right, but it's not. It's got a regular size and it's got a good grip. So it's got this closed cell design which keeps it bacteria free. Oh that's great. So if you wanted to wipe it down and then put it back in your bag and kind of travel with it. Then it's very nice and cleanly. So it doesn't hold bacteria like those other mats. Exactly. Exactly. So who is this yoga mat for because I know that I have never seen a yoga mat that folds up so easily. This is like a sheet. Neither have I. Absolutely. So anybody that like to travel, likes to get a workout and on the go. I mean they could roll it up if they wanted to, but like you said, a big bulky yoga mat isn't realistic for somebody that likes to travel with their workout equipment, likes to get a workout in, doesn't want to use a used yoga mat at the gym, so they can use this. It's a nice, easy, transportable piece of equipment. Wow, so there's really no excuse not to get your yoga fix when your traveling. Absolutely. Well this yoga mat comes in a variety of colors and you get free shipping. Just head on over to ActiveWearUSA.com. Anna, thank you so much for telling us about this travel yoga mat.
