How to Carry a Yoga Mat?

Unless you've opted for a travel yoga mat, the shape and volume of your yoga mat can make it difficult to transport. Indeed, there's nothing more annoying than having to hold your mat with both hands to get to your yoga class, especially if you've been carrying it around with you all day (at work and on public transport). If you don't take public transport, you've probably already asked yourself how can I carry my yoga mat on my bike in a hands-free way? The answer is simple.

To easily transport your mat and prevent it from unrolling at every turn, there are two options: the yoga mat strap and the yoga mat bag. To help you choose, here are their main features.

I. The yoga mat strap

The yoga mat carrying strap is specially designed to enable you to take your mat with you wherever you go. It's very simple to use: just roll up your mat and slide each loop of the strap to its ends. The fabric of a strap is generally stretchable enough to adapt to any carpet thickness. This means you can carry your mat across your shoulder or on your back.

The yoga mat strap is also versatile. In fact, you can also use it as a yoga strap for stretching and improving the alignment of your asanas. A true two-in-one.

The only drawback of using a strap is that your mat won't be protected from dust and sun exposure. Don't worry, there's a solution to this problem: the yoga mat bag.

II. The yoga mat bag

The yoga mat bag is an alternative to the strap. It's not as simple as the strap, but it offers many more options. In fact, yoga bags have at least one pocket for your personal belongings (keys, phone, wallet etc.). Most of our bags have extra pockets inside and out to keep your belongings safe. Some yoga mat bags are large enough to also hold a few yoga accessories such as a yoga mat towel, strap or even a water bottle. They usually have an adjustable shoulder strap, so you can carry them on your shoulder or on your back.

One of the big advantages of these bags or yoga mat carriers is that they protect your mat from dirt and sunlight. This means your mat will last longer, especially if your mat is an ecological, biodegradable yoga mat.

Yoga mat bags come in all shapes, sizes and styles. You'll find them as simple as they are whimsical.

Take care of yourself and your mat!

Namaste 🙏
