Yoga mat strap is a must to do yoga!
Yoga has become a very attractive form of exercise all over the world in recent years. It not only helps physical conditioning but also contributes to strengthening the mental condition of people who undertake these activities. Other than general exercises there are typical exercises which can cure people of a vast number of physical ailments. A yoga mat is necessary for performing these exercises as it has more mental significance than a physical one. It represents a space for your body and mind where both of them can relax and give the person performing yoga a sense of relief from the stresses that are present in everyday life.
Another advantage of a yoga mat is that it helps to maintain the stability of the body during the exercises. Some of the yoga exercises may become difficult to perform if the ground on which it is being carried out is slippery. The person carrying out the activity may fall down on the ground and hurt himself or herself. The yoga mat helps to provide a stable footing while doing these exercises. It is designed in such a way that even if the person sits down hard on it or falls on it, it absorbs the impact and prevents an injury from occurring to the individual.
Keep your mat in a strap
The size of a Yoga mat is usually 72 inches x 24 inches or 182 cm. x 60 cm. Sometimes people also prefer wider mats which may 30 inches or 78 cm in width. They vary from 2 mm to 7 mm in thickness and are made from PVC or a mixture of natural jute and rubber. A mat is essential for any person who performs yoga exercises regularly as without it the person cannot get any insurance cover for any injuries occurring during the exercises. The mat can be kept in a rolled up state held by a string or a strap.
Using a yoga mat strap to hold the yoga mat in a rolled up state is the easiest way of storing it. The strap also helps the person carry it around in a rolled up condition to the yoga class or any other place with ease. It is very easy to sling the rolled up mat over the shoulders with the help of the strap without feeling any inconvenience. It would feel the same as carrying a bag over the shoulders instead of carrying it in the hand. It also helps to keep the hands free for other purposes such as riding a bike or driving a motorbike.
Straps for yoga mats can be made from different kinds of materials like leather , polyester and cotton. They may have beautiful designs and colors, Velcro straps, buckles, easy release mechanisms or various other types of attachments to hold the mat in a rolled condition. They can vary from 3 feet to 6 feet in length. These straps can be used to secure yoga mats up to 7 mm in thickness in a roll which is about 5.5 inches in diameter. The straps made from leather are the most durable and long lasting whereas the others offer a wider range of colors and designs to choose from.
