Yoga mats are normally around 72″ long and have a width of 24″. Some practitioners prefer extra-wide mats (30″ ) for positions such as Surya Namaskar or hand-balances. Yoga mats range in thicknesses from 2 mm (lightweight) to 4–5 mm (standard or “classic”) and up to 7 mm for either high performance mats reserved for professional daily practices while guaranteeing little wear-out, or soft mats providing extra cushioning during yoga therapy.

Yoga mats are available in many colors and patterns. “Alignment mats” are printed with guides to proper alignment. Some companies print custom images on mats. Other items used to complement yoga mats are belts, blocks and bricks,
