With the yoga mat TPE, you choose a high-quality yoga mat, which is deliberately produced in the environment, offers a pleasant non-slip surface and can be rolled up with little weight into each of our yogat pockets. Try it.
A yoga mat from TPE is a lightweight and has a soft surface and a very good damping. It is a foamed plastic which has as a middle layer a flexible and almost tear resistant fabric. A yoga mat of TPE is made without latex. It is more environmentally friendly than a PVC yogamat and is produced with less energy. The durability of this pleasant yoga mat is somewhat less, however, depending on the use and nature of yoga.
Thermoplastic elastomers are plastics which are produced physically and without plasticizer and are also free from PVC and latex. However, they have very good properties which are becoming more and more similar to PVC and rubber due to improvements in production. At the same time, a yogamat made of TPE is at least as non-slip as a PVC yogamat. Due to the production process, this yoga mat is produced with much less energy and thus more environmentally friendly. In addition, a TPE yogamat is 100% biodegradable or recyclable.
Since a yoga mat made of TPE does not require latex, cadmium and rubber during production, and these substances can generally trigger allergies, the TPE yoga mats can be a good alternative for allergy sufferers. This makes TPE yoga mats an alternative for people who react to yoga mats made of PVC or natural rubber.
A big advantage of these yogamats is their low weight, despite a bigger thickness of approx. 6 mm. At the same time, this yogamat has good damping properties and high slip resistance. Therefore, it is best suited for all dynamic yoga styles such as Power Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga or Jivamukti Yoga. But also for yin yoga or for a more occasional yoga practice this yogamat is very suitable.
