I tried Yoga the first time when I was in high school, and it wasn’t very trendy back then, and the fact I took the classes with my grandmother’s friend probably tells a lot about that experience. However, a few months ago I started taking yoga again, and I take the BodyFlow classes at the local Gold’s Gym, and I absolutely love it. I have been going for that long that I think I’ll stick with it – and now I want to get some new gym and Yoga gear, and what I’d really like to get is a customized yoga mat. I have a yoga mat, and there is nothing wrong with it, but I saw someone carrying a customized one… and oh, I want one now! If you are looking for some extra inspiration for your workout, here are three different types of personalized yoga mats. Please leave in the comments if you have tried any of these or if you will, I would like to hear your opinion.
YogaMatic is probably my favorite place to get a customized yoga mat because you can literally design your own from your photo or graphic design art. You can even turn your kid’s drawing into a yoga mat. YogaMatic’s yoga mats are also thicker than normal yoga mats and uniquely designed for the company and it comes with a free yoga bag. This is probably the top choice when you are looking for custom yoga mats, and the price is higher too than the other options at $85.
GAIAM / CafePress
GAIAM custom yoga mats offer a selection of already designed yoga mats, but also giving you an easy option to make your own. You have five color options, you can add your own graphic or choose some some clip art graphics they have available. Not fully customizable, but if you are looking for something simple and adding your own text, this is one of the most inexpensive options for $29.50.
My Custom Yoga Mat
My Custom Yoga Mat has 20 different color options and they personalize the yoga mats by embroidering them. You can have your initials or a saying or even a logo embroidered. The embroidered yoga mats are $35.
