Yoga mats are specially fabricated mats used as an aid during the practice of hatha yoga to prevent hands and feet slipping during asana practice. They are also commonly known as non-slip mats, non-skid mats or sticky mats. With yoga's introduction in the West, many practitioners used towels or cotton mats on wooden floors. Rubber mats were introduced as an intermediate material to prevent cotton mats from slipping on wooden floors. Slipping of hands and feet was avoided by squirting a mist of water on the mats on the respective places of positions. If you practice yoga on the grass, sand, or even on a mat, it is important to know that standing postures require strength along with flexibility. For beginner yogis, it's important to have a more padded mat to that can slowly build joint and muscle strength and help prevent injury. While doing yoga positions, one needs to stretch the body in different angles. This also sometimes results in slipping of body parts, especially when it is practiced in a flat surface. Whether it's indoor on a wooden floor, or a mosaic or marble floor, the body is subject to muscle cramps and fatigues if it gets slipped in undesired directions during practice of yoga. Yoga Mat helps practitioners to keep their hold strong on the surface due to its anti-slipping nature. It also provides a sort of insulation between the human body and the ground. This prevents any loss of heat, charge or energy from the body to the ground and thereby provides a thermo-insulation. For these reasons, Yoga Mat is considered necessary for every yoga practitioner.
