What is the right size and thickness for your mat?
The more you exercise, the more you need a comfortable mat
- If you're doing a gentle activity (such as Pilates) and are barefoot and exercising on the ground: opt for a mat that is at least 10 mm thick with a soft, comfy texture
- If you do mainly dynamic exercises for strength training, 7 mm is sufficient.
For Pilates or strength training, your mat should ideally be as long or longer than your height.
What kind of exercises can you do with your mat?
Don't know which exercise to start with, or how to get your posture right?

YOGA OR PILATES MAT?
For Pilates, you need to be comfortable and isolated from the floor. For yoga however, while you still need a thick mat, the most important thing is grip. This is why we recommend choosing a mat that is suited to the kind of exercise you do.
My recipe for disinfecting and scenting your mat after each session is 300ml of water, 1 tablespoon of white vinegar, and 5 drops of lavender essential oil
To avoid it getting damaged after your workout, clean it and roll it up (not too tightly) using the straps provided
For private, individual, indoor use only.
Avoid wearing shoes while using it, do not place heavy objects on it.
Do not use hydroalcoholic gel to clean it.
