Make curled yoga mat corners a thing of the past
There's nothing more frustrating than unrolling your yoga mat, only to find the corners curling up, disrupting your practice and causing distractions. But fear not! In this guide, we'll explore effective ways to keep your yoga mat flat and stable throughout your sessions. We'll also introduce Mobeco's yoga mats, the ultimate solution to the rolling mat dilemma.
The Biggest Culprit: Plastic
Plastic mats are notorious for their tendency to hold their shape, resulting in frustrating curling edges. This can be both annoying and distracting during your practice. The nature of plastic materials often leads to their desire to retain their original shape, causing the mat to roll up. But don't worry, we have some simple tips to help overcome this issue.
How to Keep Your Yoga Mat Flat
If you already have a plastic mat, there are ways to encourage it to lay flat. One method is folding the mat in half and storing it away. This will help to stop the curling at the edges but may cause a fold mark in the centre.
Another option is to keep the mat flat by storing unrolled and hung with the help of a pants hanger. You can keep the yoga mat unrolled or folded in half if it is too long to be hung in your cupboards. If you use a pants clip at the edges only, the fold shouldn't be great enough to cause a fold mark in the centre.
By following these techniques, you can minimise the curling effect and enjoy a more stable practice with your plastic yoga mat.
