The most popular Yoga Mats we sell to both students and teachers are the CLASSIC Yoga Mat and PREMIER & AMPIO™ Yoga Mats. Both brands are manufactured in Germany, are 4.5mm thick which offers a good balance of cushioning and excellent grip whilst remaining easy to roll up, carry and wash. We sell a complete range of EXTRA LONG Yoga Mat lengths to suit all adults and tall children. These lengths start at the standard size of 180cm and because we cut directly from a 30m length Roll of Yoga Mats, we also provide Mats that are 200cm, 220cm, 240cm and 260cm in length as standard.
The CLASSIC and PREMIER (and AMPIO™) Mats are made from similar material, but using slightly different manufacturing processes. The CLASSIC Mat material has a slightly more textured, bobbled effect and this is on both sides of the Mat. This gives the CLASSIC Mat a slightly better grip. The PREMIER and AMPIO™ Mats (80cm Extra Wide Yoga Mats), which are made of the same material, just different widths are textured on one side only and smooth on the other side and have a denser feeling about the material. Both types have been sold to Yoga teachers and studios for many years (the CLASSIC Mat has been supplied to the UK market by us for 30+ years). The CLASSIC Mat is also stickier, although all Mats tend to have a manufacturer's coating on them which can take a little while to wear off with use. This coating is to prevent the Mats which are cut off large 30m rolls from sticking together from the pressure on the material nearer the central core and cardboard tube on the rolls.
We also provide a thinner, Travel Yoga Mat called the CLASSIC LITE TRAVEL Mat which is the same Yoga Mat material to the CLASSIC Mat, but is only 2.5mm thick. This Yoga Mat comes in three Lengths: 180cm, 200cm and 220cm. The complete range of colours is listed below:
CLASSIC MATS: Purple, Dark Blue, Dark Green and Light Blue
PREMIER & AMPIO™ MATS: Purple, Dark Blue, Green, Red, Orange, Taupe and Black
CLASSIC & PREMIER LITE TRAVEL MATS: Purple, Dark Blue, Taupe and Red
